tl;dr Interrupting this unintentional hiatus to announce an intentional one.
Diligent readers will have noticed by now that superpowersdaily has not been quite as daily as of late. It has had skipped days before, but rarely this many in a row.
The fact is this: I simply haven’t been able to reliably keep the queue going. Although I still enjoy thinking them up, Mostly-Useless Superpowers can’t really be a priority for me right now. Especially not one I stress myself out about updating daily.
The submission box will still be open, and I may post related media as I come across it, but for now I will not be posting daily powers.
I do have plans to return. I already have a few powers saved up—they just aren’t in image form yet. Additionally, have been thinking about present more varied content to present in the future. I will continue to post powers, of course, but I would also like to do exercises to flesh out the characters that might have these powers, and what they might actually do with them. Character profiles, little comics, illustrations—someday I’d like to put together a book of mostly-useless superheroes and villains. However, the feasibility of taking on such a project while I’m a graduate student is… peripheral at best.
Happy holidays to all, and see you again in 2014!
