This is the most recent post from my other blog at Blogger. I’ll quote myself here. (So I don’t get into copyright issues.)
Writing a Comic Script is Hard
Or at least slow going. It is most certainly not like writing a narrative. I have the narrative. I’d like to think I’m good at writing. Which is why I’m writing this blog. I gave myself a week to write the scripts while looking at the narrative. Thinking I’m in the clear, I start in on it. Then I realize it takes about ten minutes to write a comic script page. As I realize the level of abstraction involved in translating pure narrative into comic script format, I again realize that maybe leaving myself one week to write the whole script start to finish was a bad idea. I mean, this isn’t anything but my senior project, right?
I’m not finding it all too hard, however. Like I said, the process is slow going. I don’t know how writers can bang out scripts left and right like this. I mean, they must be on crack.Eh. Well. I’m gonna read more of The Way of Kings now. Maybe that will spark some more work effort and then I will write more comic script.Until next time,Jacob.
