    Call it brainstorming, prewriting, or jotting, this is what I usually do before I start writing. I think a lot better and faster with a pencil and a notebook than I do at the keyboard. Sometimes it's specific thoughts, other times it's free ideas. A lot of times I take a conversational tone with myself while taking notes.

    My handwriting is crap because I try to keep the pencil moving as fast as my brain, which doesn't work. By the way, if you're looking forward to my comic, Wounded Gods, don't look too closely at the page on the right or you'll see some spoilers. :)

      It's just a question, but, may I use your picture for a Blog post? I know it's CC licensed, but it's also with Getty Images, so...

      Mathias San Miguel Yes, you can use it in a blog post. CC license lets folks share in blogs, Tumblr, etc., but if they want to use it for commercial purposes they'll need to do the Getty thing.
