Having trouble writing complete stories, after reading Chris Ware comics you want to write mini novels but it's not mega easy. I was trying to work on a pretty (perhaps overly) complicated picture story with parallel narratives in paste present and future, and it's quite hard to finish. Also the only plot device that keeps popping up is murder, which makes it a bit of a grim read...
Talking to max he saw my work as being more about a sequence of images than an overarching narrative which i think is true.

I know I want to consolidate the narrative stuff I've been making for a while now, and create a product that I can sell online or distribute myself. If I make a book, I think it'll be a compendium of strips as i don't want to commit to making a long piece as getting bogged down in writing and rewriting could take ages and i could end up with a final piece i wasn't really happy with. Better I think to spread my bets, as well as getting really good at initiating projects
