I have a problem in the stroy I'm writing. I have given my hero a clue and it's pretty vague. I need to find a way to give him the solution to let him move on to the next confrontation with the…Continue
"Hey, everybody. I just had a thought (it was bound to happen eventually ha-ha): There is a book I refer to when developing characters: Dungeons and Dragons Complete Guide to Villains. Having an idea of how your characters would act could go a way in…"
"Thanks. I had held the same opinion to a degree, having grown up on radio evangelists having local businesses sponsor them, but with the televangelist scandals of the 1980s and 1990s, I thought it might be a good thing to get other opinions. Thanks…"
"There is nothing inherently wrong with sponsorship. Look at any Christian magazine, website, or blog and you will see that they have advertisers. Of course, you should be mindful of the content of the ads and only choose advertisers who you…"

I wouldn't claim to any expertise in any field, but my areas of interest lie in the writing and scripting of comic books (I couldn't draw a straight line to save my life ha-ha). I also have interests in history, science and science fiction.
My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
I'll confess that my testimony is by comparison, dull as dishwater. I became a believer in my teens and have found that my faith has become a stabilizing influence in my life which I wish to share with others.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
It would probably be as a writer or scripter for one of the smaller companies. The pay might not be as good, but the chances to express myself and share my faith might be more prevalent.
Favorite Comic Creators:
I hate to say it but none of the current creators really stand out as favorites. I've always been fond of the work of Frank Frazetta, Julie Bell, Olivia DeBeredinis and Neal Adams however.

Its cool that we have shared interests in science, history and cartooning. Look forward to seeing some of your thoughts in discussion and blog. Also, since I am naturally nosey, do you have any scripting/writing projects on your horizon?
Thanks I look forward to acquiring them and reading through them. The one main thing I think I struggle with is professionalism with my work, like when you read the comic section of the newspaper or in a comic book being able to put my work into the boxes.
