Comic Dictionary - Easy Writing

Today's term is "Easy Writing," (for the pun value, I wanted to go with Easy Writer, but it just didn't make as much sense as Easy Writing) which is defined as "When a writer has certain events occur in a comic, not because they make sense, but because the writer needs certain things to happen a certain way, and it is just easier to have characters act out of character/illogically than to put in the time to make the scene work logically.

Very often, this occurs during outside writing, but it does not always have to be outside writing. It can sometimes just be when a writer personally wants a story to go a certain way, but usually, it happens in outside writing, when an editor tells a writer that "X" HAS to occur, so the writer will just have X happen, and not spend the time to see if it makes sense or not.
