I wanted to ask you all how do you, personally, find your motivation? How do you stay focused on your work?
Back in 2018 I was working on a story with choice script called “The Soul of God” and it got a decent amount of attention, in fact it got over 700 clicks on my, looking back now extremely short and unpolished, demo. More than that, everyone in the comments were very supportive even in spite of the game being gender-locked and overall it was a delight to be around that thread, in my opinion. This served as a big motivator for me and the desire to see it through fueled me for a while!
However, as life ran its course, I found myself less and less motivated and I became very disapointed in myself when I saw all of those nice comments. At the end of the day, I gave up on the project and never really bothered to update anyone on it.
Now, dumb backstory over, I didn’t mean this little piece to be an attention grab or anything like that, it was more of a way to enlighten you all as to why I’m asking these questions. I want to get back into Choice Script, I even have a more fleshed out story ready to work with, and it is one I am very passionate about, but I am very scared the same mistakes of the past will come back. Obviously I’m a wiser man than I was before, but the thought lingers still.
I’m looking forward to your replies, and thank you so very much for taking the time to read this far, even if you decide not to reply! Love you all!
