April is almost here, which means the spring session of Camp NaNoWriMo is coming back around. I participated once last year (was shooting for twice, but it didn’t happen), and had a pretty good idea that I was going to write again this year.
I seem to keep getting myself stuck on plot momentum for Runne, and due to feedback and some reader questions, I’ve decided to pick Shadows of Zot back up this April.
So, if all goes well, look for new Zot updates starting April/May!
Runne Feedback Needed
For those who read/have read my ongoing fiction, Runne, I need a little feedback.
Here’s my problem. I have a few years worth of Runne material written and ready to post. I’m really not kidding. I have a lot of stuff written.
I don’t post stuff because I struggle to get the chapter art done. I don’t want Runne to go artless, however. The design of the site is made to showcase chapter art, and it makes me sad to think there would be nothing on a chapter page. Plus, I just think it’s more exciting to see art with writing.
I’ve been trying to find a compromise, and here’s one thing I thought of.
Maybe I could draw artwork to represent the entire segment and use it for all the parts of that segment. So instead of having to draw, for example, 8 different pieces of art, I can draw just one for the entire expanse of segments.
Kinda like drawing cover art.
There still are chapters that I’d like to highlight by drawing individual pieces (because important things happen sometimes), but I’ll do that as I feel like it.
If I could consolidate art to just cover artwork per segment, I could easily hold down a weekly update schedule and get the site caught up to more current writing. That, in turn, would probably encourage me to write some more come fall!
