Journal Entry: Mon Sep 15, 2014, 5:17 AM
So, last night I basically went over everything I want to draw for the rest of the year. You know, I gave myself something of an itinerary of what needs to get done between now and and the next three and a half months (oh god, is that all that's left of the year?). I don't necessarily need to share it here, but I sort of just want all my thoughts out there. In other words, feel free to ignore this post if it isn't something that interests you. ^_^
- Assuming there aren't any hiatuses (I'd like there not to be), there are 45 Rain updates between now and the end of 2014. Add to that, that there are going to be two-pagers and the first ever (and hopefully last ever) three-pager. But also subtract from that, that I've got the next few weeks of updates ready to go already. Altogether, there are still an actual 42 pages (not updates) I have to draw between now and December 31st. Anyway, this is the one thing that absolutely MUST be adhered to. Don't worry, it's not as bad as it probably sounds. XD
- I have half of Chapter C scripted (incidentally, the beginning and the end of it). It would be nice if I could have it completely written out before September is over. Then I could get on drawing it. It would be REALLY nice if I could finish drawing it and get Volume 3 out for the holidays. I'm not making any promises though, as it does add approximately another 24 pages or so to my workload for the rest of the year. Still, if I can keep up a steady pace, that should be pretty easy.
- Sometimes drawing things other than the comic makes for a nice reprieve. There are a couple holidays and special days that I'd love to make a piece for. Not to mention, I'm nearing 1,000 followers for the Rain Facebook page (which certainly deserves something special if I do indeed hit it this year). In addition, fan art ideas and art for other stories are coming to me constantly, and I would just hate to not have those go to paper. If I'm counting all this correctly, this could end up being an additional 12 images or so.
- Once again, Chapter C and the extra art aren't mandatory like the main story pages, but it would be wonderful if I could attend to them. And it's all extremely plausible (keep in mind, the comic IS my job; it's not like go to an office for 40 hours a week on top of this or anything). In fact, if I were to do exactly one page/piece everyday starting now, I could achieve all of this and kick back for nearly ALL of December. Unexpected things have been known to come up in the past, but I'll be giving it my all to see if I can achieve these goals.
And that's what I'll be doing for the rest of 2014. Wish me luck, and I hope you guys all have a great day! <3
