This is always the fascinating thing about creating. I’ve had the scripts and storyline for what’s coming up in Legend of Bill plotted out for some time now. And then, suddenly, tonight, as I was working on Thursday’s strip, and drawing Ganyon, I got an idea, as I considered this side nugget of an idea that occurred to me long ago, but I had forgotten. And then it clicked. And BAM. Plot out the window. New plot unfolded through the act of writing. The characters and the world became real to me as it so often does, and I sat back and essentially became nothing more than a scribe to the reality that started to unfold in front of me. Gawd, I love it when that happens. The best writing is when you are no longer the writer, but rather an observer as the characters and events themselves take on life and dictate for themselves what will happen.
