Re: How to Deal with Shame as a Writer?

Critique is only useful if the person on the receiving end understands the framework of whom they're being criticized by. It's why I can freely discard the opinion of someone like Roger Ebert when he says that games can never be art. He was too old and jaded to understand the medium, so his criticis...

Re: How to Deal with Shame as a Writer?

A few days ago, my university had a reading for a somewhat recent graduate who put out his second novel. Someone from the audience asked him was a similar question to the OP, and the author's advice really resounded with me. If you believe you have something worth saying, as all writers should, then...

Re: Good Endings without the 'Good' part?

I'd say it's way more important that the plot is engaging and the characters are interesting. I don't think that most people want narratives to play out similarly for every story they consume, so anything you can do to differentiate yourself while still maintaining a quality tale is probably a plus....

Re: I write... Literary Fiction?

Considering that visual novels often are used to manifest a literary genre (romance, cyberpunk, sci-fi, etc), I do think that Visual Novels certainly could fall under the category of "literary fiction." Yes, a lot of Visual Novels tend towards genre fiction, but don't have to be limited to that...a...

Re: I write... Literary Fiction?

While I don't quite agree with the distinction people make between "high art" literary fiction and... everything else, since I have been affected by plenty of "genre fiction" over the years (maybe moreso than any literary fiction I've read), I do feel like literary fiction is a genre. They are book...

Re: Plot Structure

You could always take the route that a lot of epic fantasy novels do and shift the point of view around. One day you follow around character A, another day you follow around character B etc. You don't necessarily have to write what all of your characters are doing every single day since you can sim...

Re: How to Make Your Characters Relevant to Your Story?

One of my favorite types of stories to write about is someone that exists in a place where massive amounts of action is taking place but is not in a position to influence it. Seeing how an ordinary person adapts to an extraordinary situation has a the right combination of fantasy and human elements....

Re: SC2VN [e-sports] [BxG][BxB]

Fans of StarCraft will recognize that we were heavily inspired by the realities of the competitive gaming scene. There have been works of fiction that touch on a reality where competitive games have become much more mainstream, and to a degree this is true of what is beginning to happen internationa...

Re: SC2VN [e-sports] [BxG][BxB]

As we embark on the latter half of our Kickstarter, we’d like to take this opportunity to highlight another one of SC2VN’s characters and explain our naming process. Characters in SC2VN are referred to by their professional gamer handles by both their fellow characters and the game itself. You won’t...

Re: SC2VN [e-sports] [BxG][BxB]

Wow a VN about SC2. that's awesome! To bad I missed the stream. I gave a try at the demo. playing it really feels great. getting to virtually make friends with MKP and MC is so cool. And they fit well their true self, as far as I can tell. (Even though MC had a big weight loss/surgery.) The writing...
