Current Progress

 

Upcoming Novel Progress: Rough Draft Finished. 26 Chapters Total. Editing in August.

Current Total Word Count: 54,338

 

It’s June 25th, 2017.

I’m already working on a separate novel series. I haven’t decided on what to write next. I have so many ideas in my head and I don’t have the time for all of them at once. Life of a writer, I guess. As for my previous WIP, I’ll start the revision process in August when I am prepared enough to work on it. Still, have hopes for publication. It’s all coming together smoothly.

 

Ramblings:

Persona 5 was made for someone like me

 

I recently finished a game called Persona 5. It’s a JRPG about a group of teenagers who gain access to an alternate reality called the Metaverse. Inside, they encounter evil versions of normal people who expose their true, corrupt desires. With a new purpose, the heroes become the Phantom Thieves to stop these corrupt adults and reform Japanese society.

This game is very dark (It’s rated M), yet has a lighthearted charm to it. From the mascot-style cat character, Morgana, to all of the crazy antics of the Phantom Thieves, this game is something that I felt was right up my alley. Persona is part of the Megami Tensei series of JRPG/Horror games. Many of them involve demons and evil-related horrors. Persona shares many of these enemies.

It’s also a monster collecting game in the same vein as Pokémon. You damage them enough for them to surrender and you can make them your Persona. I enjoyed another sort of game called World of Final Fantasy which had similar if far more lighthearted elements. Yet each of them had somewhat dark moments underneath.

While I won’t give away too much, I enjoyed Persona 5 a ton, and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested. While I do try to make my works appeal to younger audiences around 10-17 and higher, and I do realize I’m talking about an M-rated game, it’s what appeals to me that I want to discuss. Persona 5 has that charm and darkness that mesh well together and neither side overpowers the other. I enjoy the lighthearted yet serious works, and this one is perfect for a guy like me.

I also want to mention that seeing as how this is a new website for a currently unpublished author, I will be limiting these posts to monthly rather than weekly. Until I get a bigger base, I’ll go back to weekly. Just a heads up.

That’s all for today. Take care, and remember, the inn is always open.
