  1. If there's a lesson to be learnt when it comes to writing, it's this: do not try too hard to be original. It's much more important to settle on an involving narrative with interesting characters, rather than original ideas that might fall flat in execution.

      This has truly inspired me. It's about time I get down on my outstanding Sci-Fi dream project about androids, dreams, love, and the human condition: Blade Jogger.

  2. Are there any good resources for, say, a breach. A rather sizable hole in a wall?

  3. Gah. Sickness. I do not want to get down with it.

  4. At some point I really want to do a game revolving around the really annoying roadtrip genre of films, with their painfully formularic structure. (Guy and girl in relationship, girl dumps guy, guy's idiotic and misogynistic friend takes guy on road trip to forget about girlfriend and shenanigans ensue) But with the typical jrpg codes and conventions. One day.

      Sounds to me that you're one of a kind ;)

  7. I'm confident I could punch a shark wearing a bow tie.

      Would you be wearing the bow tie, or would the shark?

    3. Powtley


      The answer is yes.

      Can I be the bow tie?

  8. I love it when you re-write a particular scene and it turns out better than before, but hate it when the scene no longer flows with the subsequent scenes and more re-writing must be done :/

      And then he looked back at the start and knew he could do better!

      @Chaosian - yeah then after he died, someone copied his work and got millions out of it, which our generations now love with lots of fan base.

  9. Side quests, yay or nay?

      Only if they actually give you stuff for completing them.

      Why only side quests? Why not backwards quests and forwards quests and up quests and down quests? :3

      omg LOL that pun.

  10. After much soul searching, by climbing the highest mountain known to man and drinking from the fabled mountain dew, I have found my calling. I shall persevere with my project.

    My Prologue

    in hindsight, it's possible I'm being overly critical.

    My Prologue

    An interesting concept, but the quality is rather sporadic. When it comes to the description of certain events, such as "for on the way up he would surely be stuck full of arrows" the use of "stuck" seems a bit too informal and rather blunt, which is a bit jarring given the scene preceding it is of a much higher descriptive quality. Then you have instances like "Clouds seemed to pour out the heavens" bearing in mind that this is the first time the reader has witnessed this event, and the use of the word "seemed" makes the whole situation rather underwhelming, as if the clouds gave the impression of pouring out the heavens, but it wasn't actually the case. Honestly it is quite well written, but there are just some inconsistencies in quality that might stop someone from reading it in it's entirety.
  13. It's chimichanga time!

  14. So my laptop is on it's way out. The battery is done for, and the charger wire has to be in just the right position for it to turn on, a slight movement turns it off. I can't tell you how many times I've lost progress on my screenplay (for the game). Frustrating times >_<

      That's happened to me before on my old laptop. It was infuriating, to say the least. I used to have to duct tape my charger down in order to get it to work.

      My laptop harddrive is filling up with bad sectors and may fail soon. Of course soon may be as long as a few years or as soon as a few days.
