I love transitions:) As you read the story as a whole you will see what I am talking about.

Ok back in the groove. I just finished the first 20 penciled pages to book 8 and let me tell you, I am really jazzed and moved. It feels nice to get back into the flow, especially since I have been struggling to do that for a while. I just got a little lost and had to find the drive again. Hence the importance of a huge buffer:) This way there is no breaks. Book 7 goes to press on monday. I am thrilled about that as well. Also I will have a few other announcements next week.

I am also getting excited about Emerald City – gonna be a new experience for me, I have never traveled this far for a show. I have no idea how things are going to go.

On another special note. Today is a special day for our family. My youngest boy turns 10. A fantastic age and I love watching his imagination go into full swing. Its why I draw prints. That was an age when life was still very very precious for most.  Limitations were few as well in your mind and life was carefree for the most part. I hope his day is filled with all sorts of magic and adventure. Have a great day my son. I love you – dad.

Ok back to the creative table…..

I just realized how badly I mangled that second sentence. Hopefully you still can understand.

For me it’s a little bit of love-hate with the transitions. It helps make the world immerse me in the world, and I like the more leisurely pacing. On the other hand, sometimes I really want to know what happens next, and the transitions mean a longer wait. Even so, I know that good storytelling takes time.

    good storytelling does take time and transitions though create longe wait times. when you read it as a whole make for far more compelling storytelling.

I have not noticed the tower before… Is it bigger than the tree itself?

I love the transitions except that means -another- update before we're in the action again 🙂 Very theatrical though.

    I know…. but they are so important to the big picture
