Happy Sunday, everyone! Hope you all had a good, productive week. My week was moderately productive, though not nearly as productive as OhMario, my fellow amateur web novelist, who managed to produce chapters for all three of his current writing projects. (Sure, they’re thematically linked with characters shared between them, but that’s still three different titles. I’m impressed, anyway. 😉 )
As for myself, well… I got the requisite chapter of The Anubai Hero done, anyway. I was thinking about the story a bit — as in, what I had already written, not what I intend for the future — and I realized that I really haven’t made any effort to integrate any of the various plot threads together until now, especially when it comes to the supposed main character. Gan Zhu met Sun Lan exactly once, never interacted with Tai Mei, and barely spoke to Mien Bi’er. He never had any onscreen interaction with Dolgo Mehek, never met the Weaver, and has no interaction with anyone from either the Red Reaver Sect or the Green Wildness Sect.
Partially, this is because most of those plot lines came out when I expanded on originally throw-away characters and elements; but mostly, he’s just been experiencing a completely different story from everyone else. Which was kind of the initial idea, of course; but I’m a little surprised how it all played out. In any event, he’s about to crash back into the rest of the story — and I do mean crash — and even I don’t know how it’s all going to turn out. Which is cool. I think. ^^;
I also tried started writing a new project, but bounced off the very first paragraph. I managed to get a bit further by switching to first person… but still, slow going. Might have to rethink that one.
Well. There is one other thing I managed to get done:
As it turns out, it takes me a long time to put up a video, so don’t expect me to update my channel too often. But I’ve got a Let’s Play series in the works… though I’m keeping the game a secret until I can release the whole series serially. I’m not against creating more MHW videos, though, so if my weird stream-of-consciousness style appeals to you, just let me know. 😉
Anyway, I hope y’all have a good week. New Anubai on Friday.
