The parallels may not escape you.
My only complaint - if I were to have one - is that there isn't much room in Inktober for the writer. But that's really only true if you're lacking for imagination. Last year I decided to play along by writing a new page of comic script every day (a practice I'm doing again this year), but I figured for our purposes I might try something a little different.
I want to celebrate Inktober here at Thought Balloons by getting writers involved with the whole thing. So this week, jump on your social media of choice and track down some of those amazing Inktober pieces, find one that resonates with you, and write a script inspired by it. It can be a direct continuation of the image. It can be based on the feeling the image creates in your mind. All that matters to me is that you find something you like and have fun with it.
So Thought Ballooners new and old, find something you like and make something of your own from it. And most of all, don't forget to credit! :)
