Now back to the script I was meant to be working on ...
A Song in His Heart
Script: David Tulloch
Art: Insert your name here?
The artwork can be as straight-forward as you like, or as off-beat as you like. The words tell the basic story in most panels, so the illustrating art can be more artistic than descriptive.
Text inside [ ] represent a single block of text. Most panels have more that one block.
[ He had a song in his heart. ]
[ It almost killed him. ]
[ After some reoccurring dizzy spells and passing out at the office he went to his doctor.]
[ The diagnosis was an irregular heartbeat. ]
[ The doctor had never heard anything like it before. ]
[ She recorded the heartbeat and put it on her iPod. ]
[ She couldn't stop listening to it. ]
[ Her ex-husband heard it and asked for it to be put on his iPod. ]
[ She researched how on the web, and in doing so found some file sharing sites. ]
[ She shared the file with the world. ]
[ At first no-one noticed. ]
[ She forgot about the shared file, but never stopped listening to her version. ]
[ She started dating her ex-husband again. ]
[ About the time they remarried there was a news item on TV about the heartbeat. ]
[ It had become a global internet phenomena. ]
[ Several artists recorded hit songs using it as a melody. ]
[ No-one sued over it. ]
[ The man whose heartbeat had started it all had gone through some tough times. ]
[ Medication had tamed his irregular heart. He had no more dizzy spells, but found it hard to sleep at night. ]
[ He had been fired from his job. They never told him it was because their health insurance company was worried he'd cost them too much money. ]
[ His marriage was on the rocks. ]
[ The weekly counseling sessions weren't helping. ]
[ Then he heard his old heartbeat on the radio. ]
[ There was a song in his heart again. ]
