November 21: Finally finally finished the next chapter for Charred Life after, hm, a month and a half? So happy it's doneeee QAQ Struggled with getting it out because I was worried about dialogue, pacing, chapter length and so on... which was solved by deciding to put everything I wanted to in the chapter and be over with it. Most likely will have to fix pacing and whatnot anyway later on. Included some interesting research of if old japanese houses had chimneys or not....

I just want to whip up the chapter that comes after this - a long awaited part for me. Hoping not to get burnout/block/frustration at the style of inconsistency :thumbsup:

Good luck Echo! Getting to those long awaited chapters can be stressful. I'm sure you'll do what's in your head justice!


November 22nd (and like, the last two weeks): I put together both a short story for the War Arc (which is the part that lasted the last few weeks), and I basted out a 1500 word short story this afternoon for the Christmas story topic that Vacant just posted! It's complete nonsense, but that's kinda the idea, so I'm happy with it. I definitely need to give it an edit or two before posting, but look forward to that! Not that it's Christmas time yet anyway. December or bust!

I'm hoping to start writing one-shot scripts soon, although I am working on a large manga collaboration project I'd still like to do my own stories on the side, so I'm sort of posting just to guilt trip myself into starting :P

I don't know if it will keep up, but I managed 30 minutes of writing.
In my own WIP obsessed way I'm working on writing short random chapter synopses, to first get used to writing a correct flow of events, and then I'll start taking those ideas and filling them out more. An exact as possible workflow to my art WIP method :P

Don't get too trapped in it Suuper. It's always best to actually get some writing on paper to see where the holes are. Things always turn out different from my the synopsis.

Meanwhile, after not getting much at all done during my vacation writing wise, I'm back on the horse and getting some forward progress on War Arc.

@Coryn ahh definitely no worries there, I hope. what I mean is just to loosen myself up and get used to expressing myself loosely first (even that is difficult!) and then get tighter and tighter with adding the detail. I'm not aiming at perfect plots or anything like that in the slightest, more like learning to just not be embarrassed about seeing my ideas written down I think ahaha :P In terms of sketches, it would be a super rough scribble.
Sort of just playing with plot points like children's building blocks at the moment, learning how to stack them and not have them fall over. I have a relatively solid plan of how I'll develop my writing ability so it's not me being tentative about writing, it's more a (very slow) controlled decent into the deep end :P And of course my own blend of learning methods unique to me :D

and sometimes you have to get away from it all on a vacation and just do nothing at all :P
I've been both very productive and not productive at all art-wise on holidays so there's benefits to both.
