I Made It Into The Comic-Con 2010 Souvenir Book

Well, Comic-Con came and went, but there’s only 12 months left for the next one, and one of the best surprises for me was finding out that my “Peanuts” fan art made it into the 2010 Souvenir Book. I’ve already written about the making of this illustration, but since I’m such a flashy motherfucker, I’ll just mention it again here. So, if you attended Comic-Con this year, or if you can get your hands on a copy of the book, be sure to check it out.

Bueno, Comic-Con vino y se fue, pero solamente faltan 12 meses para la siguiente, y una de las mejores sorpresas para mí fue descubrir que mi fan art de “Peanuts” fue incluido en el Libro de Recuerdo 2010. Ya he escrito sobre la realización de esta ilustración, pero, pues, ya que soy un cabrón que quiere llamar la atención, lo mencionaré otra vez aquí. Así que, si ustedes asistieron a Comic-Con este año, o si pueden conseguir el libro, los invito a verlo.

10 Writing Tips

This list is from the book, 'Conversations with Wilder' by Cameron Crowe, an interview book with writer/director Billy Wilder. I think it’s great and I believe than it can be applied when writing for film or TV, or a novel, or even comics. I'll just post it here as a reminder:

1. The audience is fickle.
2. Grab ‘em by the throat and never let ‘em go.
3. Develop a clean line of action for your leading character.
4. Know where you’re going.
5. The more subtle and elegant you are in hiding your plot points, the better you are as a writer.
6. If you have a problem with the third act, the real problem is in the first act.
7. Let the audience add up two plus two. If you do, they’ll love you forever.
8. In doing voice-overs, be careful not to describe what the audience already sees. Add to what they’re seeing.
9. The event that occurs at the second act curtain triggers the end of the story.
10. The third act must build, build, build in tempo and action until the last event, and then—that’s it. Don’t hang around.
