I’m just going to drop this here and go to bed since my stomach hurts… Anyhow, welcome in 2021, not much has changed! Let’s finish the third chapter this year!

Okay, I’m all good now, please don’t worry!
So, the obligatory question – any new year resolutions or goals? I have plenty. I like setting those and then getting depressed by the end of the year heheheh But actually, I didn’t get sad this time around, I feel good about picking up writing for real and actually making some really good progress. In 2020 I have decided that I’ll become a better writer and I’ll do so by writing a book every tear until 2025 so five books in five years. Ambitious, when you’re working full-time, drawing a weekly webcomic, working on a visual novel, and trying not to stare at the computer screen 24/7 because you’re going blind already. I have managed to edit and send a novel I wrote a while ago to beta-readers and gotten some positive feedback, I wrote the story for the second chapter of Historia (look forward to it! coming in May 2021!) and drafted another novel. Pretty darn good! And all because I traded the work commute for writing – the only good thing about working from home and this whole pandemic business.
I’m determined to squeeze as much writing-goodness out of 2021 as possible too. I’m editing novel no. 1 at the moment (just a final polish after the beta-readers’ feedback) and plan to hunt for an agent or publish it in 2021 (probably in the second half of the year). I want to polish and send to some beta-readers novel no. 2 and draft another one. I already have some ideas, just need to start drafting the actual outline (yes, I’m an outliner, I like things neat and organized). And I don’t care if those will be crappy! I’m doing something, I’m learning, I’m getting feedback. In 10 books I’ll be awesome, I’m sure. And don’t worry, you’ll hear about whatever I publish for certain because no one else will even know that my books exist, you guys will be my only crowd 😀
So yes, I’m very excited about finally putting some time into what I’m passionate about. But that doesn’t mean I’ll ditch Replay, oh no. Comics is a difficult medium, I’ve been drawing Replay for 6 years and still have no idea what I’m doing, thank you for sticking with me for so long guys, I really appreciate it. Maybe I can get better at making comics too, one day, heh. The same with Historia – we’re working hard to make the second part happen and the third (last) one is in the making as well. This will be an exciting year for sure. But hopefully without any terrible surprises.
Sorry for babbling so much! As you can see I can blab about my projects for hours. See you guys next week, I’ll be trying to squeeze in another 40 minutes of editing before sleep. Cheers!
