This brings up a question of: how often do people post (when they have
stuff to post)?
I am currently on every fortnight, but I may slow down as once a month is
good enough for most comics! I have written far ahead ('cos I'm trying to
get back into writing), but think spacing it out is a good way to go. No
need to overload readers.

There is also a related question, which Martin brought up last time: how
do people know when they've written enough for an issue?
Martin said he writes until about 10K. I used to be going for 500 lines,
but now am happy to stop when the story does. And Saxon tends to hit his
max fairly easily. :)

But how about others?

Not to discount Saxon's influence, but just a few days before I posted
that issue, I picked up the latest Previews to see, on the cover, a splash
of the tribute to Normalman inside! (How's that for unintended timing!)
