Drawing has never been a problem for illustrator Dawn Griffin. However, she’s now finding it challenging to sit down and write out her first graphic novel and looks to a pop-up ComixLaunch Mastermind group facilitated by Tyler James including creators Erica Shultz, Abrian Curington and Melissa J Massey to help her build better writing habits.
Highlights of This Session Include:
- Tips for artists who are looking to transition into writing full scripts for graphic novels
- How to find the time for your passion project when freelance work always seems to calling
- Simple strategies for building better writing habits
- Plus: Make100 is Back on Kickstarter in January

If you’re listening to this and the idea of meeting regularly with a small, focused group of like-minded creators to share resources, sharpen and strengthen your creative business strategies and to support each other in mutually benefical ways, sounds good to you… stop whatever it is you’re doing now and get over to ComixLaunch.com/mastermind to get on our interest list.
I’ve been running these mastermind groups for over a year now, and I’ve seen how powerful they can be for the right creators.
Everybody has blindspots.
We ALL have things in our creative lives we can’t see from the inside.
We all struggle with self doubt and paralysis, and we are all prone to getting stuck.
Albert Einstein said “we can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
If you’re ready to get new perspectives and solutions on your challenges from creators who have overcome them, a mastermind can provide that.
The right mastermind will support you, not let you fail, and push you to new heights.
Now, I realize many of you have gotten to this point largely on your own and may even be proud of that.
(And you should be!)
But at a certain point, what got you here, won’t get you there.
Your network may be your single greatest asset, and being a part of a dedicated mastermind group will quickly become the most invaluable part of your network.
Joining a MasterMInd may be just what you’re looking for IF…
…if you’re overwhelmed by all of the possible projects you could do and need CLARITY on what you should be doing to actually achieve your creative goals.
…you’re looking to create your biggest launch ever and have a breakthrough year.
…you feel like strategy, coaching, community and support are currently missing in your creative life and business.
…you’re ready to grow your network of quality peers to include serious creators with whom you can talk strategy, growth, and taking your creative business to the next level.
If that sounds like you, go over to ComixLaunch.com/mastermind today, and I can’t wait to start working with you!
Write down your current writing process.
