caseycrawford asked: Kieron, how much time would you say you spend writing per page? How much per script? Also, if I could be so selfish, how much time for revisions/2nd drafts?
It’s impossible to really average that out. It takes as long as it takes.
My “basic” work routine is basically that I write five pages of first draft every work-day morning. Sometimes I write more, but abstractly never less. Afternoons are for everything else, including polishing.
The actual manual typing is the small part of it though. You’re really doing the thinking about it all the time.
I tend to think in terms of reworking rather than drafts. Scripts change radically as I cut it apart. Things change entirely when the pages come back. Comics writing, for me, is pretty fluid.
i wish i could write scripts…because there are so many stories in my head….but i am afraid i am more in the drawing section…maybe i should try a comic?
