I've returned, and need an artist who can draw mecha

I've finally made a return, and after hammering out much of the story, I think I'm have something good in the works. Here is an... interesting way to describe the story. A city ruined by the darkness of science, and a man who regrets his life wanders through the squalor of this world, and woman purs...

Re: What makes a story?

I belive that I'm irregular in saying this, but a good story is one that the writer pours his full spirit into. If you think its what it should of been, if you don't sell out then you've written a great story, no matter what I or anyone else thinks.

Re: Any general suggestion for a first time VN writer?

I was actually considering reading "The art of inventing characters" by Geroges Polti, I'm already going to read "The Thirty-Six Dramatic Situations", then keeping what works and throwing out what dosen't. This way I can avoid makeing underdeveloped characters

Any general suggestion for a first time VN writer?

Basicly, I'm asking for any kind of general tip from anyone. Right now my biggest concern is getting started. I don't want a "write this kind of story" prompt, just some kind of advice for getting a story started.

Still, don't limit yourself to answering that question. I need all the help I can get.

Re: Desperate writer needs artist, and if possible composer

Thank you for your advice, I like to learn from my mistakes, so feel free to find any other mistakes, espicially when you see the letter "N" in places it shouldn't be, my "n" key needs fixing.
