hello gamers! dropping a quick Visual Novel Project update here!

over the past month and a half i've made a tiny bit of progress! the timing on my initial VN announcement ended up being a little silly bc afterwards i Immediately dumped all my focus into redesigning this website. and then after finishing the redesign i immediately went on a short vacation LMAO

but hey! all that stuff's out of the way now so i should have more time to focus on my VN!!
so far i've mostly made progress with designing the game's textbox (and in-game menu)

woaw, look at that first real attempt at a General Layout. ultimately i didn't like how spread out everything was, and i thought it might be annoying for the reader to have to look down at the bottom left each time to see the character's name

also people who regularly do coding have my infinite respect. figuring out how to reposition Any Individual Element made me want to burst into tears but i've been sooo strong and brave

and here's where im currently at with the textbox! i still need to figure out the colors and adjust a couple minor things, but overall i think im satisfied with what i got! graphic design is not my passion but as long as the text is easily legible and the menu buttons are Hopefully intuitive then i think this design should be more than serviceable!

that's all i got to share so far! i know a Textbox Update isn't the flashiest thing in the world but golly if it ain't honest work

hello and welcome to my "first" blog post (real OGs remember when this site had a blog for the first five seconds of its life)

im not compelled to blog really much at all, but i figured i could use this to post quick progress updates on whatever projects im currently working on. which means! you don't have to depend on my social media for those kinds of updates anymore! another win for Personal Website Independence!

i've been a bit silent online for the past few months, but that's just bc i've been slowly working on a new personal project and haven't really had anything shareable from it yet :^) but uhhh i've been writing! i got the first draft of this thing done!

this is my first time using Scrivener and now i understand why all my writer friends love this software. imagine being able to write but Also... Keep Everything Easily Organized?? wild concept

well, that's literally all i've got to share so far. rest assured that I Am Working On Something

(also, you can right click on blog images and open them in a new tab to see them at their full resolution. not the most exciting image here to test that out on but y'know the images work better now)
