The above is a sketch of our protagonist’s best pal, Neeja Uro. This character is definitely a foil to our hero Oriole; she’s confident, self-assured, and outspoken. If our main character wanted to make her life easier, she’d listen to everything this gal had to say—but then we wouldn’t have a story now, would we? 🙂
So, Episode 1 is way longer than I thought it was going to be 😅, but since this Episode is an introduction to our main character Oriole, the set-up needed to be pretty significant. It was important that readers understand her misbelief, all the problems affecting her work, home, and relationships, and just how much of a mess her life really is. Most importantly, the goal she thinks will make her life better–and what she is doing to actively try to achieve that goal throughout the story. It’s a lot I know, but I hope it’ll make the story that much more worth it.
The entirety of Episode one will drop for free this May.
