A little while ago I reported that I tried drawing one of the three I'm going to draw for the new novel. I had not been happy with the result. It didn't look like him in my mind's eye and he also 'told' me that I'd gotten it all wrong. So, I had another go. This time his personality is all there... and I'm convinced that I managed to capture him in lines. There's been no objection from him either.
I've had some other bits of the tale come to me... looks like I will be writing this story after all. I just hope that this guy shows up in words as well as he did in virtual ink.
The truth is I have three lines of the book... the opening three, which are dialogue. But I know I'll not feel right about continuing if I don't get a picture of the third main character. I've known about him the longest, actually, which doesn't explain why I didn't put him to paper first. It could be because he's a little more mysterious and whenever I think of him, I bring to mind an image of a character from another book of mine. But the two of them share very little in common so I'm a little confused as to why I think of the other character. Well, I'll just have to try my hand at creating him in pictorial form as I do have a handle on him in the story. I just need him to tell me his reason for acting the way he does... perhaps that's the bit I need to "see" him.
I probably sound crazy, but then, doesn't one have to be a little nuts to weave fiction?
Yes, yes - but you would have to be half-mad to dream me up.
I am a fiction writer. Mostly I compose in the Urban Fantasy genre. When asked, I usually liken it to "The Twilight Zone" - extraordinary events emerging in everyday life. I graduated with Honors in Creative Writing from Knox College in 1993. Obviously I also scribble cartoonish drawings.
Here you will find my nonfiction - the place for me to share my thoughts with you, keep you posted on upcoming events and allow me to interact.
If you wish to leave a note, use my cartoon quill and ink.
