    I cannot this year due to real life issues. I've started rewriting Straag, but have had to put it on hold of a spell due to anxiety about a large scale battle I have to write and just general real life stuff. Hard to write and be creative when you're tryi...

    As Liss already mentioned odor and sounds are also very important. I personnally think she might have gone for something a tad too animalistic but to each their own. I think it's odd to try and go for as much of a one to one transposition ...

    This is an interesting conversation and I use tails and other animal features to convey emotion in my stories for the Straag universe. But I also want to point out some often neglected emotional indicators in conveying emotion that I often employ for my a...

    I'll say what I've said in Discord channels. I think nothing will really change for past releases, because to change that model would be extremely stupid and ultimately Microsoft has to run a business. Alienating their audience by being an asshole troll a...  more

    I think when writing, you should be as visually clear as possible to your readers. I, for one, would struggle with different fonts or text colors, not because I wouldn't appreciate what you're going for, but because I suffer from rather severe eye strain....

      The Sunflower Manual Like I said when I read the draft, I really liked the new complexity this gives to Vingalmo both in the context of the past narrative and the present-time narrative. Always a new layer to their hate when the old-friends-and-rivals-turned-bitter-enemies re...  more

      A-Pocky-Hah! The Crystal Tower chapters have always been one of my favorite parts of Straag Rod, along with the Vampire Symposium. Can't wait to see what changes you've brought to this rewrite. I'm sure it'll be just as epic as the first time I read it.
