Most of my writing has been of the comic strip/comic book variety, so there may not be as many naked words here as one might expect. That said, I often do dash of the random bit of prose, and will most likely post some of it here.
But for now, here are a few examples of my wordsmithing:
Several years ago I was commissioned by Nina Paley to write scripts for her syndicated comic strip "Fluff." All of them can be found on her sprawling and wondrous site ninapaley.com, but I present a sampling of my favorites here, along with the original scripts.
Once while driving from Tucson to the Bay Area, a whole superhero team sprung into my mind, and as soon as i got home I wrote it all down. Originally I'd intended to do it as a comic book, but with this new internet thing, and inspired by writing Fluff, I decided to try it as a regular comic strip. I finished 5 of them, and then got distracted by other strands of the rich tapestry of life.
Years passed, and I took a long road trip, intending to find which of the many things drawing me I would want to draw back. It came to me that the project that gave me the most enjoyment to work on was... Idiot Force! And so I sat down and wrote & drew the first issue of the Idiot Force comic book. Not sure whether to look for a publisher or to self publish, I did neither, and decided to do more online comic strips. Perhaps enough people will like them that there will be a groundswell of interest in seeing the comic book, in whatever form it appears.
The storyline in progress is a somewhat altered version of the story that I'd originally intended as Idiot Force #1, way back when. The story I finally wrote for the first issue is entirely different, but this one still cried out to be told...
