Aww. (There is literally no grouping of letters that conveys the noise I made.) #Cat cnn.com/2020/09/26/us/…
I know it's a job but I'm trying to imagine making someone draw a fire-breathing bird-tiger-lizard, not once but many times because "my story". Like eventually there's going to be a con w/you sitting next to me for 3 days & I'm the bitch who decided "this needs 7 pages of dragon" twitter.com/PatrickZircher…
Nutmeg is a state of mind, not a species. ^·^ twitter.com/ScribeOfTheBat…
I know a niche of the readership are impatient with the lack of Whiskers & Nutmeg in the current Batmobile story "Motor Valley." They will be happy to learn there is a recent Cat-Tales fanfic which Selina's cats make a significant appearance archiveofourown.org/works/26554258
You need to respect that trust. If you don't, enjoy the Karma. 8/8
Another bete noire re creators playng w/materials whose properties they don't understand comes down to: YOU ARE IN THE TRUST BUSINESS. You are asking people to turn their imaginations over to you, to let a piece of their soul get into your car & take them they know not where 7/8
a story you tell together--and a dance, you are leading but you're not doing it alone.Your partners will & do feel a sense of ownership. There's nothing you can do about that & to actually judge and belittle them for it reveals nothing but ignorance of the whole process. 6/8
I die a little when I see those working in these media who don't understand the basic mechanics. What the reader/audience contributes from their own head will always, always, always be more real to them. This is a world you are making together 5/8
You have to extrapolate the cathedral from the reflection of a stained glass window on the floor and the sun setting outside as it dims, the approach of a mob from the sound effect. 4/8
in your mind, HAVE to connect the movement between panels in a comic & have to supply the world beyond that sliver of a charity concert stage in Buenos Aires that you view on angle in Evita. 3/8
It's a rarity when the shark attack in Jaws or close-up on the thief's face in Kagemusha (rather than the battle he's watching) forces you to participate in an active way that's hardwired into those other media. You HAVE to turn words on the page into pictures & sounds 2/8
Maybe my favorite writing-adjacent subject. Words on the page do something that both comics & theatre do, only it's supercharged. Film & television can only rarely manage it. As P says "They are passive and most of the time you're an observer." 1/8 twitter.com/PatrickZircher…
#OTD in 2003 Cattitude began, the #Catwoman Origin that bothers the hell out of DC Comics, offering a Selina Kyle who is Bruce's equal in her privileged background. Read it here catwoman-cattales.com/thetales/catti… ...
