Alex is embarrassed. I like to lean into my embarrassment, OK?

Maisie — Narration

Ch 1: A First Draft

Things are busy in Grapefruit Land, so I’ll have to break this into parts. Here is the first Chapter of the Maisie script (for an animation with voiceover). The plan is for me to record the narration and maybe add some musical sound effects at some point when my body remembers how to musician (it’s been a while). Why am I doing it all myself? To learn stuff! To try stuff. I dunno. Make up your own reasons.

THIS IS MAISIE
SAY HELLO, MAISIE
MAISIE WAS A CLEVER GIRL. HER SMILE WAS BIG AND BRIGHT. HER EYES ALWAYS SPARKLED. BUT SOMETHING WASN’T RIGHT. YOU SEE, MAISIE FELT SOMETHING WAS MISSING: HER WORLD WAS SO PALE AND WHITE. SHE NEVER SAW ANY RAINBOWS. (SHE WATCHED FOR THEM EVERY NIGHT.) THEN, ONE DAY, MAISIE SPIED A NEW SHAPE IN THE CORNER OF HER EYE. A BRILLIANT COLOUR FLOATED TOWARDS HER OUT OF THE MILKY SKY. IS THAT A RAINBOW? SHE WONDERED. NO, SILLY BILLY, SAID I. THAT’S A LITTLE GREEN HEART SLOWLY DRIFTING BY.

OMG I added audio you guise … Verily I say unto you: “I am packing my dacks right now!”
