I’m happy to report the artist replied to me in the affirmative for the picture I really wanted to use. She asked that I reference her of course, and I asked if she had a website I could link to. I haven’t heard back on that, but I”m happy that at least I have permission to use the image.
The above is not he picture I was looking for permission on, but rather something I found while searching the internet for a suitable Chapter 7 cover. It wouldn’t be for this chapter anyway, but I like the image of the rose in chains as it pertains to this story.
I’m still on the second edit, which I’m finding to be more productive than the first. I thought that went a bit too easily. Not that the second is overly challenging, but I’m definitely fixing more than I initially did.
Quote: “Never entertain such thoughts, such horrors, or dark drenched dreams. I will never allow them to harm you again. They will not have limbs or fingers to grasp. I will remove every part that ever hurt you. Every single one I will hunt down like the monsters I killed this night. I will rip through their minds and tear out the truth, but leave their wits intact. They will know what they did. They will know why they suffer, and they will die unable to scream.”
Title: Half a Tragedy Is Worse Than Whole
Subject: FFVII Comparative and Meta
Status: On hold
Progress: Outline Completed
I have this on my planner to work on this week: Monday, Thursday, and Saturday, and I’m off on Monday. I usually schedule out my weekly plans on Saturday or Sunday, and for essays, I’ll figure out which days of the week I can devote to them and put that on a loop until complete. Monday and Thursday are days where I don’t have any weekly posts to do. Owing to what time of the year we’re in, I don’t foresee being able to work on it each of those days, but I’ll try. I just read a blog post by Athena at AmbiGaming about flawed heroes, which put me back in the mind of Greek tragedy, since that’s one of the necessary elements. Sometimes all it takes is a little bit of inspiration.
What are you currently working on? Is it a creative writing project, essay, review, or something else? Have you just started something new or are you wrapping up a long term project?
