Frenchy gets here own solo series!
I have been writing and re-writing this epic tale over and over again for two years. Finally, I said, “enough is enough” and I deleted everything I wrote so far and started over. I came up with an amazing story that sounded too good to be true. I knew I had written the greatest story anyone has ever read. Then I did some research and discovered I had plagiarized the 2001 film A Knight’s Tale. At first I thought I could just tweak what I wrote. Then I saw the movie again and remembered that I hated the film. Afterwards, I realized I hated the story I wrote. So, I deleted that one too.
Then I decided it should be a musical. I spent six months writing songs and composing an awesome musical score. One song, “The Nights are Dragon Along” had Tony Award written all over it. I had to learn to play a ton of wind instruments in order to shape the composition to sound like what I was hearing in my head. Choreographing the big dance numbers was difficult since my characters have four arms. You have no idea how hard it is to coordinate poetic movement for an extra set of arms.
Then it hit me. There is no sound in a book and 99% of the population cannot read music.
My third attempt at writing Warrior Wench Wendy had failed. I deleted everything and burned all of the sheet music. I saved the choreography though because it makes for some great exercise. I seriously need to lose a little weight. Plus, I have a pretty big backyard. If I only had an extra set of arms, I would probably wouldn’t look so silly when I do the moves.
I won’t bore you any further, but twelve attempts later, I finally said, “enough is enough” and settled for this latest version. It has some of the better elements from each of the versions I wrote. That said, they do not come together well, nor make sense together, but I am tired of writing. Look, I am no writer. Heck, some say that I am no artist. One thing EVERYONE says about me is that I am one helluva perfectionist. So I deleted everything again.
I am now starting over. I have written half of issue one. I hope to complete this comic book my October. This will give you plenty of time to save up your money. When the comic book debuts in 2026, and you’ve saved a mere penny per day, you will be able to afford French;s very first solo comic book!
