Let me sail, let me sail, let the Orinoco flow.
Let me reach, let me beach on the shores of Tripoli.
Let me sail, let me sail, let me crash upon your shore.
Let me reach, let me beach far beyond the Yellow Sea.
De de de de de...

Happy Halloween everyone! You can see this year's Halloween page under the holiday tab or just click this link. Halloween 2018

And thus we enter the second week of updating on two different days. So please leave a comment and if you need a writers promp here are three questions from last week.

1. One page updates on multiple days through out the week.

2. How the new home page functions. (where you able to find the new comic update)

3. Any other thoughts you may have.

I got to sleep every night listening to Enya.

I got it remixed with Prodigy (much nicer than it sounds).

My sister is a massage therapist, so when ever she hears Enya she has a pavlov response to start working on someone. It's a lot of fun to trigger at random times.

I can't repeat a selection, so no Styx. I decided to go in a different direction fitting the mood depicted:

"I have my ship, and all her flags are a flying'.
"She is all that I have left, and MUSIC is her naaaaame...."

I don't understand the weekends, can someone explain to me? It's predictable: good voting through the week, Saturday & Sunday, flatline. This was last week: 11, 11, 6, 14, 8, 1, 2.... Today 11 votes again. *shrug*

Next month Imma gonna have to start tracking the competition on a regular basis. Just from a cursory glance, I don't understand how some of the comics in the top 200 end up there. Yes, there are the outstanding ones like Freefall, and Housepets; but, there are a number of "Who?" "this isn't even good art".... And of course, a number of them are porn, including some of the highest rated. The Internet is good at something.

We're still looking at record month: today we're #335, and for the comic a breath-taking 170 votes. Unless something drastic happens I'm predicting we'll end up mid to lower 300's. This is really such a huge jump it's wonderful to see. I just wish it weren't dropping off over the weekend so much; it would probably be even higher if the voting was constant.

So, bottom line, multiple one-page updates are not hurting, and may very well be helping. Still want to see this next 2 weeks to be sure.

I do wonder how about the reader to voter ratio with the higher performing comics. It is quite possible that Gratz just doesn't have as large of a reader base and that is causing a lagging in votes.

I don't believe the vote is lagging, truthfully. I think that through the week it's probably proportional. And I wouldn't be as concerned if it were completely consistent. I would feel happier if we were seeing that 10-11 votes every day, but we don't. Instead it's good Monday - Friday, then it's like everyone disappears until Monday again. I've thought about it, and it's become so consistent I don't know whether a Friday update would do anything to change it.

Halloween Arua is lovely as always. that skirt...*cough*. But my anime sense is failing me. Those crossbow vials look familiar, and all the silverish crosses are trying to suggest a character, but I can't pull it out of my brain. It's a wonderful picture though.

I ripped the crossbow off of Van Helsing, and it's really not from anything just some kind of witch/vampire hunter thing. Figure if your going after evil one better have silver crosses on hand.
