Daily Blog #118: I DON'T THINK I CAN DEW EET Q_Q

Konnichiwa minasan. Watashi wa tako ja nai.

@u@ We were at my brother's house for D&D today. We sneaked into a castle and fought a goblin.
And that's basically it. XD
I was shooting an arrow at the goblin, and I rolled a 20, which is a critical hit. So I got to roll again, and got a 19. And then I rolled two d8's, and got a 6 and an 8.
So. Yeah. He died.
About six times over.
XD

For those of you who are wondering how I got the texture on the picture I posted yesterday:
I used a sort of stamp-thing that looks like... I don't know, cobwebs, or whatever it looks like to you, with the airbrush tool and a light grey color. And I spread that all over the picture.
As always, the program was GIMP.

I keep making typos. I dont think I can type right now. XD
Oh, wait. //moves lamp so that I can actually see what I'm doing/ Much better.

So... Should I write or play Pokemon?
Both, I guess.
What should I write?
Maybe Zodiac Fearslayer.
I wish I could get myself motivated to draw Alpha/Omega. Seriously.
I told someone I would try to get it started again by the end of this month, though. When I tell someone I'm going to do something, that usually motivates me a whole lot more to do it XD
Sigh... If it weren't for Pokemon Y, I'd probably be working on Alpha/Omega right now. >_<
Oh well.
More storyline has been coming into my head. QwQ It's so beautiful. And awesome. And, well, some of it is sad. But then it's happy~
I wish I could just write it in book form. Because it's WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY faster than drawing it in manga form. Q_Q But I already decided that the manga would come before the book. You want to know why? Because if I write the book, everyone will know the story and I'll no longer have any motivation to do the manga. None. I know this because I started writing the book form of Ever-Present Dreams before I started the manga, and now it's like... Psh. I would never make a manga of it now. I just can't.
It's sad. oAo
Eventually, though, everyone will know the story of Alpha/Omega~
I'm sure it won't take much longer than ten or twenty years.
:D

//faceplants and sobs on the floor/

THREE books I have to draw. Three. Alpha/Omega will be a trilogy, as you should know by now as I've said it a couple hundred times.
THREE OVERSIZED MANGA.
That's like...
Ok, I just did a calculation.
In all, it could be about 4,500 to 7,000 pages.
Oh, wow.
Ok.
This isn't going to work.
...
Can I draw this much?
I really don't know.
I hope I can.
I don't know.
Q_Q
This is seriously scaring me. I might not be able to do it.

I'm depressed now.

I just did another calculation. If it ends up being 2,000 pages long, and if I drew 10 pages a month-- which, everyone knows I don't do that much-- it could take me around 10-20 years to finish.
o_O
Wow. So, I was actually right when I said ten or twenty years a few paragraphs ago...

I really can't do this. Even if I continue to have motivation for that long-- which, I might, but I really don't know--
I wouldn't be able to keep Alpha/Omega stuck in my head for so long. I would either explode or go insane. This story needs to be on paper and read by SOMEone.

My motivation for it is only going to go down, I think. And as you probably know, I've been working on it since June and have less than 30 pages.

THEREFORE:

I'm considering focusing on the book version instead. This way, the entire trilogy could possibly be finished in about 2-5 years.
BUT
I might not ever draw the manga version. All of my motivation might just disappear. I've had this experience, so I know-- if I write the book form, I may not be able to make myself do the manga form.

So, just warning you-- and, if I could have any opinions or suggestions, please say something.

Thanks~
