Weekly Update #297: Character Backstories

My work on the outline for GENBA no Kizuna‘s penultimate chapter has continued, although this time around “outline” really isn’t the right term to use here. So far, I’ve actually fully written out chapter 4, with Keiichi‘s initial route more or less done. Once players have completed Keiichi‘s route, it’s about time to help the …

Over this past week, my work on the outline for GENBA no Kizuna has continued. For the first time, I shared the events of the second chapter with somebody else. Both Natsu and Kuna, actually. Getting their feedback was very useful, so today, I want to get into a little detail about that.

Weekly Update #293: More Outline/Writing Progress

With the “discussion” chapters done, I’ve spent this past week working on the outline for the “investigation” chapters and made quite a bit of progress. Once again, I would like to emphasize that, even though I use the word “outline” here, it’s actually a bit more than just that. I’m not just ordering a list …

Weekly Update #290: Writing Revelations

So, I’ve continued working on the outline for the final chapter of GENBA no Kizuna and it’s slowly taking shape. The problem with it is that, similar to SHINRAI‘s finale, the entire case needs to be wrapped up. All the mysteries need to be solved and the culprit needs to be exposed in one lengthy …

While continuing my work on the outline for GENBA no Kizuna, which mainly consists of structuring the final discussion/revelation of all the mysteries at the moment, I’ve ended up doing some more research on various topics. Research is always a very important aspect to me, when it comes to writing a story. Thus, I’ve decided …
