As anyone who has been reading this blog knows, I have been really pushing myself with my Wing Chun training. Every day, I aim to do my forms at least 10 times per day and 1000 punches per day. I have been doing them on my breaks at work. However, the problem is that leaves me with little to no time to do anything else. Therefore, today I decided to cut both those numbers in half. I did my forms 5 times and did 500 punches.
Why the sudden cut? What is so pressing? Well, aside from being a martial artist, I am also a writer. Many years ago I completed an epic comic book, for which I have finally found an artist. I told him that while he is busy drawing it, I will be busy coming up with a plan to get as much traffic to this thing as possible so we can hit the ground running. (NOTE: This comic will be on the web…because printing is just too expensive, not to mention risky.)
So today I used my extra time to read through 82 pages of notes that I took on how to succeed with a webcomic. (By “succeed,” I don’t mean “get filthy rich.” At this point I would just like to get the story out there!) To my surprise, I wound up being able to condense the notes to 4-6 pages. Needless to say, this is much more manageable.
The work isn’t done, so I will be reducing the Wing Chun training for a while, but the good news about that is I will be attending the advanced level class, which is held every Sunday on the Skidmore College campus. So it all balances out!
