Early in my writing efforts, I mostly did short stories. Scenes, really. I'd imagine a whole story around the scene I wrote and drew. I did a series of scenes about two private detectives hired to solve a 20-year old murder. I had no idea who did it, why it mattered, or how it would end. I just wanted to draw and write dramatic, cool scenes.
Weirdly enough, from my perspective now at least, I drew it on my chalkboard! I'd do panel one, fiddle with the dialogue, fix a mouth here and an arm there, and then erase the whole thing and do the next section.
It's so wild to think of that now, with the instant public sharing we do on the Internet, and the permanent nature of it.
I know some people do comics online and then delete them for whatever reason, while many are left up permanently, or permanently-as-far-as- we-know, even if the creator moves on and never visits the site again.
Not sure if I have a point here. I guess the compulsion to make stories is in a lot of us. These days it seems like wanting to be seen and recognized is an important part of it, just the act of making it is a powerful driver in itself, even if nobody else ever sees it.
Do you create much, as far as writing, drawing or comics, that nobody ever sees?
