A Week in Writing #76

Like last week, spent most of the time going between mystery novel and comic book.

I'm about 300 + pages into rereading Public and Private after making the changes my editor suggested. I don't know if it's me, but it seems to read well. There are changes I'm seeing I want to make and some possible timeline discrepancies that I need to fix; like I think I have two consecutive days that are Sundays, that sort of thing. Fixable, but nevertheless problems that need to be dealt with.

The comic book is coming along. After some back and forth with our artist, the first four pages have been outlined and inked, which is a milestone of sorts. We decided upon a colorist and I'm hoping to get the agreement for him to sign early next week.

This is where the comic feels like a business venture. There are contracts, invoices and payments, not to mention reviewing all the art and worrying about having everything in the proper format. At some point, I may have to face setting up a website, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Can't wait to see what the pages will look like colored. The next step after that is lettering and once we have five pages completed, I hope to try and see if there is any interest in the project by publishers. But again, let's not get ahead of ourselves.

While that doesn't sound like a lot, those two projects have kept me pretty busy this past week.

I wanted to and still hope to write a review for Hail, Caesar! which I saw over the weekend.

Did post our second Year of the Monkey film post on Trophy Unlocked: the Marx Brothers' Monkey Business (1931), which I would hope everyone will read.
