2014 – November 5

Nanotoons_2014_11_05Errol: Hi! Wow, you guys are awesome. Thanks so much for sharing how you learned about NaNoToons! It’s interesting, you know, doing things and I never really know how many people read my comics. Sure I have stats, and whatnot, but I don’t check things that much. I heard about NaNoToons because of Debbie Ohi, the original artist. She asked me to help her and I jumped on the chance to collaborate with her. I really enjoy NaNoToons and this little crew that we have here.

I’m going to talk a little bit about last night because a long time ago, I used to be involved in Brickfilming, where you do stop motion animation with LEGO. There was a small community there and just like any internet community, one got involved and got to know a lot of people. They kickstarted a documentary and they asked me for an interview. I was shocked, and honoured, because I haven’t been in the community for a number of years now. However, it reminded me how much I’ve enjoyed the little online forums and bonds I have made on the internet for the last decade or so.

And the same with the NaNoWriMo community. Even though this is my 9th year, I really do NaNoWriMo more for the community than I do for the book writing. ^_^

Ahem, sorry, I get sentimental when I think about the past. Let’s get back to writing!

  1. That is so cool! I’m glad you got the chance to be interviewed and kind of got a blast from the past. Online communities are the best!

    • It was a wonderful blast from the past. The guy that interviewed me was around 12 at the time when I first ‘met’ him on the forums. He’s now in his mid twenties. ^_^

  2. I can’t fully relate to this–partly because I don’t drink very much caffeine usually, so I can fall asleep when I need to, but partly because caffeine doesn’t do this to me. I still get tired, but just can’t sleep. It’s the opposite of helpful. I have been just generally hyper since NaNo started, though, so it’s sort of like this. Oh, and when I do word wars, which I’ve done this year for the first time, I type like that, just because of adrenaline.

  4. This is my favorite comic thus far! I totally relate to the excessive caffeine drinking haha. 😛 Keep up the good work! I love checking back every day. 🙂

  5. Congratulations on your interview! If only I could be that pumped right now about doing homework… I hate calculus 😛
