Has it really been a month already? I feel like I just got here! And it is apparently 32 days, since January 1-31 would be 31 days, so from Jan 24-Feb 24 is 32 days. I think...
*stretches out legs* That's better; there's plenty of space here. Writing too many 4Komas can start to get claustrophobic. Don't get me wrong; I do like making them, but I eventually want to make some longer works as well. I'll be doing a journal entry about that one a bit later.
When I first came here, I had literally never made a Walfas comic before. I had played around in create.swf for a while, but never actually finished anything. Part of me never expected to get this far. I mean, to get here at all, let alone to continue regularly producing content after a month,
though if I had a life outside of my laptop, I might not post as much. I haven't really posted any creative works anywhere before this, so making stuff that people actually read is still kind of new to me. I hope to continue improving and refining my work as much as I reasonably can. I'm not sure how many things I'm actually any good at, but Walfas is one thing that I seem to have a solid foundation in, which I can hopefully grow.
So if I've been here a month, what exactly have I done in that time? Let's see...
I've posted 21 deviations, with 19 of them being Walfas. Of those Walfas, 11 were 4Komas, and an additional 3 of them were under 9 panels. All of my comics over 9 panels were related to some ongoing theme, such, Intro Comic, Touhou Life Meme, Valentines Day, and WSW contest #18. So... not a whole lot of continuity there. But that's something to talk about in the next entry.
What I haven't done is get very involved in the community at large. Or at least I don't think I have. I have left comments on several things, and entered the stock prop contest, but I still feel like I'm missing something. In the comment section of my intro comic, I was advised to join the chat. I eventually did so, but I couldn't really get myself to stick anywhere. With 80+ people frequently online, the WSW Discord is a big place, and I am quite terrible at mingling in large crowds. Yes, there are several subrooms, so maybe you get six or seven people in a room at one time. Sometimes I can get into a conversation, and it works out well at the time, but coming out of it I still don't feel like I've actually made any lasting connections . If anyone has any advice for making friends (if not on Discord, then in some other place), feel free to share.
On that note, since I would prefer to be an actual person, rather than a robot who churns out Walfas funnies every once in a while, I will be doing a Q & A comic
and hopefully not regret it. I wasn't really sure what information to share here, so I'll let you all decide. Leave whatever questions you want to ask in the comments below, and I'll pick several to answer. I can't guarantee that I'll answer all of them, especially if there are a lot. I don't want the comic to be so long that I have to split it into multiple parts, so maybe ~30 panels max? There's no strict timeline on when this will be finished; I'll just do it once I have enough questions, however long that takes.
Do I need a concluding paragraph here? Because I have nothing. See ya later.
