Mila annual revisions since 2016

Since 2016 I’ve attempted this big art piece of five to six characters (depending upon the iteration), but every time I was unsatisfied with how it was coming along. Especially with the characters. I’ll be redrafting the background and hopefully create a more attractive setting.

Story Tip?

A not necessary component of stories, but an important aspect of a storytelling, are stories that exist outside, in some capacity, of social restriction.

That is to say, whatever social conventions and taboos that exist within the author’s residence, this content extends beyond it’s boundaries. They might carry with them turbulent contentious thoughts from the readers, but are in no way less important or less artistically viable.

Things such as homosexuality, if within a society where it is persecuted, should be contained within a work if pertinent. Other socially shamed sexual interests, unapproved hobbies, philosophies and so forth can be expressed in numerous ways through literature. Authors ought to bring forth concepts that mightn’t be approved by their surrounding society, and if done correctly can afford such a society a perspective and awareness of sides of reality that they reject or of which are ignorant.

This extends to all prohibited activity, be socially or legally, and the significance of it be illustrated through the work itself. These are important due to the potential complacency and atrophy that many people undergo when they parrot and blanket themselves within the social system. When no critical thought is produced and one is merely a mirror, stories that exist outside of the social architecture can jostle the reader into creative and critical meditation.

An often forgotten, or intentionally ignored aspect of stories by many is that content of a story is something that often exists outside of the artist themselves. Characters and scenarios, relationships and ideologies, can be numerous and be expressed through an array of characters that don’t necessarily reflect an author’s personal interests or otherwise.

Misfortune and Unfortunate Endings 

So, this here is a bit different from what I post. But, I find the stories of the Fallout series to be of excellent fun and drama. The universe is interesting and has inspired some of the facets of my own writing and world-building. So, I figured since I’ve taken the time to take these photos to share them! Perhaps they will be inspiring to writers who might see them.

I promise(ish), this sort of entry will be sparse–but Fallout 76 has been inspiring to some capacity for my own stories. To write side stories where things don’t go well, where people commit suicide, fail, are betrayed, eaten and other misfortunes. Adding side-stories characters come across–or hear from other secondary and significant characters are important. They highlight the potential end any of the protagonists could meet. That any of their lovers of friends could also meet horrific and miserable ends.

Misfortune and Unfortunate Endings 


In the corner of your eye; between moments

Hidden behind the thinnest veils

Tenuous snowfall melts; outside your grasp


Never known ’till you find yourself lost

In an ephemeral spring none can find

In an untravelable extradimensional space


Crumpling within a world beneath your body

A descent that leads you outside yourself

In an oxygenless zone you traverse bare

An evanescent venture; without proof
