Yah, so...about last nite. Sorry about all that.
This whole blog thing is a new step for me, but I'm willing to give it a try. It's sort of like a gift to myself to prompt me to write more, and hopefully hear from others whether or not they think it's any good. I need to hone my skills and would like some way to garner a little feedback, so if you wouldn't mind... Think of it as a little gift to the both of us: I write and you respond. It's a win-win, no?
I'd like to be just a bit more succinct with my endeavors and try to improve my focus. I've never really been trained in the art of writing as I thought I should be, but maybe that's not how it works. I'm into a whole bunch of stuff as well, so I'm hoping that I can show off some of the things that I like and we can all get sharing a little bit more. As long as it gets me writing.
But here's the real deal: I'm working on this comic. It's this huge, sprawling magnum opus that I've been cooking up in my head for a long time, and things are finally gathering up enough steam for them to gel together and stick enough that they're beginning to make sense. All in all, there're about four volumes in varying lengths that I'd like to tell, and you to hear.
But the proof is in the pudding. I'll tell you now that I've pulled out the plum and have entirely too many damned metaphors and enough cliches to shake a stick at. I've been a bad boy. I've not followed my heart for such a long time that at this point it's all going to flood out and splatter onto the page. I think it's going to be a mess. Yet I've faith. I've had time to gather all that is in this noggin, now I just need to make it make sense.
