Character redesigns, more writing, and etceteraJuly 20, 2010
A few months ago, while I was SLOWLY plugging away at another script, a couple of emails with Sarah inspired me to put together some SHORTS featuring Penelope and her web cam. The first one is finished, and took me three days to do, with sound editing, animation and rendering. It features a redesigned Penelope! For my money, her new look is just great. Seeing that smile of hers, I can’t help but smile myself.
Evolution! You gotta love it!
Here’s the new Penelope:
BIG DREAMS is about one third complete, I’d say. It’s coming. Look for more shorts, featuring Penelope as well as the other characters, in the meantime!
Writing-wise, there are TWO scripts that have reached maturity. A few hours of typing and then editing on each one, and they’ll be ready to give to the actors! The writer Orson Scott Card said that it takes several MONTHS of gestating in a writer’s mind for a story to be ready. As much as I’d like all of this to move more quickly, I’m finding that that seems to be true. With both new scripts, I’ve just recently made important connections about completing the story! The Baby Daddy now has a climax that grows out of the characters, and My Feral Laddie has a funny and PERFECT bit with Abigail and TK that I can’t wait to show!
