A Meeting of the Minds...

12:52PM:
At 2:00, I have a meeting at the Spot Coffee a half a block from my house. I'm meeting a gentleman who made a post of Craigslist looking for an artist to make comics from his stories. I responded, he visited this blog and we setup a meeting.

Today's meeting is really gonna be about feeling each other out. See, this project is a non-paying project. He needs an artist, and though I don't really need a writer, I don't have the time to write.

The only way money would come into the picture is if by some miracle, this comic was a masterpiece and gets published. In that case, royalties would be split 50/50. This is a big "if."

Like I said before, I don't need a writer. In fact, I have 7 or 8 different stories in my head and various notebooks just waiting to be developed. But, as I said before, I don't have the time right now.

When I think about 2 guys taking a chance on something that could easily become a waste of their time, I think, "Isn't this how the greats started?" All of them I'm sure. I bet Stan Lee himself took a chance and stepped out onto a ledge. Now look at him.

I should say though, this is just to feel each other out. I don't hold much hope here. If I consider his stories particularly amazing and I'm confident I can do them justice and find the time to do it, then we are golden. Other wise, it's no big deal. I'll post an update after the meeting.

UPDATE! 3:26PM:
Well I'm back from the meeting. I gotta say, I think this guy had 2 very interesting ideas. I don't know where I stand on whether I will be able to do them or not but I have something to ponder. I'm going to get a transcript from him to read, brainstorm and doodle from. I will decide from there.

All in all though, he was a great guy with the unique kind of mind writing something unbelievable would need. He's got promise and potential and no matter what we decide, I wish him a lot of luck.

I totally understand. But you NEVER know what will come of it. It's a small world. You may make contacts or get another idea. Do you going to any anime conventions, comic or sci fi conventions?

I've never been to a convention before. I had a group of friends that did the convention circuit in high school, I could never get into it really.

Collaborations that work are rare, but when they do... it can be magic! Can't wait to hear what happens!
