From Story to Script

Over the past few months, I’ve been contributing a column called Right Place at the Write Time to the website Fanboy Buzz. The focus is all about how to write comic books.

Since writing is a process, I’ve decided to detail the who shebang from motivation, how to make time to write, how to come up with idea, and how to turn those awesome ideas into comics. I’m by no means a master at this point, but I enjoy teaching and sharing knowledge so the whole goal is to learn together!

In the fifth column, I discuss how to take an idea and turn it into a comic book script. Check it out if you haven’t!

This column is fueled by feedback, so if you think I’m crazy and wrong and silly, let me know! If there’s anything in particular you’d like me to talk about, also let me know!

Right Place at the Write Time

A few weeks ago, I added a Column page to this website, but never really gave it any air time. Time to correct the oversight.

Recently, I pitched a column idea to the comic book news/info website Fanboy Buzz.

Lots of comic book websites have columns where people do reviews, interviews, talk about things they like and dislike within the industry. I wanted to bring something a little bit different to the table, so my column idea was to follow me, an up-and-coming comic book writer as I try to break into the industry. A place where I could share my experiences, thoughts, emotions, successes, and failures. I’ve been cranking these columns out as I have time (or when I need a break from actually writing comics) and thus far, they’ve mainly been about foundational ideas and expectations from anyone who is actively looking to make comics.

As they progress I’ll go deeper into details and experiences with my current projects, and I hope to do some interviews with professional writers within the industry. Start reading now and I’ll post new columns as they become available!
