I had relatively new job that went through a lot of changes. By the start of the year I had lost my entire team and also been transferred to a new team with all new people. Shortly thereafter I was asked to do things that I had not done in a long time in a manner I had not done before. I was asked to be in the office every day, sit in an open cubicle environment, and with a lot of management oversight. After 10 years of working from home, being basically my own boss, and dictating the work I did on a daily basis, this was a radical change that I found exhausting and not entirely inspiring. On top of that, I was restoring my grandmother's house that I had inherited at the end of 2014. It needed a lot of work and took until June to get it on the market. And we are still working on it, and still have not sold it. There were also some serious issues going on with family that I will not get into here. In addition to that, one of my collaborators fell very ill and one lost his job and had to focus on starting his own business. Needless to say, I had a lot going on. There was not much time left for fun and not much energy left for creativity.
Oh, did I fail to mention the two new kittens that have been added to our household that make setting up action figures for the purpose of stop-motion animation completely impossible.
Imagine what she could do to an action figure!
I am currently working on the opening scene which is one of my favorites. I can't wait to share a sneak preview in the next post!
