Funny thing is, that really does happen. A lot. :P I set out to do one thing, do something else. Say I'll do one thing, when I really intend to do another. ;)
And, yeah. The excuse does work, just not for Gag-A-Day. I mean, if it were, say, The Descended, then it'd work, 'cause that has a huge plot to it. Heck, even Slice-of-life comics are good writing practice, for making realistic and deep characters. Gag-a-Day is, like, the only type which DOESN'T improve your writing skills. :P

Why are you actually writing?
30th Jan 2011, 11:25 PM
'Cause I enjoy writing. More so than art, actually. Webcomics tend to be my happy medium between the two, with gag-a-days being the obvious exceptions. Still, just 'cause gag-a-day doesn't improve my writing doesn't mean it doesn't improve my skills. By updating daily, I can show devotion to a project, and if I can devote to gag-a-day, then I can devote myself to anything. ;)

Gag-a-day does require improvement in writing if you want to do it well... There is an art to it... You have to build up to the joke, then release it in a pithy punchline... Minimal wording to get in the way or make the build up / release take longer...

Yeah, doing it well will improve your writing ;)

Eh, I suppose so, but I don't think I can write gag-a-day well enough that it, well, improves my writing. :P
As mentioned, the main reason I'm writing gag-a-day is 'cause it helps improve my scheduling.
