Talk to the Author Bill Zimmerman
Bill Zimmerman has made it his life's work to create books, newspaper features and educational resources that help people of all ages find their writer's voice and express their deepest thoughts and feelings. Many users of MakeBeliefsComix.com have asked for more help in their writing. In response, the site offers a number of his pioneering writing prompts to help students communicate their ideas.
I envisioned MakeBeliefsComix.com as a place for you to come to and have fun by creating your own world of comic strips. My hope is that by giving you a choice of characters with different moods and the chance to write words and thoughts for them, you will tap into your creativity and explore new possibilities. After all, there is no greater force in life than the power of the imagination to free us from our immediate problems and to spur our energies to find solutions to our befuddlements.
MakeBeliefsComix is for people of all ages who like to play and explore. They include, for example, those wanting a few minutes of fun; youngsters and their parents; students and teachers; business executives trying to unwind from the stress of work, and activities directors and social workers who try to help people express their deepest thoughts and feelings. My intent is that you will regard this site as a safe place where you feel empowered to create and to test new ideas and ways to communicate through art and writing.
