Grim, True, Real

Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

Cyanide and Happiness, a daily webcomic

No pics ’cause I’ve been stuck doing gay an ass (read=NS) the past week and have been busy at home today.

So I give you… comics!

What separates a good writer from the rest?
If a reader were to casually pick up a book, read it for a minute or two and get drawn in by the story almost immediately, then that to me qualifies as a good author.

Many other factors come into play of course and simply having a strong prologue isn’t going to make it shine.

I’ve spent this week reading my book at a much slower pace than I usually do. Aside from visualizing the scenes to their full splendor, I’ve also taken notice of sentence structures, pacing, dialogue etc. When should you go into full detail and when should you make it brief? What do you keep from the reader and how would you set it up for a reveal later on?

I really was pleasantly surprised over how my recently purchased The Founding Omnibus by Dan Abnett turned out. I admit that I’ve been half-expecting a bad read, judging from earlier experiences of other game-based novels.

(All of a sudden Social Psychology lessons pop into mind, haha. Stereotype much?)

I’m well over halfway through with the book now and am very anxious to get my paws onto the next two omnibuses. Thing is I think I’m going to have to place an order for it.

And then there’s the thing with the 24 TV series. 50% off the second purchase? That means I could get seasons 1 and 2 together, followed by 3-4 and 5-6. Just nice.

I swear, this must be my natural talent.

I swear it was the coffee ;_;

Yup speaking of coffee, I’ve suddenly grown an affection for them. You know, it’s one of those things that grow on you. Like Handlebars. They tend to get really nice after long exposure to them.

I won’t be stepping into a Starbucks of Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf anytime soon though. I’m good with my choices at home. If I were to spend money in areas such as this (a luxury I do not have… yet) I’d rather be indulging myself in loose leaf tea. Much love.

I suppose this has to end eventually.
And no, wasn’t referring to my post but yeah, that too, lol.
