Good Noon-time to Ya from PHILADELPHIA!!!!!
SO HERE WE ARE IN THE MONTH OF MAY!!!!!!
Hope everybody is doing well and feeling good! I've of course been working on WE3 and dealing with the day-to-day of the new dayjob.
Payroll problems have been a problem since day-1, but!?
The new dayjob is still far better than the old dayjob.
With all of that typed!?
I'm still working on the tabs for the WE3 Webshop.
I'm also typing up bios for the characters so that things go smoothly as I am typing. FOR THE RECORD the first 3-stories are actually DONE!
For the Prince-Priest storyline.
I'm still fleshing out the language and I need to get the world-map finished.
I've also been looking at finally using My Youtube Channel for WE3.
There is a LOT MORE going on and a LOT MORE that I want to talk about, but good sense is telling Me to simply keep quiet for the moment. I'll unveil these topics and issues throughout this month. I wanna say Thank You to everybody who visits Me here and reads My Work. I wanna push forward at a heartier-pace and I know that Patreon is my best option for that. But daily-living stresses keep My Mind preoccupied and off of mapping out a proper perks system FOR WHAT I FEEL WOULD BE THE BEST TIER REWARDS I CAN GIVE.
I've had a lot of people coming to Me and finally admitting that they now see from ESTABLISHED AUTHORS AND SUCH.
How hard and TIME-CONSUMING the Creative Process TRULY IS.
Game of Thrones Fans are right now experiencing this FACT.
As the Battle of Winterfell and the Nightking have turned in annnnnnnnnnn...?
Where the reality is...?
Game of Thrones is no longer following the Books and George RR Martin is NO LONGER DIRECTLY INPUTTING ANYTHING. Thus leading to what has happened.
Star Wars is in the same boat. But in a DIFFERENT WAY.
Harry Potter's prequels are screwing up the originals and the movies have been a shitshow, where once again.
Not having an ESTABLISHED TIMELINE WITH REAL FLESHED OUT DETAILS BY THE CREATOR LEADS TO PROBLEMS WHEN TRYING TO DOUBLE-BACK!
To eras and areas that were merely clips and quips in the ORIGINAL WORKS.
But are now CENTER-STAGE, where the Creator didn't actually have anything done EXCEPT FOR quips and clips meant to make the Original Works enticing and exciting.
I have APPRECIATED.
People approaching Me in the Real World and admitting that it is a painstaking task in CREATING AND ACTUAL WORLD MEANT TO DRAW READERS IN. Where the Rules and Regs of HOW THINGS WORK AND WHY. THE HISTORY OF THIS PLACE. MAKING SURE SHIT PROPERLY CONNECTS!?
Right now Marvel is starting to see fans realize that Avengers Endgame was NOT EXACTLY as "great" as They'd thought upon first-viewing. And that's because IT WASN'T. And that is because it relies on THE VIEWERS ALLOWING NOSTALGIA TO OVERRIDE THE FACT THAT WHAT THEY ARE WATCHING IS THE WRITERS REALIZING THEY WROTE THEMSELVES RIGHT OFF A CLIFF!!!!!!
And they can't figure out how to PROPERLY SURVIVE THE FALL TO CERTAIN DEATH!
Where they aren't gonna get the Soul-stone afterwards....
I'm working to AVOID THAT, as best as possible. And so it takes time. Never mind My New Dayjob eats up A LOT of Time and is physically demanding most of the time. Fun Fact is that with the Nature of what I am doing I can't cut corners or cook up SOME INVENTIVE INNOVATIVE WAY to move faster than I am.
Bad health doesn't help, by the Way.
It's something I hint at from time-to-time but don't really type about. But it has been a critical-factor in all of this. And I appreciate My Youngest Brother, WHO HAS REALLY BAD HEALTH, kidney-transplant and born at birth diabetic.
Really reminding Me when I get angry and frustrated WITH MYSELF FOR NOT BEING ABLE TO WORK FASTER!!!!!!
He reminds Me and actually SHOWS ME;
1) You do the character designs YOURSELF.
2) You then ink and color Them YOURSELF, PRIMARILY BY HAND!
3) You do the history and concepts.
4) Made A LANGUAGE! Made LANGUAGES...! And all the little phrases and everyday colloquialisms with those.
5) Type historical-backstory and lore.
6) Write and type the actual stories for the Readers while KNOWING what is what regarding how things GOT TO WHERE THEY ARE within the story.
7) Edit Yourself.
8) While taking care of 9-to-5 dayjobs that dominate MOST of the day.
9) With shitty health.
I appreciate the Fact that He tells Me these things from time-to-time to REMIND ME that I'm NOT slacking off or fucking around, where I often will say or think or feel that I am, even as I LITERALLY FINISH DRAWING new artwork. Color OLD ARTWORK, thus finally finishing it too. Type up 3-4 pages of story. 1-2 pages of history-backstory. Work Full-time at My Dayjob and get about 4-5 hours of sleep per weekday. With questionable health.
Trust Me I'm NOT trying to get 4-5 hours of sleep per workday-during-the-week, but!?
Time to HONESTLY WORK has to be gotten WHERE I CAN GET IT!
However running Myself INTO THE GROUND DOESN'T HELP EITHER, case in point?
I SLEPT ALL DAY.
Because I HAD TO.
My Body LITERALLY had reached its limits and I HAD TO SLEEP for the entire Saturday. I'm not exactly happy about that but I understand that I'd BETTER DO THAT or else I'm gonna have SERIOUS PROBLEMS. Even as I'm typing this I still have to finish INKING THIS DRAWING;
Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd, this one;
And they WILL GET DONE!
I just have to ACCEPT that I DO WHAT I CAN WHEN I CAN.
And stop holding Myself to the lie that I should already BE DONE or HAVE IT DONE!!!!!!
When I DO NOT CONTROL HOW I SPEND THE MAJORITY OF MY TIME.....
The Creator's Corner
Is where I will give generalized updates!
