She’s immedi-responded twice today….
This is looking less like someone wanting a writer and more and more like someone knowing exactly what they want written and just being too unmotivated and/or lazy to write it out themselves….
Hopefully we get away from this soon…
You want me to write, you have to give me wiggleroom. u_u
I can follow a guideline, but let me fill in the damn blanks.
I’m not sure Shelby’s ever actually written anything serious, let alone ever written with anyone else. I feel like I’m hand-holding a bit. It’s odd.
But I’m steadily getting her to reveal more plot and character details. I sent her a character sheet of questions I’ve pulled from…. I think it was called “The mother of all RP OC Character Surveys” or something like that. Anyways. It was like 20 pages and I cut it down to about six and a half. So she’s going to at least partially fill it out for the main characters.
I think we are going to call it Nightmare Nikki, so I’m rather excited about that.
….And I think she got that I was annoyed it took her so long to get back to me…. >.>;;; Woops.
With my last cocreator we were best friends, so writing, her writing and me drawing, doing anything creative together really, came very naturally to us.
We were sort of… soul mates on that front. Meant to work together as a team.
She had the steady calm to found the work on, and I had the creative energy to make new twists and turns and develop. We meshed very well.
Even when we’d introduce characters we hadn’t planned to have the other always intrinsically knew exactly how that character would act and feel and respond in any given situation. We just knew who that character was supposed to be, even if the other one had brought them in and the character had only had one line. We just knew.
It was sort of like… we knew what the other had characterized before they did? I guess? Think Jung’s collective unconscious, but only between two people.
Now I’m writing for Shelby….
I miss that.
I miss that so damn much.
I miss the eb and flow of working with someone who knows you and how your mind works so damn intimately…
Ugh. I know what I’ll be on about next Tuesday at my counselor’s.
Shelby got back to me. :)
I am….peeved that it took her two weeks, but glad she did.
Now to rely without sounding completely irritated (which probably just won’t happen tonight because I’m just in a shitty mood), fix up the chapter, and send her a revision.
I’m kind of annoyed now.
I try to always reply to emails in a courteous time. Like within 48 hours of the sent date. I think it’s kind of rude not to.
And the fastest way to get a hold of me is through facebook or tumblr.
Unless you know I have my hone on me, that is the worst way to get me. I leave Yukio all over the place and he’s usually on vibrate or silent. ~_~
Sorry for the mini-rant. It just drives me nuts. I’m really excited about this, and it’s her idea, so she should be more excited…. I think….
Be patient my little sister. ^.^ If she took a while responding to your last email, I’m sure that she’ll take forever responding to this.
Do you know how not patient I am, sir? :( Besides, who doesn’t check their email at least once a day?

I’m starting a mockup script for the webcomic~ Hopefully I’ll be able to send it to Shelby (my lovely artist) by tomorrow night. I’m SO excited.
I don’t know if she has a title yet, but I’ve affectionately been calling it “Nightmare Nikki” :3
I’m getting ahead of myself!
Gonna go write not, loves~
