A Vantage Point of Asses, chapter 7
Sketch I did last night trying to draw my main character from my NaNoWriMo novel ‘A Vantage Point of Asses’. I didn’t do any writing though, oops. And I don’t know what to do about her hair. Meh. Any ideas? Her name’s Jenna.
In fact, does someone else want to do all my character design? I pretty much suck at doing stuff without reference and all my freehand/no ref faces look the same, more or less.
The title, now reverted to ‘A Vantage Point of Asses’, refers to the main character’s general point of view as she is in a wheelchair. It’s going to be a YA novel and I changed from Butts to Asses because Asses has a more clear double meaning, here.
There will be a bunch of humor and a bunch of asses (and cute butts, too). Well, you get it. It starts like this:
Imagine being at butt height every single day. Jenna Carter knows exactly what that’s like; she’s been staring at people’s butts for years, spending most of the day sitting in a wheelchair. That’s her awkward predicament.
I’m not going to finish in time but I don’t really care, I just like that I have an idea of what I really, really want to to write. People with disabilities are not often represented in fiction. I always wanted to do this, but I never quite knew where to take it. I felt a little under-qualified, too. I should be an expert, being in a wheelchair and all, but I guess I never felt I had a right to assume I am the right person to represent people with disabilities in a book. I feel better about it now, though. Do you think it’ll appeal? What do you think, followers?
I’m really curious to read yours!
Love love love,
