Welcome to my very first Blog post! I’m super excited about creating this blog because I wonder if people wonder where I get my story ideas from. And this will be a great avenue for me to tell you guys!
Now before I say anything else, I want to warn you that my grammar or/and spelling might be a bit off. But you’ll say, wait a minute! Aren’t you a writer? You should be excellent in English grammar and be quite elegant, quite frankly speaking!?! Why don’t you be quite then… ah! JK!!! That was me having a conversation with myself… us writers!
But jokes aside, I’m a comic book writer. We are more content driven than word driven. For example, books would be written like:
“When she arrived at the fringe of the beach shore, her toes were tugged in sand as if they were being caressed. The light gestures of the ocean, splashed on her feet so gently, as her eyes wandered in the horizon in amaze.”
Instead, a comic would be written like:
“She arrives at the beach, starring at the ocean. Have her full body in view from her back, with the ocean view. Have the colors tinted in Sepia tint for dramatic effect.”
Basically most of what I write, doesn’t make it to print. My writing is meant for the artist. And whatever I write that will make it on print is sent to my editor for review. You see my point?
The breed I belong to is classified as writers, but are identified as ‘story tellers’. NOW that is what I’m passionate about. Story telling!
And comics is such an amazing medium to do that because its visual. And if a picture is worth 1000 words, then I’m saying a whole lot more in a comic then I would in a book.
I was always a story teller, you should’ve heard the stories I told my dad when I’d get home late. This was years ago, I’m an independent man now!
My wife fell in love with me over my stories. And now she’s supporting me as I go through this journey of bringing those stories to you.
I know you will fall in love with the characters. Be surprised by the twits. And will be amazed at how meticulously thought out the plots are. And you’ll be googling a lot of the concepts in these stories… Because I’ve done tremendous amount of research in order to manipulate the facts and science, after all its Sci-Fi, right!
I want people to be entertained, and to get away from their worldly problems. And I hope my stories can do just that. If you like my content, please be sure to subscribe.
I look forward to hearing from you guys!
P.S. My first comic project, Elemental Balance will be releasing on Kickstarter on Oct 9th, 2018.
