Getting Focused on 2011

Even though the holidays are a completely crazy and busy time, I have been thinking a lot about what I will be doing in 2011. While I have a ton of ideas and half-started projects, I will be simplifying things in 2011 and focusing on a few. They are:

Mo Stache (www.mostachecomic.com): If you haven’t been following along so far, my good friend John Cordis and I just posted the twenty-first page of our webcomic. The story of Dave Reynolds and his alien mustache has been going great so far, and our goal is to tell our story in around 100 pages, which should bring us into the beginning of 2012. The focus this year will be on continuing to put out a quality page of the story each week, as well as getting together the first of two print volumes that we will make available for sale. We are also considering getting a booth or table at some comic shows in 2011, but that all depends on how we are doing with getting the comic out on time each week.

lbobi.com: I’ve been working with my good buddy Jeff Rodgers over on his “Little Blog of Big Ideas” for the past several months. We’ve got ten episodes of our lbobi Radio podcast out for public consumption, and we have some big ideas for projects in 2011. I’ll be talking more about that stuff soon, but one of the projects will involve me writing a series of articles over on lbobi.com.

Secret Identity: As always, Matt Herring and I will continue to put out two podcasts a week, covering everything from comics to movies to games, to whatever. We update www.secretidentitypodcast.com daily, and our goal is to have more reviews, creator interviews and other features in 2011. As in 2010, much of what I write will be featured over on Secret Identity.

Those are the big three for 2011, but that’s not all. I anticipate my short story “Tony the Bear” will be published in “Strange Aeons” magazine in early 2011. I have an 8-page comic story in the premiere issue of “Monarch Comics Chronicles” that should be getting published in the first quarter of 2011 as well. A few other projects are in the offing as well, and some may get fast-tracked, but my goal will be to focus on the projects that are real in 2011, and see them through to completion.

Last but not least, I will be updating “See Brian Write” every week, keeping everyone posted on all of my projects and where people can find them.
