I am sharing the hand-drawn version today and will share the computerized version later this week.
I had never read a graphic novel before, and I never realized the amazing and powerful stories that can be told through them. It has made me re-think the form in which I write my memoir. Because you can tell a story chronologically and a graphic novel can make it pop, whereas just text can be a bit monotonous.
Add steroid-induced stupidity to the list, as I spelled steroid wrong throughout.
If you are interested in learning more about graphic novels, there is a whole genre about illness. Specifically, I recommend Mom’s Cancer by Brian Fies, Stitches by David Small, and Cancer Vixen by Marisa Acocella Marchetto.
I would love to hear your thoughts on mine, and as I said, stayed tuned for the computerized version.
