Kyūketsuki chapter 13—it’s coming!

January 31, 2010

I am about halfway through writing chapter 13 of Kyūketsuki. I wanted to finish it yesterday, but I got distracted and wasn’t able to do so :/ All of the pictures have been taken and edited in Photoshop, so if I don’t get the new chapter up today, I will soon (probably tomorrow).

This is a huge chapter for Kyūketsuki, and I’m really excited about it! Some of the mystery surrounding Tomo will start to be solved (though don’t expect to know everything).

Oh, and another not-so-important event is coming. Rez day number three is on Friday 🙂 If you see me in world, free free to say, “hi.” I’m going to try not to work in world that day, so I should be more sociable than usual.

Anarkitty

December 9, 2009

It’s finally happening. I’m getting excited about SL again 🙂

As you probably know by the numerous mentions I have made regarding it, I have a story blog titled Kyūketsuki. Though I have enjoyed working on it since its inception, I find it hard to add new posts. I feel that I’ve set the bar so high for myself when it comes to that blog that working on it has become, well . . . work. This effectively cut off one of my creative outlets and took away some of my motivation for SL.

Recently, I’ve had an idea in mind for another story blog. It grew from a group I had registered in SL a long time ago called Anarkitty. The idea at the time had been to create my own clothing line in world, but I never got the motivation to do a lot of designing for SL, other than my failed shape store, Pygmalion (still a good name for a shape store, though!). I began to think about what kind of storyline could be associated with that title, and it began to blossom in my mind, and I kept getting more and more excited as I thought about it 🙂

So, within the next few weeks, I will be unveiling Anarkitty, my newest story blog. The narrative follows a neko teenager who has fled her home country due to racial conflict. The story is influenced by a lot of different sources, though it will have a strong anime feel to it (in no small part due to the fact that the story is set in Japan).

Anyway, I hope you all will give it a chance. This in no way means that I have abandoned Kyūketsuki. I care about that story too much to not return to it. This will just be lighter fare to work on in between Kyūketsuki posts.

Kyūketsuki Chapter 12

October 12, 2009

So, you know how I usually talk about how much I want to work on Kyūketsuki and then promise that I’ll make a new post sometime in the near future? Well, I decided to go against that trend and not post until the new chapter is up.

Without further ado, I present Chapter 12 of Kyūketsuki.

I’ve actually had the pictures done for nearly a month, and I just got around to writing the post. Sometimes, there’s just too much RL to deal with :/

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it 🙂

Chapter 11 posted (finally!)

March 18, 2009

It could probably use an edit, but chapter 11 of Kyūketsuki has finally been added.

And now I can get some sleep 🙂

Very quick Kyūketsuki update

March 17, 2009

OK, all of the images are done and have been uploaded (though you can’t see them yet), and I began writing the new chapter last night. Unfortunately, I was tired and fell asleep before I finished it :/

I know I’m not going to be able to work on the new chapter tonight, so the earliest you will see it will be on Wednesday evening. I *do* promise that it will be up by the end of the week.

I did upload a new header for Kyūketsuki yesterday. I think it’s better than the last, but feel free to tell me what you think.

Beware the Ides of March . . .

March 15, 2009

. . . because that’s when kitties scurry out of the alleys to resurrect their SL accounts . . .

So, yeah, I was in SL for a while today. I’ve been on and off since my rez day, but usually only for brief periods of time. I did recently get to see my friend Keeley and her hubby Geo play in world, which is always a treat, but other than that, I’ve been mostly absent. Today, though, I spent several hours in world with one goal in mind—to finish taking the pictures I need for chapter 11 of Kyūketsuki. And I’m happy to say, mission accomplished 🙂

Yep, I finally have the pictures taken, and I’ve even done most of the post-processing, so after a ridiculously long hiatus, Kyūketsuki is being revived! I’m hoping to finish up working on the images tonight and to complete the new chapter sometime tomorrow evening. No empty promise this time!

I’ve really felt the need to create recently, so maybe this will get me going on the blog again. If not, well, you’ll only have another six-to-seven months to wait for the next chapter 😛

Oh, and I uploaded a few pics to my Flickr account today. I’m mostly just showing off some of the rez day gifts my uber-generous friends gave me. Speaking of which, I totally need to get with Wolf—who gave the gift of lindens—to help me pick out something. Yeah, you’re not shirking your responsibility in helping with the gift-choosing, buddy 😉

That’s all for now. I hope you all enjoy chapter 11 of Kyūketsuki when I get it up. I think this chapter brings with it some interesting developments, but there is a very slight chance I might be biased . . .
