because who cares about what i've done, it's done.
i'm on a hunt for prompts from all over now for concepts and themes and genres that are outside my scope of ability. if i want to immediately not do the prompt, that's the one. i'm having some luck on tumblr finding the good stuff and i'll be checking out the ones here at dA, too. looking forward to trying my hand at SadPrompts
Preparation, however, will consist of me pretending that my house is a library and reading something every two weeks. My style is stale and dry and I need to do something else. i just have had a rough last couple of years and it is all i can do to keep going some days. i didn't read much, i didn't write much. not a fan of both, so i'm gonna do something about it.
by the way, did you know reddit has writing prompts? holy dogshit, a reason to go hang out in that dumpster!+

So I've got the idea for my next project that I can apply the above plan. They're generated from chaotic shiny, a great site www.chaoticshiny.com/
when you can't think. Anyway, they are seedling kind of stories, real quick vignettes based on the protocol generated from cs. looks like mostly microfiction and flash that might be able to lead to something more later on. i'm planning on covering at least 17 genres in this project. it's kind of exciting. then i'll be giving the result to my fella and he will draw the "cover art" so this will be a little personal creative growth collab for us both. i have an idea of doing two a week, which is plenty of time for this for both of us. we need it, we work too much.
a dream is a goal with a deadline.
it will be interesting to see how this starts to how it is when it's over. there, hopefully, will be at least 150 pieces of art between the two of us. i have to start with a story and pass it to him -- i'm over here wondering how to organize this. do i come up with a character for each genre and follow their lives from story to story or do whatever? i'm not the world's biggest fan of whatever. i should take this time to come up with a basic-ass character to start these stories for each genre. i like that idea, actually. thanks, dAmuch love to seventh sanctum
because they generate stuff like this: The strong-willed yet elegant Southern Belle who is trying to prove himself to his dead parents and who doesn't want to reveal the secret of the alien invasion.
and that only goes to prove that humans can't make shit up like that without it NOT making sense
