Why are my chapter titles so long? (Episodes 13 & 14 release)

Someone needs to teach me how to pick titles for posts. Lol. But it’s true that my chapter titles can be long at times. For instance, today’s release are Episode 13. One Worth More Than This World and Episode 14. There’s a Limit to Everything. Long, right?

Those who have read Book 1, know what the title of episode 13 is referring to. Those who haven’t, well… Go read it! We all have something or someone we treasure a lot, and you may think that’s the theme of the episode, and while it is to some degree it’s not Tomoki who’s in centre of attention this time, but someone else.

Writing Update #3: Imagining & Picturing vs Conceptualising

I’ve noticed a lot of people have a difficult time to understand what it’s like to have aphantasia, which is something I have. Aphantasia is essentially the inability to voluntarily create images in your mind.

Essentially.

You can still make out some very vague images and have aphantasia. It’s as much as a spectrum as anything else.

I personally don’t have any images. No colours, no shapes, no memories. I can’t even recall images from my dreams and sometimes I end up wondering if I just don’t dream at all.

So I’ll let you in on a secret.

Beyond the Horizon is back! (Episodes 12 & 13 Release)

This is new for my followers here, and I know I would do sporadic updates, but well… Since I have this blog and I’m expanding to write about my own writing I might as well share my chapter introductions.

I’m, as always, wordy as hell. You should be used to it by now. Sorry, not sorry.

Writing Update #2: Oh, hey! I’ve been interviewed

A while ago Alan from Book Boost tweeted about being open for interviews in a thread I was mentioned in. I was a little slow, but to be fair, I was in the middle of Camp NaNoWriMo at the time.

Anyhow, I got interviewed about Beyond the Horizon! And, as anyone who follows my blog can guess, I was wordy as heck. I can write an essay about a sentence, I’m sure. Yet, this post will be a short one. Lol.

So! Here’s a link to the interview.

In other news: I’ll put up a page for Tea and Coffee next. It’s a side story novel to Beyond the Horizon, set a few years earlier, that focuses on Arata and Makoto who are side characters in BtH. It’s 100% BL/gay. You can read it here.

 

Writing Update #1

Alright! I’m here with a new series on my blog. One I know might not be appreciated by all. Why? I did a poll about whether to write about my writing, and it didn’t get overwhelming support. Or much support at all.

But I’ve been thinking. A lot. I’ve gone back and forth on it. But in the end, I decided to look at the tagline.

A collection of thoughts and polite rants on Literature and Visual Arts

As you see, I highlighted three words: “thoughts on Literature”. My work counts as literature. But! I will still write reviews, don’t worry! These posts might be sporadic, so there might not be some for months, or once every week for a few weeks. Continue reading
