His Own Comic

Was in Kansas City a couple weeks back and, y'know, I hit all the local bargain bins. Along with the usual First, Continuity, Eclipse, etc. masterpieces I also got some old Comics Journals. I already had this issue (#154, 1993, the legendary Woodring interview!) but I picked it up again because it was cheap and who knows, maybe this particular copy has the answers. I remember reading this issue, sitting in my high school library. O days gone by! 

A belated congratulations, Chris!

Here's a page from the Woodring interview, of a rough layout:

This is a doodle/diagram of the Getting Things Done system. It was very helpful to me to work through, because with no day job and few real deadlines, I can get pretty bogged down, anxious and scatterbrained. The basic form of the system is really just standardized common sense: you gather everything together, then sort through it, organize it, and then focus on specifics. It's very useful to analyze and break down a complicated project into discrete steps, and then be aware of what step you're on, and keep your focus there and not get freaked out by what's down the road. I suppose some people are able to do this easily, but I struggle with it.
