A QUICK ONE
Legal Dispatch 0.3
So, I’ve managed to give myself only 15 minutes today to get this newsletter, so this’ll have to be quick, but I don’t want to miss a Friday after only two previous newsletters. Let’s see how much I can accomplish with the time I have before I take my daughter to her weekly horseback riding lesson…
Another weird week. I had a bit more success getting writing done, but I’ve come to realize that (a) Covid is here to stay and (b) I have to make some mental/emotional adjustments for that.
This past week has mostly been spent on a brand-new comic project I’m incredibly excited about. It’s not only the first work-for-hire comic I’ve done in a year, it’s with characters I’ve always wanted to write. Call this one PROJECT SOLSTICE for now.
At this point, you’re probably thinking, “Another comic project? Heck, another project?” To which I will respond, “Yeah. But this one’s worth making time for.”
Actually, that wouldn’t be my response because I don’t view things as “needing to make time for.” Rather, my process is very similar to the way I managed my workload as an attorney. Back then, it wouldn’t be uncommon to have 25 to 30 cases at once, but I found that only five or so were particularly “active” at a single moment in time. And right now things are such that I can easily move projects from front to back burners. This week, PROJECT SOLSTICE was on the boil.
LA Law continues to inch forward as well. Here’s an update: https://deadline.com/2021/08/la-law-jesse-dayna-bochco-sequel-blair-underwood-abc-status-1234822677/
There were other things I was up to this week, but because I’m pressed for time, let’s jump to:
First and foremost, I need to wrap up the outline and first issue of the aforementioned PROJECT SOLSTICE. I thought I was done with the script but just got word that Issue One is 30 pages, so I’ve got a bit more writing to do. Textbook definition of a quality problem.
I’m also dead-set on finishing the pitch for PROJECT GRANITE and the script for the third issue of PROJECT CRACKERJACK.
Okay, I know I said that everything from “the vault” wouldn’t be Arrow-related, but — say it with me now — I’m pressed for time, so here is an employment ad for Queen Consolidated. (Please don’t send me résumés.)
Finally, here’s a glimpse from an upcoming issue of Last Flight Out (a/k/a PROJECT HIGHLAND) by the amazing Eduardo Ferigato and Natalia Marques.
Okay, I gots to run. Next week will be more substantial, I promise.
Be good to each other.
