I was thinking this morning, not for the first time, that I should stop building Rumors of War as a webcomic. As a sprite comic, anyway. I certainly don’t want to stop writing the characters or the story, but the restrictions of the medium I chose are depressing me. It’s been an interesting ride, and I’ve been forced to compromise in some interesting ways, but … I just don’t know. I don’t know that I want to continue the comic by myself.

What I’d like to do, really, is find a decent illustrator to team up with and just write the thing. Trying to do the scripting and the building as a webcomic … I mean, I chose the sprite comic as a medium because it was the sort of thing I had confidence that I could sustain on a daily basis, and, I mean, I’ve done exactly that. Sustained it. Barely, in some places. But still, I’ve done it. I accomplished my primary goal.

I’ve kept Rumors of War going, daily, for an entire year. (Or will, as of the end of this month. And I will finish out the year, or there will be hell to pay.) I just … I want to do the characters more justice than I can manage with the format I chose. I want to do justice to the setting, and all the things that are going on. I’ve been playing around with different writing styles these last few years, I want to go back to my writing style.
