Hard Writing

Here's the thing. I love writing. Love it unendingly. Really flat out my favorite thing to do. But, I have one project I've been writing for a while that's just killing me. It's this 48 page OGN, I'm doing with an INCREDIBLE artist from the UK, who's just going to kill on it, but goddamn, do I have to finish it first. The problem with it, is that it doesn't come naturally to me. Genre-wise, it's a stretch, because it screams to be formulaic, but for it to be good, it can't be. So I have to go against the instincts of telling a story like this and do it "backwards" more or less.

I'm nearly done, and once I am, and Eddie starts drawing it, I'll be very happy. Cause then it's on to the fun adventure story I got knocking around in my head.
