time & space & stuff

the things I do when I'm not writing (or, perhaps more accurately, the things I do when I'm supposed to be writing)

Remember when the FF met God and he took the form of Jack Kirby?
God, I loved Mark Waid and Mike Wieringo’s run. I might need to go back and read it again.

"Might?"

Amelia’s bummed she can’t make it to Dragon*Con. She has a very important birthday party to attend. So she insisted we shoot this video so she could send her love to kellysue and the rest of the CarolCorps!

Anonymous asked: Whenever I start to work on a story idea and hash it out, I think "this is stupid, this doesn't make sense, why am I bother?" Is it best to scrap the idea and start over?

I get a lot of questions like this.

stupid.  I’m worried this is stupid.

 what is stupid?  well, any story can sound stupid.

" a 15-year-old gets bit by, I don’t know, a spider and gets spider powers"

" so these four turtles are teenagers, and mutants, and, uh,  let say ninjas. yeah,  turtles."

" there’s this guy who finds out that, like, the whole world is really a mental hologram that we dream that the robots, like, put in our brains so they can use us as batteries."

 what is stupid? that’s the wrong question to ask yourself

 ask yourself, and be honest:  would I buy this story if I saw it on the shelf? does this story mean anything to me? when I close my eyes can I see this world? do I hear these voices?

 if the answer is yes then I think it’s your obligation to pursue the story. don’t worry if it’s ‘stupid.’

 some of the best stories ever told can sound stupid. also some of the stupidest :-)

'there is a fine line between genius and stupid'- said a great musician

 but if you have a real point of view and a real reason for telling them. if the characters are believable and relatable…

This PhotoShop fail is plastered larger than life in the entrance of my daughter’s daycare.  It’s so foul I almost didn’t enroll her.

 The  "Astronaut Series"

"An attempt to create portraits of futuristic astronauts but adding a lot of bio-engineered stuff to their suits so they are no longer metal and rubber things but something entirely different, suits were things grow on top of them, synthetics more linked to nature and at the same time more alien."
