Graphic Novel Writing Retreat #4

Just got back from another writing retreat. The graphic novel is shaping up – very exciting!

Since this is by far the longest comic I’ve done (about 200 pages, as opposed to, well, 14 pages), I’m having to figure out my systems as I go along – brainstorm on 11″ x 17″ sheets of paper, thumbnail on 8.5″ x 11″ templates, etc. I need to see a whole chapter in order to wrap my head around it, so a long hardwood hallway is great:

Rearranging, editing out, adding in.

Day 6: Goodbye, house. Sweep floor, clean sink, reflect and review and– shit, the ferry!


Whoa! A mad dash for the ferry dock, and I am again the last one on the boat. Kind of a Dukes of Hazzard jump there at the end. (Screee!) Goodbye for now, Friday Harbor! Back to rearranging papers in the hall at home.

Thanks again a shmagillion times, Alix, your place is perfect.
