Journal
WRITING: PACING ISSUES: Fireworks!
I'm a huge fan of the adventure genre. I want my badass heroes. I want my damsels in distress. I want to get cornered in the final dungeon,  slammed in the chest by a ten foot tentacle and then come back from the cliff of defeat to murder everything and claim my treasure. Yet, I find frighteningly few writers who will feed these desires without a fifty-page exposition of their characters thoughts and feelings and flashbacks. The meandering, ugly pace of these stories is frustrating, especially as an editor that actually has to sift through that garbage. I'm oft overwhelmed by the temptation to throw a manuscript on the ground instead of wasting my precious red ink.
Thus I'm tempted to agree with my colleague http://fav.me/d4f458d that pacing issues are primarily solved by axing passages about boring stuff and covering fun stuff instead. "Pacing is not about how you write, it's about what you write about," he advises. Sure, why not? Nobody wants to write about boring things.

Heyo, I came here from Ryusuta's post a while back, and after reading through CharCole for the past few days, I wanted to tell you how great it is. I love the story and the characters especially, they are very believable to me.

Just finished reading through the entirety of half-hearted. It ended really suddenly, from the perspective of a person reading the archive in one go. I very much appreciate the courage to formally end it when you were done with it though. After reading through a few of the ooc questions you answered, I'm satisfied. Maybe compile the answers on where the story was going to go and put them in the story archive, for the sake of readers who stumble across the blog in the future?

I'm going to say something a little sappy here now, but it's your fault : P! I was just reading half-hearted after all, and that AU is packed with good feelings.

Thank you for the time you put into half-hearted. It was a good read and it had a very unique feeling to it. Reading it made me feel inspired, and I can't think of any feeling I like more than inspiration.

Thank you for reading :) I'm happy it touched you in an inspiring way, and I can't say there's anything more rewarding than inspiring someone else, especially when your own runs out.

Hey, thanks for letting me do my own AU based on Half Hearted and Underswap. I'm going to try and get a thing setup somewhere, I should have it up by tomorrow! I have a HUGE amount of freetime starting about half an hour ago, with nobody to interrupt me!

Hey Kyrio. I also happened to find Half Hearted Dreamers. I have to say though I think I prefer Char-Cole... just read all of it in one go and I want MOAR! I love your art style. I think your a terrific Artist and I look forward to more of both.


PS. Also you haven't updated the comic site with the 2 new pages on here... 327 and 328. Can't wait for 329 and 330!
