First, I still can't submit anything. I can now upload to stash, but then I'm locked out of editing the deviation. Will I submit a bug report? Maybe. But I've been trained by many years of being ignored, especially harassment being ignored...that I probably won't. No offense to any hardworking employee(s) who read this. I don't feel like there's a point to trying. So again, keep up on my art tumblr, lunaticstart.tumblr. YEAH!
NEXT, NANO APPROACHES.
I failed nano last year, tried a couple more rewrites of the wip named "train hobo story," and nothing panned out. It's just some lame art block, that's for sure. I've been thinking about how I write, and I do tend to stick to a couple favorite themes and character types. I like change as a theme. I like possession, especially demonic possession! Souls being devoured, assimilated, otherwise reworked... yeah! I like writing huge assholes that have secret good hearts. I like strong gals with large weapons. I just all these same things in a blender when I write something. When I follow my formula, I enjoy it! So the last couple years, after TDST... I tried to branch out. BUT. Trying to be different has brought me NO JOY!
I suppose it boils down to this... I'm tired of not writing so I'm going to write the most generic, contrived and cheesy space opera. Again. ((The real challenge therein will be NOT writing Darcy and Toric in different skins). It will be horrible but I think it's the best chance of me getting nano done.
But here's my question to you all... is it wrong to just stick with the same damn thing? Is it a sign of weakness? Do you guys have a couple themes and character types that you ALWAYS include? Am I going to writer hell!? DO THEY HAVE COOKIES? Okay, insert discussion here...
