Behold, the duck is done with draft 3 of my June comic. It took one month. The script originally started as separate issues in draft 1, then, somehow turned into this horrible mutated mess where I couldn’t tell one issue from another in draft 2. And it was no longer chronological! So for draft 3, I first got lots of little pieces of paper and put a scene title on each one. Then, I moved them around until they were in the order I wanted. Kind of weird, but I think it’s helpful to do it that way. Then, I broke it back up into 9 issues and started rewriting it all and adding in scenes that really needed to be there. I had the most trouble with issues 4 and 6-9, but I worked extra hard on them and made them much better. Now the whole story is pretty much there.
Now my script is nearly done. Some issues are pretty much done and some need extra help, but overall, I’m close. Issue 4 is kind of weird, though. I could almost cut it out, but there’s just enough good stuff that I need to keep it. And issue 8 is a bit of a mess, and issue 9 is too short. Hmm. Maybe I can squish it into 8 issues. But, I’ll save that for draft 4. I’m tired of this comic right now. I hope to be done by the end of draft 4 or 5.
