Hey I have been busy. Life’s been busy but at the same time I don’t feel that I’ve accomplish much in certain areas of my life have you all felt that way?
Anyways some news:
I’m an Assistant Editor for a small indie comic book publisher Affinity Press. I’m also a new contributor to Nerd Shuttle and I’m taking a break from contributing to Talkingcomics.com.
I’m also working on submitting my first novel titled I, Darcy. That’s right the same I, Darcy that I posted two excerpts here on this page a while ago. I turned those two into pieces of my novel. I’m going to submit the novel to Chromatic Press who are open for submissions! They’re looking for comic books, prose, audio, and illustrators. You can check out the submission requirements.
Now let’s not get crazy here, my novel is a short one-4 chapters and a prologue and epilogue. Maybe one day I’ll write a longer one but since this is a first for me I’m doing a short one. I’ve always written small short stories (I never finish most of them), poetry, and comic book scripts that were at least 4 pages in length. I’ve never had the patience to write long stuff.
So this is a challenge for me to write a novel. So far it’s going well. I finished the outline (which I had been freaking out about) I’ve written the prologue, the first chapter and started chapter two. I’m almost ready to submit the story (it doesn’t have to be finished), so wish me luck.
I also think that I, Darcy could be a comic book but we’ll see.
Besides this I’ve been reading I started reading Octavia Butler’s Lilith’s Brood Trilogy series with the first book Dawn. So far it’s great! I’m nearly done with it too.
I’ve also been listening to and find great music particular punk, rock, bands and artists. I watched two documentaries which you guys should watch: AFROPUNK the Documentary and American Hardcore (which also has a book that the documentary was derived from).
I’m slowly making transitions so look for more to come from me in the future.
Alright this has been your early morning update!
See you later my fellow writers!
