For my writing friends and artists, exhaustion and overworking are two companions of the indie worker. I’m no exception this year, starting my own company.
For this Christmas, I wish for you to catch a few of those flying minutes for yourself and for those you love. And if you can mute those minutes into hours and days, all the better!
Here is the photographic adaptation of the comics in the previous post, by an enthusiastic fan.
Réalisation by Christ Oliver, with Jean-Louis Trudel, a fellow science fiction author.
Now we are hoping for the movie adaptation. It would not be a big-budget feature, but it would certainly echo with the many writers almost drowning in a sea of publications traveled by big corporate ships chasing the elusive best-sellers…
A tribute to all of you, artists able to create without the pressure of success!
Another bookfair is coming at Montreal! And, if you are a lesser-known author, you might experiment this:
One hour at the signing table.
I drew this page after some signing sessions for my novel Piège pour le Jules-Verne, my table close to the Harry Potter stand.
Jean-Louis Trudel, my fellow SF writer, had accepted to figure in the comic, and even contributed to the scenario.
This page was originally published in a fanzine, (MensuHell) and found an echo with many friends and comic creators, among them, Christ Oliver , who did a piece on it (coming on my next post).
My profound sympathies to the all writers who will experiment that desertic bookfair at the Salon du livre de Montréal , very well frequented. When there are more than 800 writers vying for the public’s attention, it is bound to happen…
