vir Bonus 2nd year Anniversary
Submitted by Erik Melander on April 7, 2006 - 10:27
Well so much for writing regularly in the blog. I have three or four entries that are lying around unfinished, ideas not quite thought through yet.
This post in itself is almost a week late. The occasion, the second year anniversary of my webcomic, vir Bonus. It is a bitter sweet moment. While I am proud that I have kept at it for so long, I am also dissatisfied with the progress. Looking through the pages I've produced there are both that I am impressed by, and significantly more that are embarrassing. The story, which was intended as a rather short introductory story, has muted and twisted from the original idea and keep doing so. In many ways it is a better story than the original, but it is also longer and there are other stories I am aching to do. Both in the world of vir Bonus, but also others completely. I suppose that is the curse of an overactive imagination, to little time or perhaps in my case the unwillingness to devote more.
Still, the current vir Bonus story is about to reach the endgame and I am starting to contemplate what will follow it. The internet is a wonderful tool for syndication, but I am aching to try to create a more cohesive story by mapping it out in advance. That is tricky if the time creating it is going to be long, you invariably stumble upon solutions that are more appealing when you're working your way through the pages.
Still no point in getting ahead of oneself, there is after all a story that still needs to be finished. Here's to the two years that passed and the many that, hopefully, will follow.
