Oops, still making stuff

As it turns out, I can’t “just quit”. I still want to, but also can’t seem to stop myself working on stuff, even passively. I don’t really know where that leaves me. Probably keep putting stuff out as before, I guess.

Janky Pirate Costume

Decided to start working on the costume. Still dunno if it's gonna be completed, but anyone interested can follow the progress on [my blog]. There's already a couple posts up. ~Niv

Tiny Update

I'm experimenting with including links to character refs in the description of stories. Since I rely so heavily on them anyway, I figured it might be helpful to directly connect them, instead of leaving people to go looking. All but one of the links are internal, and go to the submissions pages ins…

Slight "rebranding"

I realized there's a bit of conflict in using "LLTC" for my contributions to the setting, since that is actually a main-plot relevant name. The "Lost Legends Trading Company" is the actual place where the main cast works, but we've been using the acronym as a useful shorthand for the whole setting.…

Explanation about my writing that no one asked for

I’m writing a lot lately, and whenever that happens I start thinking about this stuff. I feel compelled to explain all this shit, just so it stops taking up space in my head. If it can also be useful, great. If you want anything clarified, feel free to ask and I’ll do my best. -TL;DR- I am not a pr…

Venting about unimportant shit

One thing I really dislike about writing versus visual mediums when it comes to story/characters is that it outright cannot be subtle in a very particular way, one I personally tend to think/create with: You cannot leave things for the audience to notice on their own. If I draw a picture of a room,…

Another writing update

In the spirit of providing more upfront info, I decided to add little summaries to all my story posts. Not all of them are that great or helpful, but it's difficult to give a meaningful summary of a story that's not even a whole page in length. I'm thinking on how to do content warnings as well, bu…

Tidying my writying

Thought it would be helpful to start including the (approximate) word count in the description of my literary posts, and while updating them, I refreshed all the submission files while I was at it to give them all a consistent format. So everything should be a little neater now. Got more shit in th…

UGH

I am so very in the mood to make something with my hands, but I haven't the money nor the cause...

So that was fun

Twenty years living in tornado alley, I've never had a tornado come that close to my house before. It was a mile wide, EF4, and it came within four miles of us. First time we've ever had to seek shelter in the basement. Everyone's fine. I'm still crashing from the adrenaline.

Tiger-Scale is now Nivularium

So apparently the answer to "when will that go through" is 3-4 months. I put in on Dec 3rd, and it just happened like twenty minutes ago. Gotta be honest, I had kinda gotten used to the idea of keeping the old name after so long, but not enough to think about changing it back. Either way it's nice…

Done waffling

I'm gonna try to suck it up, I guess, and put my writing here. I have to do a bit of prep work first, turning everything into fuckin' PDFs, though, so I'll probably get stuff up tomorrow. ~Niv

Well that's discouraging

I was starting to warm up to the idea of putting written work here, but I gave it a couple tests and it just reaffirmed my dislike for Weasyl's format options. It's very discouraging because that leaves me without a place to put this stuff, and that makes it a lot harder to find the motivation to w…

Old uploads done

I think that's all that really needs to go up. Uploads are gonna be infrequent now, since I don't do stuff too regularly, but after I get a couple of recent things out of the way, I'll be posting stuff as it gets done from then on out. ~Niv

Thought about it, changed my mind

Decided not to migrate everything, because that's about two years of stuff and some of it just doesn't really need to be here anyway. I'm tempted to go back and update some stuff, but that as well would be too much. So I'm just gonna pare it down to stuff I really like, or that needs a place to go.…

Policy changes

As a result of Tumblr shooting itself in the face, I'm changing how I use this account. Previously, I restricted this gallery to things that were primarily my own work, and finished. Things made by friends, which I then colored, went on the art blog. But many of those things are adult, and will nee…

SO HEY~

If you don’t like my idea or my character(s), whether in part or whole, but have already agreed to do the thing, don’t fucking change it without saying anything. I am in no way okay with that, and if money is involved, it will likely be the last time. I don’t appreciate having my characters redesig…

New Blog

I made a new art-only type blog on Tumblr, so for anyone that likes Tumblr as an alternative, but just wants to see my content without a bunch of random reblogs, now you can! http://nivularium.tumblr.com/ It's more or less exactly the same as here, but some people have site preferences, so... Also…

Not taking work.

I’m not taking requests for work anymore. Not that it happens very often anyway, but when it does, nine times out of ten there’s no follow through. I don’t want to spend an hour hammering out details and a price with you just to never hear from you again, or have you act as though the conversation…

More on the horizon

I am now broke, but I will have plenty to do in the coming week(s). I may actually have some things to sell as a result. I almost can’t even wrap my head around the idea… ~Niv

Sneak preview from (Vi)Kings

"Thick, dark clouds were rolling toward the horizon. This battle would outlast the sun, as the coming storm raced across the sky like Sköll to devour its light. Einar saw the shape of a wolf’s head in the clouds, which he found disturbing in light of his observation. The gods were truly watching th…

I wish people cared about my writing as much as I do...

And so it begins

Alright, with that first submission I've decided to start posting here. I have some other stuff I can post to give my gallery a little kick-start, I'll be doing that over the next few days rather than dumping it all at once. (I also have to find all the pictures) >.> I'm definitely going to be post…
