Any good writer worth his salt has at least one of these lying around….
This is what I was able to find so far of my Father’s journals. I hope to be able to find more.
The first thing I’m doing right now is reading over the novel that was in the process of editing. Not making notes or anything like that. Just reading. I really like the story and I’m finding myself getting very drawn in to it. But as I do, I begin second-guessing myself.
“Is this really good or do I just think that because I love my dad and I would think that anything he wrote was good?”
“No, he’s written some bad stories before and I’ve recognised them as such”
“What if I can’t recognise bad writing?”
“What if I’m not as good at writing as he was?”
But then the story grabs me again and I put the worries aside as I read.
Like my dad, I’ve always loved to tell stories, however, I chose a different way to tell them. I chose sequential art as my storytelling medium. Now I need to put aside the artwork and begin to think more like a writer. In the end, I’m sure that this will also help me in my work. Think like a writer and catch the story.
