SCRIPT WRITING is fun.
I always get ideas for comic books or graphic novels, but after drawing three or four pages, I lose the momentum, and the project dies. Same happens with all kinds of things, but with comic books it's particularly annoying because then it's not the matter of losing momentum as such, but more like being tired of drawing, wearing oneself out. I work much better in spurts than in marathon.
It never occurred to me that while I may or may not be incapable of DRAWING a comic, I could try my hand at writing one. I got CeltX (a good, free script writing tool) for an assignment (writing a scene for a tv show) and it's been sitting unused ever since, and just yesterday it hit me. Why on Earth do I not WRITE A SCRIPT if I can't put the story into prose form, and can't draw it?
I think I've written about 15 script pages since then. And it's been brilliant. I have visuals twirling in my head. Pretty pictures in a style that reminds me of Marvel and Modesty Blaise, and a new-ish Tex Willer I read a couple of years back. I think it was a Tex Willer anyway. I can never pull that off if and when I decide to start working on the actual comic, working from the script you know, but that doesn't matter. As long as the pictures float around in my head, I'm happy. I like writing what I see without worrying about the language and syntax and that kind of things. xD No one else needs to see the script!
I'm writing about an angel and a demon who start investigating why the angel now carries a child of a human and a demon, because she is neither, obviously. They run around my home town (masked into someplace else) and the general whereabouts, hire a folklore specialist and a shaman guy to help them, and explore Finnish mythology, general demonology and religion, and their own troubled pasts. Someone's going to kill me for blasphemy, but people have written worse things. Just look at Supernatural.
