007 - Priorities: Page Seven
It's okay to cry.
This is actually the very first page that Harold and I did. See, we knew how we wanted the story to end, so Harold roughed out the ending to determine how many pages the ending would take. We only had eight pages to work with and based on Harold's roughs, the ending took two pages, so then I had to figure out how to fill in the previous six.
So there you go, a little behind the scenes for you. Pulling back the curtain and stuff.
I'll use this space to post a few reminders.
Reminder #1: We have a contest going on at the moment. The winner will get to appear in a strip this July. This is how you can enter. Just share this post. That's it. Soon we will post about the page on Facebook, so you can find that via our Facebook page and share that post. Or, do the same at Google+, or do the same at Twitter ... or do all three and get your name in the hat three times! (Links to the Facebook page, Google+ page, and Twitter page will be below)
But you don't have to find those posts on our various social networking sites just to enter this contest. You can choose to go and post about it yourself on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, or even post about it on the forum of your choice. However you choose to do it, just email a link to your post to firstname.lastname@example.org (with "OAC Contest" in the subject line) so that we can put your name in the hat.
We will draw one name in May, and the winner will be featured in a strip to be posted in July.
Reminder #2: Go Like our Facebook Page - LINK
Reminder #3: Go follow our Google+ Page - LINK
Reminder #4: Go follow our Twitter page - LINK
Reminder #5: There is no 5th reminder!
Reminder #6: The web strip will launch the Tuesday after the last page of Priorities goes up. So the last page of Priorities will go up on Wednesday, January the 16th, so that means that the first strip (which we are currently going to go ahead and call Variety Smack) will go up on Tuesday, January the 22nd. So be there for that, because you are in for something special. We have (as I type this) 27 strips completed and in the can, so worry not that we won't have content for you for the weeks to come.
I think that's all I have to say this week.
