Wherein I Become a Butt-Monkey to Webcomic Time

When it comes to my webcomic Echo Effect, I’m a total plotter. Years’ worth of my characters’ lives have long been planned, to the point where I already know what the end will be.

You guys won’t be seeing that end anytime soon, though, since—thanks to the wonders of Webcomic Time—it’s going to take four months to post just the first two days of those years plotted. (This past February was the first month.)

The third day only takes one comic strip to get through, and the fourth day is shorter still at just one-fourth of a strip, but still…


Funnily enough, all the novels I’ve written in the past have usually had plots that took place over just a few days. Oh, irony…

    1. Yep! Wonderfalls is one of my favorite shows. Fun to know you like it, too! It's hard to find someone who's even heard of it most of the time...

  3. Wow! It'll take a long time to get through the days, but that's a good thing, right? We'll have more time to read your wonderful comic! :)

    1. Haha, true, but I tend to be an impatient person, so knowing that it's going to take a while to reach certain plot points drives me batty sometimes! XD

  4. Ironic indeed. I plot, my characters argue, I change my mind. May you have better fortune! :)

    1. I'm hoping I will! My characters would change things all the times back when I was writing novels, but I seem to have more control over them when making comics...
