Oh, Romi. Lol.

--

To be honest, I really am getting frustrated with how Skiagraphia is unfolding. It seemed like it diverted from where I originally wanted it to go. So after this chapter, I would probably recollect and re-evaluate this comic's progress. :(

Also, there is no end to my misery: it seems that the moments when I am struck with motivation and inspiration are during my time for school. Alas. Take this, for example: I've been binging on shoujo manga lately, and as much as I fancy the pretty boys in the genre, I am dismayed with a number of titles that present the heroine as someone who inspires you to bash your head on a table. Which brings me to this point: it makes me want to draw a shoujo manga myself, parodying a number of shoujo-manga tropes. Which brings me to this problem: the urge is strong (like the Resurrection-one-shot urge), but I HAVE SCHOOL ALAS.

So.

Some other time, maybe.

@archiloquy: lol Start a comic on the side. Doesn't need to update often, but it could be sort of a relief.

I know how hard Real Life can get, just take your time. I know you don't know me and I barely know you, but if you need a place to vent to, I'm always around. You can come and find me. I'm a good listener.

@Rumiel: lol the ironic thing about this is that Skiagraphia was created as a stress-reliever for Quickening, and now it's the one giving me stress. The OC in me compels me to follow a weekly update despite some obstacles. I guess I need to control my compulsion, haha.

But, by god, the urge to make a parodying comic has been nagging me for months, haha. I need to sketch some characters to blow off some steam.

You know, your words warm my heart; add your avatar into the mix, it makes your message more awesome.

@archiloquy: LOL I'm glad you feel that way. *smiles* And the offer will always be there.

But yea, as a fellow author, I know how that goes. I've been working on this one 4-book series for three years now, and I'm still not getting anywhere beyond chapter 6 and I need to turn around and redo the whole thing almost.

The idea had popped into my head like a lightbulb and I spent a year, alone, planning it all out. Then when NaNoWriMo hits, I go through a splurge and then I get writers' block.

@Merione: Ahahaha, before I'd be happy when someone says I am a shounen manga artist. Now ... I dunno, lol. I want to try different genres and styles. :D

Oh, come on. You know me. My attempt at a decent shoujo manga would end up being a ~*disa-a-aster*~

@Rumiel: Oh, man, Nanowrimo. I did that once, back in 2008. Pure mindless word vomit, but I did reach the word count. Though I will never do that again :O
