Turning my story, Snow Kiss, into a webcomic!

I've spoken to this young girl, Kat-Chan, from Comic Fiesta Forum and she's possibly going to collaborate with me next year into turning one of my works, Snow Kiss, into a webcomic, which is something I've wanted to do for ages.

However, I said possibly, because, after previous experiences and failed collaborations with some artists (I wouldn't say that it's 'FAILED', considering that none of them EVER started), it's hard for me to make any confirmation or guarantee at all.

But if this happens, I'll be a really really happy man.

Snow Kiss is a rather interesting work I completed last year. Amazingly, I started working on it when I was 16, and it was supposed to be the second fanfiction I've ever attempted (I refer to it as fanfiction because the characters are named after Japanese celebrities, but it's pretty much an original work if you look past that). Meant to be a witty romantic comedy, things became so horrible and mushy that I ended up abandoning it and went on to write other stuff. It was also in script format (not screenplay format, just script format) because that was the time when I was bitten by the writing bug, and wanted to write materials for me to film in the future.

Anyway, yeah, I abandoned the story back in 2000, but picked it up again 2004, completely turned it upside down, inside out. Originally some crap little story about a cynical author stumbling into a has-been singer/widow with a sickeningly adorable son, where a love-hate relationship developed between them. I turned it into a story of a guy desperate to finish a crap little story about a cynical author stumblling into a has-been singer/widow with a sickeningly adorable son... to make it sound simpler, I turned the original story into a story within a story. A guy wanted to finish this corny little story he wrote, failed, so ended up enlisting the help of his friends for this impossible task.

Chaos and comedy ensue... which, I personally think, will make a rather interesting webcomic.

All right. Here's the poster I made for Snow Kiss. Behold!

Hehe. If you're wondering how insanely good my possible future collaborator is, here's a sample of her drawing. Be blown away!!!!!

UPDATED (DEC 1, 2012): 7 years have passed. No, the comic was never made.
