Some Random Fun
Working full steam on the project I mentioned in my post for January 23rd (More, Soon!). I still can’t say anything about it aside from: it’s with Stephen R. Bissette, a number of CCS students have contributed and it’ll premiere at MoCCA this April. Very exciting. I hope to see you there!
Next week, I’ll breakdown the plot of Stitches by David Small but until then here are some writing-themed sites I enjoyed recently. If you have your own you’d like to share, let me know!
How to Survive Writing a Graphic Novel by Grady Klein — Full of very sound advice. I’ve taken every step to heart.
Rules for Writers — a growing collection of authors have contributed their top 10 “rules” (some funny, some practical, some poignant) for working as a writer. I especially liked Michael Moorcock’s #2 rule.
Elizabeth Gilbert: A new way to think about creativity — I saw this TED lecture (online) over a year ago but I recently rediscovered it and it still resonates with encouragement, regardless of what art you practice.
I hope you enjoy these, too!
P.S. The New Dead: A Zombie Anthology! I had the pleasure of reading and giving feedback on Stephen R. Bissette’s manuscript for the short story Copper a few months ago. He appreciated my notes so much he named a zombie after me! I’m very honored. Thank you, Steve. Copper is a great story about a retired military officer and the vagabond zombies of the town in need a leader to guide them (a love story…in which they eat people!). I highly recommend it.
