2018 April/May/June Update:

As you know, most of the year I publish 2 to 3 articles a day.

However, every year during convention season, I take a break from that to go full swing CosPlay.

From early April 2018 to late June 2018, article posting schedule will be sporadic, while CosPlay Season and Convention events are going full swing.

During this time period, you can expect most, possible all new articles to be focused on costume making, CosPlay, and the characters I'm CosPlaying.

UPDATE: It's now divided into 7 pages. The primary page "Meet Avallach" is now over 20,000 words long. At this rate, it'll cross 60,000 long before the costume is finished, and that's not including the other 5 pages. The primary page has now crossed 60,000 89,000 words and counting, the whole set of Avallac'h pages are now more than 200,000 words long, and more then 500 pictures of Avallac'h and his friends have now been uploaded on these pages, plus there are now 400+ hour-long videos f the costume making process as we record live, every second of this insanely elaborate, over the top CosPlay project.

As of May 19, just 29 days to PortCon we are embroidering his blue coat in a countdown against the clock to finish in time for the event, while we pray that The Dazzling Razzberry will be re-weilded back together and drivable in time for PortCon, after it's recent vandalism by Old Orchard Beach's ever growing Ku Klux Klan problem.

There will still be daily updates, but the BULK of the daily updates will be limited to the pages linked here:

  1. The Avallac'h CosPlay: Who is Avallac'h?
  2. Obsession: Meet Avallac'h
  3. [NSFW] Avallac'h & His Nude Women | Witcher 3 Game Screenshots
  4. Historical Accuracy vs Avallac'h (to go live later this summer)
  5. The Avallac'h CosPlay Costume Making Vlogs (will go live AFTER finishing the costume)
  6. How To Make The Avallac'h CosPlay (will go live AFTER PortCon)
  7. How Much Did It Cost? ($800+ will run to around $3,000) Budgeting The Avallac'h CosPlay (eing written as the costume is being made, will go live after completion of the costume)
  8. Why do children CosPlay rapists & rape victims? & WHY Avallac'h is a M18+ character. 
  9. PortConMaine 2018
  10. On Being a Handicapped CosPlayer: A Look At Events of PortConMaine 2017 That Resulted In 3 Disabled CosPlayers Getting hurt at The Convention and How These Things Could Have Been Avoided


After PortCon Update:

PortCon 2018 is over... but the making of the Avallac'h CosPlay is not. It is not possible to make a costume as detailed as I'm making in fewer then 400 hours, and only 129 hours went into the simplified first run version you saw at PortCon'18. The complete version will not be seen until PortCon'19

If you want to see this costume in person and watch it's progression onward as I continue to expand it... I'll be wearing it at the monthly Maine Association of CosPlay Enthusiasts (M.A.C.E.) events, throughout 2018 and 2019, you are welcome to join us. The list of current events can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/293470827423558/events/ This list is updated monthly, so be sure to check back often to find all the dates, locations, and details of events.

Writing dares

If you've ever done NaNoWriMo, you know there exists a tradition known as "The Dares Thread", and you also know that for 10 years, I've been posting dozens of daily updates with hundreds of wild, scatterbrained dares that seemingly came out of no-where. Well, here is where they came from. I created them using this random generator.

(If you are wondering why the Dare Thread is so very lacking this NaNoWriMo - it's because on FBI orders, I am not posting my annual daily/hourly Dares - 1,440 Dare posts posted every October and November since 2004 - 24 posts a Days, one each hour, for 60 Days, with up 21 Dares per post.)

The Dare Generator is a code with 5,000 options, each option with at least 50 sets of additional 100 item sub options each set. It is estimated to contain more then 50 million writing prompts, specifically designed for the Yaoi Bizarro Dark Fantasy genre. In 12 years it has yet to spit out a duplicate writing prompt. 

To date, this generator has given me a grand total of 53,784 Dares, all of which were posted on the NaNoWriMo Dares Thread between 2004 and 2012. 

I'm making it live (September 23, 2013) so, now you can create your own Dares all year long without having to wait for me to post the results on the NaNoWriMo website any more. Enjoy!

FAQS: What exactly is A writing dare?

Writing dares were created in the mid-1980s by the Writer's Digest publishing group. A writing dare is a tool used to help writers get past writer's block. To use them, you simply do this:

Find a dare that DOES NOT match the plot, theme, or character goals of your story, and add it to your story, thus forcing your characters to encounter things they otherwise would not have encountered and do things they otherwise would not have done.

The goal is to take the dare and push past writer's block by writing WHATEVER the dare tells you to write, no matter how insane it may be or how contrary to your story plot, theme, or character goals it is.

What the writing dare does, is force you to keep on writing, even when you can't think of anything else to write or don't know what is going to happen next. It doesn't have to fit your story, because the goal is quite simply to keep on writing. Simply writing through the writer's block until, you write your way back into the story and are able to move on past the writer's block episode.

This particular Dare Generator was based off the Seventh Sanctum Generator created by Steve Savage in the mid-1990s.

It was designed specifically for use with The Twighlight Manor series (a series about blood thirsty Space Elves trapped on Earth and living in a flesh eating sentant haunted house.) This generator is responsible for the wild insanity you see written on the pages of The Quaraun Series, which is written entirely by asking the Dare Generator to spit out what scene I should write next.

If you are writing a serious or realistic or mainstream genre, the prompts here are probably not going to be helpful to you.
