Restarted The Artist’s Way this week.
Needing to push past creative blocks.
I’ll edit these posts. Need to get framework in place for the story to develop.
Things falling apart before they fall together
The Woman Ember came into the story to help things get unstuck.
Brain waves. Chakras. Sometimes things have to fall apart before they fall into place.
Things are making more sense today.
Feeling so stuck with the comic. Current page (10) hasn’t progressed for months, other than lots of preparatory sketching.
The date of 8th August 2020 is what I’m aiming for for the Kickstarter to go live. Still on pages 10 & 11 right now. Rich from Comic Printing UK has advised that I aim for 32 pages (including covers) rather than the 26 pages I had in mind, to make the binding work. Which, while it’s more of a challenge time-wise will give the story more time to breathe, and now that I’ve got the date in mind synchronicities are increasing & ideas interweaving. Lots to do in this coming month but I’m so excited about it!
Page 10 is a beautiful blank sheet right now. Vibrating with potential. Page 11 was started when page 1 was just started. Before the story was formed at all. & I didn’t know which page it would end up as. It’s all been very experiential, and evolving in a way that feels at least as much unconscious as conscious. In fact the synchronicities throughout this process have knocked me off my feet at times. Especially recently about the Woman Ember pulling things together.
