WoooOOOoooOOOooo~

On this day I have been gazing into my crystal ball (Not really, those things are expensive...) and have, through much gazings and watchingness, come to a point of predictiating my own near future. Money issues will come to a head, and be resolved. Business matters are related, but also stand on their own as a partner lies in the future, but is not needed to move forward, nor should I sit waiting for said partner to appear and magically fix issues of drive or finance.

Anyone know that I'm part of a collective of soothsayers? I just don't like talking about it because it's better to learn most things as events unfold. lol

Always trying to keep an ear out for interested parties for serious projects that I can mesh with. If you think I might work well for such things drop a line. I'm easy to find here and elsenet.

Projects in general. I've flopped in the past few years, working on my own, trying to make video games, stories and comics. Decided to mostly try focusing on my art so I can keep moving in at least one direction, instead of picking up and dropping projects left and right, not really getting anywhere.

Almost all the projects have left some legacy of notes or files drifting around somewhere in my hard drives or filing cabinets, if not just floating in my head near enough to a stable point that it's almost hard wired into memory.

So like art-directed projects?

I can't say I have a very great mechanical grasp of visual arts... do have an alright grasp of many things literary. :o

Actual physical projects could be a little harder seeing how distances is a factor net-wise xD

Not as hard as folks think with the digital age. I've worked on small things before and found that it was sometimes easier to not have the guy I'm working with across the street.

It's been several years since I've had someone seriously bite and stay on for a project though. Even now when I get an interested party it winds up with more of a "Once you have things off the ground" mentality, like they're waiting for me to do all the heavy lifting on my own before signing on.

I wound up trying to learn multiple coding languages at once to try making an RPG with the last one I started getting anywhere on. Didn't get too far on my own, without an instructor, trying to keep up with life and making art. lol

yeh, i dont doubt that a lot of people turn fair-weather about work and the junk.

It's also trying to launch someone elses ambitions, not too many people are keen on doing that unless they've got a vested interest and many and more wont do it without pay :o

that said though, what sort of things would you be needing?

At this point I'm still loose on things. Dunno what'd be needed yet because I have no projects set up I can't pull off on my own right now.

Every time I throw a pitch out there I wind up getting a lot of half-hearted inquiries. I think I'm gonna be returning to the wait and see method I've had in the past with seeing if any pitches come my way instead of burning time waiting for someone else to bite.

On that though, I've played around with so many formats and setting types that I'm pretty well geared to jump into almost any territory story-wise.

Heh, hmm...

Well, this seems a little halfhearted in its own rite, you should do that grunt work so when you go to enlist people you can better lash them into production. c:

by and large people dont work on their own for various reasons. :o

(LONG MESSAGE IS LONG)

Aye, but I also have a standing record of pulling people in that try to dominate the project and treat me like hired help instead of a creative partner if they are actually driven. They didn't like when I lay down the law and state exactly how much of a creative property I own when they start saying my thoughts didn't matter, in many more words, usually a long winded lecture.

I have a long list of things that go wrong with partners on a project. A few were my fault, but by and large it usually boils down to issues with the other side and me trying to either get them focused or get them to not be a prima donna and realize they aren't the only creator on a project.

I've already done a good deal of heavy lifting on the creative end in many directions, but need someone willing to work, that sees a partner as a partner, not an slave or an employee. Someone that is creative and can work well with others, taking turns at the wheel and drawing the map on a project. A rare thing among creative types, as ego tends to become a bit inflated when an artiste doesn't have anyone to keep them humble. Wish more could meet some of the folks I have. Pretty damn humbling to meet some of the real stars of the art world, who shall go unnamed because I hate having people try raising the BS flag on facts I lived through.

That seems like a tough thing to find these days unless you've known a prospective partner for a while and, unfortunately, all the people I know that are like that are either flakes or too busy with other projects to work with me. I know how to find a few, but I'd be finding them at their lowest, and I need someone that isn't too fresh after being crushed under heel. Those folks tend to be drained and not as willing to step up creatively... -_-;

It might seem half-hearted, my approach, from the outside but I know other artists/writers, published ones, that have run into the same wall before. A few have even laughed over drinks and said how, "It seems history really does like to repeat itself, no matter which decade it is." ^_^;

The thing most don't get, or forget after starting a project with me is that I'm trying to create an independent project that MIGHT become printed/published/bound and sold by someone other than us. It's tough to break through, and it seems better these days to try working it yourself and see who bites in the various industries and possibly publish yourself if one of the nicer guys doesn't see you right away, rather than get looped into a sham of a contract and throw away your work for another to own for a pittance. Better to have the ball in your court than theirs. At least we have crowd sourcing to level the field a bit these days.

Think I'm starting to ramble a bit, but it is all on topic at least. lol

Knowing what's needed makes it tougher sometimes, and easier to get depressed, but it also speeds up the process of weeding out the troublemakers. I've had partners on projects before, but sadly, the ones that were most promising aren't around anymore because of problems that didn't end well. I've even, almost, had something go to print before, only to have trouble hunt me down and scare me away in a way that'll never happen again. I know what's needed in a partner, if not the project itself. I have a massive collection of information on a plethora of settings that can be built upon. The basement and foundation have been built, the structure above is what's needed. I am willing to start on a new foundation, if that's desired, and am willing to bring the riverbed of knowledge, I have so far, to pluck stones from to get things laid down solidly. That's a stone foundation analogy that seems a bit too abstract for some folks... heh

And all that text makes my ego seem bigger than it is. lol

Even with what I know, even with what's stored, even with the people I've met, the term getting off the ground will apply because a structure isn't built without lifting.

A lot of this stuff I'm more than well aware of. .-.

Yeh, it is super frustrating, I know a guy whose been writing his book for two years now and trying to get it published. *shudder*

if youre looking for writing partners, hit me up. :o If its something I find interesting I could be so inclined. c:

I can be a lot of those things. buuuut, if you argue enough I tend to concede... eventually. :3


ps: damn woman, that be a looooooooooooong reply.

Aye, I hit the text limit. lol

Also, I is of deh dude-like persuasion.

I'll have to see how I can organize myself after this coming rotation at work. Twelve hour shifts are hell for unrelated projects. Dunno how that'll go though with a slew of new and fun issues cropping up with my machine even as I type this. This thing is getting ridiculous.

Oh, dude persuasion is even better. C:

Well, gimme a primer on what you're trying to do and I'll see if it's not something I can get behind.

As it stands I think we get along decently enough :o

At this point, I just want a project to move on. I'm up for just about any setting type or subject matter. Got multiple fantasy and sci-fi settings prepped, with a few that are a touch of both. Can try working up a written or comic style project, but I'll be staying away from thoughts of games until either I learn to program better or find someone able and willing.

I'm mostly aiming for either a project that could be long or short term, but will not fall within the 'smut rag' type of storytelling some folks seem to expect of me. A project with actual story. Smut can happen down the line, but I'd like to try keeping it in the teen or lower rating category if at all possible.

A side project I've been playing with for a while now relates to multiple attempts with different media. Story, comic and game. I wind up revamping parts of the stories every couple of years, it seems, as I keep hitting a wall, and my storytelling style for each story seems to shift a little each time as well. Last time I took a stab at one of the stories I got told I was writing a bit like an old style gothic author in a modern setting. lol  None of the tellings have hit dirty territory as of yet, but hint toward sexuality at times.
