Actions are louder than words, Willa.

When I was younger, I was terrible at ending stories.

I’d always set things up pretty well, I suppose, bop along with the story – then I’d just end it so abruptly.  Like, “A shot rang out and everyone died.  The End.”  Maybe it was boredom, wanting to move on to something else, or maybe that was me being an unskilled writer, who knows?  The point is, I’d like to think that I’ve gotten better at it.  I’ve been working on my pacing, making sure I don’t just end things all of the sudden – I’d like to think this started in college.  And working on this blog has certainly helped as well.

But dang.  This Halloween storyline.

Don’t get me wrong.  I like it.  I like how things have been going along with the witches and the monsters – but I don’t know.  I’m just having a hard time getting back into it and making sure it comes to a satisfying end.

I think a part of it is that it’s no longer Halloween season and we’re rapidly careening towards Thanksgiving.  Like, I want to draw some other Fall things before the season comes to a close and not be stuck in Halloween mode forever.

Also, I’m exhausted.  Like, I’m still trying to get used to this time change and it just has not been easy.  And those Halloween comics take a lot of work and effort and…blah.

But I can’t leave it hanging, obviously.  And I do want to finish it.  So, just bear with me, here.  The story will be finished at a point in time.  Expect to see them interspersed throughout the rest of the month.

It will be finished.  Trust me.

Walruses and Hauntings 4: Readying the Troops

Kind of on a time crunch here, Cleo – no time to make it look good.

Time to run.  Again.

Happy Halloween, everybody!  May it be as spooky or as sweet as you like it!

Also, once again, didn’t manage to finish the story line in time for the holiday.  But oh well!  It will be finished at some point…next month…
