[Series Review] Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!

My favorite thing about Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! is how it shows developing creativity. Although the anime focuses on a small animation studio of three students producing animated shorts, so primarily dealing with project collaborations within that specific environment, many of the themes can apply to project work in other disciplines or even to solo work. There are elements that aren’t as polished, either intentionally or unintentionally, so it’s not perfect, but, close.

Rating: ★★★★☆ [4/5]

[2019 Novel] Scope of Work

Writing isn’t this mysterious thing. We over-complicate the whole process maybe out of a sense of wanting the whole experience to be more magical than it really is. The writing process is merely getting from the beginning of the idea to the end of the idea. If you don’t have the idea fully formed, you can’t write to it. Let’s consider some generic scoping for planning any project, then explore how I’ll scope this “2019 novel.”

[The Story] Couples on Buses

I’ve been writing and rewriting “The Story,” scene after stochastic scene, for as long as I can remember. An idea will pop up while I’m riding the bus, talking to someone, or reading a book. I’ll see a couple on the bus and think about John [left] and Trishna [right]. Better than stressing about work! In these situations, memories, or maybe more, I wonder: how much of “The Story” will be based on real people?

[Applied Self-Confidence] Executing Narratives Successfully

Nothing is more frustrating creatively than being unable to execute upon your imagination. You might perfectly envision something while laying half-asleep in bed, yet when you ready your tools, something doesn’t translate! The writing’s flat, drawing’s weird, or project’s just not progressing. How do you fix that? For my development of “The Story,” it’s simple: don’t give up! Keep writing/working, worldbuilding/developing, and planning on what’s easy, constantly working on harder material, until it’s all natural!
