Sorry that I have been so darn quiet of late but between my 10-11 hour work days and trying to memorize CoH by playing it before it disappears I have not had as much time as I would have liked for writing. I am currently doing a once-over polishing up of what I have written so far of Ripple and shall post it in a single page once its done rather than the nested menu mess I have up there currently. In the meantime, I will simply post a work by Hemingway that is considered to be one of the best short stories every written (and obviously is the shortest short story ever):
For Sale: Baby shoes, never worn.
And to state the obvious pun… that story is pregnant with meaning *ba-dum tish*.
Well, this part took wayyyy too damn long to write but I was having a tough time getting a consistent tone. I thought writing the villain side would be easier but I am just not very good at thinking in Evil ;).
For those that are following along, I do have another piece of Ripple on the Still Waters of Time in the works. This long weekend was a total write-off due to familial obligations but hopefully I will have more up by the end of the week.
PS: I realize now that I missed a spot, so if you haven’t already, don’t read the last part because the next part will be inserted right before Part 5.
Well, it’s more mythology-building this time around but I hope you like it. I had this written a couple weeks back but I just didn’t have the tone quite correct so I left it. Now I go back today and read it and find that it sounds good enough to post with a few minor tweaks. I guess my creative equation so far is:
PASSION + TIME = PROGRESS
Wow, now that I spell it out that seems bloody obvious *facepalm*.
PS: I nested the parts so now it isn’t so confusing on the webpage. Let me know if that works okay.
For those of you wondering what’s taking me so long to get the next part of Ripple posted, I give you these 3 excuses:
1) This next part is proving to be more difficult to write than I expected. I know what I want to say and it adds what I think is a cool piece to the puzzle/mythology of the story but… finding the right tone is proving to be difficult. I am trying to tone down my attempts at humor since its a serious topic and thus I had to scrap about half of it and I am in the process of rewriting it now.
2) Diablo 3
3) Diablo 3
Seriously, I have a love/hate relationship with Blizzard. They make the greatest games (well except for WoW) but damn they are a sucking void for my free time and my creativity. This Diablo 3 infection should die down soon enough with proper bed-rest and plenty of fluids though.
PS: I find it rather goofy that the spellchecker keeps red-lining Diablo. Its a freaking proper name dammit!
Just like a balloon, our cast expands…
I never realized how positive reinforcement ups my creativity before so here is the 3rd part a bit earlier than I initially intended. And unlike Lost, I give you answers. Well at least an explanation of sorts…
