I hate it when they pardon the turkeys.
I love this part of the year (this holiday in particular) because everyone kind of calms down, takes a deep breath, and reflects on how the year went. We have a moment of silence for all the things we screwed up (or maybe got right), and all the opportunities we missed (or maybe grabbed onto with both hands). We do that for a bit and then slowly pivot to thinking about next year and what it might bring.
I mentioned this in my chat with BKV, but if you didn’t listen to that yet, I told him that, earlier in the week, I sent my last X-book off to press. Mike, Sasha and I had also gotten the last issue of Decorum to the printers few weeks before then, and so, in the span of a couple weeks and with pretty solid timing, I got to close (and lock) the door on two pandemic-spanning projects and start thinking about (and working on) what’s next.
A lot of my time was spent hammering out what the (schedule for the) next 18 months of this place looks like. So here’s a little bit of that:
Obviously, most of what got white-boarded is too spoiler-y to share, but I did want you guys to get an idea of scale of stuff that’s in production right now.
It’ a lot, and I’m incredibly thankful that we’re getting to do this here, and in this way, because it’s just a fun way of making something...and incredibly exciting.
