So I received the first edits for chapter 1 of Feathers Fall today. There was a mixup in that she used the old pre edited version instead of the latest version I had available. It didn’t matter though because despite my own numerous passes through, pretty much every comment she made as still relevant. It was brutal. And I love it. It’s so good to get another person’s eyes over your work. When you get so familiar with something you really don’t see the flaws, even if they’re obvious.
Curious as always is the difference between Australian and US terminology. Something that seems so obvious to me raises some weird questions. Good times.
With some interpretation, I was able to make all the feedback work for chapter 1. There were some solid improvements. On to chapter 2.
When you re-read the first moment your two characters fall for each other. Right in the feels.
First draft of Feathers Fall complete. Woah. Big deal. That was a long one. The ending came quickly.
After a brief Diablo 3 addiction, I have had a short creative burst to add a few more words to Feathers Fall. The current scene has a poetry to it that I’m enjoying and it just feeds on itself.
I really need to finish this damn thing so I can move on.
I didn’t have Aiko 4 so I didn’t know it came with a build in american style face morph. After acquiring that, and with some Gen X transfer to copy the morph across to Genesis, it ends up with quite the appealing and easy to use character.
Oh yeah, I should probably do some writing
It is so hard to get anything done with a headcold. Can’t work, can’t write, can’t concentrate. Blegh. It’ll be a few days before I probably pick up FF and write again.
More messing around with my new character:
So after a recent trip to the movies to see the Disney movie Frozen, I decided to challenge my DAZ skills to see how close I could get a character to looking like one of the more Disney 3D characters while still making sure it looks good
The result? Some things are difficult to impossible to truly achieve, particularly the eyes, but getting something that at least “looks good” was achievable. I really like the result, it’s different enough to not be a straight out copy while still having a lot of the appeal of their stylised characters:
Just wanted to post that Spock (aka Leonard Nimoy) has some amazing photographs to his name.
I downloaded an app for my tablet, Duolingo, which is a free language learning tool and game. It’s neat. I picked to learn German because I thought I knew a little bit of German and that would speed things along. Turns out I understand German about as well as I understand women.
