Listen to Sequential Underground #21 right now:
Writing before the script!
Shawn likes to start with bits of dialogue or random plot ideas in his sketchbook. Seth makes lists and outlines with pen and paper before he hits the computer to type his script. Dan doesn’t really script at all — he dives right and works from brain to page. And Nick relies on Google Docs to help him maintain a mild organized chaos of ideas for his stories.
Ideally, Dan would like to do more traditional scripting. Seth is a big proponent of full script, while Shawn is a big proponent of working Marvel-style. Nick likes to work in a prose/script hybrid style (inspired by the Avengers: The Initiative scripts of Dan Slott).
