Top Ten Articles – October 2018

First of all, Happy Halloween everyone 🙂 Anyway, since it’s the end of the month, it’s time for my usual list of links to what I consider to be the ten best articles about making art, making webcomics, writing fiction etc… that I’ve posted here over the past month. As usual, I’ll also include a few honourable mentions too.

All in all, this month probably wasn’t the best one in terms of articles. Partly, this was due to being busy with a couple of other projects at the time of preparing this month’s articles in addition to problems caused by tiredness and/or writer’s block. Still, there were some good articles posted here this month.

So, without any further ado, here are the lists. Enjoy 🙂

Top Ten Articles – October 2015

2015 Artwork Top Ten Articles October

First of all, happy Halloween everyone 🙂 Anyway, since it’s the end of the month, I thought that I’d make the usual list of links to what I think are the ten best articles about writing, art and comics that I’ve posted here this month (I’ll also probably include a couple of honourable mentions too).

Unfortunately, many of this month’s articles were horrifyingly terrible. I don’t know, I guess that this was just one of those uninspired months that I sometimes have.

The fact that I wrote many of this month’s articles back during the summer probably didn’t help either (I don’t know, hot weather has a habit of making me feel uninspired). Nonetheless, there were at least a few vaguely good articles this month. So, without any further ado, here’s the list:

– “Three Tips For Writing Sci-Fi Political Drama
