As some of you might be aware of, I have some kind of storyline plotted in there. And, as all half-thought-of plotlines, there's holes. Some weeks, I sit there, writing and getting ready to draw and it dawns upon me: I just can't tell the bit of story I want to yet.

Before person X goes to place B, he needs to have a tangible reason to do so. The challenge with weekly strips that are desperately tryining to be at least one flavor of funny, is that reasons, plots and motivations are not always necessarily funny. And that trying to limit yourself to a four panel-a-week, self-contained gag doesn't leave too much place for development.

I said it's a challenge, not something impossible. So there's a few jokes that end up having to wait a month or so. I'm always trying to remain "buffered", as far as writing and drawing goes. So as not to have too much of a deadline pressure. Ever comic you see usually spends about a week sitting on my desktop while I try to work out drawing, writing and pacing flaws.

What happens now is that my buffer almost all for the future and I'm working close to deadlines.

I think it still remains kinda funny. It just surprises me more, when jokes pop out of nowhere without me having thought about it for a few days. Its less polished and more spontaneous (like this week), and I like it too.

Now if I could just find some pocket of virtual time where I could actually promote the comic :P
