@ISNEKO Man, I understand this a lot, but I feel that there's just a bit more of a contest to retain audiences here on Tapas. Because novels are a more sit down kind of engagement, it can be a lot more 'private' for some people. There's a sense of quiet commentary [good or bad] or appreciation from readers, and I feel that that makes it harder to get the engagement one is looking for, especially when it's a purposeful concentrated effort. All of this to say, please take care of yourself. It's so easy to dip one's pen in the familiar black well, but I've faith in you. You produce a lot of good quality work; it could just be a matter of trying to intentionally market towards what you series you specifically want highlighted. If there's anything we can do to help, def throw some ideas out!
@kainatarma I mean, yes, in essence, one should be able to find pride in one's own work. But there's nothing wrong in wanting to engage an audience. It's a sincere answer, and I'm glad to hear it!
I completely understand what you mean, haha, but if it brings you a chance to relax, then it's good! All the best.
I'll update with my own progress report since it's been a while.
I can clearly hear the water boiling in the pot while I type this, so I'll be quick. I'm speeding ever steadily towards my fifteen episode goal with Liquid Courage (which is shortened to LiqCour — y'all. It's genius.) I'm writing all the episodes I don't have queued yet, and then I'm going back to editing it. I've had this idea in the back of my head for about a year plus, wow!
Also, trying to plan the back bone of this 2019 project, and I'm happy to say that I think I've finally made a breakthrough. I promised myself I would take an hour to relax after work, so I'm gonna play Final Fantasy until the mood strikes me to make Abbott more miserable, hahaha!
