Projects! (status report #2)

I have a load of blog entries to catch up on… -_-;;; I actually have several saved as drafts. Some are about half-way completed and the others… well, I have writer’s block with those entries. *shrugs* I’ll get it together.

First of all I’d like to say that I have made leaps and bounds with my first book. I currently have enough material for half of the book. It’s in need of some heavy revisions, but it’s a start. I decided to pool all my energy into my Contemporary Christian fiction novel. I also made the decision to combine my father’s biography into the third installment of the series. Due to the nature of what will be discussed I would prefer to tell the story using an indirect approach. I can avoid having to ask permission to release certain information or other legal matters if it’s all mixed together. Besides I’m sure some of the people involved will want to remain anonymous and I can respect that.

My collection of creative works is on hold (mainly because I would like to start from scratch with it). There are some poems that I would like to replace since I’ve been having a myriad of revelations in the past couple of months.

The web comic… at first I wanted to commission someone to do the artwork for the comic since Carmen is unable to continue due to time constraints. A friend of mine, JP, suggested that I attempt to do the artwork myself. I had a moment of silence after hearing said suggestion. I thought he was nuts but after some words of encouragement from him, I decided to give it a shot. I have about three pages completed, but I want to work on them so they aren’t so… rough looking. -_-;;

My mother’s an artist and I’ve got a teeny bit of skill. It’s not my forte. However, I want to make her proud by giving it more practice. Hopefully, I can iron out all the kinks and have those three pages posted by April. Since I’m dividing my time between my book and then having to do double duty for the web comic, I will probably commit to one page/one scene a month. At least until I get better at drawing.

While there have been set-backs, I’m staying positive. If one door is closed another will open (in some cases I’ve been known to kick doors down, but that’s another story, lol).

One thought on “Projects! (status report #2)

  1. Glad to hear you’re working on the webcomic. I think it’ll be great. As for your artwork, I’d suggest starting very simple and making it more complex as you advance. Above all, don’t forget your Source: of inspiration, skill, strength. All that’s Good and Perfect comes from Him, so if you want to be Good and Perfect…

    P.S. If I can be of any assistance, let me know!
