Updates! Even if they're very minor. I promised myself I would write at least once every few days with updates. I'm going to try to also make progress every day. Meaning, draw every day, write every day, that sort of thing. I made some progress today, which I'm glad about. The past few days have been kind of stagnant. Even if I was itching to get to work, I had no idea what to work on!

Here are the updates:

Sketches: Done! 5 out of 5 stars
Colouring: Haven't even started yet. 0 out of 5 stars
Profile: Done! 5 out of 5 stars!

Yes, I'm about two-thirds done with Rose! I'm setting up a few deadlines for myself. By the end of this week, I'm going to try to see if I can start painting, and I'm going to try to see if I can get a tracing pad and some graphite pencil, maybe HB or B, I'm not sure. I already have everything else I need for this step of the project. 

I also continued the plot outline, even though it was a rougher idea than my previous chapter outlines because I've only ever done any real focusing and development on the beginning of the story. Whoops  but hopefully I'll dedicate as much time and effort on the rest of the story as I did on the beginning! Maybe it'll be just as good. I want to avoid a decline in any quality that my story may have. It sucks when you're directing so much passion and extensive effort into the beginning of the story only to be like "meh" and not even trying by the end. I want to give this story my all ;w;

Do you ever just lay in bed and just stare at the light seeping in through your bedroom window and think about the music that inspires you and all these intense, powerful emotions just overcome you? That's how I felt last night. 

Anyway, I don't know if I mentioned this before but I don't want to start doing any writing until I get all the character sheets and profiles done and maybe bang out some concept art too, which I'll post up here. That'd be cool. It's going to take a while though, I think. Concepts concepts concepts! That's all I'm focused on right now. I should do some plot work on the side too though, because obviously it's an integral part of the story. 

I feel kind of sad about deleting my old journal, but I felt like I had to, really. 

I also have to go around taking photos of everything!! I have to take photos of the local high school, and the beaches, and the town. One day I'm going to just walk around town taking pictures of everything I see. I need to for references. 

I feel like my painting skills aren't super hot right now, but I guess that's why I'm doing concept art right now, is so I can improve. Hopefully I'll be good enough within the next two years!

Anyways, I'm going to sign off now. I'll write again in a few days.
