Excuses, Excuses (or, Blame New Jersey)

I’m going to let you in on a little secret: my blog posts are almost never written on the day they are posted. I write them up days, even weeks in advance and schedule them so they post around noon. I feel terribly productive if by Monday evening I have posts scheduled for the rest of the week.

On Wednesday I was suddenly sent to New Jersey for work. Thus, I wasn’t even at my computer when I “posted” about Moominland Midwinter, my September Experiments, or 24-Hour Comics Day.

Unfortunately, due to this disruption in my schedule, I did not feel up to creating a 24-page comic in 24 hours. My husband didn’t either, as this week he’d had to deal with various stressors as well, including busted speakers and a busted foot. So we decided to sit this one out.

Maybe next year, eh?

24-Hour Comics Day

For the first time, I will be participating in 24-Hour Comics Day, wherein you produce a 24-page comic in 24 hours. I’m doing it at home alongside my dear husband, whose 3D art is not exactly portable. That’s fine. The closest host venues are Baltimore and Norfolk, both a bit of an unwieldy drive away. If I’m going to stay up late being silly, I’d much rather do it from the comfort of my own home, where at least I can walk around in my jammies.

Because this is my first time, I’m going simple: retelling a famous tale with chickens. Just which famous tale will be revealed afterward. Look for a recap post early next week.

Anyone else participating in this (or any other) ridiculous internet challenge?
