So I'd like to talk about the following subjects in the next few weeks in this thread:
- Part 1 - The challenge of writing more than 43.000 words in English as a non-native speaker and fanfic writer rookie
- Part 2 - One way to work with your illustrator to get the images you've dreamed of and how to integrate them into your pdf
- Part 3 - When your ego and earth collide... or what to expect from your readers and how to ruin your day with statistics
- Part 4 - What would I do different if I would write another SWAT Kats fanfic story
It will also include some SPOILERS. So if you consider to read my story, you should do this first before continuing reading this thread.
If there is something you like to add to my thoughts or if there is something you disagree with, I invite you to reply to my posts in this thread.
But before I start I want to thank Jan Rathje for taking the job as my illustrator for War Games and Felony for pointing me in the right direction when I was looking for help to get this illustrated fanfic online.
I also want to thank MoDaD once again for setting up the War Games website and promoting it through the social media channels (not to mention answering my requests and listening to my whining after the release which was probably a bit annoying sometimes ). It means a lot to me that War Games is on display in the header of the encyclopedia of swatkats.info together with Nova Squadron and Punch it!.
And finally I want to thank Kooshmeister for having an interesting personal message discussion that actually triggered this retrospection.
