I lack originality in my titles.
I've been writing a script, plot, raw version, whatever you wanna call it. Of a sketch manga ment for a 4koma serie.
Well I've got enough material for a oneshot and/or first chapter, but I've got an issue.
At this point I don't quite yet wanna go look for an artist (Yes I lack the skills to draw) because I'm uncertain if the sketches/characters are good enough.
I've got no real unbiased people to who I could show my writings to, in order to get an opinion.
And since I'm still rather new here and the forums confuse me, I'm uncertain if there's a place I could post some of the writings I've done in order to get feedback.
If u want u could just post them here ^_^ Im sure someone will give you feedback this website has many supporters for new ideas so be open and maybe someone can help you
^^^^^ this or if you want you can email me/ firstname.lastname@example.org
Everyone here would be happy to look through it and help you out. If you don't want it to be public, you can also PM me or any of the other posters.
Mostly, though, you shouldn't worry about it. As an artist who has worked with writers a lot, I have never expected a writer to draw well. There is no reason for a writer to draw well. In fact, in manga and comics specifically, there's not even a reason for writers to write well, like, you don't need to know how to be descriptive and set the atmosphere and whatever. That's my job. All you need is literally to come up with the story and dialogue. The delivery of the story is the responsibility of the artist. You could be a great writer, great at descriptions, great at expressing things with words, but it's all irrelevant to manga. All you need is to be good at actually coming up with the story/characters, and the dialogue. That's all. Some of the best writers I've worked with wrote truly shittily and incomprehensibly, but once I understood their writing, I saw how brilliant the story was. This is an industry of ideas, above all, what matters is whether your creativity and talent are enough. Can you come up with good stuff? Yes? Good. Doesn't matter if your sketches look like shit.
Buuuuut anyway, there's really no problem if you have that much done. I say just go ahead and try and look for an artist! 4-koma stuff is easy to draw as well, so a lot of artists may be encouraged to take on it as a side project.

I used to be just a writer but a writer can become an artist if they really wish to as I did ^_^
