these dreams of you

(Before It's News)

Andrea Joseph’s Sketchblog

A little while ago I signed up to a Creative Writing class. It was a course about creating short stories.
The reason I took the course was to give me a push with a graphic novel that I’ve had hanging around, in various sketchbooks, for a few years. Also I was really interested in learning some of the tools for building stories as I felt they could be transferred to the graphic novel. The same rules must apply, right?
I also just wanted a new challenge.

Well, it was all that and more. I have loved every minute of it. In fact, I’ve become a little obsessed. I can’t stop writing and the main character, from my graphic novel, has been following me around wherever I go. I’ve been thinking about her in almost everything I do and wondering whether she would do the same thing, spend time with the same people, like my favourite coffee shop (she would).

Now I’m finding that I have to divide my time, not just between myself and her, but also between writing and drawing. All of those times when I’d normally take the opportunity to sketch are now writing opportunities too. My graphic novel, originally, in my head, had been all pictures. No words. But, after the course I’ve changed my mind and I want to get some words in there somehow. I want her voice to be heard. I’m sure I can manage that. See above.

One way or another I will have to finish this book. Because I want my own life back.
