    There is no "bad taste". Everything is subjective.

    Unrelated, but everyone who talks shit on my comfort character needs to send me their full name, address, and hours during which they are alone (PST)

    Hi! Big news!

    I finished writing Impish! The most recent draft is up on Wattpad (I'll reblog this with a link). If anybody wanted to check it out, I would greatly appreciate it. Here's the blurb, for anyone interested! (I know it's not that polished. Sorry.)

    After a night at the movies and a sudden illness, Mikey Marks is in for a rude awakening when she grows a pair of horns and finds out she's half-demon. Enraged, she and her best-friend-slash-sibling track down her father at a local gas station. As it turns out, Doug the demon is totally willing to help her rectify this situation. Together, the three of them set out on a road trip to a theme park in Nevada, where Doug has a friend who can help.

    Touching you felt like fresh air.

    Like finally letting go of a deep breath I’d been holding

    Expecting the air to be smog ridden,

    But instead it tasted like nothing

    Like I’d been afraid for no reason at all.

    - another night alone

    Book Review: ‘Adachi and Shimamura’ #4

    Adachi and Shimamura (Light Novel) Vol. 4 by Hitoma Iruma My rating: 2 of 5 stars A clumsy romance is an ineffective one. In the fourth volume, readers are pressed, again, to submerge themselves into a counter-courtship by which the two lead characters are only so-so invested in their own happiness. Shimamura has fully crested the hill of maturity but only casually seeks to answer, for herself, what the future holds. Adachi helms responsibility for her emotional turmoil but only takes charge in pathetic fits and starts. ADACHI AND SHIMAMURA #4 is another slow, uneventful slog. However much this novel series mirrors the silent, penitent travails of young love, it doesn't make for a very interesting, digestible drama. Real teenagers do indeed fret internally over every little change in their social environment. Real teenagers do indeed scold themselves for every success as they do for every failure. And presumed real romance for real teenagers is likewise a mixture of scintillating flashes of arousal and slow-burning prickles of nameless attraction. The problem for ADACHI AND SHIMAMURA #4, however, is that when these facets are abruptly lined up, one after the other, young adult romance is thus shown to be exceedingly accidental, ordinary, and undemanding. Spring arrives for the girls, and along with spring comes the new school year. The girls are second-year students. Shimamura blends into the hustle and bustle and quickly acquires for herself a nondescript home of sorts. Her blasé personality lends itself to being easily absorbed into teen conversational and group dynamics on a whim. Adachi, on the other hand, is a constant rollercoaster: one day she's flying high, blushing for admitting her given name is Sakura, the next day, she's skipping class because she's too jealous of her classmate's innate sociability. Adachi's jealousy is the running focus of the novel. It's an interesting choice, because highly introverted characters also tend to be highly covetous. However, as readers likely already know, Adachi has never been a particularly good point-of-view character for this novel series. The girl behaves like a stray child, constantly seeking attention or approval, constantly annoying others with her dithering and indecision, and constantly misdiagnosing her personal failures as the misgivings of others. Adachi is cute. But one can only read so many scenes, chapters, whole books even, about an overly tense and woeful girl who vacillates between paralyzing self-pity and profound bravery at a moment's notice. Plainly, things would be a whole lot more interesting if these girls were in an actual relationship. This is the largest problem with ADACHI AND SHIMAMURA #4, if not the whole novel series. Because after four novels, the incessant hemming and hawing and dancing and dawdling grows irrefutably boring. The path to romance may not be tidy or swift in the real world, but in chunks of 250 pages of agonizingly weak character dynamics, all of the intersecting humor, drama, and newness of it all fades all too quickly.

    Starting a new WIP is both exciting and intimidating.

    Like: so many interesting characters! So many beautiful places in a whole new world! I can't wait to discover more about it all!

    ...and then I look at the blank page... And remember that I have to create the answers I'm looking for and scream at plot holes until I manage to fix them and make whole therapy sessions with my characters to understand why would they do this and why can't they do that and where the hell are we going now?

    Still, such a wonderful process!

    Tag list for “READ BEFORE THE SUN EXPLODES”

    I’m finally starting up an organized tag list for each of my projects!

    Interact with this post to be added to the tag list for READ BEFORE THE SUN EXPLODES. Currently in the plotting stages, you will be privy to the twists and turns the book makes and all the routes it almost went down. By the stages near publishing, you are also likely to read a handful of sun-explosion stories that did not match the final theme, ones which had to be cut but were too good to never be shared with anyone at all.

    Brief synopsis...

    A collection of short stories which take place right before the sun explodes and wipes out humanity (with uncanny comedic timing).
