How am I going to do three comic strips a week?
What am I going to make more Slamdance strips about?
If I can’t do three strips a week, what am I going to write four blog posts a week about?
How am I going to make time between my day job, spending time with my wife and dogs and doing house and yardwork?
What do I take three Instagram photos per day of?
What do I want to be?
What do I want to do next?
How exactly do I get behind all the stuff I’m making?
How do I get the home loan paid off?
How do I publicise Paid to Play?
What do I do next?
How do I make more money?
What do I do that others value?
How do I consistently think positive?
Oh, sure, this style and beauty maven calls it “Makeup Transformation,” but we all know that it’s cosplay!
The only thing missing is the appearances at cons…
(I wonder if Maya Washington would do a Martha Washington?)

I’ve never been a great one for politics. Not out of any particular stand against the system, mind you; just laziness. If you’d asked me who I stood with and why, yeah, I’d probably be ashamed to admit I had no real idea. I just ticked the box that seemed would get me in the least trouble.
But the State Government of Queensland has just called an election on January 31st, and for once, I want to be able to cast my vote based on more than a vague idea shaped by peer opinion. I’d like to be able to look people in the eye and say I cast the best vote I could given what I could find out in the time I had.
I might vote wrong, but damn it, for this election and those to follow I want to vote shameless.
Shame: The fear that others will judge us unworthy of truly connecting with them.
It holds us back every day from taking risks, of discovering and embracing our passions. What if I look like a weirdo? What if no one talks to me any more? What if everyone starts looking at me like, “Oh – you’re that guy.“?
The thing, as a lady who goes by “Shameless Maya” discovered over the course of a year of social media experimentation, is that most of what we’re afraid of isn’t real. She started the Shameless Challenge in the name of becoming as confident in herself as those around her, then challenged others to follow in her footsteps.
And as someone who’s let shame hold himself back more often than he can count, I’m finding the Shameless Challenge rather tempting. But what’s really involved?
Rather than write about 2014, I was seized by the urge to do a video about it (new webcam, new format, thrill of novelty, etcetera). And here it is, in 16:9 widescreen:
Glad I’m getting better at this!
