When I started this strip I thought 2 updates a week would be the perfect amount. Tuesdays and Thursdays sounded right (Tamarack Tuesday and Tamarack Thursday had a ring to it) but here I am 39 pages into it and I’m still struggling to hit my self-imposed deadline. I’m usually a day off (Tamarack Wednesdays and Tamarack Fridays don’t sound as snappy but whatever) and last week I missed a post altogether. So I’m getting discouraged. Looking through all 38 completed pages I can already see some improvements in the art work, but I don’t feel like I’m getting any faster. How do people do it? How do they post several times a week and with such consistency? I’m sure the majority of DIY comic creators have jobs, families or at least lives outside of comics, right? How can I get faster?

This week I will be posting on Wednesday and Friday again. But it will be twice. I’m not quitting. I’m not giving up.

If any comic creators out there read this and has any suggestions please drop me a note. How do you get your stuff out there in a timely manner?


*UPDATE*  Turns out it’s a Tamarack Thursday after all. One post this week. Let’s try this again next week…
