UPCOMING STORYTELLING TIPS SESSION!
This Tuesday (March 5th) at 5PM EST (10 PM GMT) I will be running the first of several storytelling tips sessions. They’re open to anybody to attend. I’ll be using Livestream to give a presentation and take questions on Brainstorming, Character arcs, common ground, & theme. A 1-page brainstorming worksheet will also be provided! You’re welcome to join us!
One thing I really like about Tama’s character is that while his temper flares quickly, it dies out just as fast. Most of the time, at any rate. Particularly on things that he has a little experience with, such as his siblings…How well he’ll deal with Kali dishing out judgements on his behavior is another matter entirely. XD I should have just titled this chapter “Who is right and who is wrong?” because the whole thing has been people getting into very grey-area arguments…I swear, chapter eight has a lot more action and a lot less inter-personal drama!
Wasabi was this weekend, and a grand time was had by all! I met some current readers, and introduced several new people to the comic — speaking of which, HELLO WASABI FOLK! Welcome!! And thank you for coming by the booth!
- Justin Carmical (known as Jew Wario for those of you familiar with Channel Awesome) made a point to come by after a brief Twitter conversation. What a wonderfully nice guy! He bought a book and everything! Justin recently diverged from Channel Awesome to pursue his own projects, one of which will be an action series called FKR! Very exciting!!
- On Friday I sold a book to an absolutely lovely person who returned the next day to let me know they were enjoying the book…AND that they had brought me a hand-made, chain-mail present to say thank you! I confess to getting all flustered and a little teary, because nobody’s given me a present like that at a convention before and it was just so incredibly sweet. Absolutely made my day!
- Sharing a table with the always wonderful Nami who was an absolute joy to spend the weekend with. Not to mention, a fount of convention knowledge and wisdom. I pretty much could talk with her forever, and she tolerates my neurotic apologies for talking too much with a great deal of grace. 🙂
