READING VS WRITING

For the longest time, I have always been more of a writer than a reader. However, I am taking advice from several of my teachers. The best writers gain their inspiration from reading other books. For some time, I felt like something was missing in my writing. I will do more reading to see if I can find some way to refine my craft more than ever before. Wish me luck!

OPERATION: RED DRAGON (PROLOGUE)

1733238816

I started reading Operation: Red Dragon and I am already impressed with what I have read. In the first few pages, I was presented with all kinds of Kaiju. Some were giant reptilian dinosaurs, some were giant scorpions, some slept inside of mountains, some were pterosaurs and insects the size of helicopters, some were leathery sea monsters, and a few were colossal fire-breathing flying beasts that could eclipse the sky. In addition, there have been clues to a mysterious flying craft that was present at each of these Kaiju attacks. It hasn’t even been the first chapter yet and already the plot is thickening fast. I look forward to any new developments as I continue to read.

KAIJU DURABILITY

Apart from their size and strength, one of the most iconic Kaiju abilities is their immunity to conventional weapons from bullets to bombs. Not even nuclear weapons can harm them because it would only make them even more powerful as they absorb the nuclear radiation. The secret to a Kaiju’s immense durability has ranged from either a very thick hide, fast regeneration, or a personal force field that shields them from harm. In my revised Kaiju story, I developed a way to explain how a Kaiju can acquire all three elements as parts of its durability.

SKETCH ILLUSTRATIONS

I am thinking of becoming my own illustrations for my revised Kaiju story. They will be sketches I have done myself. I thought this would be a good way to give my audience a better look at what I am envisioning as I write. Up until now, I thought my sketches were no good because they are not professional, but they are starting to grow on me. Among these illustrations will be some of the copyrighted concept art I drew for my Kaiju story.

KAIJU STORY EXPANSION (PART 2)

I have finished the fourth chapter of my revised Kaiju story and started the fifth chapter. It is definitely an improvement to the original and there are far fewer loose ends than there were before. Thinking back, the original version of the story was messy and had too many unanswered questions. Now, the story is tighter and the characters are better developed. I look forward to the final product and I will keep you updated on any further developments.

MY THOUGHTS (PART 13)

When I was in Middle School, I suffered a great deal of depression to the point in which I considered suicide multiple times. Thanks to the intervention and support of my parents, teachers, and therapist, I was able to overcome this depression and quelled any further thoughts about suicide. I am aware that depression can be a common symptom of being autistic, but I thought the suicide part was just something I had to deal with. Then the other day, I met a mother of an autistic boy who had the same troubled thoughts I had and I realized that more autistic people may have had suicidal thoughts like me and this boy. Fortunately, I do not have such dark thoughts anymore. Now, I acknowledge that life is worth living and I can accomplish much if I live long enough.

AN AUTISTIC CONNECTION

The other day, I met a mother of an autistic boy who suffered from depression and even contemplated suicide. I saw some similarities between myself and this boy so I recommended my therapist to this woman, who was desperately searching for someone who could help her son control his condition. Having gone through many of the struggles to mother described myself, I thought this would be a good way to contribute to the autistic community.
