The muse says: "w00t"
Howdy, folks, this is Bax's muse speaking! I'm doing just fine, thanks for asking; busier this week than I've been in a long, long time, and loving it.

Courtesy of BaMoTTuSto, we have here another two days' worth of stories, hot off of the ... um ... keyboard ... thingy: Sensei Wolf and Love poultice No. 95. Martial arts and magic gone wrong! What more could you ask for?

Well, okay, if I were you, I could ask for more feedback, but that's just because I'm a big attention whore. :) Notice me! Notice me! Tell me what you think! Hell, even critique my execrable writing and predictable plots! (At this pace, you think quality is my first priority? ;))

Or just let me know that you're reading (or not reading, as the case may be, if you've got your own NaNoWriMo writing to do)! Or even just answer the next poll, because I'm shameless and know that sex gets attention:

Poll #200724 NaPr0NiMo!

Should I write TTU pr0n for one of my BaMoTTuSto entries as a change of pace?

Dude, do you even have to ask? ;-)

Current Mood: sillysilly
Current Music: Can't get "Suikoden Forgotten Daze OC ReMix" out of my head

...Uhh, never mind the fact that I'm not actually 18. The relevant age in Misourri is 17, I swear! Look it up!

You don't work in the coal production industry, do you? I'm not sure I could justify contributing to the delinquency of a miner ...

Don't worry, I haven't declared my minor yet!

And let it be known that Opera doesn't do well with sending the fact that I was, indeed, logged in when using unusual display settings.

Is that a unicorn in your pocket, or

You can use the syrup leftover from

Oh dear. Umm.. syrup makes scales stick together and go all gunky anyway. };=8p

On to the ego gratification literary appraisal!
I liked Sensei Wolf not because of the plotting or the style particularly, but because you are probably the only writer (I can think of on the spur of the moment) whose action scenes I actually enjoy reading. I liked Learning Experiences for the same reason.

Thanks! It's good to hear that, because action seems to be one of my strengths (much as dialogue seems to be a weak point). Wish I knew what it is about my writing that makes it work.

There'll be more action; with 22 stories left in the month it's impossible for me not to. ;) And hopefully this burst of productivity will kick my ass enough to get me to edit "Dragon Tamers," and/or finish the Ash samurai duel story that's currently in production ...

Dunno. Maybe the fact that there's whizz-bang magic and dragons and wolves in it. They tend to make action scenes more interesting... Pacing (in the sense of what happens when) is important for action, and you seem to have that down.

Have you thought about two- and three-parters? You could work in some nifty cliffhangers.

I don't think anyone will blame you if, by the end of the month, you collapse in a heap and run screaming from anything TTU-related altogether.

Your Writing.

Hey, it's Rob. I'm infiltrating your LJ now, too. Bwa ha ha.

This'll probably be more generalistic than you were looking for, but ... your writing works because -- when it's all read and done -- it makes sense at the end. It comes together.

When Kaijima, for example, creates a new work of art, it looks like he must have had such an exceptionally clear image of it in his mind that all he had to do was set his hand upon the paper and the image spontaneously appeared on it.

Your writing is like that. When I read it, it comes across that before you even wrote the first word, you knew exactly what you wanted to say. And, usually, you don't finish saying it until the very last word.

It's your gift, or knack. Your very own personal incarnation of physical magic.

Hmmmm. Maybe that's why I get such a kick out of it. =)
