Because, clearly, the reason these updates have been taking longer and longer is because I had too LITTLE to work with!

So... yeah... any hopes anyone might have had of me getting this Animazement update finished faster than the MAGFest ones... severely misplaced. I don't wanna go on another "HERE'S WHY EVERYTHING IS HAPPENING AND HOW I FEEL ABOUT IT" oversharing fit like I did over the whole Artist Alley thing, but I can say that this will probably the last Conventional Wisdom to exceed 20 pages for a while. I've gotten really bad about putting things on the Make Comics About list, not because I actually have a funny idea about it, but because it just seems like there's SUPPOSED to be a comic about that thing. Like, there's some Conventional Wisdom checklist somewhere that says each update should have X number of references to real people, cover Y number of panels, and so on. Knowing in advance what kind of stuff will make for good comics is great and all, but... well, the fact that it took so many weeks (and so many rewrites) to actually finish this thing suggest that I DON'T know that. At least, not enough to just write down a bunch of bullet points and assume I'll find something funny to say about it later.

So, long story short, expect the Otakon update to be significantly shorter than anything I've done over the past year or so. And for there to be a lot more of the types of gags I can actually come up with on the spot, that too.

...WHOA, WAIT A MINUTE! Did you think that meant we were DONE? That, even after all of these weeks, there weren't STILL MORE ANIMAZEMENT COMICS TO COME? But of course not! There's still one more batch of AZ 2017 comics to come on Patreon! If you donate ANYTHING, even just one dollar a month, you'll get to see 'em all as soon as I get 'em done! (which will HOPEFULLY be before Otakon) If you aren't donating already, feel free to check out the public Patreon Gallery to see the kind of stuff you've been missing out on!

...oh crap, I actually do have to start getting ready for Otakon now, don't I?

Dang, I'm getting slower. Eight hours after you posted... In my defense, Layton's Mystery Journey did come out today.

The solution is to get JUST ENOUGH ideas. Not so many that you're bogged down with them, and not so few that you have to make some up.

...unfortunately, that "midpoint" is probably where there's too few and you have to make some up while there's also so many that you're bogged down with ideas that you need to refine.

Well, Otakon's right around the corner, so I won't have to wait long before trying out new ways of doing things!
