In my introduction blog post, I said that I’m not good at talking about myself. That doesn’t really apply to talking about my comics, I guess. I love to talk about my comics. I’ve been doing it right here all week! In a way, though, I think that was all part of my introduction, getting up to speed in regards to what my webcomics are. Now that that’s out of the way, I can talk about other things. Such as whatever happened today.
Today, I got to have my cast removed. Having my arm free and unrestrained is pretty awesome. I can move it around. I can bend it. I can scratch myself. But it’s still broken. I can’t use it for pushing, pulling or carrying stuff. I can’t bend it too far, or fully extend it. It’ll be interesting to see how well I can draw with it. I already tried to get back into working on my comic before, and I imagine it may be a little easier without the restraint of the cast. But seeing as I should be taking it easy still, I probably won’t be able to do a whole lot of work at a time.
That, and the fact that the holiday season by now is in full swing – during which I was planning a break from the comic anyway – means that the comic will not be returning just yet. But I can work on it, and I can make use of my right arm a bit more than I could yesterday. And, it bears repeating; I can scratch it. This is a good day.
