I’ve been accused, on more than one occasion,  of being mean to my main character. I don’t have it out for my hero, really. These things just happen… She’s my “that’s life” character. Perhaps by giving her grief, it’s a way to process my own. If life were all happy smiley faces, we wouldn’t have comics, or need them.

Anyhoo, for whatever reason, this (“mean to Randie”) storyline has been extremely easy to write… in fact, it practically wrote itself. I penned 20-ish or so strips in one sitting.
