While I won’t be tabling, I will be stopping by CXC this weekend. If you’re in Columbus, you should stop by. It’s one of two big indie comic festivals in the city, and it’s a blast.
If you know of any events that are accepting artists, let me know!
The Letters of the Devil
Never Go Home
I started attending some meetings for writers that want to be held accountable for deadlines. It seems like a useful group that should help keep me honest.
At the first meeting, someone brought up the Delilah Devlin’s new project, Stranded: A Boys Behaving Badly Anthology. I am not including the link because it is erotica, but anyone interested can find the project very easily by searching for her name. While our group was not particularly comfortable with writing erotica (nor am I, for that matter), we did discuss using the other aspects of the pitch to create our own short stories, with a deadline of November 1st.
While discussing the idea, a horror story started forming in my mind. As soon as I got home, I wrote the first draft of the comic script. That’s what’s great about horror: it can come together in a flash. While my mystery and comedy work require a great deal of thinking and planning, my horror work is based more on gut-punch emotions than intellectual structure. Making them is relaxing, and they’re often my favorite works.
So anyway, keep an eye out for more updates about Never Go Home. I hope to have it done by the end of October.
And with that, I’m off to CXC! If you want to support my work further, please visit my online store. I also have Patreon and Ko-Fi accounts if those are more your speed.
Rock on, guys, and never stop drawing.
