Seriously, just me venting about a shitty couple of days.
So, let’s see: everyone’s mood crashed yesterday, including mine. I still feel crappy today. I didn’t sleep well. I had disturbing dreams that weren’t restful, and even in my dreams I got sick of them and put my foot down and said ‘no more’.
My computer arbitrarily decided to seize up, but only in one aspect. Unfortunately it was the aspect that made it impossible to do anything but turn it off and back on. Maybe the update released today will fix it.
Then I find out from a friend that none of my art print/posters are showing up on Indy Planet. Great, I think. Yet another hassle. So I write Ka-Blam, and guess what! They decided, without consulting anyone, that it just wasn’t effective to offer prints for sale on Indy Planet. Thanks, guys! Just like that, bang goes a chunk of what little I make off my work. And of course, conveniently I was neither asked nor notified until someone else notices and I’m alarmed.
Maybe I can manage to send out prints once a week if people order them. I’d just like to thank Ka-Blam for destroying what little existed of automated order fulfillment, so now I have even more to keep me from doing my actual work.
Sure, I can sell prints at shows. At the maybe one show I do every month or two, where I tend to sell a couple of prints, at most.
Some days, I question why I even get out of bed…or why I keep doing the things that I do.
Nothing ever seems to go right for long.
