Talking Points

We’re steamrolling towards the end of 2012 and at this point, I should be finished with the Liberty Girl project in just a couple of weeks. As I tweeted last night, it’s hard for me to judge how good this work is — and I don’t mean in just the “I’m too close to it” way that we writers sometimes get. As I tweeted last night, there have been times with this that it’s felt less like writing and more like transcription. It’s not really my voice and not really my story choices for the most part. I’m trying to stay true to the words written by others. I’m adding details and even whole scenes here and there but it never feels like something I would have written, given my own druthers. Now I may write an original Liberty Girl story down the road… it’ll be interesting to see how that would compare to this. I’m certainly no stranger to writing other people’s characters but this is the first time I’m basically following someone else’s story so slavishly. Hope you guys don’t mind the peek behind the creative curtain here!

Our art today is another finished piece from the amazing Will Meugniot — this time around, we see Charity just after she’s crawled from her own grave! Spooky, eh?

Only one “vote” came in after yesterday’s post and that person suggested that I work on The Phantom Detective next. I think I’ll “kinda” do that — I need to read at least one PD story to get back into that mindset so what I’ll do is read one while working on something else (either Lazarus Gray v4 or Tales of The Rook v2). Then when I’m done with the research, I’ll jump over to PD.

The cool “licensing” deal for Lazarus & The Rook will be announced soon. You might be able to own your own Laz & Rook products! Stay tuned.
