Seeking feedback: How can we attract writers?
I had thought “meaningfully contribute to a comic you like without opening your wallet” would have been a great incentive to encourage people to participate in the writing collaboration, but it hasn’t worked out that way. Please send in suggestions for ways that we can provide an incentive for folks to participate in the writing collaboration, bearing in mind that it’s an open forum so we don’t have any filters on who can participate.
More than two years ago, I wrote script #14 and thought I was 14% through writing the scripts for Ask Pun. Our original plan was 100 single-panel sketch-quality comics, once a week for two years. Then when we got to script #144, I figured it was part of having lots of choices for the artists and it didn’t matter if not every script got produced. Today I put script #1,444 in the scripts database and think having less than 300 available scripts is unacceptable.
Celestia help me if we get to #14,444
Small news: 1000 posts
Today marks our 1,000th post on Ask Pun. What impresses me about this number is that it just happened as part of the process rather than something we were “building up to.” It indicates that the project processes have become highly streamlined.
