Writingining iningining

Wow. Sometimes you don’t even realise how long you’ve done something until you start having a lot of it.


Arctic Gale is now over 90 (word) pages! It’s still a far cry from finished, or from a KS path, but damn; next weekend I could possibly get into triple digits.

I also think, in some ways, that this is the end of the current “Act” – maybe Act 2, or Act 3. It’s a little harder to think of these things, however those of you that are reading should hopefully feel a shift in where things are going.



It also marks 20 complete chapters, although they appear to be, on average, shorter than the 2000-ish words that made up the scenes in KS. I’m sure that this will change though when I go back and polish everything up.


I’m also now in a quandary, because I have either unintentionally or subconsciously opened up a possibility that I didn’t really want to look into. For those of you that are actually reading the story I will say no more, but please feel free to conjecture in the comments on the page.


Anyway, here is a photo from my balcony. You can clearly see the reduction in the brightness of the sky between the two rainbows, which just happened to occur at the “Golden Hour” minutes before sunset.

  1. Hi! For some reason within my knowledge I managed to stumble upon your blog, and let me tell you this: I love all of your entries, they are all so full of life and sincerity, they are quite enjoyable to read; also I like your photos.
    I must admit that I am yet to read Artic Gale, but I loved your job on KS, so I’m looking forward to read your story whenever I find some more free time.
    Having said all this, I just want to wish you good luck with AG and I hope I get to read more of your nice blog entries in the future. Have a nice day!

    1. Thanks for reading, and I hope that you get something out of Arctic Gale.

      As a work and idea, it pre-dates Katawa Shoujo by about 18 months, but I liked it enough to start it again.

      Thanks for your support, and please feel free to comment anywhere you’d like!


    1. sorry, I had written an answer for this but it didn’t post for some reason.

      The normal things are the Opera House, Ayre’s Rock/Uluru and the Barrier Reef. The problem is that they are all in different parts of the country.

      Sydney and Melbourne are both big enough cities to have most of everything that could be interesting,like theatres, tours, historical buildings, food and drink.

      Brisbane and Adelaide are much more… non-events, and Darwin and Perth are practically non-existant unless you have a specific reason to visit.

      Usually most people come for the beaches and the quick access to bushlands.

      So I suppose it is what you ar einto.

  2. On an unrelated note, I asked you several weeks ago if you watched currently airing anime, and you said that your work gets in the way.

    What about books? Do you read any of the popular series that are out now…let me phrase that differently: are you not as big a reader now as you were when you were younger?

    1. I still read a lot, but it is mostly non-fiction. I have recently been reading a lot about cognitive bias, and am now reading Schumpter’s “Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy”
