I cranked out 14 days of scripts today. The Voices In My Head have been yammering non-stop for a week now, but I’ve been busy with book-stuff. I’m STILL supposed to be busy with book-stuff (footnotes aren’t done yet), but the buffer dropped low enough that I sat down this morning knowing I needed a good scripting jag.
I had one. It wiped me out. 19 rows of scripting isn’t really a whole lot of words, but scripting has to be TIGHT in order to work in my strip. Voice, plot, punchline… some of it is formulaic, but doing two weeks’ worth of strips in one sitting is very draining.
It’s also fun. I didn’t know what exactly was going to happen, though I knew the where, the who, and the why. Now I know, and I can’t WAIT to see how it looks drawn.
But right now I’m hammered. I’ll be role-playing here at the Keep until midnight-ish, and probably trying to pencil a few of these scripts on the side. Hammered or not, I really want to see What Happens Next.
