I have my various reasons for not liking patreon, but seeing as they are still the biggest platform and I'm still fairly new and need more people to discover me, I finally decided to break down and get a patreon page.
@sdavidcasort I already have a subscribe star, have had one for a while. It just doesn't get as much traffic as patreon does though. I tried to avoid patreon for quite a while, thinking I could just make it on subscribestar, but I am going to be forced to go with my plan A of nursing school at the current rate if I don't start getting more donors.
Also, no, I did not typo there. I did mean that nursing school is my plan A and writing is my plan B. As in, I am going at nursing school with full intention for that to be my career path with writing being a fantasy perfect job I would like but am not counting on. I will only go with writing if I see good results from it before I manage to get accepted in the nursing program.
@sdavicasort Thanks for the good word. I'm pretty sure that would be the case. It would just mean I'll have a lot less time to write than I do now. (Especially for the period where I'm actively engaged in classes, which will likely involve zero opportunity to write at all.) Just keeping people informed. I have full intention to get into nursing school. It would take a huge showing before this fall to change that.
Key to the Void, the reboot of "Sister of a Goddess," is now up on the site. I've posted it with the first 3 chapters as well as a preface which essentially amounts to a version-differences explanation. (There will be a LOT different in the reboot from the very beginning. That's not marketing, that's just the way my brain works. I can't write the exact same story twice even if it's a reboot.)
Please check it out, I think it turned out rather well.
I have just posted a new collection. It is the first 2 chapters each of 3 different stories I have had rattling around in my head for a while now. I plan to write 2 of them, because I don't have time in my life to write all three.
Please check them out and vote on your favorite in the poll at the end. It will be a HUGE help.
He's sympathetic(due to his upbringing that I'll divulge later), like he was with Fate after the torture scene with Agatha. But will do anything he feels like doing unless directly commanded by Agatha not to do so.
I see. Well, what I'm saying is that's a character that's hard to follow and hard to believe due to people in the real world not really being like that. Or rather, the people who are really do not function in normal society and are usually institutionalized. My suggestions would allow for the exact same behaviors while being more believable.
That's rather common. Carefully considering character motivations and personalities, and whether or not there are real world equivalents to those behaviors, is a little on the advanced side. Your ability to craft a narrative is rather good, you just have to work on developing realistic motivations in the supporting cast a little more.
Just posted a chapter in my side series, "Jemini's guide to better writing." 2 Chapters released across in 2 different series on Christmas (Although 1 was written ahead of time, and released on server time Christmas instead of my own timezone's Christmas.)
Well, I feel better about going on hiatus right now. It looks like almost all of my other favorite series have gone on hiatus at almost exactly the same time, and I can only imagine it's for the exact same set of reasons. School nearing finals + family stuff for the approaching Holidays.
(Other people in the United States also dealing with Thanks Giving, which is just around the corner.)
Thanks Giving is over at the end of the month. Finals under the quarter system (The US uses both semester and quarter systems depending on the school.)
As for World Keeper, I find it pretty interesting. It's pretty exploratory of new concepts but meanders a bit, kinda like my own series. Definitely has a feel of throwing out a bunch of different ideas and trying to work them into a narrative, and a lot of those ideas are very interesting.
Overall assessment of World Keeper compared to my series, it is the most similar series on the entire site to my own due to the fact that it's just so expiramental and original, but also at the same time very very different from my own series in that it takes both the ideas thrown out and the characterization in a VERY different direction. Objectively, the two couldn't possibly be more different. However, you will get a small bit of a similar feel, like the two series are cousins or something.
Kinda on the abandoned side. I still have plans for it, but I have a lot of trouble right now just finding time for sister of a goddess between work and school. I'm not off it completely, but I don't see it being updated any time in the near future.
