So what now? I did a read through on Saturday, cleaning up dialogue, recasting some panel layouts. I have two bits that I still need write. One just says
CAROLYN: [quote from Kant]in which I need to find the appropriate quote from Kant. And the other is a paragraph on the power of falsehood (a la Eco) that I just need to take the time to think out and write up.
After those two things get done, I'm going to print out a few copies to hand out to suitably critical folk to get a good critique. And then? After I get their comments back and implement any changes I'll need to take care of based on their impressions? Then I start the art. That parts got me far more nervous than anything else associated with the project. I'm not sure I've got the stuff. I know my weaknesses as an artist. But I still want to give it a shot.
*sigh* This is where I start crossing my fingers.
