Learning how to write a convincing narrative is something I wish I prioritized during the many years I was honing my artistic ability. I was quite disappointed (actually, at the time, I was devastated), when I learned that writers are much more successful in the cartoon business than artists and animators. When I realized that major studios outsource the bulk of their animation overseas (mostly South Korea, Philippines, and India), I knew I had to expand my skill-set.
Creative writing is kind of a new experience for me, and a very necessary skill to add to my toolkit. As a one-man production, the audience is willing to forgive a lot of flaws due to low budget, but poor writing should never be one of them. Which makes this the next big challenge for me: figuring out when I am entertaining or informative enough to actually make script, and build a cartoon around it. But considering how it took me this long to develop my drawing skill, writing may take a while.
