the word "communication" in relief on a metal grate

Seems like the more I prioritize it offline, the less I do on.

But I’ve enjoyed the various instances of the 2006/2016 meme that have come across my feeds, so here’s a version of same.

2006: Working on The Rules for Hearts, also minicomics. Helped gut a house in New Orleans. Acquired Snag.

Had braces. Went to my first BG Literary retreat. Had a LiveJournal, username “thisisnotanlj.”

LJ userpic, November 2006:

2016:Working on novel which will likely have a different title by the time it’s done therefore I won’t share its working title. Plus some comics which may also have different titles than their working titles therefore ditto. Had an essay published in The V-WordWent to my tenth BG Literary retreat. (Can that be true? I think it can.)  Taught comics writing in Denmark. Mourned, organized.

Selfie after most recent haircut with same stylist & friend as 2006:

Basically the same pose and also yeah I’ve had variations on the same asymmetrical haircut for more than a decade, fight me.

N.B. I was already going gray in 2006, but I wasn’t letting it show yet.

And here’s 2016 Snag, as recently documented by Jay Edidin:

Ooooh, a novel! I struggle mightily with comics, though I do read them, and even read Scott McCloud's (?) book on how they work. I'll be really happy to have a new novel by you and be in my natural habitat, though.

Your cat is very handsome.

Thank you!! I've been working on said novel for a frustratingly long time, but have high hopes for the current iteration actually managing to hang together. (Also have high hopes to increase word count substantially over the next few days away from dayjob.)
