New York Time

I'm typing this post from The New Yorker Hotel. Top Cow is in town for the New York Comicon this weekend, so be sure to stop by Booth #217.

It's going to be an interesting rest of the week with 2 books set to go out, and no editors physically at the office. But at least we have Internet, so when I can hang out in the room, it's like a virtual office. Kind of weird not being there for pages coming in though.

I'm still hard at work on my top secret project with my Top Secret artist. But there's a book available at the show that spills the title, if not the creative team. Be on the lookout for that...

But anyway, I'm having problems with the script. I rewrote the second issue and felt like I had worked through some issues. Problem is they were all minor ones. The major ones I couldn't exactly get a handle on are still there. Having reread it with new notes, I definitely see that now. But to help me get this thing on the right track, I've started reading Syd Field's Screenwriter's Problem Solver. It's incredibly repetitive, but I think it's helping.

The end goal is to create a script I'm proud of so we can all have a book we're proud of. And of course, I want to do it in a way that actually allows me to finish working on it and move on to other projects a better writer for it. I'm trying to get there...
