New Blog

I have a new blog. It's called The Ink and Pixel Club. I will be posting a bunch of essays about animation there. You should check it out, as it's very unlikely I'm going to be posting anything here again.

Last of the Writing

"The Lost History of Sathyriel" is finished, for the time being, as I still plan to go back and edit it quite a bit. It's over at StormWyvern Press, but you knew that already.

Holy Crap, More Writing?

Part Seven of "The Lost History of Sathyriel" is up on StormWyvern Press. This is the first time I've been into the writing enough not to even bother putting on my recently compiled playlist of instrumental music. The ending should be coming early next week, if not sooner.

Thoughts on the Writing.

No new "Lost History of Sathyriel" today as I wrote another partial section. But I figured I'd get down a few of y thought on how the writing is going.

I've been writing pretty regularly every weekday for I guess the past two weeks. The story is now about 37 pages long and over 13,000 words. I recently started checking how many word I write per day. I did about 800 on the previous two days and nearly 1,200 today due to a particularly long piece of dialogue.

As I said in the StormWyvern Press comments, I'm enjoying writing something where I'm certain of the ending but not all of the stops along the way. The conversation I'm writing now has to hit a couple of key points, but I'm not entirely sure how it will end or what else they might talk about on the way. I'm not sure, but I think knowing that I'll be writing every day makes me less anxious about getting through sections like this, since I know I'll be writing more tomorrow rather than waiting days before returning to it.

The one real problem is that I'm starting to worry about what I'm going to write after "Lost History" is done. Unlike "The Last Battle", the end is very much in sight. Continuing "Last Battle" may be an option, but I'm not sure it's what I want to do. I just hope I can find something that holds my interest; I want to keep this momentum going.

Workin' on a Mystery

I did work more on "Lost History of Sathyriel" today, but I don't think it's enough to post yet. So instead, here's something fun I did yesterday.

I have a brief but strong memory from my childhood of seeing the video for Tom Petty and the Haertbreakers' "Runnin' Down a Dream". I remembered that it was animated and probably black and white, but not much else. So yesterday, I popped onto YouTube to see I could find it. Not only did I locate the video, but I discovered that it was a total homage to Winsor McKay's "Little Nemo in Slumberland"! Awesome!
