I’m participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this month to edit (and rewrite?) a graphic novel I wrote way back in 2015, called The Uthers. Turns out that step 1 requires reading the original draft. And…oh boy.

Surprise! It’s a podcast! I’m pausing live streams for April to participate in Camp NaNoWriMo.
Camp NaNoWriMo is a writing challenge hosted by the same folks who run National Novel Writing Month. Here’s the difference: National Novel Writing Month is a challenge to write 50,000 words on a totally new idea. With Camp NaNoWriMo, you set your own goal.
So this month, I want to revisit – and rewrite – a story I wrote back in 2015, called The Uthers. Be sure to give this episode a listen if you want to learn more!
Now that Inktober is over, what’s next for November?
There are two parts: Comics, and Kickstarter.
FIRST – COMICS
This sketch is for a new comic I’m writing, tentatively called Vanita and The Demon King. I’m scripting it as part of National Novel Writing Month. It’s a writer’s challenge to write a new story in 30 days. USUALLY, you write 50,000 words on a totally new idea. But I’m being a rebel and thumb-nailing comic pages. Really, my goal is to write for an hour a day and get this idea fully sketched out.
If you read the Inktober comic, know this: the story is NOT over yet! New pages will post on my email newsletter once a week. So if you want to see what’s next for our resident cat witch and crow witch, get on that list, yo.
Meanwhile, The Legend of Azu-Mi will have a new page up tomorrow. Next week, Azu-Mi will update twice a week, on Wednesday and Friday. Once Azu-Mi wraps up, The Legend of Jamie Roberts will resume its weekly Wednesday update schedule.
SECOND – KICKSTARTER
The Legend of Azu-Mi is happening because KickStarter backers unlocked it during the campaign for The Legend of Jamie Roberts, volume 1. That campaign’s fulfillment is NEARLY done. Now there are just factors outside of my control to wait on.
Which leads me to…
I want to run a one-week KickStarter to get THIS beauty into print.
All the rewards are things I can print and ship from my in-studio set-up – no outside printer delays required. Right now, I’m planning out add-ons, the budget, and how to make gifting happen. Since we’re so close to the holiday shopping season, I’m considering adding the option for backers to choose if their reward is a gift for someone else…and if they want the rewards directly sent to the giftee.
I’ll be reaching out to my Discord peeps for feedback. If you’re a supporter through Ko-Fi or Patreon, you should already have access to the Tiny Dinos Discord server. Message me on the platform if you do not and you want to get on board.
With any luck, a campaign preview will be up by the end of this week. But email subscribers will be the first to know when it launches.
