It is HERE now.

Thank you.


Moving out!

November 25, 2009

We’ve moved!

I will keep this up for a while…to redirect you stragglers.

Please come and visit the newest version of the Rapid City Script Blog.


Deadline: Now.

November 15, 2009

Today is my deadline. I don’t think I will meet with a new issue.

I forgive myself a little because I have posted all these re-writes in the past week or so.

I am still going to make go at it.
The two obstacles I am really facing here are my own creative resistance, and this adorable little (55 pound) puppy (pit bull) who thinks that sitting my lap is so much more important than me getting any work done.


Mirages

October 28, 2009

The trap of progress.

I have been working lately on getting this blog up and running. This part of my writing project, but it is NOT writing. I have been putting time in, I have been working, but I have not been writing.

Even right now, i am clicking away at the keys, but I am not writing.

I can even double justify this procrastination with this particular project. In feeling this way, I am doing research on what my character feels when he has everything he needs to get started, but just winds up spinning his wheels.

Time wasting, though, is never as frustrating and depressing as time WASTED. Once its gone, its gone. You look at it and you say “what did I do with my day, my week, my life?”

The flip of that, though, is that the scary dismay can turn in to motivation. “Ok, I wasted X, i can’t waste one more minute.”


Issue #1

October 20, 2009

This is the script for the first issue of my monthly superhero comic book, Rapid City.

Read Issue 1 here.

Panel 5: Rampart powering down and looking around all exhausted. Similar high angle shot, but this time there is much more disarray. People are scrambling and cars are trying to back up or leave somehow. Some people are abandoning their cars if they are blocked in.

RAMPART

When people hear it, they’ll be relieved. Like, “ok, BLANK is here.”

I began this as an experiment in “jumping in”. There are things that will need to be changed before print publication, but I wanted to preserve in the interest of the experiment.


The Return

May 26, 2009

After a brief hiatus, I am back on the (hopefully) daily comic review schedule.
If you want, you can help me maintain this schedule be leaving comments, asking questions, and even suggesting comics to review.

Thanks
