So, I feel like I've been derelict in my quest to become a better writer and to get more visibility of my projects. At the beginning of the year, I promised myself I'd be writing more and try to become a stronger writer. I'm actively working on doing both.

With regard to becoming a better writer. I'm reading about character arcs and how they pertain to plot and create a more rounded story. The book is Creating Character Arcs: The Masterful Author's Guide to Uniting Story Structure, Plot, and Character Development by K.M. Weiland. There are several points and a list of questions at the end of each chapter that help focus on the character's goals. She, the author, ties these points to examples from movies and other books. The nice thing about these examples is that they are consistent throughout. For example, when she uses Thor to make a point, Thor will show up in every chapter to show how each step discussed applies. The lesson along with an application is what's making it work well for me. Some of it may be difficult to apply to comics because of their particular structure but it's got me thinking and that's always a good thing.

On to projects! There is a superhero comic that's underway. It's currently in the developmental stage so I don't want to say too much but I'm really happy with it. I'll try to stay on top of getting out updates.

The long and short is that I really need to step up and write, write, write! I'm going to buckle down and get some of the back burner ideas I've got organized.

I'm a freelance writer I've been accepted into several anthologies and have had two issues published of my own IP. I'm currently developing several of my own stories but I'm open for hire. I'm currently in Florida where the Indy comic biz is pretty big but there always room to grow.
