I just started a new on last week. I’m already on chapter 13

I am still running around high from watching Uno skate to his first senior gold, finally. It was a perfect skate, and he gave his all, and it was just such a fantastic thing to see… pure expression of triumph.

Gonna go out for a bit,then watch gala…

I don’t think I can settle into anything, I am so unreasonably elated still. It’s just so beautiful to see someone so spectacularly get what he had wanted for so long.


#725

Wow, that’s impressive!


#726

Thanks, I just posted the first chapter yesterday.

#728

I will try and look at the Blake antag idea when I’ve finished watching an TV show episode


#729

Does anyone have advice when it comes to writing Murder Mystery sort stuff? Like, Scooby-Doo except people are dead and the murderer is pretty Jack the Ripper-like. The story takes place before forensic science so that cancels out everything I know about catching murderers.


#730

Have you read or watched anything in the genre? That could help give you ideas. I would recommend The Alienist on Netflix for one.


#731

That looks like it could work. I’ll check that out. I don’t know how I manage to only watch modern murder stuff.


#732

Even contemporary murder-mysteries can give you good ideas. What’s the setting you’re working with? Researching the time period and how they dealt with crime during it can further provide inspiration. Researching real-life murder cases from the time as well can help.


#733

Think I finally have some direct antagonist conflict. Yay!


#734

But how does a mercenary have personal ties to the Royal family?


#735

Maybe the Royal Family wanted to use them for something?


#736

Or has a fling with one of the members of the Royal family?


#737

That could work and add a lot of drama!


#738

The more I listen to my music, I have these ideas.

I have a song on play list thats about a scene from an anime where one of the characters gets tortured for sleeping with the princess.


#739

Oh damn. Though honestly I’m not surprised lmao


#740

Watching the newer eps of the anime but still wanna watch that episode.


#741

I’m blaming Assassins Creed for some of my new plot developments


#742
