Yes, it has been a while since I posted anything on here. Things have kind of been in a bit of a slump for me recently. But, I have not stopped writing. In fact, I am writing a children's book that I hope to have published by the end of the year. I will share more details in the coming months, but for now, my lips are sealed. I also plan on attending a screenwriting workshop in the near future to draft and hopefully someday produce a film or TV series!
But while on the topic of creative writing, I attended a seminar recently at Barnes & Noble hosted by a children's book writer on how to write books for children. And one of the things they passed out was a little book that had samples of several manga, one of which intrigued me: a manga called Cells at Work!
I found the concept highly similar to that of Osmosis Jones, in that it was about a red blood cell making oxygen deliveries to various parts of the human body, and is joined by a white blood cell who kills bacteria and viruses, and usually saves the red blood cell from a gruesome fate. All the cells in the human body are anthropomorphic, in that they themselves look like humans going about their daily business.
I find the concept highly interesting, and I hope to find it on the bookshelves, either at Barnes & Noble or my local comic book store. So if anybody hasn't checked it out, I highly recommend that you do.
