Psst, Danni, you're supposed to be helping Kleya, not making it worse.
Happy 2015 everyone!!! Thanks to all who read my webcomic!
It's been five years since I made the New Year Resolution to buckle down and launch NAV. It's kind of surreal to see how far I've come since then. Here's what I had hoped for back in 2010:
- Launch NAV (check!)
- Find readers who would like my webcomic (check! And I've even met them at cons! You guys really exist. So cool!!)
- Improve art skills to awesomeness!! (hmm...debatable I guess; how do you quantify awesomeness?! (note to self: make easier to achieve goals. lol) but they're definitely better than when I started, so almost check!)
- Make a living off of it by year 3 (yeah... I was reaching for the stars on that one but hey, dreaming big is fun! And technically I reached it if living meant "surviving" which is super cool that I actually have readers willing to buy my story and support me. Thank you thank you!)
It's pretty cool to see how far I've come and I can't wait to see where I'll end up by the end of this year. I've got big plans, too, like getting a 3 month buffer (I'm at 2.5 months right now; Li.F.e. pages are sooooo much easier to do now), a Kickstarter in March/April for Volume 3, finishing my Chaos Gods series (it got sidelined during the overwhelming Reality section but I'm back on it!) and producing an illustrated hardcover version, and getting more novels drafted (I have way too many stories in my head; they need to get out!). I also would love to start drafting a possible Visual Novel featuring Annie and exploring L.i.F.e. but I may already have too much on my plate and not enough time for that. Sigh...
Still, I'm super happy I gathered the courage to start this webcomic. Thanks again to everyone who reads my comic, who views the ads, who shares NAV with others, who leaves comments, and who supports me via my AneekaChannel or by Patreon (just launched). Thanks so much for liking my story and coming back to read more. I'm so grateful to be able to share this story with people who love it!
Thank you so much again! And I hope you all have an amazing 2015!!
Oh, and I updated the vote incentive, inspired by panel 3 😀
