Hello All, I’ve decided to jump on the face-book bandwagon.
Anyone wanting to be-friend me, I’m listed as ‘C.d. Rudd’, since ‘CD Rudd’ isn’t acceptable for some reason.
Another year approaches, or has approached depending on when your reading this post.
I hope you get to spend the end of 2010 with family, friends and/or loved ones. And that 2011 brings all you expected,
and hoped for, except for one thing. That way you’ll have something to hope for into 2012.
This time of year many people set new years resolutions, my resolution is to at least get the WOLFPAC started. I’m sure Jean’s resolution is to get out of this mess she has gotten herself into, and for Niel… well, no idea what Neil’s resolution would be… probably not to be turned into a girl by Jean.
Since Xmas there has been a poll for whom you wanted to see in a new Years costume… and the winner, by 44%, Jeanie.” SO to the right (as I’m sure you’ve already noticed), is Jeanie drinking a little bit too much on New years eve… I’ll leave it up to you imaginations what brought on Jeanie’s drunken behavior, and more interestingly, is how she decided to dress up in that outfit for new years.
Lastly I’d like to thank all you readers who have kept reading “I Dream of a Jeanie Bottle”, either you just started or have starting reading for the beginning. It’s great to have loyal fans. I know I everyone would rather see me updating more frequently, and I’m happy that despite the lack of regular updates you keep reading.
I keep checking some of my favorite webcomics, and I see more and more slowly slipping into long-hiatuses or even non-existences. It’s a sad thing to see the passage of time slowly taking away the things we enjoy so much. While others start up and die quickly, many have stood the test and have proven themselves to the public, only to be stopped by the creator/author/writer/etc skipping an update, then two, or three, then a week, a month, a year goes by and no updates.
Every so often I chat with other webcomic artists, who tell me there reasons for not updating, “I have work”, “I can’t find the time.”, “I don’t have the energy.”, “I’m depressed.” All valid reasons to delay updates, after all, the comics are a hobby, not a job for many of us. And the whole time in the back of my head I’m thinking “Really??… If I can be in a WAR zone and keep updating 2 webcomics (even though the updates schedules may be delayed), you can’t update one once in a while? or at least buckle down and make a conclusions for the fans?
Though I get writers block and delayed at times for various reasons, I’m glad that you haven’t given up on me, because despite how busy I get, or where I am, I plead to keep both ‘I Dream of a Jeanie Bottle’ and SailorSun.org going as best as I can, till they are concluded and not before.
