Novel progress

The novel I’m working on is now up to 15,000 words. Not bad but I’m mostly through the outline and running out of things to write about. This could end up being a short book.

The Novel is a quick read anyway.

No artwork inside this novel just on the cover.

She shot the bad guy but doesn’t yet know how bad he is.

Listening to Ghost Riders in the Sky. Next up is Flight of the Valkyries. Fast music equals fast typing.

New Artist

I’ve been busy so I haven’t posted in weeks.

I hired a new artist and will have new art work posted soon. Of course a hurricane got in the way of getting the artwork I was going to post today.

A writer is a communicator. If you want to test your ability to communicate then hire an artist. It all goes back to the newspapers and the challenge to describe a spiral staircase without using your hands (now that’s communication). An artist sees your words but visualizes them as a completely different picture from what you had in mind. I need that visualization but not quite that way.

Employee origination is a lot harder to do as a hirer than you think.

Stay tuned great things are coming Klystronia, the land of mad science, monsters, and mayhem.

Likeable Monsters

Professor Hyram “Hy” Voltage here.

This comic is based on a movie script I wrote. Of all the scripts I’ve written I like this story the best.

The one comment I kept getting back from the writing group, rewrite after rewrite, was “Where do the monster come from?”.

Where the monsters come from doesn’t have anything to do with the story. The monsters were created years before the story starts and I’m not big fan of flash backs.

After a long pain racked analysis period I came to realize that what everyone was saying is that my monsters were more interesting than my villains, protagonist, and anyone else in the script. My monsters were the good guys/gals (yes, this is an equal employment comic).

So I wrote, an origin for the monsters. Then rewrote, rewrote, rewrote, rinse and repeat. The result is a adventure/rom-com with a very bloody opening. You can’t make a good monster without spilling a little blood.

But it gave me a chance to show the personalities of the monsters before they were monsters. And showing is the best way to do it.

Mad scientists, Monsters, and Mayhem.  This comic got it all.
