Consider this an open forum, if you will. And unofficial edition of “I’m Curious!”
As I’ve noted, I plan on using this blog as more of a place for consistent updates on myself and my projects. But I don’t wanna bore you guys with particulars. Instead, I’d love to know what sorts of updates you think would actually be interesting.
Like I said, I don’t want to bore you with all the nitty-gritty of the writing process because – let’s be honest – that’s just not for everyone. I am a highly mechanical writer, for one. Learning every little detail would be far from exciting. It’d be rather dull.
But I want to be more transparent about our projects, in general. And I’m interested in knowing what kinds of updates you guys – our audience of awesome – would actually want to see. I’m not talking about stuff like the Flash Fictions and Short Fictions. Nor any of the other little creative teases like them that we’ve got planned. I’m talking about things that are sort of behind-the-scenes style things. What sort of information on that front would you guys want? Stuff related to artwork? Progress updates? Maybe the occasional Q&A? What do you guys think would be cool?
A lot goes into making these things. Lots of planning, lots of meetings, lots of editing, and a whooole lot of waiting. We’ve still got to keep some secrets, obviously. But if you tell me the kinds of things you’d be really curious about, it could help us make this whole process a bit more open and less mysterious and inaccessible. Dig?
I’d be interested in the mechanics and work behind it, but that might just be me…
The story is the important part and I enjoy the process of coming up with the ideas. I was involved in a podcast where we would watch classic anime and brainstorm ideas for original fiction in the podcast. It was a lot of fun and while I can see the concern that others may steal your ideas but ideas are fleeting. It’s how you tell the story that matters.

Yeah. That was something I had a lot of experience with in school for my writing degree. Pretty much the first thing they told us was “Stop being worried about people stealing your ideas. It’s silly.” There was obviously a lot more to it than that. But that’s what it boiled down to. And I definitely fall into that line of thinking. Any secrets I keep are more about wanting to let the audience learn some stuff organically through reading than any sense of security of the ideas in the works.
And yeah! I totally getcha. I do plan on getting into some of the mechanics, for sure. I just know that not everyone’s gonna wanna know about every little detail. I understand that a lot of it can seem monotonous from an outside perspective.

Reblogged this on GALVANIC and commented:
Just a quick thing. Ran this project update on my personal blog, asking what kinds of behind-the-scenes updates and stuff you guys would be interested in seeing from us. It applies to my own individual projects, but also to Burning Sky. So be sure to check that out!
