Graphic Novels / Re: Who's working on a Graphic Novel project?

Wow, Marla, good question--I hope another artist has an answer for you!

Regarding Scrivener, I just discovered formatting for each script element (character, dialog, etc.) can easily be changed under Format/Scriptwriting/Script Settings. I guess that solves my flush-left dilemma. I love Scrivener!

Thanks for the tip. I will have to go in and change mine to flush left.

Thank you, Karen! I'll definitely take another look at Celtex, particularly since I discovered changing template formatting in Scrivener is not as easy as I originally thought.

Carrots: Ironically, yesterday I made orange and carrot jelly. Well, a tiny bit, anyway. It's amazing how much you have to use to get the tiniest dribble. As long as you have the right ratio quantity, pretty much everything works. There's a natural pectin in many fruits and vegetables which help the jam set.
Thanks for your suggestions.
By the way, it will look disgusting to you (not a very good photo), but I made a ganache about three years ago when John's fellow students asked for truffles made from sweet potato. I didn't like them, but they asked for more.
I'm posting up two photos: one of the sweet potato ganache & one of white chocolate with a layer of home-made jelly.
All of those suggestions about using the jam sound good, but really it's just stuck in the fridge until I am ready to use it in my chocolates. I need to get a toaster! :muahaha

John suggested we should start our blog again.

Thank you, too, Karen. I just looked at Celtix and didn't see any information about comics or graphic novels, so I'm wondering if you just use it as you would for a stage or screenplay? Or it could be I just didn't look closely enough!
Marla,
In Celtex, you open up a new project, and click on comic book project.

Raspberry-lemon would be divine!! I'm very intrigued by the sweet potato, too (and I'd want to add raisins and cinnamon! - - or would they gum up the works??).

And how are you using your jam? Toast, crackers, muffins, the middle of chocolate candies? I'm always curious about such things......

Can't wait to hear how your concoctions turn out.....and about the writing they inspire!!
