TPG Week 281: The End Of An Era


Welcome back, one and all, to the last installment of The Proving Grounds.

Yes, the last. I've been saying it for a few weeks now, and the day has finally arrived. This is the last one.

All things must come to an end, and this column's time has come around...again.

The bulk of you don't know that this is the second time I've done this column. It used to be over at Project Fanboy (which turned into the now-defunct Fanboy Buzz), and ran for about a year. I stepped away from it because I picked up a client who was supposed to have a massive job for me, but that fizzled.

Then Tyler James and I started ComixTribe, and the goal was to give creators something they couldn't get anywhere else: good, free information and help situated under one roof. I've written various columns over the years, but the two that creators have found most helpful have been Bolts & Nuts and The Proving Grounds.

Six years. Hell, I'll call it six and a half. I've had to do some recruiting for scripts every so often, but six and a half years of doing this weekly takes its toll. To be honest, I'm shocked it lasted this long. I'm not easy, and yes, some of it is showmanship, but some of it is also an outlet for the truly crappy scripts that have come through.

Yes, a lot of it is usery. Most of the writers who come through here wanted to take advantage of the free editing. The overwhelming bulk of writers, actually. I don't mind overmuch. I've been able to help those who wanted to be helped, and that's what this entire adventure was all about.
