Bonus Stuff: Works in Progress 1

Works in progress.
I’m just a girl, standing in front of her hobby, asking why i spend so much time on it.

Here’s a little peek at something I’m working on for a future chapter. Which chapter? Well, I’d tell you but…spoilers.

Making a trailer was so much fun and flexed creative muscles that I didn’t know I had. So of course, I’ve been trying to figure out how I can incorporate more multimedia stuff into my story because this thing lives on the internet so sky is the limit. Right?

Welp.

The limit is also my patience and sanity which are being SEVERELY tested.

I’m in awe of all the machinima creators out there. The shit is hard. But also rewarding, and my little ADHD brain is delighted by spending 34,954 hours trying to figure it out.

We’ll see how well this all comes together when it goes live…

    Oh, this is cool that you are branching out. I have watched a couple sims machinima and am always very impressed with how much work and creativity that goes into it. I would love to see a machinima that takes place in the universe you’ve created. šŸ™‚

      Thank you! hahah the learning curve for sims machinima is steep but Iā€™m enjoying learning a new skill. At least until I watch some pro who creates a whole movie and Iā€™m like: okay, Iā€™m a newborn in this market lol

    Aaahhhh!! I’m scrolling through new stuff and my jaw’s dropping at how many new readers you’ve gotten—is the multimedia branching finally going to get this the attention it deserves? But I’m also trying not to place my own selfish desire for more people to appreciate Zombie Deacon with above your sanity. That subtitle? Relating. Relating so hard. I’ve grown to appreciate your talent more and more as quarantine rolls on, but oh my damn does this stuff take energy. Like you’ve basically written an entire novel AND now things are moving? Damn damn double damn.

      Haha who knows?!?!?! I am glad to have readers who seem to be enjoying the ever-living heck out of my bizarro-world. On the one hand, I don’t want anyone to be disappointed because this a romance. But on the other hand, I don’t want people to think that doesn’t include supernatural creatures tearing each other limb from limb.

      I mean, this is how I felt when you were like: okay so now I’ll also do a comic. Like…with what time? But also what even is time? I think the pain and joy of this hobby is the opportunity to sink 23243782473927 hours into without realizing it (okay we realize it lol).

      Things are definitely moving. The rest of this scene is showing up in a chapter very soon. Like…next month soon šŸ™‚

        Yeah… the time sink is becoming a problem again, honestly. But luckily I can take a break after this next chapter. Dunno how it is for you, but I’m employed by someone who recognizes me as balls-to-the-wall eccentric and knows how important it is for me to use my creative chops to “regenerate sanity” along with my regular work. I mean, for someone sneaking heavy philosophy into their hobby writing, doesn’t this count as actively working on being well-rounded? Or as practice communicating science to the public? Or as therapy? Yeah? That’s what I tell myself, anyway.

        Would be cool if we had more of an audience for the effort we’re putting in, but I have grown to appreciate hiding from the general public. (Although you do have enough information to determine my identity.)
