To be quite honest, I've only got a little bit of time before I have to get to my job, and I've sat here for a while staring at this blank post, wondering what I should write. Today, I've got just about nothing.
So I'm going to do a little thinking out loud. Here's what's on my mind.
I'm working on writing this comic series, right? That's been the defining work of this year so far. I think that's great. It's one of the best things I've written, probably.
But how far do I take it?
Right now, I don't have anyone to do the art for it. Asking someone to sign on for this is basically a full-time commitment. The people who can do art full time tend to already be doing art full time, but for pay and stuff.
Essentially what I've been doing is crafting blueprints. Drawing up plans for building after building. So the question is then - how much of this town should I map out when I don't have anyone to start manufacturing it?
Right now, I'm almost done with five issues. My plan is that it'll be the end of the first arc. I guess if I'm keeping up the town metaphor, I'll have laid out plans for the first neighborhood. Enough to show someone that this is a project that I'm interested in and have invested in, but not too much, hopefully.
But what next? After the first arc, should I move onto planning a different town entirely? Would that show more range and growth? Or should I keep building this world I've already started?
And whose hands can I possibly get these blueprints into?
