I have discovered something rather interesting that I have located in the notes of Scott McCloud's Making Comics. If you don't already know about this it might be worth checking out.
It is a comics challenge complete with rules where comic creators make a fully completed 24 page comic in a single 24 hour period. "No Script. No preparation. Once the clock starts ticking, it doesn't stop until you're done." Scott McCloud calls it "Great shock therapy for the creatively blocked." Over a thousand comic creators have tried it since 1990 and the best work gets published.
I am highly considering trying this in the near future on my own accord and without publishing it. I believe it is a worthy point of discussion between our common interests. An exercise like this could potentially create an enourmous amount of self awareness and can break new grounds in our individual approaches.
I urge you to check the site out and consider trying it out.
