When I sit down to write a page, I know basically what I want to happen on it, and have a general idea of what the dialog will be. It takes some time to actually compose it and sort it into comic panel friendly chunks, but for this page – I knew what was going to happen on it, but had no idea what I was going to do for the dialog.

Sitting down to write it though, I wasn’t really worried. One of the secret powers of ADHD (for me anyway) is kind of never having to worry about writer’s block. It pours out like goo from a massive lanced boil. Doesn’t mean it’s going to be any good, or that I won’t just sit in my chair spinning and daydreaming twenty different scenarios instead of actually typing something out. The point is, quantity is not the issue. I stared at the screen for about 15 seconds and was like, “Hmm, what is Sydney going to verbal diarrhea about… ah! Jabberwokky’s kiss cure.”

Actually I had that story banked for another page or three, but I think it’s at least as amusing in this form.

Fun fact, Jabberwokky was supposed to be obnoxiously chatty, which is where she got her nickname. But I forgot to do that every time she showed up. Maybe she switched her meds right before her first appearance.

By the way, for those of you wondering, Clip Studio Paint does not handle large blocks of anti-aliased text well. The program is embarrassingly single-threaded. It’s actually amazing it’s as fast as it is, but I would really like to see some GPU support.

Check the vote incentive to see Sydney not naked. Check Patreon to see her… well, you can guess.
