- Writing a pitch is a completely different thing to writing a story.
- Try writing the pitch before you’ve figured out the minutia of the story.
Had a great day yesterday – got lots of decent work done and ended up catching a free gig by guitarist Michael Berk at the Queen Elizabeth Hall as part of the International Guitar Festival. He has some tunes at his myspace, and he said there was a video of him doing his guitar percussion thing up there but I can’t see it… (Oh wait – I think you have to be a member to see the video, and for once bugmenot.com is useless, because too many people have failed to follow the instructions and rendered all their accounts invalid!)
Wired has run a story about digital comics, which you can read here. I wrote a similar, if more verbose, article for the last issue of Redeye – which you’ll be able to pick up here from these guys.
Nick Abadzis has written a great blog post for firstsecond books (make sure you click on his sketchbook). I wonder what he looks like. Maybe I’ve sat next to him on the District Line…
Anyway – the sun’s just come out so I’m going to finish writing these pitches in the park.
