Hello everybody, I want to make my own comic book just for fun and practice. The problem is, a story. I can't write stories.. especially long ones, so I ask for help, I am not sure what to do. I am thinking of going for short story comics so I can have only 1 issue. This isn't going to be published or anything, just for fun, and to see how it's like. The purpose of this is to improve my art in several different areas: storyboarding, layout, character design, interior/exterior environments, blahh everything =D. I can work on drawing people, creatures, and mechanical objects! I think it's a good practice, so I'm doing it. But back on topic, does anybody have any advice or can direct me to where I can find out how to write a short story? What are the essential components of a good story and such?
Any help is really appreciated, thank you.
