  2. Campaign: The War For Mortane Prologue

    is finished. Here’s the prologue. Sequel to Immunda and Rationis

    My attempt at forcing myself to write sex scenes and confront my weakness head on.

    Porn with plot.

      Plot with porn’s always good.  I tried to write porn without Plot, but Plot whined and forced its way in like a stray puppy.

    I’ll be gone for a few days. I got muscled out of my deli job by the GM under the “restructuring” and other excuses it went from family operated to soulless business right quick. So rather than have the manager look for an excuse to fire me since he fired a bunch of people on Xmas I resigned. A right to work state sucks.


    I’ll be back so <3

      Hey, sorry it went like that but I hope you can get another job soon.

      I’ve got a this and that out with the old to catch up on, just been a little busy! (the mortuus orbis review I did was basically already written as I’ve sent feedback to IBD already! :) )

  9. Finally finished Grand Inquisition after gods know how long. Hahah.

  10. Writer question.

    Has anyone gotten a little anxious about chapter length? Is it too long or not long enough?

    How do you know when its the perfect length?

      This is one of those questions that plague writers everywhere. Readers struggle with it as well.

      There is a school of thought that chapters work at anywhere from 3-5k words per chapter. Any longer, and it’s hard to find a stopping point, since most readers don’t have the luxury of reading a book through in one sitting. Any shorter, and you hit the same problem people have with flash fiction in general: how do you convey sufficient information to hold the reader’s attention and make them want to read the next chapter?

      Personally, I like 4-5k words per chapter. That’s my comfort level as a writer. As a reader, as long as you hold my attention, I’ll keep reading. I’ve stayed up half the night to finish a particularly engrossing book. :lol:

      As the faatus who assembled that 100k+ chapter way earlier, I thought it a point of pride at the the time when I had consolidated a whole bunch of smaller chapters into that mega chapter during a rewrite.  However, with a lot more experience under my belt, I’ve since realized it’s “a wall of text”, and it sort of trivializes any particular scene in the chapter when it’s as about long as JKR’s entire third book (not to mention there was *no* separation between scenes so it was all kinda “squashed” together).  An additional drawback to those writing 100k+ chapters on is that its word counter caps the per-chapter count to 65k for the story’s total word count.

      I never used to really think about it, but when I re-did a couple of my old stories I did split them into chapters rather than large massive oneshots. Seemed easier to read!

  11. Rationis Completed :D

    Next Up Grand Inquisition. :happykitten:

  12. Latest Addition to the Holiday Canon <3

  15. Describing technical weapons is surprisingly complex when the characters are all technologically pre-Renaissance level. Lotr meeting scifi.

    Sorta like Fire Emblem Three houses. Or Gate


  16. The level of rage when you’re writing in the zone and some fricking idiot on their phone smashes into a transformer and takes out the  power of three blocks is just :pissed::bat::wwe::wwe:

    Now the powers out and the groove is gone.

  17. Amazing! <3
