Month: January 2017

Productivity Report, 2nd edition: new stories to share!

Threads went on an unplanned, unannounced hiatus this month because of all the work I’ve done to set up new projects. The last few weeks have seen a lot of behind-the-scenes work on my sites while theme code was cleaned up for Threads and Willow’s Tale. I took the opportunity to freshen up the look for Threads and make some minor tweaks to Willow‘s look. I have two more themes to work out and then I’ll make some changes to the Terminus home page.

When I first started this website, I kind of had in mind the idea of using only two looks for the comics: one for Threads or any longer story, one for short stories, both with the same color scheme. Then I started Willow’s Tale and immediately changed my mind, but my old code was a pain to edit so I put it off. It’s been a long time coming and I’m glad to finally get all this CSS off my back.

Of course, Threads wasn’t the only thing put on hold during this month. I wasn’t able to get Willow’s Tale finished, either. All this set-up was more time-consuming than expected and while I was able to draw some pages, they weren’t nearly enough. February is going to see a lot of make-up work, especially since there are have two new stories to manage at the same time.

Now onto those new stories:

Fear Without A Name: a 70-page story about monsters born of fear and a stranger without a name. It updates on Mondays for now.
My Resident Ghost: a slice-of-life story about a guy that moves into a haunted apartment, and other supernatural nonsense. It starts tomorrow and updates on Wednesdays.

They’re two very different stories but I hope you like both of them. MRGhost is going to get a different look in the next few days, so you have that to look forward to as well.

Until next time.

Productivity report, 1st edition: much to do.

We’re eleven days into 2017, and I’ve spent most of it trying to figure out what needs to be done this year, and how I’m going to make it happen. There were a lot of things that I wanted to do last year but never finished, like redoing the CSS for my webcomics and drawing the rest of the pages for Willow’s Tale.

I put together a list of things that I want to do this year and, using those goals as the base, I’ve built up a schedule for the year. The entire year. Things may get moved around a bit later on, but I wanted the clearest starting point possible. To help with that, I also picked up a notebook to keep track of those deadlines and my day-to-day progress, which can be used to keep you all up to date on my work.

So now, we come to the meaning of this post’s title. On my deviantArt page, I’ve used my journal entries as a way to report on my progress over time, and I’m going to do that here, starting the count from the top. (My dA count will stay as it is.)

I’m going to be starting some new stories in the future, so information about them will be coming up soon. I’ll also start livestreaming regularly, starting later this month.

Productivity Reports will be posted on the last day of every month. I’m looking forward to a great year. ^^
