[Novel 02] Cleaning Up Sewers

This was my first livestream of my Minecraft build series where I felt halfway normal. I’ve been using Minecraft as a storytelling tool for eventually telling “The Story” after learning that I don’t tell scene details well from writing “Novel 01.” Although I love and appreciate “Novel 01” for what it is, I can do better. “Novel 02” and beyond can help from the added perspective of thinking about sets at length and from passers-by of the livestream.

[Novel 02] Learning Cloning Basics

After this eighth building session, wherein I relayed during a livestream what I had built in Minecraft to replicate buildings and other possibly imaginary, possibly real structures in that mysterious other-dimensionality space where fiction resides, for setpieces within “The Story,” taking the lessons I learned while writing Novel 01 to build Novel 02 in a manner where I could then write 03 and on easily, I thought deeply. I learned what I must do. It involves Zealie here.

[Tripping On…] The Name Zombiepaper

When I first picked the name Zombiepaper on January 26 2008, I wasn’t planning on it being prophetic over a dozen years later, although now that we’re here at the point where each day for the past few months I’ve had the cadence of a zombie, it might be a good time to write about what the name means to me. In a sense, it’s a nothing name. Names sometimes gain their meaning after you apply them.

[Literature Build] Slimeoid Freak Development

I’d like to take you through my process of writing the short story I published this morning. This essay has more to do with the nuts-and-bolts of preparing yourself for writing fiction. As a cheat sheet, consult the Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. That’s how I assess any writer’s block I might have, but it should be useful to read an outline of my specifics because that’s how I assess priorities that might block the writing.

[Media Meandry] Leaving Endless War

I left Endless War. I suppose normally I wouldn’t write about leaving communities or anything of this nature, but because I had written so much over the past few months about the community, and it had helped develop certain artistic talents, I should at least wrap up this section of my life with an essay. My essay “Princeps Drafts Two-Part-One” was my debating whether or not I should leave. Though I’m sad, I feel OK.

[Media Meandry] Princeps Drafts Two-Part-One

I spent roughly 2 hours and 18 minutes coloring this picture to bring it to its second draft from its first draft. It is for a contest where, even if I lose, I feel that I’ve gained through my own technical understandings of art. I’m drawing in MS Paint, which is not forgiving for coloring. I could download other free programs, but I feel like the challenges in working in such a restrictive program help me learn.

[Media Meandry] Princeps Drafts One

Does an image, or series of images, or plot seer itself into your mind with such intensity you need to exorcise it? I thought about this ENDLESS WAR five-panel comic based on the reward I would win for a contest I entered. Even if I lose, I still enjoyed the journey of drawing comics for my previous entry, so I’m going to do the same again. This time, I made note of timestamps, for reference.

[Media Meandry] Revisiting Bodega Hipster

In any community, here our example is focused on ENDLESS WAR, submitting new thoughts, expanding lore, influencing culture, or having swayed the influence of thought are all subtly interesting considerations. When we act in ways that inspire others, isn’t it a wonderful thing? I created some fanart for a hipster character that was well-received, but I wanted to add some further bits for clarification. Whether it sticks or not, now, isn’t a concern of mine.

[Media Meandry] Losing A Princep

As much as I’m one that agrees with the mentality that ‘second place is first loser,’ I also feel that entering any sort of contest should be a journey for one’s own development. Winning any prizes should be secondary. Sure, that’s easy for me to say for ENDLESS WAR, where, in the previous contest, I won the game’s highest honor: winning a princep. Life isn’t always about winning. What happens when we lose? Don’t fret.

[Media Meandry] Building GOAT Goat

Without looking through the ENDLESS WAR logs, I brought up Bang Energy, which was later described as cartoon soda, and then someone asked a fated question: “Would people like to see some goat unicorns?[1]” From there, three of us jammed on the idea of having a goat unicorn – goaticorn – with assorted automotive enhancements. We three artists would then jam on our renditions of such a G.O.A.T. goat. Sometimes, you’ve just gotta draw these crazy ideas.
