    Finally done with 2nd and 3rd chapter of my second volume!!! (Beta version). And yet, I’m still no where near the arc’s completion. I may seriously need to split off the arc into separate volumes. Oh well, I guess I have to keep writing and see how things go:)

    • Kudos! I’ve had the second volume of Square One already finished like 2 weeks ago. I put it on the back burner since I don’t want to release them literally right after each other. I’m thinking 2 months in between each. Also, I have a good method for story arcs. I’m making an episodic manga about nanobots and I’m trying to keep at least 1 and a…[Read more]

      • Wow… you are fast! Are you sure you are not some hidden disciple of Kazuma Kamachi?! I really feel so slow… sobs…

        • I’ve kind of disciplined myself ever since my freshman year of college. I didn’t remember, but I did watch Bakuman during that year and their determination (Although exaggerated because of anime) kind of made me determined. Since then, I’ve been working on drawing and writing speed, hoping to become part of shonen jump. Even though now I know…[Read more]

    @byakugan-amr Hi Byako, can I ask you for a favour? Could you read the third chapter of my second volume to see if I did not go overboard. The chapter is about magical weapons where I get to introduce the various classes and where the Main Character gets to choose his weapon. It’s still in beta form so do expect some grammatical errors.

  • @sora-hana @thaddeus @javon-sankoh Finally, I got all my files and everything sent to Vic for my publication. Now, I can finally join the REAL rivalry against RestartXDays and The Everlasting! Bakuman Light Novel Edition hype!

    • Good job, @weebmetalorange! I hope Vic accepts your novel proposal. Your novel will probably sell well. Which reminds me, I should read so that I can give you my opinion! What is it called?

      • Square One πŸ™‚ Its already accepted. When Vic accepts a novel, he emails you asking for the book files after you sign a contract. I just sent in those book files so now I just have to wait for a preorder window

        • Oh, nevermind, then that’s great! So, that’s how the process works 😕 Okay, I’ll read Square One and give you my review 👍

    • Nice. I’m still not confident of how I market my novel though… got any ideas? Marketing was the hardest part in terms of self publishing πŸ˜€

      • Well, the first thing that came into mind would be having a ton of books to follow-up. I mean this through two ways. First, having a book series will keep people hooked into your story. The more volumes you have, the higher the chance of consumers not dismissing your story at first glance. This applies greatly when there are positive reviews over…[Read more]

        • Thanks for the words of wisdom! I know that wasn’t directed towards me 😅 but what you said was very useful. To show you my appreciation, I’ll read Triple Orb Academy and tell you my thoughts on it 😉

          • Thanks, like wise with you. Boy you sure are getting busy, 7 chapters? I need to reserve some time for some solid reading lol

            • Actually, only the 1st chapter is legit. I’m scrapping the others 😅 That’s what happens when you rush plot and don’t have much knowledge. I’m currently working on the second chapter. I would still appreciate it if you could read it when you get the chance. I’m still an amateur so it would nice to get tips from an expert like how to express emotions

        • Thanks for sharing the knowledge. I honestly have the same idea. Right now, I’m planning to release a double series. Infinite Days will be the published while X Days will be a webnovel. Since the story is related, I just hope that once my readers liked the webnovel, they’ll also have the urge to purchase the published novel. Nevertheless, the…[Read more]

    • All the best! Looking forward to getting my hands on a copy:)

    I really hope that I did my research correct. I did not study chemistry, and now I need to write about Uranium and radioactivity in my story. This can be a nightmare if you don’t get the facts right.

    @weebmetalorange Hi Shafiek, here’s my feedback for Square One Vol 1☺

    Overall, it’s a professional piece of work. I don’t think you have to worry about the publication.

    Language:
    Language is straight 10/10 with minimal to no errors of any sorts. In fact, your chapters are so clean that you really make me envious.

    Story prese…[Read more]

    • I totally agree with your review! The story was indeed supposed to take a more light hearted turn for the first volume. I wanted something that would just introduce the characters and dynamics so if it did that, the volume accomplished its goals. I agree, I didn’t leave much room for volume 2. In truth, I wasn’t planning on making a volume 2…[Read more]

    @weebmetalorange Wendy Natsuki, tsk, tsk, tsk, of course, every story has to have a loli. I’m really enjoying this. We should really compare our notes.

    • Gotta bring that loli fan art in, ya’ know? Fun fact: Wendy Natsuki was supposed to be the main character of this light novel! However, I felt like having her do insightful thinking would be mostly unbelievable at her age so Akari was made the main character. That also made the ratio of male to female members of Agito Karasu 1:1.

  • Strovist posted an update 1 week ago

    @weebmetalorange I don’t care how you do relationships in your story, but I’m shipping Akari and Suzuko

  • Strovist posted an update 1 week, 5 days ago

    Omg, give it a rest! Spectre or Specter? Make up your damn mind auto-correction!! You know what, I’m using the British dictionary, so I am just going with Spectre.

  • Strovist posted an update 2 weeks, 2 days ago

    Sigh… the pain of not being able to write all your ideas out immediately without compromising the fluidity of language and the grammar. Darn it… stuck on a single part of the chapter that demands a lot of explanation. I wish I can finish this chapter anytime soon…

    • I have a tip. See, I’m making a manga series that revolves around nanobots and the thing is that I need to explain a lot in a chapter. I don’t want it to look like info dumping or anything of the sort. So my idea was to basically break it up throughout the chapter. Sure the chapter might be longer, but a continuous explanation would bore the…[Read more]

    @thaddeus Finally posted my prelim review for TOA πŸ˜€

  • @byakugan-amr@sora-hana @thaddeus Does anyone ever get those moments where you scrap one story for another one? Im the type of person who frequently switches stories and cant stick to one when Im writing. This is a survey question since this is something Im gonna touch upon in Square One Volume 2 so any response and explanations would be much appreciated.

    • Ah! The manifestation of the dilemma! I’m sure we all experienced this one way or another. I supposed it depends on the person’s frequency in getting into the writing mood, and it is entirely dependent on the inspirational materials he/she would encounter on the daily basis. Since you are researching this for Square One, I’ll do you the favour of…[Read more]

    • Oh. That is a very interesting issue when it comes to us… Well, here is my personal experience:

      I am the type who don’t want to drop my stories. Since I love multiple genres, it’s hard for me to write something if I’m not in the mood for it. e.g. there’s an instance that I want to write psychological strategic stories, also, there are times…[Read more]

    @byakugan-amr Hi Byako, how are you? I got your book on UK kindle Amazon. It’s really looking great, and I left a customer review. Hopefully amazon will pass my review and help you get more readers. Cheers!

  • Strovist posted an update 1 month ago

    @sora-hana Pre-ordered your book on Amazon.uk. Should be able to view it on my kindle app by 27th June:)

    • Big thanks friend :D. The published story was actually Infinite Days. On Infinite days, the main character will be Yuzuru instead of Kaido :D. I am actually planning to release the X Days as a web novel as a form of marketing πŸ˜€
