Hey, folks! I am officially back! I had thought to unplug and take a break until the end of September, but my eyes have healed, my brain has cleared and I am back to my writing, creating, fun having self. Eyes, you ask?
Well, it turns out if you 1) spend a huge amount of time on the computer and 2) spend a lot of that time with your nose practically pressed to the screen, your eyes break. What happened to me is that I started to see jagged lines cutting across everything I looked at, kind of as if I were looking at the world through a broken cellphone screen. Sometimes, there would be swirling lines all around the edges of my vision.
This was a little weird and scary. It also made it so I couldn’t safely drive anywhere, as I could never be sure when I would suddenly see all these crazy jagged lines breaking up everything I looked at. So, it was time to rest my eyes. But, after a few days, they seem fine, and I feel fine, and so back at it!
I do plan on better habits now as I return to my creative efforts. I am going to make sure to look away from the screen for at least 20 seconds every twenty minutes, sit back from the screen and make sure the room is lit. I will also wear my glasses! Hopefully, my eyes won’t break again if I am more careful.
The Patreon is back as well, with a new video there right now, and a new installment of Carrolwood coming Monday along with a new GIF. Join me! Please! It’s gonna be fun, and you will get exclusive first looks at all my creative efforts! Plus, I will tell you how awesome you are. Actually, I will tell you that anyway.
You are awesome!
