Hey there, Wil, I'm curious: Have you checked out "On Writing" by Stephen King (2000)? It's helpful up to a point, but Mr. King really doesn't explain HOW to write, but more so, how HE writes. It's helped me a tad a time or three, but you've got to have quite an open mind when getting into "On Writing" & give it a chance to soak in to be able to use any of the suggestions or examples, so to speak. Me: I normally have had a picture in mind, or a sort of "film" mapped out in my head of a story I'd been thinking about & wanting to put to pseudo-paper (aka: MS Word). Once I've "watched" this "film" of a story in my head a few times over, I begin to write it down & keep going. Later I review & edit. But it's all mapped out in my head before I ever write anything down. I've never published; I think it's because when I read it back to myself it sounds idiotic, or as if an eleven-year-old wrote the words down! HA! But it's the actual laying-down-the-words, the corporeal, tangible action of typing it out that gives my own writing any worth to me, personally. So, to all: do what feels right & write what you feel! It's really the only way to push forward & break through. By the way, why do you think you'll only write 22 pages? Maybe once you get going, you won't be able to stop at page 22! Just saying, a comic might turn into something more! ...one never knows... :~) Thanks for sharing. Cheers! Best, Ginger ps: I just realized one of the main character's names in one of my very few stories is 'Wil'...yes Wil w/ one L. Hmmm... (no foolin') Take care.
