Surviving Monday

I don’t know if I’m coming down with a bit of a cold or if the Monday DST issue just caught up with me but I have been *dragging* all day. Wow.

However, that doesn’t mean I didn’t keep plugging along.

a) Sent the first set of revisions for Skin The Cat back to my editor. That actually took most of the evening, but I think it was time well spent. Hopefully, my editor will think so too.

b) Submitted the official proposal for the short story series to a different publisher. More on that to follow.

c) Started sketching out the second issue of Troubleshooters Incorporated Vol. 2 and laying out the overall arc and the sub-arcs for the comic series. Also spent a chunk of time reviewing Native American mythology to include in the story.

I admit, it takes a bit to make that mental shift from writing prose to writing a comic script. You can let the artist tell so much of the story if you lay it out right. Comics are such a collaborative medium,(unless you’re an artist/writer—so I guess you get to collaborate with yourself). It always amazes me when I describe a scene on a piece of paper and then I get the art back and see those few lines brought to life by the artist. And the longer I work with the artist, the easier it is to write to their strengths, which only makes their life easier too.

So, again, not a lot of words written, but definitely progress made. Not too bad for a Monday, I guess.
