@phyrry I feel the quality of my work has gone down since Page 1 ... the harder the plot is becoming to communicate, the less I feel my writing skill is holding up. I was really proud of the pages I was putting out at the beginning ... now I'm struggling to complete scenes and it's taking me weeks to do so. In the end I'm not as happy with them ... not like when I first started and I really had a handle on things.
@phyrry That's such a wonderful way of putting that and I wish I could believe it. LOL. Any skill I'm gaining is just really accepting that I have major limitations when it comes to writing ... ones I couldn't have imagined until I actually started writing.
As my novel hits near 200 pages, it's becoming clear to me how long it's going to end up being and also how much more complicated it's becoming.
Dreaming, outlining, planning for years is only one part of the process. Now that I'm finally #writing, the reality of the scope and complexity is really hitting me.
My skills are limited and as the characters and situations grow more detailed, it's taking longer and longer for me to produce pages that I really feel are "good" or even "enjoyable".
@Troim Sorry. My book really isn't meant to be shared with anyone. It's for me to complete for my own personal reasons.
Long before #GeorgeTakei braved new frontiers in #StarTrek, he woke up as a 4 year old boy to find his own birth country at war with his father’s—and their entire family forced from their home into an uncertain future. In a stunning graphic memoir, Takei revisits his haunting childhood in American concentration camps, as one of over 100,000 Japanese Americans imprisoned by the U.S. government during #WWII. A gripping tale of courage, country, loyalty, and love.
"For so long, Hollywood and the people who have defined storytelling in America, have defined it as stories to be told for and by white people. We take for granted how much representation means to human beings."

@fukurouyoujo Oh you know ... they be crazy.
@fukurouyoujo Hello and welcome!!
A man screaming "You die!" burst into an #anime production studio in Kyoto and set it on fire on Thursday, authorities said, leaving at least 23 people confirmed or presumed dead.
The fire was the worst mass killing in Japan since a man stabbed and killed 19 people at an assisted living facility in western Tokyo in 2016.
@alpine_thistle lol not when you use watermelon vodka 😜
@alpine_thistle I do moscow mules when it's hot like that :)
@alpine_thistle But they had Tolkien so ......
I finally completed the scene I've been working on since July 4th EXCEPT for one weird gap at the beginning ... it's making me insane.
My character believes she's dying and just as she's kind of willing to succumb to this she sees this white hand (she's had visions of it before) reaching for her ...
It's this weird moment of "omg I'm dying" to "oh look a white hand" ... and the transition is too abrupt. I need some kind of segue between these moments. I'm just all written out for the day ...
@alpine_thistle I feel this word usage may have a few problems ..... LOL 🤣
Me #writing today ...
