I hope you guys are doing okay and you stay safe. Japan has embraced Omikron, and for the first time we had 50k cases in the country. I’m vaccinated and everything, but it’s terrifying how quickly the virus has spread when everyone is still wearing masks, even on the street. I don’t know what to even wait for anymore. I want to go to Poland in May, but will it be fine then? Will I be able to come back to Japan afterward? It’s terrifying how quickly everything changes and how various travel restrictions can make one’s life miserable. And what does it even change, if Omikron is here already anyway? I’m not sure anymore.
Anyway, I’m still reading the Six of Crows and also some articles/books about creative writing. I never really read any writing theory except for Sanderson’s lectures (if that counts) so I’m filling in those gaps. And I gotta say, some of the things I’ve been doing intuitively, or conclusions I arrived to after trying and failing multiple times, those books explain quite nicely. So I’ll probably keep reading some of them for a while longer. It seems useful. Not just “write more and you’ll get better; practice makes perfect” but an actual analysis of what makes a good plot and why. Hopefully I’ll be able to put the newfound knowledge to use haha.
And for Replay, there will be 3 more illustrations and we’ll start the fourth chapter! Very exciting! I hope you guys will continue reading and supporting me with your encouragement and enthusiasm! This comic wouldn’t have gone this far without you 🙂 Thank you!
