  • Best Laid Plans
    I’ve missed two deadlines. First off, this blog post is going up four days later than I’d wanted. Second, April 30th was the deadline for the first draft of Blythe vs. the Werewolf. I completed it on May 3rd. But I got it done. Working on the draft throughout April was an on and off struggle. There was a span of over two weeks where I didn’t work on it at all. And then I stopped… Read more Best Laid Plans
  • Slumps happen
    Writing slumps happen. I just wish I wasn’t currently in the middle of one. I didn’t have the strongest start on my draft at the beginning of the month, but after a few days, things were moving at a steady clip. I was completing scenes and figuring out how to solve all the little issues that cropped up in the outlining phase. In the process of drafting, newer stronger ideas popped up that I could… Read more Slumps happen
  • Staying on Track
    Something I struggle with is maintaining a consistent workflow on my personal projects. If there’s a real-world consequence for me missing a deadline, that’s a great motivator for me!

  • Spooky Story Skeletons
    It’s April, which means it’s a Camp NaNoWriMo month! While I’m not officially participating in Camp NaNo this month, I’m still using April to draft the Blythe vs. the Werewolf script. Before diving into the draft, I wanted to get some prep work done. The hope is that if I’m well prepared, I won’t spend the entire comic-making process floundering. Since it’s a visual medium, I want to get the design elements—like character and setting… Read more Spooky Story Skeletons
  • Project Spotlight: Blythe vs. the Werewolf
    Last post, I shared some sketches for Blythe vs. the Werewolf, the short standalone comic I’ll be working on between now and October. I’ll definitely have more sketches of werewolf and character designs in upcoming posts. This week, though, I want to go a bit more into the project itself. The titular character, Blythe Bonfils, is a wizard who takes on odd jobs of the magical variety. The comic takes place ten to fifteen years… Read more Project Spotlight: Blythe vs. the Werewolf
