I suppose it's time for me to review my own book.
TLDR: In a nutshell, it has potential, and lots of it. If worked on correctly, it could become huge. Believe not in what it is now, but what it will be in the future.
Sadly, I seem to be the obstacle that stands in its way. I will do my utmost best to remedy that, and can only plead for your patience.
The writing quality is very subjective. It might seem good to some, and trash to others. The only way for you to know is to read it for yourself and decide afterwards.
Stability of updates, hmm, that's a foreign concept to me, at least for the time being. I try to keep up 2 chapters a week, but I'm in a tough, transitional spot in my life right now, which demands my time and attention, lest I risk becoming a NEET. When it comes to my frequency of updates, I can only ask for forgiveness.
Story development is something that will take time, and this novel will be quite long. If you as a reader wish to stick around and observe the story throughout its growth, I can guarantee you'll have a good time. If you lack the patience to deal with my sorry self, then you may move on. I won't blame you.
Character design, huh? I've got a lot of juicy things planned, and if you stay long enough to see them, you'll know that it was worth it. It's one of the things I'm looking forward to the most, and I hope you will too!
World background, most likely the bread and butter of this novel, honestly. I've got a fantastic world to showcase and explore with all of you, but once again, that will take time and patience.
If anyone has read this far, I have one last message:
Our main characters are blank pieces of paper at the start.
They are young, illiterate, and just waiting to be dyed with the colours of the best and worst that the world has to offer. They may seem to lack personality, and the story lacking depth/meaning, but wait till I get to show what's in store for all of your eyes.
Essentially, the books seems to be simple now: Sunshine, rainbows (though I haven't written any in), happy smiles and occasional tantrums. There has been no real problems or suffering. Yet.
The story will grow in complexity and depth as the characters age, and they experience new things. As the world they know grows, so will their horizons. As they mature, so will the novel, I will only give a few stanzas lacking any rhyme whatsoever, that will allude to the structure of the story, and the characters.
A childhood so blurry, so lacking in awareness, so forgotten.
Teenagers who can fight, laugh, cry, and scream all at once, dying the world with their colours, as the world dyes them in return.
Young adults who discover the world around them, seeing it for the first time, as what it has been, what it has always been, and what it will become. Who are they, really? What are their morals? What is truly right? And who should they ask, when there is no one who knows?
Adults who struggle, who mourn, who carry out their duties, but where are their dreams in the midst of all this? Deceased. They live, they laugh. They weep, they are depressed. Two sides of the same coin that is life. Where does one go, when all they see in front of them is death and destruction, and they are the cause?
Well, that was my honest review, based on how satisfied I am with the current 25/???? chapters of the story.
