#2: IMMEDIATE CONFLICT
In any creative relationship, the conflict pretty much walks through the door right away. Everyone has their own idea, their own picture in their head of the way they see a particular creative endeavor. You get two people together with different ideas then there will be conflict. The key is to work through the conflict and compromise.
That's what Harold and I do.
We went round and round about the name 'Variety Smack' when we first started this web comic venture. On Monday Harold would like the name and I'd hate it. On Tuesday I'd like the name and Harold would hate it. On Wednesday we would both hate it and then we'd decide to just pack it all in. On Thursday we would both confess that we really like the name and are ready to move forward only to find that one of us changed our mind on Friday.
Yet, despite all of that, here we are.
Don't forget about our contest. 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 email@example.com (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.
See you all on Thursday.
