Nuffink goes as planned

It's a case of "famous last words".
A couple of posts ago I said that I' d finished the strip for Insomnia's anthology and I'd found a new horror mag to submit some stuff.
I thought I'd be a bit clever(HA, fat chance) re-tweak an old strip that I'd done a while a go and submit it.
It's not gonna take too long I said; 2 weeks at most.
HA I say! HA and HA and Ha.
Wrong. it's been 4 weeks and it's not finished, nearly but not quite.

These 3 panels are from the 1st page (can't show too much, it'll give the plot away)
A story of how your indiscretions can come back to bite yous in the ass.
Anyway, me being a bit late has put other stuff on hold, and let me tell you there is loads of other stuff coming, it's just there aren't enough hours in the day what with this drawing lark and a full time job.
Hopefully I'll finish it this week.
After that, I've got another strip to start straight away (more on that later) and a 2 pager by a cracking new writer name of John Halfpenny.
I've read a couple of his little tales and I gotta say this man is gonna go far.
Plus something big that I can't mention just yet,
plus all of my other stuff that is already on hold.
Bugger! Oh well it's a good job that I love to draw isn't it!

Oh, Sir! You do me too much honour! (Especially as the one I've just finished for a Survival submission is an utter stinker. Back to the old db.)

Can't wait to see your take on Cracksman. I'm all interested in this strip now, what's the name of the horror mag? You can't just leave me hanging here like this without closure! AArgh!

I'm planning to email this publisher on Friday, see if'n my info is good, then I'll let you know.
What I don't want to do is name it, and it turns out to be a dud.
Nothing more disappointing than being let down in the eleventh hour, A thing that's happened to me too many times fer my liking
