New Stuff, Same Old Nerditude

Yeah, as I said many years ago and still profess to this day, I’m writing a story! It’s as nerdy as you’d think (knowing me) and I’ve been having a blast at brainstorming. But at some point you have to stop brain storming and actually execute.

And I did! I wrote four chapters (all drafts) and felt “meh” about them. I started over and wrote one chapter over the course of three months. (ugh) After many rewrites, revisions, re-do’s, revamps, and a WHOLE HEEP of “re’s,” I decided to revert (another “re”) back to my original plan of making my story a graphic novel. Which means I’ll be writing a script instead of a book.

I was able to write the draft of the first chapter in a day. A DAY!!! It was fantastic and I felt like I accomplished something. There’s still a lot of work to do, but instead of having to worry about exposition I only have to write dialogue. The heavy work will come when I actually have to draw out the individual panels.

I still plan on finding a co-writer to physically take the script and rework it into something people would want to come back and read more than once, but so far I’m feeling great about everything!

Sorry it’s taken two weeks to post anything. This summer has been filled with a lot of projects and reading and it consumes most of my day. Thank you, faithful readers, for continuing to stick with me during my fickleness.

In other exciting news, I picked up the latest Neil Gaiman masterpiece! To be read after I finish “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.”

reading the truth is a cave in the mountains

More to come as it develops…
