Comic Inspiration

A Pen In Each Hand

By Baker

Exercise #1: Read a comic or graphic novel. Pay attention to the marriage of image and prose. Try writing six panels worth of a story. If it clicks, keep going.

Exercise #2: Ask a writing buddy to do a collaborative project. It could be an article, a scene for a play or a fractured fairy tale. Try different approaches and see what works. Publish it!

Exercise #3: If you usually submit to electronic journals, research print journals and send something out. Buy a few small press journals, read them and pass them along to other writers.
