Ha! We must have been on a wavelength here, both mentioning the page to page story and the cliffhanger page breaks. Great minds 😉
The one take away from the Wolverine 8: Logan film you should be thinking about is Who is X-79. X-79 is a clone of Wolverine (as as pointed out by ) this is not the first clone of wolverine to appear in the marvel universe.
Tom downed his wine and gave anironic laugh. “The love of my life is dead and you have the nerve to ask me that?” He stood suddenly, the movement lithe and violent. His eyes had a diabolical gleam. The hazel colour of his once bottle green eyes, eyes that had been identical to hers, shocked Cassandra they had darkened even more just a few hours. “Stop staring at me!” Tom snapped, “I’m not insane you know!”
When I prepare a story outline, I usually have a good idea of where I want the story to go and have already crafted out scenes and moments within the story that I 8767 d like to incorporate. There are times my thoughts don 8767 t have any structure, but I have an idea of where I 8767 d like to end up once the story has been told. In order to organize everything, I will fire up Microsoft Word and start writing with bullet points.
This worked quite well for me overall, and I got a first draft put together which, although crudely drawn, was a fully readable version of the story. This was the point I was at when I left uni, and after coming home I looked over the first draft again, and filled it with sticky notes detailing changes to the action, dialogue, composition, etc. I 8767 ve just finished drawing out a thumbnailed second draft and will soon be ready to read it over.
I 8767 ve been working on a graphic novel during my last term at university, and I 8767 ve continued to work on it since I 8767 ve left. It 8767 s been an interesting process because, although I have worked on comics in the past, I tried some different techniques and processes this time around.
I love that she is named Antoinette and hates dolls. Such a girly name for such stubborn miss. This piece is really great it feels like it came straight from a completed work. Your style is lovely as usual, Marianne.
I just write everything in Word. I learned about proper formatting in college but it always felt clunky to me, worrying that everything looked how it was supposed to, that I was using the right type of font or terms. Now I don 8767 t worry about it, and the writing comes faster. Having a program like Final Draft might help, but I don 8767 t have anything like that.
As I said before, getting straight into drawing quickly has worked well overall for me, I think because I 8767 m a very visual person and this method also holds my interest better. The issues I 8767 ve had mainly stemmed from the fact that this began as a uni project and really quickly became bigger than I intended. This meant that I was quite rushed to get the first draft done and ready for my tutors to see. It also meant that the plot outline wasn 8767 t quite ready either, so as a result I found that my first draft lacked clarity and closure, particularly for the characters personal arcs, and I 8767 ve been fixing these issues in the second draft.
