I usually don't vacation very well since I love my work. As much as I enjoyed the time there and the new things I saw, I missed work dearly, especially 5C.
Japan feels so familiar to me that it doesn't have the allure of a mysterious country yet it's still quite enjoyable! I went to Akihabara and got a cheap model in a second hand shop of a Toyota Hiace, and also got some Deleter paper for me to work on new pages with since its so cheap there.
In the next few days i will find out the next batch of work for me to work on. I have exhausted my funds and will start to work on paying work. This means 5C will be a on a bit of a hold which is not news to any of you.
Depending on the work load, I will open for commissions in the next month or so. Hopefully, i can save up enough to work on another 15 - 20 pages. I don't like the idea of switching between normal work and 5C since once I get in the mode, things become very clear.
I have been receiving a lot of compliments on the pacing and writing within the story and i find that truly flattering since none of my coworkers read or acknowledge me as one! If they saw how I actually piece this thing together and write it, they would cringe. I don't care too much about the professionals appreciating my work as much as you the fans liking it. If 5C goes completely under the radar or blows up, either way it will be written the way we like it.
I have a bunch of ideas that i had while I was in Japan, it seems every time i am forced to stop working on it, i end up seeing a lot of new things that widen my horizons and add to the story. After this post, i will start another few pages and review what i have plotted out of the next few pages.
I actually had a dream that I came across about 10 5C pages, was very interesting and gave me some new ideas!
I will get on it now, and will continue adding to the map as well! If your name isn't on there here's you second chance!
Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!
