Six Pack weblog
I haven't really been feeling the comic lately, so I've been really slack on working on the updates. I think I've mentioned before that my policy is "If you're not into it, don't force it" - I don't want it to become something I loathe, a chore, where it's not fun anymore. I'm really high stress right now and that's part of it, but there are other factors too.|
Occasionally I go back and re-read my original story to get excited about things again. The process of developing this story went like this: I wrote a story for National Novel Writer's Month, and later adapted it to a script, which is what I worked off to draw up the pages. Well, in re-reading my original story, I found something(s) that I changed for the script. I know WHY I changed it at the time, but looking back on it now, I'm not happy with the change. And when I was inking and lettering that part of the story, I kept thinking "This isn't right... I'm pretty sure this isn't how I had it... Really? Is that really right?" But that was what my script said, so I went ahead and put it in.
But I should have listened to my instincts, because honestly, I had it right the first time - the way it was in my original story.
So after some thinking, and a lot of mucking around staring at the next several pages without feeling any joy in working on them, I decided to go back and re-work my script a little and have to re-draw several pages. The changes I plan to make DO affect pages that are already uploaded, so I'll have to work backwards on a few things. It's not a major change to what's already up, but it is a change I want to make before I think I'm going to feel better about moving forward.
Therefore we're on a bit of a hiatus - changed old pages will be posted here, and when I'm ready to move ahead I'll make another note here. I don't know how long it will be.
I'm still having fun with Pimo Is Awesome, but I feel guilty about working on it when I haven't updated Six Pack... so I'm going to actually give myself permission to work on that and NOT Six Pack during this little hiatus. I'll try for updates on Wednesdays.
The good news is that in a few months I'll be pretty much done with school, and uh, well, who knows what will happen then!
