The difference between writing and drawing

The trouble with being a writer is that every so often ideas pop into your head, sometimes at inopportune moments.

I was day-dreaming yesterday about the beginning of a film that I'm currently working on and then started thinking about the start of the story and then started thinking whether its the best start possible. I think it very well maybe y'know.

However, I am seriously considering writing a prose prologue that Alan Moore, Grant Morrison and Neil Gaiman, to name but a few (I'm aiming high aren't I), often have at the start of their work.

I may also start including footnotes as I get a lot of enjoyment from the silly ones in Terry Pratchett books.

But absolutely no appendices, they used to do my head in when I read Lord of The Rings as a teenager. But not as much as the songs, oh boy.

Watching the Watchmen

We could have done with this a few months ago!

Still, Christmas is on the way.

Writing Style

It's just occurred to me that although Alex and I have had many discussions about how we want the work to look, we have yet to have any discussions about writing style.

I don't know whether this means that Alex has no opinion about my writing or if he's happy with it.

Maybe I'll ask him this week some time.

I'm also thinking that maybe we should have started with a story about werewolves and such like, which I suspect we may have had more fun with. That could always be the next one of course.
