May 26, 2011Crazy weather, crazy times. Started this yesterday at lunch, finished it this morning before I came into work: "White Dove In A Crazy Storm."
I read a good quote recently (see below) and when I mentioned this to Paul Hutton (The Top Secret Writer) he went harping back to the episode-sequence he thinks answers that equation.
Well, insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, so I agreed with him and made up my mind that I would do this next Mickey Free episode exactly as he wants, frame for frame. I am Ulysses asking my crew to bound me to the mast so that as we sail by Siren's Island I will demand to be let free, but don't listen to me. We have to do this version.
I pulled out an unfinished painting of the Mickster straddling two worlds and put it in the layout as a fpo (for position only). Here it is:
"First get the reader to care about your character, then get them to worry about him."
