Hello everyone! I'm sure about %0.0 of you care, but I'm happy to the point it's unhealthy!

As few, or none, of you know, I have aspirations to be a writer. Well, as fate would have it, I NOW OFFICIALLY AM!!! That's right, I'm going to be published!

No, I'm not bringing a little chief fan into the world. I'm not a daddy, as many lucky fella's in here are. But I've given birth none the less. I've written a poem, and it's getting published! Most may not care, but my words inside of a hard bound novel are almost too much extasy for me to convey.
Fan of poetry or not, a fellow chief fan is now officially a writer, and damned it, I'm too excited to keep it in!

This brings me more joy than.....well, almost as much as would a chief super bowl. I'm just sooooo happy I'm to stupid for words. I'm telling anyone who'll listen, and damned it, you poor slobs almost feel like extended e-family.

I'd buy you all a beer if I could!!!!

Cormac,

I'm sure he can't post what is to be published but maybe he can share something else with us. Brad?

Yeah, I figured so.....but just something unpublished would be fine. I'm no critic but I'd just be interested.

Congrats Brad !!

That is quite a great achievment! I like to dwell in poetry, once in a while. Normally just spinning nonsense at home, but I can rip a few here and there. SO, I know it is not easy.

I like the idea of a Chiefs poetry book, I bet quite a few of the locals on this board would buy a copy. Maybe make it more general like the Dilbert-type comics. You know for the Football crowd, with a poetry spin.

Hummm, I will have to mull this over and maybe spin a little Chiefs stuff.

Anyone else want to try- it might be fun

Brad,

Having had a short story published before there are three really neat times when it's hard to describe the feelings that you get.

a) when you get your story accepted.
b) when you look at the bookstore shelf and see your book sitting there and
c) when you get that check! [img]http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/wink.gif[/img]

Congratulations!!!

<welcoming another into the fold>

Whoooo hooo good job.


But now your making me feel bad. A freind of mine an artist type has been trying to talk me into writing the dialog for her comic book for over a year but I've never made the time.


Rod
Rather childish could probably write a comic book.
Any money in that???

Rod,

As a writer of comics off and on since 1992, there's a lot more work involved than you might think. It's very akin to writing a script of a play or a tv show. You have to develop the pacing to make the action flow from one panel naturally to the other. I find that my classes I took in college when I was toying with a Broadcast Journalism degree help a lot. I tend to storyboard while I write to try and figure out exactly how many panels I need to get the main point I'm developing across.

<rant> I don't understand why people who write books are looked up to, and people who draw are looked up to, but if you combine the two talents it's automatically "inferior, childish" product.</rant>

Rod,

BTW, if your friend needs a co-writer, I'm in the market for a new challenge [img]http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif[/img]

I remember the first book I published, lots of work. The bad thing for me was I was out of town when the books arrived and had to wait 3 days knowing Chilton had Fedex'd the books to my house. That was like waiting for Xmas! Congrats I know how you feel!
