My sister is coming back from her week-long holiday tonight, and I was so relaxed with her not being around. :T

I have to go to school tomorrow

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

I was planning to catch up on old games this year because I had just enough time and dedication available for it, but now I can't because of ALL THE GAMES that were announced at Nintendo Direct.

I scrapped my old comic idea, and this time, it's probably for good. Luckily it hadn't really gotten past the planning phase outside of some practice strips, but still, I was really longing to get that comic made recently, but now I think it's time to let it go. For one thing, it wasn't going the direction I originally wanted it to - it was supposed to be a comedy with a light story to it, yet almost all the new material I wrote for it recently were story-focused, action-ish stories that don't seem to mesh as well with the older material. To put it simply, it was slowly turning into a super hero comic, which was not what I originally intended to write. Besides, if I want to write a super hero comic, I should probably make that as the main goal from the beginning, instead of shoehorning it into a completely different story.

Not only that, but my plan was to work on this comic for 10+ years - I don't think I have to willpower to commit to one story for that long, especially if the whole thing is based on ideas I came up with in tenth grade - Yes, I originally came up with it and planned it through when I was 16. I'm already a different person from who I was when I was 16 now, I'll definitely be a completely different person 10 years from now. I really don't think I would've really stayed with the comic for the full intended length of time. It doesn't help that I recently read a journal of a person who tried to do a comic for 10+ years based on an idea that they came up with in 10th grade, and ended up losing enthusiasm for it after 8 years, leaving the comic unfinished. I don't want to do that, not to myself, not to my readers (if I have any...).

There's even more reasons, but I think you guys get the gist. I probably shouldn't have held onto this idea for so long, but I don't move on very easily. In fact, I might be tempted to pick the old idea back up again if I don't come up with a new one soon. It's day three already, and I don't have the slightest clue what my next project should be. I'm sure I'll think of something, though, and if it becomes necessary, I'll recycle a few old ideas I came up for for my older comic world. If nothing else, the past few years have shown that I am very good at coming up with ideas. My imagination has not yet dulled, I suppose, so now it's just time to look towards the future, and see if I can come up with a new idea that's even better than the old one - and hopefully this time I'll put it into action!

Still pretty bummed I couldn't at least come up with an ending, though. Oh well...

@CanisWolfred If you like that comic but don't think you can commit to it for 10 years why not shorten it? You could think about what parts of the story you most want to tell to your readers and build it around that. Maybe you could downsize the cast and keep the characters that are most important/the characters you most want to show to your readers. Another idea is removing some ideas and saving them for a different series and then changing them to fit the comic they will be in.

I tried to do that, but couldn't. Just covering the story arcs of the main cast takes up most of that time, and their dynamic doesn't work as well with less characters (tried just following it with 3 of them, but I didn't like it). Besides, as I said, I didn't like where it was going, anyways. I don't think I want to do a pure comedy anymore, anyways. Originally I wanted something little kids could enjoy, but I think I've moved on from that now. I had a lot of trouble keeping my ideas PG after a while...

It should be easier to start fresh. I actually did come up with two other stories as a quick excersize last year. Had a pad full of ideas in a few hours. It shouldn't be too hard, I just need to get out of my deep blue funk I'm in right now and start brainstorming.

PS4. I expected so much more. While I just heard about an Infamous game, other than that, the no details on the new Final Fantasy made for a lackluster announcement. I hope they have something better to show at E3.

A very close family friend was hit by a car yesterday. And the people who did it just drove on, without doing anything. I feel really bad for her. She had a concussion and broke her jaw/ a rib.
My real disappointment is that the person who did it (even by accident.) didn't stop or anything.

Whenever (most of the time if) a teacher does that, then I make them look stupid. Hey, I have the knowledge and resources to do so. I get sent to the principal afterwards.
