Hey folks! Uh, long time no see, huh?
If you’ve been following me on Twitter (which is quickest for me to post updates haha) you may noticed that I essentially have no free time anymore since grad school started XD In fact, any free time I have is usually reserved for MORE readings and/or catching up on sleep. Today’s an odd day where I have the entire day free -- so as you can tell, I’m updating you all on everything Ara & Celi now!
First things first: yes, the “a page every two weeks plan” FAILED. That much was obvious. I’ve only done exactly one page, inked. Just inked. (Not counting the five pages I did in a week with barely any sleep for a Sparkler pitch. Yes, I did that too, whoops 8D ) Needless to say, I’m just going to keep chugging along on school, and if I can, just do whole pages in any free FREE time. Who knows? Maybe I’ll have three to four pages done by Christmas...
Now for the other stuff:
I’ve started posting Chapter 3 on Tapastic and GMI Manga! What I’ll be doing is posting one or two pages each Friday (via scheduled posting) on either site, up until the last updated page. This is a three-page update, since the sequence works as a whole.
Here is the GMI link!
Here is the Tapastic link!
Sad news: my host ComicDish is closing down for good. Originally it was going to be in November but Sam changed the date to February for better moves. It’s a much better date to have for sure, but that still means that I have to look for a new home now. At this rate, it seems I may actually have to fork over money to create a new personal site -- since my preferred option SmackJeeves kept giving people virus ads if they’re not logged on and also it seems...blagh. If anyone has any suggestions of any sites or webhosts, I’ll take them. So far a friend suggested Dreamhost, which I’ll look at in the meantime.
It’s still an awful feeling though. It means a lot of changes in print media I have plus seeing a site that should’ve gotten traction but never seemed to close down. For me, ComicDish was the best and none will come close to it. Sam was the best host manager ever. Will never complain.
That’s about it from me for now. I’ll be at Midwest Comicon this November, so I’m hurrying to see if I can send some of Chapter 3 to print! Fun times!
Thanks so much for reading, y’all have a good weekend.
