Sketchbook - Creative Opportunity


SketchBook

I was asked by Sketchbook.com to write a series of articles for them about writing and the creative process involved in story development

In my article, 'A Writer's PerspectiveI shared my thoughts about the creative process in developing and creating strong immersing narratives.

In 'Conquering Creative ChallengesI talk about how creativity can be used to solve hurdles during the creative process. In my latest article I'm sharing my thoughts in how creative thinkers can seek out opportunities from social to old school networking to how best to get exploited.

Thank you for making True Patriot 2 Happen!

I would like to take some time here to thank everyone who supported True Patriot 2, which as you may know was successfully funded! It's a fantastic feeling knowing that people do want original Canadian superheroes made. It's such an honour to be a part of such distinguished Canadian comic creators, all of whom are working hard to make True Patriot 2 even better than the first!

I'll be teaming up with Adrian Alphona, who was such a joy to work with on our story titled, Uh-Oh Ogopogo! from the the first True Patriot anthology. For True Patriot 2, we will be bringing a brand new story with some familiar characters we introduced in Uh-Oh, Ogopogo! along with a new writer that I'll be co-scripting with. She's bringing a wonderful whimsical tone to the story we're telling, which I can't wait for everyone to see!
