I've worked more than usual over the last few months. Gotten more hours at my regular hourly thing. Working more days than I've done before. Not only that, I've gotten another job, which is starting as a summer temp job for 6-7 weeks, but I've spent two days there this week to prepare, and was told there are opportunities for me to come in some more days before I start the summer work period.
For me, this is great. My income hasn't been quite comfortable enough previously that I've had no money worries, but now it's absolutely getting to the point where it is.
But on the other foot, this does mean less free time. At my hourly employment, I often work Saturdays. I worked today, even. And the summer thing, and any extra days, is full-time—for me meaning a work day is from 08:30 to 17:15, not counting the commute.
This... has the unavoidable consequence of making Pure Corruption suffer. I've talked before about how since it's something I don't make any money from, it's a hobby, and has to compete for me free time with other things I also really want to do that I don't make any money from. Yes, I fully acknowledge this means that I might not have the full level of dedication to Pure Corruption that I wish I had. It's something I've tried working on, too.
But today's the birthday of both me and Pure Corruption. And while I failed you last year, this time, I've got a double for you. Both Chapter 056: Fire Water Burn and Chapter 057: Nooks and crannies have been published. Those two were originally one chapter, but it ran too long so I split it up.
Thanks to everyone who's still sticking with me, and I'm still adamant about seeing this project through.
Until next time!
