I must admit, I've been a bit influenced by reading Jim Shooter's blog.
He's been doing a lot of reminiscing over at his site for awhile now, and it got me thinking about the early days when I was just breaking in, to the days, and years, that followed.
I've got a lot of stories about working in comic books also.
Some of you know that I get up early, 4am, lately tho, it's been around 5am.
In those early hours before anyone else is up, I check email from over nite and read some news, and perhaps get in a card game of hearts or spades on yahoo, to help wake me up.
I've also been inspired to do more writing lately, I'm not sure why?
Perhaps turning 50 this past May, I'm facing "true" middle age and mortality.
At least on this earth.
So I stumbled upon a post by Jim one day and subscribed to his blog. I began to enjoy reading about Marvel before he was "editor in chief" and upon his taking the reigns and all sorts of other 'inside' stories to boot.
I decided it might be fun for me to use some of my mornings to write about my years in comics. I'm not sure if I will follow a time-line or just go where the stories want to take me. But I figure I'll write when the inspiration and the story comes to me.
Are you ready?
