This blog was pretty quiet in August. You may be wondering what else I have been up to. Well, I recently wrapped up a round of revisions on a novel work in progress. It is with a critiquer at the moment. I have a new short story off on submission to a magazine and have just gotten another ready to submit as well.
In the drawing department, I've been sketching characters in preparation for my next promotional mailing. I want to get a batch of postcards in the mail by the end of the month, but I'm struggling with getting the characters to a level of dynamism that satisfies. My people aren't quite interesting enough for the market I'd like to get into. If you, dear blog reader, have used any resources - books, websites, blogs - that have helped you get your characters to the next level, please, please, please leave the names of them in the comments. Thank you!
