Comics writing, Creative analysis, Writing

2013-Winner-Facebook-Cover

I’ve completed National Novel Writing Month. The last few days had been really hard – had a bad reaction to antibiotics this week and couldn’t sit up yesterday, when I had just 3000 words left – but I managed to work pass the pain today. You can see my validated entry here.

Technically, the novel isn’t finished, but I’m not sure I want it to continue as a novel. Due to how visual the body of Compromised Systems ended up being, I do feel strongly that it would work far better as a series of comics than as a piece of written prose. So I’m gonna look at adapting it. Though maybe I’m being harsh on myself – I do have plans to inflict it on several guinea pigs before making a definite choice.

To be honest, the whole process reminded me why I switched from writing in the novel format to screenplays and comics five years ago. I really don’t do introverted writing with characters deeply dwelling on their situation. Not that I’m all action either. I prefer events and surroundings to reflect the inner workings of the mind.

Anyway. I’m gonna go and have a lie down or something. Going to my area’s TGO party tomorrow.

And a shout-out to the NaNoWriPod! who helped get me through this last week.
