Random thought, but I really like the chandeliers on this page.
I writing this on Thursday afternoon, and even though I haven’t yet finished my time with the Hard Rock, I’m trying to act as though I’m already onto the more writing forward phase of my life. Today (yesterday), I’m going back to efforts that I’d long ago abandoned: I’m trying to get a gig in mainstream comics.
Once upon a time, writing for one of the Big Two was THE goal. It was all that I ever wanted. Now…well, I’ve kind of done it. I’ve written a couple of stories that were published by DC and I’ve written animation for Marvel. Both experiences were SUPER affirming, but neither of them led to the life changing gigs I was hoping for. Harsh realities of the business, kid.
Now, though, things are different. I have a bit more of a résumé now, both in comics and in animation. I have representation. I even have a bit of a reputation. Moreover, I don’t yearn for a Marvel or DC gig like I once did. Nowadays, I just want writing work. The more writing work I do get, the more I can get. I want a regular gig writing so I don’t need a regular gig working in a bar. Don’t get me wrong, writing mainstream superheroes would be a blast, even working under editorial mandates and line-wide events. It’s just not the end all-be all that I used to think it is.
Anyway, wish me luck. I have very little to lose and quite a bit to gain.
