So I got Alan Moore's book on writing comics out of the library, and I like it already. I'm only reading the introduction, but he already has some inspiring words. It seems like to me, he is saying "Don't write stupidly. Write something that will have an affect on someone. Something that that person will look at and absorb into their soul."
That interpretation could be wrong, but I think it is a good enough start for me. I take a look at the script that I am writing and I think of it as entertainment. Now if the characters in my entertainment just happen to have an emotional effect on someone for a few lines out of mindless adventure I will be happy.
