I’ve completed the post work on pages 4 and 5. However, I didn’t work on the comic at all last night. Considering I’m already behind, this brings up an interest point for me: Guilt!
Contrary to what my wife thinks, people do indeed check my site for updates and actually seem to show an interest in the story. This is why I take seriously trying to get each new chapter done in a timely manner. This is also why I sometimes feel pressure to work on the comic even when I don’t particularly “feel” like it. And when I don’t work on it, I feel a twinge of guilt for those who are waiting on me. From the stats on the website, I can see when people (although I don’t know who exactly) check the final page of the previous chapter or the preview pages, apparently to see if a new chapter has been added. Every time I see that I think “D’oh – it’s coming, it’s coming!” This is not a bad thing, mind you, and in fact it motivates me a lot. Still, I try not to stress myself out about it either, even though I do anyway. ;-)
