Last night and today I worked on the script for my graphic novel ON CAMPUS. I’d forgotten how much I love writing and drawing graphic stories. Every time I work on it, it’s like a little piece of my soul comes out of hibernation, and I feel complete.
I gave up cartooning in college because I was so busy. As a post-grad aspiring to be an author, I worked mostly on my novel, since traditional novels appeal to a broader market and are a more “practical” use of creative talent.
But I can’t deny my true love any longer. Graphic work holds at least as big a place in my heart as traditional writing. From now on, I’m going to make it more of a priority in my work time. I hope to start ON CAMPUS as an online series in fall 2010.
What about you? Do you have a hobby or passion that has long lain dormant, which needs to be re-awakened? No time like the present!
