Stuck in the 2nd Act of Life?


We often put our characters through the ringer in order for them to grow. So why are we so disheartened when the same thing happens to us?

Don’t be afraid of obstacles or failures in your own life. Once you get to your destination you’ll realize how necessary each of those steps were to help you get there.

As a writer you should have a deep understanding of character arcs. Apply the same principles to your own life. Write your story.

The night is darkest just before the dawn. Your 3rd Act may be just around the corner.

The Writer’s Guide to Creating a Comic Book

(From Concept to Publishing)

in 5 Easy Steps.

This is a guide for writers, who (like me) can’t draw, but still want to create a comic. The task of creating a comic book as “only a writer” can be daunting. (As a disclaimer, I have never published a comic… but I’m new to this so, give me a break. I do hope to have at least one book picked by the end of the year.) I have done my research, and have lots of experience with at least the first 4 steps that I think others might benefit from. (And hopefully we’ll cross that magic number 5 together.)

Without further ado…

The writer’s guide to creating a comic book, from concept to publishing, in 5 easy steps:


Comic Book Confidential

It doesn’t matter how great a writer you are – your unique, original idea is what’s going to get you published.

A. Do Your Homework.

Hopefully if you are wanting to create a comic book, you already read comics. That’s the first place to start. The comic book is a different world than the movie, TV show, or book, so get to know it, backwards and forwards. Study your favorite comics. What is it that you like about them? Pay attention to pacing and story and scene breaks. Where are the cliffhangers? Where is the action? Where are the personal moments? How much dialog can you comfortably fit on a page? How many panels per page? How many pages per issue? How many pages to a “scene”?

Get online, look for comic scripts. Learn the format. The weird thing about comic book writing, as opposed to screenwriting, is that the format varies quite a bit, so figure out what you’re comfortable with. Learn how to write for artists. Practice.

B. Create Your World
