If you've known me for a while, and we've talked about anything even remotely personal, you probably knew that what I wanted to do was write movies. That was the goal. That had been the goal since 2008? 2007? Somewhere around there. It's been on my mind for quite some time. I've written a lot of them. I get lost sometimes in the depth of my writing folder because I've put a lot of documents and subfolders into it with stuff.
Most of it bad, mind you, but that doesn't change the fact that it's been a lot of work.
Do you know what I have to show for it?
A lot of documents in a lot of subfolders.
Movies take a lot of time and effort and people to get made. Especially ones more than just a few minutes long.
And that's not counting if you want to actually make them good.
So in the middle of all this stuff, I find comics. I pick them up and get hooked on them. I told you that story already. I decide to challenge myself to write a comic because hey, why not? It's a writing challenge. It could help my screenwriting, I thought.
Turns out it's a whole different muscle.
Maybe it's just because it's new, but it's one I really like exercising.
And sometime in the near future, I think I'm going to have something I can show for it.
Was that too subtle of a tease? Oh well. Guess you'll just have to wait and see what's coming, won't you?
Just know that I'm excited. And, like I said before, I'll take any momentum I can get.
