The layout is the hardest part.

Try writing it out in a text format first.

That's what helped me.

It is always writing a larger story which is hard for me x3; Anything more than like 20 pages I feel like I get a little lost.
I'm pretty alright at writing things 20 pages and under, I just need to accept that I will never be writing longer comics xD

Twenty pages is too much for a small comic. lol

Because comics are more about the art than the dialog. You have to learn that those lines are not boundaries, and they can be broken. Characters and items can "pop" out from them to make the comic seem more realistic.

Check out my Humans in Equestria comic for some examples. Or read a Christopher Hart book.... XD

Well one chapter of a comic is anywhere between 14-20 pages. So 20 pages would be on the longer side of one chapter.
Generally I'm okay with writing one chapter.
 
:) I know how to push boundaries, as I took two "How to write graphic novels" in college and my professors always said I picked the strangest out their projects. One of my comics DID actually come off the page. I've never had any issues with being creative and thinking outside the box when it comes to comics.
I think depending on what type of comic you want to write the dialog and art might have different roles. XKCY and Dinosaur Comics are two examples of comics where I think the dialog really carries the story more than the art does. I also felt in my last 12 page comic I wrote that the dailog and the choice of art coming together really made the difference.

I simply am only good at writing one chapter of a comic/short comics.
And that's something I don't think you can really teach someone, since it has more to do with coming up with a story rather than knowing how to write a comic. I simply am better at telling self-contained stories, than following one character for many epics.
I guess you can compare it to TV programs.
Some TV programs you get self-contained stories and what they do in each episode has little/no effect on the next episode. Versus  a TV program where you follow one character from episode to episode.

This comic was simply a joke about how much I've always seen the grass is greener on the other side, but it might not be. I've always wanted to be someone to write a very long webcomic, with lots of characters and a long story, but it just isn't something I excel at. My talents are just in shorter comics, and self-contained stories, and now I've come to accept that.
I've mostly come to accept that and that's why I took on this 4koma project. I have more idea for this 4koma project, than I do my longer comic I've been working on for years.

I know what it's like to feel stuck. lol

I'm sorry. I didn't mean to sound condescending.

Your comics are cuter than mine, anyways. T____T

Nothing wrong with four panels.  I've seen some comics that get a lot done in four panels :)
