I'm deep in rewrites so there's only scribbly drawings to show right now. But this is where a lot of the necessary work happens.
Sometimes a certain action, repeated, becomes an anchor for a part of the story. I don't think of it when I first write - maybe because writing for me is a disembodied voice, and I don't think about what the rest of the body is doing until I have to draw. Apparently, my disembodied voice likes to smoke. A lot.
