The author writes:

So you have this webcomic that you run without a buffer. It works for a while, but then something happens, updates become erratic, and your readers get antsy.

Then your time becomes free again. What do you do?

A) Build up a buffer for next time something happens?

B) Go on an update spree that you will never be able to maintain for more than a few weeks?

Almost everyone seems to pick B, even though I can see no good reason for it. And it's in particular annoying, as a reader, to experience the authorship binge phase. Your stomach clenches up, wondering how long before the author burns out. Wondering what element of their life will give first. Wondering if, after this binge, they give up altogether, like so many before them.
