That's what he last told me.

Okay, so that last post wasn't my last...

But listen, I did move to http://iklore.wordpress.com. There is something I wanted to warn you about.

I know it's simple to hotlink images here and there, and there's not stopping it, but there is a code someone developed that takes any images you've posted on your LiveJournal and relays their BBC and HTML coding as if the site itself was an image stock site. This page is: http://cheater.ru/pics/ljimages/

I should be content that they do give a link back to the post they've stolen your image from, but it does bother me they promote hotlinking (which, I suppose is entirely better than the site manager reposting your image without any trace back to you, right?).

But as I've mentioned, it's any images you've posted on LiveJournal, so that includes the images you posted from Photobucket, Flickr, and even from main domains. Fortunately, it's the last 20 posts with pictures that are shown, but you still can't be too careful.

So with that said, I'm deleting the images from my album here, since I've uploaded my images onto the LiveJournal scrapbook. If you'd like to find them again, you can find them in the same posts on my WordPress.

See you there!

Axel did not come from K'.

Switching service.

Moving to http://iklore.wordpress.com.

I'm still going to keep this account open; I use it to write the blog story on http://re-faction.livejournal.com/, if ever we get out of hiatus.

Maybe.. just maybe, I might return back here. I like using my icons, especially this one with K' from the King of Fighters. He looks a lot like Axel.

Now this is exciting.

"iwl.me"

Although it's only the thirteenth day, I couldn't resist having my full document text tested.

I write like
Raymond Chandler

I Write Like by Mémoires, journal software. Analyze your writing!


I've finished eight chapters and 18,614/21666 words. In order to catch up tomorrow, I'll need to write up 4,400 words. I also have many, many, many plot holes, but I'll fix those up in my second draft... after I get this one done.

Sharing empathy with your characters?

 I've been busy finally actually doing NaNoWriMo for the first time. It's tough, and I do run out of ideas and energy as I make up some of the plot as I go, but I am proud of myself for attempting to keep up with the 1667 word goal per day. Unfortunately, the only times I made the day's goal was twice in ten days, but I consider currently being at 15,373/16,666¹ words is pretty good for a lazy person like myself.²

 What I wasn't expecting today, after writing a difficult scene of killing off a character, was feeling the terrible emotion of putting my characters through a high tension scene and having it end horribly. I don't know whether to consider it a good thing I'm this involved or attached to my story. It's helpful, since you'll be aware of what kind of atmosphere you'd want for the scene (and putting it into words), but it makes me wonder whether I'm losing my mind for having emotion for something fictitious. 

-----------------------------
¹ Actually, November 11's word count should be 18,333, but I haven't slept yet, so I don't consider it as the day's goal total.

² What prevented me from working on it in the first place was that I enjoyed daydreaming about it more than writing it down or drawing it.

That's what he last told me.

Courage.

I know it's been a while since I've posted. I promised that new website, which turned out bust since I wanted to design a new one straight after, causing me to abandon my current one. But I read something I absolutely adore.

It's from September 22, 2010, regarding the new Devil May Cry game; the one which Capcom and Ninja Theory collaborated on, and the one with a dark-haired, serious character who introduces himself as Dante by the end of the trailer. Anyway, there was a quote from something I read, written by Simon Priest at StrategyInformer.

"And we went, 'No guys, go back to first principles and really do something,' and they went about 25-percent more down the field. And we're like, 'No, seriously! Do something that you think would make us angry with you,' and that's when we started making progress."^1

I absolutely adore that. Sure, it enraged a few fans of the game, but making the jump took guts. It's never a bad thing to have courage.

I'll be needing some if I want to make it somewhere in the published world, since from what A.R. Flynn and many other accomplished writers and agents in the world, it will require a great deal when submitting manuscripts. There will be several rejections, so I'll prepare myself for at least twenty.
