When the going gets tough...

Mr6's literary career continues apace. He's finished writing his first original story - following our discussion about plagiarism - and has branched out into comic books. I've decided to help him along a little, begin building his 'platform' so to speak, by featuring the first three pages of his comic book as today's guest post. When he is rich and famous and supporting his ageing parents, he will be able to remember his humble beginnings on his mum's quaint little blog.

There is also the unspoken bonus of his mum not having to think up a blog post tonight when she has many of her own unwritten original stories to magic up out of nowhere.

So, without further ado and all that. All text is [sic] and is accompanied by illustrations of the same character you see above. There are a lot of thought bubbles (as per image) containing words such as 'ha' and 'ha ha'. The text inside these is identified below with TB. I can't use all illustrations as he has used his own name throughout - I have yet to discuss with him the joys of the nom de plume.

the ADVentURES of [Mr6] the night in shiny amar  - TB 'ha'

page 1:
once there was a night his name was [Mr6]. TB - will I win. I have to win. will I. ha you lose.

page 2 (pictured)
he was going to win a batle when he ran away. TB - I new it I am not going to win.

He assures me there is more to come. I don't know about you, but I'm desperate to find out the night's motivation for running away. Any suggestions as to what the reason might be?

  1. Oh goddess that is so cute. I want be a fly on the wall as he sits down adn writes and draws these.


  2. Oh wow! Best night story I ever read, so far. Make sure you post the rest because I want to find out what happens next.

  3. How cute. You do save all these don't you?

  4. @Heather - every single one. Imagine what my filing cabinet will look like by the time he's 8. He's quite prolific...

    @Toni - if he ever gets around to the ending, I'll be sure to bring it to you, pronto.

  5. Is the night running away from the day perhaps?

    Can't wait to find out what happens next. Disney Pixar here he comes! What a great undiscovered talent. Well, discovered now. And given the attention he deserves.

  6. Great stuff. Sounds like a real page turner. Please keep us updated with the next installment.

  7. Hello! Thanks for tagging along this week at the Tuesday Tag-Along blog hop! I'm a follower of your blog! :)


    By the way, that is SO cute! :D

  8. It's great he's got you for support. Cute story and cartoon.

  9. @Deer Baby - LOL! An excellent motivation, very true to character.

  10. He's beyond cute. This is the biz.

    I think the night runs away because Dawn is coming to get him. x

  11. So cute!! My mom kept a letter my little brother wrote to her when he was about 6 explaining why she needed to let him get a pony, what he would feed the pony and how it could live under our house. It's really precious and such a sweet memory now that my mom is gone and my brother is 40 something....

    Thanks so much for stopping by The House on the Corner ~ I'm following back!!

  12. Found you on the blog hop and am a new follower...your blog is really great! You can check out my newlywed adventures at http://myhappilyeveraftertheend.blogspot.com/

  13. A strategist as well as a story teller in the making. Lose the battle to win the war??

  14. That is gorgeous, keep fostering that imagination :)

  15. Obviously we all need to know what happens next - and see the accompanying visuals - particularly as he was so confident he was going to win... until he ran away of course. Just love it!

  16. I read this this morning and forgot to post a comment!

    I found one of Nugget's latest masterpieces to share (all j's are back to front):

    The jet to the moon
    P1 Wunz There waz a jet iT Had guNs onsidedyside
    P2 The jeT faud a sSPace ship The mans pressed The righT buTTon a beaN shot out
    P3 BuT The beaN missed The oTher space ship
    P4 (blank)
    P5 (blank)
    P6 (blank)
    P7 The End

    No pictures.

    Loosely based on a book he read for school.


  17. @MultipleMum - he's a genius! I love the beans. :-)

  18. I think he had to go glean some strength and wisdom from Alla Hoo Hoo. Or at least recruit some of her children to fight on his side.

  19. Maybe his opponent was a pretty princess or fabulous fire breathing dragon and the night didn't want to slay her/it or get melted?
    Little kids have fantastic imaginations don't they?

  20. @River - I like your thinking. He assures me there will be more action. Seems to think that he night was just nipping off to change his outfit. The mind boggles.

  21. Oh geez, I love this sort of stuff. I'm such a sentimental freak - I cry with pride when my teenagers string a sentence together.
    I wrote about Bailey's monologue for drama performance on my blog recently. The auditorium was so deathly silent when he read it that I'm sure everyone could hear me blubbering - just can't help myself.
    Honestly, when they can make us feel that much - why wouldn't you have 9?? #justsayin


Thanks for popping by the Fibro. I love to hear from you!
