advice: get a friend to help you write it. bouncing ideas off of someone else is always helpful when creating.

Thanks for posting these Skottie, very inspiring to see someone excited about their creation. I'm going through the same process for the first time right now too, so its fun to see you're having some of the same issues I am.

Im like prdl here, i am also trying to create something and is so good to see that even a Pro like you goes through this. So, thank you for posting this, these journals are working for me and are inspiring. :)

These are great posts. Sometimes I think making it to 'pro' status like yourself, means you no longer hit the road block when faced with a fresh sheet of paper, so it's good to know some trials are eternal :D

Hey Skottie, these video journals really inspire me. As I am also working on a GN myself, it really is awesome to hear other artists' process. Cheers and good luck with your book! :)

That’s what I’ve found, too. I’ve written broad general scenes on the overall direction of the story and then spending time “tightening” and crafting each scene. The latter includes any research I had to do, character fleshing, and crafty dialogue. I’ve found that it’s really two different gears.

It’s like golf…your long game and your short game. I’d guess both have to be good to make a good story, eh.

These videos are class, Skottie. Capital.

The one tough thing about this whole process is that once the ideas start to flow in, it can sometimes be REALLY HARD to keep up with the idea flow. Your brain is just sending data and imagery and scenarios and optional "branching off" scenarios that you just type what you can and come back later to fill in the details as best that you can. Good to hear you got some flow going on.
