Sorry about last week’s missed newspost, everyone! Last week’s post happened to fall on “friend Christmas.” I’m the world’s worst adult, and spent the day eating so much holiday junk food that I got sick and had to go to bed rather than finish writing. I hope you were all equally hedonistic and indolent this holiday season!
Now’s the bit where we’re supposed to buckle down, right? New Year’s Resolution time! These are my comic-related goals this year:
Finish book two of my comic.
I suppose I had better finish book one, first! I was doing pretty well for a while making a page every week, but I stopped working on my comic altogether for a few weeks because I was unwell, and haven’t started up again since I started feeling better. The trouble with creating is that it always feels so good to have made something, but it’s always so hard to find the motivation to actually do the work! A friend of mine recently reminded me that action leads to motivation, and not the other way around. Time to stop waiting for motivation to strike.
Finish scripting the comic.
Or at least finish an outline of sorts, if not a complete script. I really need to pull this project together a little bit. I recently thought that I had lost a huge portion of script somehow, and after some frantic searching through my files I realized that I had somehow been working in two different documents – identically named, but in different locations. There are also little ideas floating around in the notes on my phone, and probably handwritten in various journals as well. I feel as though I should sift through everything, get it all in one place, and finish it while I'm still excited about my ideas.
Translate some of my comic into Russian.
Those of you who know me a little bit may know that I study Russian/Soviet history, and that I’m currently applying to grad schools. Of course, a Russian historian has to be able to read Russian, so I’ve been studying pretty intensively for the last eight months or so. My goal is to be comfortable enough with the language to be able to translate something as colloquial as my comic in a few months.
So DDers, do you guys have goals or resolutions related to your comic this year?
