Looking back on 2019

This will be the last post of the year so we might as well finish with an overview of 2019. I've not been super busy on this blog, making only 14 posts, but it has been a super busy year all round, not just in the comics department but in real life too!

Most significantly, a ran a Kickstarter for the first issue of Get Woke, which achieved target and is now about to go to print. Really pleased with this although slightly disappointed it only squeezed past the finish line by a meagre £8. Still, we made it! This means I'll now have a physical copies of both Get Woke AND Killer Bytes, my first anthology. Which means I have product that I can take to conventions and sell.

The time spend working on Get Woke and the subsequent campaign pretty much consumed all spare time set aside for writing new comics. I've been fairly busy in the lettering department, adding words to 3 comics for the Tales from the Udderverse anthology and a paid lettering job for a comic about a psychotic elephant titled 'Cello'.

I do love lettering comics but I much prefer writing them. The idea pile has continued to grow throughout 2019 but turning those ideas in to scripts has almost ground to a halt. For the first time in its 11 years of publication, I didn't manage to write a story for my own anthology Hallowscream. Fairly annoyed at myself for that.

Make more time for writing is definitely the lesson to be learned from the last 12 months. I believe I will actually need to set aside a block of time in my daily schedule, to make sure I do nothing but write in that time.

Anyway, have a great New Year and watch this space in 2020.
