TODAY'S NEWS: Haunting is definitely a skill, and not all ghosts are good at it. Most can't manage much beyond random thumps or a slight breeze that ruffles the pages of a book. Most people won't think "Hey, by the way that candle flame flickered, I can tell that I need to relay a message to some stranger that his mother loved him and she actually buried his valuable Pokémon card collection in a coffee can in the back yard," so lots of ghosts don't resolve the issues that are keeping them from crossing over to the Great Beyond. Sad, but true.

Anyway, I didn't quite finish this for Friday, so I waited until today to post it. I think I've figured out my Creative Efforts Formula: I accomplish approximately 50% of my creative goals for any given week. So last week I was aiming at three comics, a Newsletter and novel writing. I managed two comics. Perhaps my strategy should be to set my goals at three or four times what I'd like to accomplish, thus increasing my productivity to 150% - 200% of desired levels. Of course, this method will also increase my stress levels about the Accomplishment to Goal Gap, but it might be worth it.

Sometimes I think creative pursuits are just an artistic path to Crazytown.
