Updating Everyday is Hard

When I went into this challenge, I thought that it would be easy, because I almost always feel like I have something to say. However, it’s hard to figure out what to write about once I finally sit down to blog. Not only do I have to think about the readers, but also about who could stumble upon my page. If it’s a potential employer, and they see a blog post about my particular views on something and they don’t agree with them, what happens then?

Then again, I’m not sure I would want to work with anyone that doesn’t respect my views. But I’m going to stop there before I get started on a tangent.

The point is, updating everyday is difficult, especially on days where I feel like I have nothing to say. BUT! I made this challenge last until the end of the month, and dammit, I’m gonna’ stick with it. I’m going to update everyday until June 30th.

Once July rolls around, I think I’m going to try Graphic Novel Writing Month again.

I did that last year and I successfully wrote a 220-page script in one month. BOY did that feel good! It helped to reinforce the idea that yes, comics was what I wanted to do, and I got so emotionally involved with the characters I wrote and drew in the project and I got so invested in the events that happened with them.

So this July, I’m doing the challenge again.

This time, however, I think I’ll cut the page count down to 200 (because 220 was f**king insane!) I already have the idea figured out for what I want to write. I’m super excited for it!

However, I’ll be doing that PLUS reviews for Self Publisher’s Nexus magazine, a fan comic with my friend Chloe, editing another graphic novel, and several illustration projects.

Well, I can put the fan comic project on hold for a bit: my friend I’m collaborating with is in Japan, with very little time to get online, so I can wait to work on that project until she comes back.

Everything else will have to be dealt with carefully. I think I can do this, though!

Don’t Forget to Be Awesome, and I’ll see you all tomorrow!

P.S. I’m totally going with some friends to see the premier of Brave¬†tonight! SO excited!
