Delusions of Gothic by GrahamSym

To me, this is the kind of artwork that is often neglected for its seeming-simplicity. The concept of a vast structure, or megalith, a ...

Now, this is the sort of artwork I really feel drawn to. I'm not a huge sampler of the horror genre in writing - I find it exceedingly ...

Journal History


Now, as strange as it sounds even to me, I know there are people on this site that do read my work, and actually want me to continue uploading, but as of late that has rather clearly been delayed, due to a number of outside factors.

First thing's first: I haven't stopped writing. I don't think I will ever stop writing, or at least it'll take me some time. However, the stories I upload (All's End, Violet Era, Uncivil Union, AI & I) have all been slowed down significantly.

I don't need to cover All's End. People who follow me already know that's on hiatus until Violet Era is done or approaching that sort of state. Violet Era should therefore have no excuse, right? Well, true, but that's the way the chips have fallen.

When my workload gets to this point I have to start setting priorities for what I do. Personal requirements come first - this means that number 1 is schoolwork and university projects, and that has recently been...well, a lot. A 4000 word case study on a rather ephemeral subject, a presentation to seventy or so people in two weeks, and numerous coursework projects, as well as having to learn to draw properly. Dear god that last one is hellish.

My second priority then falls to other commitments to other people, in this case being the situation with Uncivil Union, AI & I, and a commission piece called Among the Distant Stars. Out of my own sense of fairness and in the latter case of payment, I have to look to the others as my major projects at this point. Hence why my solo work has dipped while collaborative work has picked up. I then appear to be putting less into these two both because some effort is drained into university, and some into the commission, which I don't feel is mine to release - it's a semi-commercial thing.

Then, rather obviously, AI & I has seen more activity because it's script, which can be produced faster, and concerns characters I've wanted to explore in detail for some time. That piece is currently on a very temporary hold while the other guy involved does something interesting, and we should be resuming in the not too distant future.

Uncivil Union has slowed for other reasons, foremost being that with so much else going on, I can't concentrate on its so readily, meaning it actually makes it harder for me to write, to think of the words and put them down. It's not necessarily an impact on what I get down when I do, but I just don't have the right frame of mind.

In short, things have slowed down, and they will pick up again in the future, everyone waiting will just have to be patient.

Check it out guys, that's me.
Wargamer, poet, novelist. Don't like sport, don't like parties, and that's the way I like it.

I'm a writer, plain and simple. At least, I think so. I've had people who love my work, and one who even likened it to Khaled Hosseini's Kite Runner. I'm a go-to guy for that sort of information, and if you want hints or advice for writing in prose, feel free to approach me. I'm happy to talk with anyone as long as you are polite, treat me with an appropriate amount of respect, and please try and use grammar. I don't like reading a continuous stream of writing with absolutely no punctuation to tell me where the sentence - if it indeed does - starts or ends; it hurts. Just...punctuate a little, when you talk to me, just so it sounds like I'm talking to a person, not a computer.

I'm not a friend-o-philic. I don't add you to my watch purely because you added me to yours. It doesn't work like that. I don't give people watches purely because they replied to a comment of mine. If you want me in your Watchers list, you need to have a gallery that mostly has things I want to look at. One piece is not enough to make me want to follow your deviations. I don't mind if you don't release regularly, but unless the art is consistently stuff I want to see, I might favourite the pieces I like, but not watch.

Now, honestly, if you read my stuff and don't like it, don't even bother flaming me for it. If you don't like it, don't read it - it won't affect you in any way whatsoever if you follow this simple piece of advice. If you enjoy my work, feel free to comment with any criticisms or favourite parts, but I won't accept things like "this sucks because it remotely deviates from the original." I want to make things clear: The things I write are for fun, they are often fanfictions or new ideas I have, so do not expect me to be evangelical about it.

Sometimes I come to blows with people about what art really is. I've had people who don't believe literature is a form of art, and some who will believe that anything is art. I believe that art is the soul, written or drawn or painted or whatever you do, into the piece and thus lain out bare. It is a riddle within the darkness and the grey and the light that only those who are true can solve, it is an impossible conundrum, the master paradox. It's truth, the expression of who we are. That is art.

And can someone please start showing people how to capitalise properly?…

Personal Quote: "Expect no equal resistance - to strike against me is to meet the harshest retaliation. Perhaps I will play a game, but sooner or later my words will slice through your tongue."
