    G5: Make Your Mark

    In the name of rest and recovery, I made some time in lieu of exercise and watched Make Your Mark yesterday. So, just like with G5 movie, here goes my incredibly irrelevant opinion on it:
    NON-SPOILERS:

    Here we drone again then.

    Pony town has been immensely helpful this time, since I had no inspiration regarding my own pixel style. So, I guess, we're starting at some point this week again. I wanted this to be a self-contained sequel, but so far it's proving absolutely impossible because... well, it'll be clear quickly enough.

    Well...

    I guess now's not a good time to have one half of my extended family in a warzone. Granted, I don't live there and I only met them a few times in my life, but yesterday I got a bit of... reporting from near Odessa. Not good, not good.

    MLP G5 Movie - opinion.

    Okay, so I just finished G5 movie and it's... tough to evaluate. First things first - I won't be spoiling the plot, because there already is pretty much none. If you watched the trailer, you will know how this goes. I'll start with my overall feeling about the movie, then point out the bad just to get it out of the way, and finally get to the good part which I think makes the whole thing

Chapter length question · 8:08am Aug 1st, 2019

So, now that I've put out 2 chapters, how are things with readability?

My original plan was to update monthly with long chapters like these two, but weekly-ish schedule of shorter chapters like in the previous book/s is a possibility as well. The faster updates happened mostly because I had some free time. So, now that you've gotten a taste of both formats, what do you think is better for exposure, readability, and something else I 100% forgot?

One thing that come to mind is that shorter chapters/more frequent updates mean more exposure on the front page. The big chapters mean more complete sets, which I don't know is a bonus, because it might look like the same amount of events, only taking more words to write. The exposure sucks with the long chapters, though, since I don't do any repeated group spam/promotions. I also genuinely can't evaluate which kind is better for the story.

What do you think? Short, frequent, and snappy, or long, thick, sweaty, zebra... I got carried away.

I don't know about everyone else, but I prefer long chapters...Heh, not many people from what I heard, do.

Perhaps do a longer chapter for the last two weeks of a month and two shorter for the first two weeks of a month? That way you can work on getting exposure without trying to cut down on the story's major events.

Welp, long it is.

I thought about it, then tried to split the two uploaded chapters as practice, and the cuts made absolutely no sense. I think I'll just have to forgo exposure and reader quantity. I guess it's okay, involvement is what matters anyway.
