Paddling and not in a good way

I have a lot of oars in the water lately. I am writing a couple of short stories. I want to submit one to a local alt weekly's fiction contest and the deadline is late December. I am creating a map of a fictional city to set my stories in. I am developing a soundtrack for a couple of characters.

A new challenge presented itself today. A new weekly paper in my town is seeking a comic strip or panel. Cartooning is my first love, a marriage of my writing and limited drawing skills. So I picked up some Vellum paper, a new metal ruler with cork backing, an Ames lettering guide, and some new pens to play with. The drawing is actually the easy part, coming up with a funny strip idea is torture. I don't really care for the weekly paper either. It's fluff filled with ads for bars and shit. A demographic darling. I'd still love to have an ongoing comic strip in it though.

In the vein of the High Fidelity movie, my top five dream jobs are: a syndicated comic strip artist with an edgy and semi-lucrative comic, a mysterious successful genre-bending author, a comic book writer and/or artist for a violent but poignant comic, the richest Powerball lottery winner ever!, and Tina Fey's personal boy toy. But not necessarily in that order, Ms. Fey. wink wink
