Thank you for the Support!

I know this is going to sound petty. I had a friend put up a post about how people don’t support your business Now, I’m not coming at anybody, really, I’m not. If I make it as a writer of any kind, sell a movie, etc….and then you support me…cool. However, please don’t ask for handouts when and if I make it…if you don’t see my value, that’s cool, I understand. But for those of you who have financially supported me, for those who haven’t asked for free copies once the novels and comic are done…for those of you who understand that as an artist and writer, I need to eat and support myself. Thank you! I will have a new Patreon coming soon and Kickstarters for the following:1. Favor of Ares (Comic Book/future plans: animation/film)2.Head 2 Head (Mobile Video Game…getting a prototype done)So, stay tune and again. Thank you.#teamjenkins #beterrific #writer #director #blerd #comicbookwriter

Future Plans

Well, I feel I found myself as a writer. I will focus on becoming a comic book writer. In the next few days, I will be converting my short film scripts into comic book scripts.

I’m trying to budget so I can have an artist to work on my books. This will affect publishing. The goal, going forward, is to do a page a month. The main series I will focus on is Favor of Ares. Yes, I changed it back, too many creators have used Sleepwalkers.

My target audience is still young adults. The genre will be urban fantasy for the most part.

If money isn’t an issue, I will try to publish more than one page a month, but going foward, that is the plan.

I don’t know when I plan to publish. I’m looking at November, as I’m still editing the series.

My YouTube channel will have reaction videos to cartoons and anime that were adapted from comic books and manga.

I’m deleting my previous Patreon, and will have multiple Patreon accounts for each series.

Oh, I’m also going to be doing the lettering in most of the projects as well.

Head to Head, the video game I’m developing, is moving into the first prototype stage. I can’t share more than that, but if you’re interested, stay tuned, because there will be a Kickstarter and Patreon for it, and then we can share more.

Thank you for following

Be Terrific!


Mastery Journal: Multimedia Adaptation

This is one of the classes I looked forward to taking. We had two options. We could adapt a short story, The Gift of the Magi, into a short film script. Creating a comic book script from a flash fiction we wrote earlier in the year was the second option. I chose to adapt my flash fiction series, S.P.O.T. (Special Police Operations Team) into a comic script.

The story, The Response, is a story that follows Clyde after his partner, Wade, was shot. In the story, he has a flashback to the actual shooting. In the end, he decides to go after the Los Deimos by himself.

In the adaptation, I decided to play out the flashback first and lead to the events of the flash fiction. This helped to build conflict between Wade and Clyde, who the reader can tell have history together. Their conflict with each other helps make the comic adaptation stronger than the flash fiction.

I was able to build upon both their characterizations, since I had more room to write. I didn’t adapt anything out, but the process of adapting a story to a different medium is challenging, but fun at the same time.

Dr. Demus will be drawing and coloring the first issue!

This assignment, and the class overall, helps me become more diverse as a writer. I feel I’ve grown in confidence in writing scripts. I now have several scripts and stories, which I wouldn’t have because I was stuck on personal projects. So, I’m thankful for having the opportunity to grow.
