So Stray Sod has been running for a month now, and it's been really great having a webcomic again! Even the oh-no-I'm-sick-and-there's-no-more-buffer thrill has been an exhilaration. If you haven't seen it yet, why not give it a read? It updates every Saturday.
I'm slowly adding it to different directories and social media sites. For now, you can...
A little experiment in productivity. I've been timing myself for 30 minute intervals, both to see how much I can do in that time, and to see how long I can stay focused on one artistic task. When the 30 minutes is up, an alarm goes off, and I switch to another project.
I've been doing this the past two days, and here's some of what I've accomplished:
I think it's working, though I'm finding switching tasks every 30 minutes a little tiring, so I'm starting to cheat a little and spend maybe an hour on one thing, and an hour and a half on another.
I've just got to find a groove that works. Since I started my new "irl" job last month I've been sick on and off all that time, so I've been obeying my pounding sinuses and sleeping a lot, rather than whipping them into submission. So I have no rhythm, and it's making drawing a chore rather than a pleasure. This cannot be borne!
I'm still trying to figure out what to do for June NaNoMangO. I really want to use it to get started on a couple of submissions. Thing is, I'm doubting the merit of my stories. Both of them are ones I've had inside my head for a very long time, so I'm not sure why. Usual creative self doubt, I suppose.
I solidified one script last night, but writing a script is one thing. I felt I needed to scribble up a couple of characters to see how I really feel about them. And y'know, I think I like 'em still. So much so that I can't see limiting their story to a mere handful of pages... But then, I did first create the story for a full-length animated feature storyboard project back in college. (Some of you may recognize these pieces: 123 )
