At 25,266. Just past the halfway point. It is a big relief to get this far.

I'm finishing up at just over 22k tonight. Didn't get as far as I'd hoped for the weekend. Just found it hard to stay motivated.

I should put a language warning on this.

This is a hillarious blog post of the Presidential Race in D&D terms.

I'm doing this again this year. I did it last year and managed to make the 50,000 word goal. It's a lot of work, but I think it's worth it.

I should be able to make it.

I started giving feedback early on. I don't know if you already have me down.

Because I was asked to post this:

Crafty Games to Publish Mistborn RPG


Creators of Spycraft 2.0 to develop RPG Adaptation of Epic Fantasy
Trilogy by Wheel of Time Author Brandon Sanderson

I imagine it could be quite difficult for partners to work together in this.

It could be difficult. A lot maker's of web-comic seem to prefer to both draw and write exactly for this reason. I think one problem is that the work doesn't get split evenly. Depending on the style of the artwork, the artwork can take far longer than the writing on the production side. I've seen several sites where the writer and artist are seperate and the writer is sometimes writing entire short stories/novels while waiting for the artist to catch up. Some writers fill-in as letterers and colorists to help ease the artwork production load.

Still some writer's have found success by down-scaling the artwork significantly so, in theory, they can produce more story. This carries the potential of not grabbing much of the audience if the story/jokes aren't absolutely brilliant.

Anyways, I am interested in what people are saying since I drew those three images rather quickly and couldn't really quite see how they relate.

I kept thinking of something like:
panel 1 "I'm so glad to fly away from his cliche place..."
panel 2 " ignorant boyfriend..."
panel 3 ".. and those boring teaparties."
