Firstly – I am working on Pomp and Perspicacity’s next chapter, and my goal is to get it out soon. Hopefully it will be this week or next week. I have hit the ‘clicking’ point where writing it is essier. The tl;dr for this post is that I’m planning to focus more on larger projects as opposed to one off lewds for a while, so new story post frequency may drop for a few months.
So I have posted a new story pretty much every week for two years. I enjoy getting feedback from people, and I love the dopamine rush of getting likes, but I want to focus on my other projects that I have open. In general I was trying to do a weekly ‘quick’ story and a longer story over time. The idea is I get those sweet dopamine hits from views and I get my longer projects out.
Sadly, what’s happened is that the ‘quick’ stories ain’t really so quick, and so in a given week I spend three or four days writing the quick story, one day relaxing, and two or three days on the longer project.
The issue is it’s taking a while to finish bigger projects, and stories are piling up, and I think the one-offs, while sometimes popular and successful, are not getting the attention that I need. It is time to take a step back, even if my view counts drop.
The funny thing is, even as a micro-celeb (very micro), you still aren’t immune to the fear of losing readers. I like having readers. It’s amazing. That ultimately is what worries me; if I stop posting weekly, I’ll lose readers, and people will wander off and never come back. I hope that doesn’t happen, but to be honest I think I need to recalibrate in order to produce good quality and get some passion back into writing. Plus my good friend Victor really wants to work on his writing, and I want to help him with that, since I think he can really grow as a writer (despite being a corn-syrup drinking retard).
I will post one-off lewds still, but I want to be slightly more deliberate about it. I think the quality will increase and I can do more involved projects. The most fun time I was writing was when I was basically just writing whatever I wanted without caring much about deadlines.
