Sketchbook - Conquering Creative Challenges

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

My first was article was, A Writer's Perspective, where I share my thoughts about the creative process in developing and creating a story. The next article in my series for Sketchbook.com is up now, titled, Conquering Creative Challenges. It's about how to use creativity in solving creative hurdles. Like how I was inspired to develop a format to allow me to collaborate with a concept artist not versed in the sequential storytelling format of comic books, as well as some problem solving experiences I have writing for videogames. There's also images from projects I'm actively working on that you can see there as well.
