It seems that I have vanished from the face of the earth. I haven't talked to anyone in deviantart, missed out a lot of my friends' new art submissions, and because I haven't seen or responded to any one of them, some of them probably thought I'm dead. I rarely talked to anybody like I used to, my family, friends, and even my girlfriend rarely heard from me. I even spoke the FEWEST words in the last few months! Why? My story I've been creating (for Secret Toys) is holding me captive!
I'm telling you, I'm NOT an experienced writer. I don't have expertise in writing a decently structured story. This is why Secret Toys took me longer than I expected. It's HARD AS EVER to write a good story!!! It's like I had to LEARN so many of my storytelling mistakes while I was writing one. Now, I know how to write a decent story. At least, I hope I'm on track with storytelling.
I'm more experienced in art, visual storytelling, designing, ya know? Anything to do with drawing. It's my passion. My goal is to work for DC and Marvel in the near future. I want to be a cover illustrator, or comic book artist, maybe I'll do some animation, too. So, drawing has never been an issue for me, but writing a story has been a major issue for me.
So, when I wrote a story for my own project, Secret Toys, I thought it would be easy... Man, was I wrong. I was WAY OFF!!! Storytelling is FAR from easy! Sure, writing a story is easy if one doesn't care how well the story will turn out at the end, but writing a GOOD, SATISFYING story is NOT!! Woo! I went back and forth like a madman, even now! I have been trapped in this story for such a long time! How long did storytelling take me to create? 4, 5, or 8 months? I dunno! I was too busy trying to fix my storytelling errors, even now. It's like I'm in a bad twilight zone!
After I'm done with the Secret Toys plot, I don't believe I will want to write a new story again. Storytelling is not fun anymore.
Now, I gotta get back to my storyboard in twilight zone... Yes. I'm still working hard as ever to finish it the best I can.
