I do not think that word means what you think it means

Author celebrates his hiatus from blogging which began on Friday by making one post yesterday and four posts today.

In answer to his question about the production values in Shingu my opinion is that they're excellent. They're not at Haibane Renmei level, but nothing else is. but I don't recall any serious characterization drifts in the art, or serious continuity mistakes, or anything like that.

It's true that a lot of the screen caps you've seen were selected carefully, but at least for me the primary consideration was to avoid revealing spoilers. I haven't selected things because they were particularly visually impressive. On the contrary, the most visually impressive scenes in the series are loaded with spoilers, so I've had to skip them.

UPDATE: I've noticed on more than one occasion that when someone makes a post that says, "I am burned out and feel like I don't have anything to say, so I'm going to take a break from blogging for a while", that usually indicates the end of a hiatus, not the beginning of one. (Not always, of course.)

What happens is that for a while you can't work up the energy to make a post. Then as the energy starts to come back, the first thing you post is about how tired you are. The next day you're back at it again.

1 Sometimes just the act of sitting down and writing something, anything, can get the creative juices flowing. Some of my best entries started as just spontaneous stream-of-consciousness writing. Of course, a lot of that gets thrown out of the entry once it starts to take shape, but I think just getting started is an important step.

I announced a case of blogblock on July 5th.

On July 7th, I had three posts.  Then the USGP was cancelled, Christijan Albers was fired from Spyker, the Phillies lost their 10,000th game, you talked about Mikuru's eyes, and what was that about blogblock again?  I forget...

Enclose all spoilers in spoiler tags:
      [spoiler]your spoiler here[/spoiler]
Spoilers which are not properly tagged will be ruthlessly deleted on sight.
Also, I hate unsolicited suggestions and advice. (Even when you think you're being funny.)

At Chizumatic, we take pride in being incomplete, incorrect, inconsistent, and unfair. We do all of them deliberately.
