My birthday was this week, and as a present to myself I’ve decided to give me a ton of extra work!
I’ve left Darkened Heart by the wayside for a very long time (seriously, how the sod did 2 years go by?), and it’s tempting to just leave it dead. But I do have a story in mind for it, a Plan, and I want to see that plan through to the end. I think I finally understand what webcomic creators say when they say that you have to do something because you love it, not because of external stimuli.
Rationality tells me that there’s no reason to continue. Who’s going to look at this old project? It’s not like it was ever all that widely circulated to begin with… I’m my own answer. I’m going to look at this project. I’m going to look at it and see an unfinished work, never quite as done as I’d like.
The climactic scene I had in mind for this project is epic to the point of near impossibility. But you know what? It’s still possible. And given that, I still want to make it happen.
Wish me luck.
