hey friends! i’ve been thinking about this for a little while and it’s been … two and a half months since my requests have been open? some of the prompts in my askbox are honestly just stressing me out because nothing will come to me, especially for scenario prompts (headcanons are always easier!). i’m probably going to delete some asks from my box just to stop myself being so overwhelmed, if i end up deleting one of yours, i promise it’s nothing to do with me hating the idea or hating you or anything! sometimes inspiration just doesn’t strike, and it sucks, but i guess that’s just the way of things. feel free to request something similar when asks do open again!
eta: this totally doesnt apply to any prompts sent for fs/gangbang/etc series! those are on the backburner partly because i cant write LOTS OF THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AGAIN without it getting predictable, but they’ll be gotten to!
Listen y’all, writing fan fiction is like preparing a cake mix from a box. Most of the work has been done for you. All you have to do is add a few extra ingredients and pop it in the oven. If you’re feeling daring, you can swap out the water in the instructions for milk, or add a sprinkle of something extra to make something unique out of it, and you can decorate the cake however you like, with whatever flavor frosting and sprinkles and extras you like.
Writing original fiction is like creating a cake from scratch. You need to make sure everything is the right temperature, that you have the right quantity of ingredients, that your ingredients work together harmoniously and there isn’t too much of one thing. You also won’t get it right the first time. You may finish your cake and taste it and realize you forgot the salt, or that it’d taste better with lemon zest, or that it needs more vanilla. You can decide the size of your cake and what kind of pan you’re going to bake it in. You give it to your friends (bakers and non-bakers alike) to try and they make their own suggestions on how to improve it, but ultimately it is your cake and you have the final say.
Today…I finished the layouts for chapter 5.
Thaz right my dudes…
I have finished drawing out this 50-page-long BEAST.
And I think it’s the chapter I’ve poured the most love into out of all of them, I even burst into tears several times while drawing the closing scene.
It’s a fun time, and I can’t wait to share it with you once we get through chapter 4.✨
I'm super sorry if it seems like I'm rushing you or being impatient, but there a few stories I love that you haven't updated in a long time, like Her Past or The Underswap Hunger Games. Are they discontinued? I just wanted to know. Again, sorry if it seems like I'm rushing you.
Hey no worries! I really want to get back to those comics as well, but they have been pushed aside until I can handle them again. When drinking ends (It’ll be first, and I think/hope in less than 20 pages) then I’ll work on either Hungerswap or Her past, or maybe both, just one page each a week.
When Babybones ends I’ll try updating 2 pages a week for both, Her past doesn’t have many pages left so once that ends I think I’ll either focus on finishing Hungerswap or Drifting (that one is so old and been waiting so long omg) and THEN I’ll start/finish other comics. (Like Monofell shenanigans and some shorts I’ve got sitting around)
It’s really hard to manage so many comics at once.. so I want to clean up the mess I made, then I can start new comics I’ve had planned :D.
Hhhh.. I’m really looking forward to all the foreshadowing!
