COMMUNITY NEWS: Amy Chu Writes About a Difficult Topic

Comics Experience Writing alum, Amy Chu, has released a comic book short story, titled Closure, which was written as part of a 9/11-related writing challenge on the Creators Workshop several months ago.

In a blog post, Writing About a Difficult Subject, Amy wrote:
I was surprised at how emotional I became during the writing process. During 9/11 I lived in lower Manhattan and watched the towers fall outside my window.

All I could think about at the time were the people in the building, and how my husband had turned down an offer from a firm on the 103rd floor, and ever since I have avoided revisiting the coverage of those events, especially around this time of year. So I suppose the title of this story “Closure” has meaning for me personally as well.
With story by Amy Chu, art by Silvio DB and lettering by Creators Workshop member E.T. Dollman, Closure is currently available on Amy's website, NerdyGal.com.

  1. Debuting this fall on , new supernatural teen soap Legacies continues the story of the iconic heroes and villains of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. Legacies follows the story of the next generation of supernatural beings at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. It's here that Klaus Mikaelson's daughter, 17 year old Hope Mikaelson (Danielle Rose Russell, The Originals), Alaric Saltzman's twins, Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) and Josie Saltzman (Kaylee Bryant, Criminal Minds) and other young adults including political scion MG and the mysterious Landon Kirby (Aria Shahghasemi) come of age in the most unconventional way possible, nurtured to be their best selves, in spite of their worst impulses..

    Coach Black And White Crossbody Bag, You try not to look at your points as a measure of success. Improved to 12 4 3 against the Canadiens, though he had help from his posts in the first period. Mike Reilly fired a slap shot off the iron just two minutes into the game, fooling even the goal light operator, before Karl Alzner hit the post later in the period..

    Respect for the military. Both men have deep respect for our men and women in uniform. Both focused on developing a holistic relationship with [them]. (Black And Tan Michael Kors Purse)The Eagles are young at cornerback, but they have more depth than they've had in years. Cornerback Rasul Douglashas been firmly entrenched with the second unit, but I thought he had a solid spring and has carried that over into camp. Jones played opposite Douglas on the outside on Thursday. (Michael Kors Black Tote Purse)

    Sexton can thank his array of dribble moves for putting defenders in tough positions. In some ways, his handle is reminiscent of Markelle Fultz in that he relies less on strict downhill explosion and more on deception. He even uses the same half spin hesitation move Fultz often went to at Washington. (Michael Kors Bag Black Friday Sale)
