Woah, internet, dudes... I have... leveled up so much in my writing skills since the last update... like... actually sitting down, trying to understand new concepts in writing, and actually doing the homework in the book. I feel like I've leveled up from LV13 in writing, to at least level LV27 (on the pokemon scale). You'll be noticing my newer works will now have a better emotional impact. I mean, Donald Maass's book "The Emotional Craft of Fiction" has given me so much more technique insight than any developmental editor so I've had so far (not to say I didn't learn from them; just I didn't learn as much). So the last short story in the "Chase" series - "Cyan Chase" - literally has passages that are mostly created from that book. It is night and day compared to the dreary thing I was imagining to this awesome thing I've created. It was difficult as all heck too, because like I said, the concepts in that book were so above my level...
Man... I haven't flexed my brain this hard in so long... Anyways, I thought I would share this with you guys. I'm just really happy I got the breakthrough book I was looking for (plus the pulp-fiction class I took before). I'll be revising all my current drafts to have more of those emotional moments from that book I read.
As for updates, I've noticed a lot of traffic to the website. Seems like there is some excitement for the next short story. Due to your interest, I'll make sure that it is released this month.
That's all for now. Will have another update in a few days.
