    Yeah, I started listening to it a few days ago.

    Yeah it's a trippy story.

    Well keep thinking positive and you'll find your groove eventually.

    I feel details come out more in revisions than the first draft. The first draft is just about getting the basic story structure figured out. Revisions are when you should placing in details

    It's why I try to keep my eyes on the big picture and not sweat the small stuff. Are you at least enthusiastic about the whole project?

    I think you're just being hard on yourself. I know I tend to doubt my ability to bring a story together, but that's what revisions are for. I often find just finishing the first draft is half the battle.

    I have the first draft of the first issue finished. I need to do a few more revisions before I send it to my artist though. Mostly because I had to feel my way in writing in a script format. I initially started in a DC style where you tell them how many panels and what happens in each panel, but eventually settled for a major paragraph description of the scene followed by the dialogue and a few more descriptions of action between, which is apparently closer to the Marvel script style. So I basically need to rewrite the first few pages in the later style and probably tighten up the dialogue. I've already started on the second part of the script and it's going a bit smoother since I already planned most of the story in my head.

    Between that, I've been jotting down little ideas for my Matsuno inspired story. Watching a fan video on Dark Souls involving a player beating the game with just a broken sword inspired me to create a captain type character who carries around a broken sword as a memento of one of his failures.

    So what's your writing roadblock?

    To be fair, I wasted a day and half before finally forcing myself to write this evening so I wouldn't feel guilty about wasting my days off.

    Well tonight was actually productive. I got most of the first issue of my comic script written up. I need to tighten up the early sections since I had not quite figured out the format I wanted to use. The last part should be easy to write since it's mostly a comedy bit that segues into the next two stories.

    After that, it's the task of prodding my artist to actually draw all of it since she can be flaky sometimes or only want to draw what she's in the mood for. I'm hoping the script will be good enough to have her start working on it immediately.

    I've also started my Political Medieval story I told you about last year.

    I find that's what usually happens with those types of stories.

Part of your world

by Fynn on 06-06-2017 at 05:37 PM
So there's this nagging issue I've had for quite some time now. It's a pretty abstract issue but one I think is pretty interesting and perhaps even important to share nonetheless. For many reasons, it has only become more pronounced recently.

As some of you may know, I want to be a writer. I try to do as much writing as I can. I even do writing for a living, though as an SEO copywriter, it's not exactly that I have an opportunity to spread my creative wings as part of what keeps giving

On FFVII (part of my Fmarathon rant)

by Fynn on 11-23-2016 at 12:16 PM
Decided this is worthy of being a blog-post, since it turned out to be a much bigger rant than I expected and I'm not sure the marathon's audience is really there for that kind of stuff

So far, I can say that

Frustrations of the writerly sort

by Fynn on 07-01-2016 at 12:13 PM
So there's this thing I've been struggling for quite some time. I don't want to call it a "writer's block" because it kind of seems like an excuse for being lazy. And it usually doesn't last long. This is something that's been eating at me for a long time.

I just kinda feel that I can't write anymore.

I mean, I still write articles for the site sometimes and I write other texts at my work, but it seems like, creatively, I've dried up. I'll come up with ideas

On story expectations

by Fynn on 03-30-2016 at 12:57 PM
So this is kind of a general discussion, but the general rant I have is based on three popular 3DS RPGs: Bravely Default, Fire Emblem: Awakening, and Shin Megami Tensei IV. Sorry if this is chaotic, as I'm just writing this as it comes into my mind. Also, spoilers from the three games abound.

All of those games were very well received, though for different reasons. SMT is kind of here to serve as a neutral ground, as the evaluation of its story is pretty divided, whereas the consensus

Character Appreciation: Junpei Iori

by Fynn on 03-30-2016 at 11:37 AM
This is in no way an idea I stole from Pumpkin, no siree.


Junpei Iori is a character from the Persona franchise. He first appears in Persona 3 and all of its subsequent releases as a playable party member. He becomes a social link character as well in the female path of Persona 3 Portable, though he isn't date-able. He is also playable in
