Version 1.1 is ready!

Since it would be really annoying for me to keep e-mailing people whenever I have a new version ready, I’ll post the versions online.  HOWEVER, for security reasons I have to use a password– to open the document, the password is my first name (no capitals).  If you don’t know what my first name is, please e-mail me and I’ll tell you.  Alternately, you could just try guessing male names that begin with b– it would probably be faster.  

This is a hassle for everyone, and I apologize, but this helps me avoid the nightmare scenario of a complete script going viral before people have a chance to buy it.  

Script version 1.1, pages 1-37

A summary of changes from 1.0 to 1.1: 

  • I removed about two pages worth of material, including most of the side-scene with the cabbie and the page where he signs a legal contract.  
  • The “Jebediah Whateley” tangent is completely gone.  It was convoluted and didn’t add anything. 
  • I’ve started sharpening a few of the scenes, mainly Gary-Orange and Gary-Felix.

    I think I’m doing really well on schedule. My only hard deadline is that I have to have the final version of the script ready by February. That’s when Rebecca is scheduled to ink the sample pages, so it’d be really bad if the script were still evolving at that point.

    Let’s see. I’m at 37 pages. I feel that about 20 pages are pretty good so far. Only 5-10 have gaping holes, like scenes that need a lot more style. I should have that all done within a week.

    Then I’ll start on the series synopsis and issues 2 and 3. February is a long way off and I want to submit as soon as the colored pages are are ready. (Also, I am dreadfully slow at writing and doing work in advance will help reduce the likelihood of bottlenecks down the line).

    I’ve just reached the AO scenes and I’m laughing my head off. 😉

    I’m glad to hear it. I had fun writing the scene, especially the goofy “nom nom nom” sound effect.
