Well, it’s April now, and I haven’t had the chance to actually write much in the way of stories to put up here. I spent the other day, or at least a good four hours of it, learning Adobe Illustrator and putting together that comic for April Fools (if you haven’t seen it, you should check it out.)
Real life has been slightly busy, messing around with insurance and eye doctor’s appointments and stuff. Also job interviews- very interesting, but the lead up to them is nerve wracking. However, the worst thing is that the warmth is starting to creep up here, while I’m still hesitant to pull the wool blanket off my bed. I prefer winter.
HOWEVER… none of that matters to you all. I’m participating once again in Camp NaNoWriMo- you know; the event in which last year I wrote Wall of Trump. I’m trying my hand at a biographical fiction novel this time, called “The Tallboy.” I’ll try to explain the premise probably some time later when I have a better understanding personally of what I want the story to be about.
I had one last thought on my mind, something that popped in there today. I’ve been watching people play Breath of the Wild- The newest Legend of Zelda game- on Twitch.tv. Personally, I’m vicariously in love with this game through the streamers I get to watch, including the game’s story. I have an idea for a fan fiction based on it, as much as I hate to say so. Personally, even though I’ve barely read any fan fiction, I’ve always strayed away from it because I’ve always tended to think of it as a corruption of the source work. I’m sure there’s good stuff out there, but there’s probably just as many works that are poorly written, derogatory, and distasteful. But I love the world and characters of BotW so much, I feel as if I can’t help myself.
The biggest problem with this is that if I ever was to try and publish/monetize it under the Legend of Zelda name, Nintendo would be all over me with cease and desists. They love that stuff apparently. I guess I’ll see what it turns into.
I hate to bore with walls of text that aren’t story time, so here’s a cool album I discovered today to make up for it. Hope you like post rock!
