Update Nov. 9, 2020: Writing Progress on Shadows and Stars

I managed to get three hours editing done on my first draft today. I really enjoy it. It’s great only refining the text but also making sure all the details sync together to minimize plot holes. So far I have edited 92 pages out of about 300. These are 8.5″ x 11″, 12 point, Times New Roman, single-spaced pages.

I hope to have the new Gillett edition of Nocturne out by this weekend. I may add a few public domain drawings to it.

Hasta Luego.

I am up late tonight. I don’t have insomnia per se at the moment, but I am only now starting to feel sleepy–and it’s 4:00 a.m.

I am, of course, surfing YouTube. I came across this gem of UCLA professor Richard Walter talking about how does someone know that he/she is good enough to be a writer. Even though he is talking specifically about screenwriting, I can relate to a lot of what he says.

Check it out.

„Peninsula“ (2020) — Testkammer

Filmkritik: Nicht nur der Oscarpreisträger „Parasite“ (2019) von Bong Joon-ho, der auch den Monster-Horror „The Host“ (2006) schuf, und die Arbeiten von Park Chan-wook wie „Oldboy“ (2003) zeigen, dass Südkorea erstklassiges Genrekino produzieren kann. Genauso fiel das Debüt „Train to Busan“ (2016) von Yeon Sang-ho auf, das zwar das Zombiegenre nicht neu erfand, aber perfekte…
