My new Cartoon Fat Duck debuted last weekend at Channel 101 to a cheering crowd. Though it got last place in votes, it got a huge, vocal and mostly positive reaction from the audience, more so than any of my cartoons screened prior. Not trying to raise your expectations too high here, just saying, it was a good end to a half-way shitty week.

Okay, so, the usual content warning. I can't post it here 'cause it contains some things frowned upon by Deviantart's posting policy, so expect some bodily functions that might be considered NSFW. But hey, you're not afraid of that kinda stuff. My watchers are brave. They can't be hurt by things merely seen through a screen. Give it a whirl, and hate me later.

Go ahead click the link below, and then we'll talk about it.

Haha, it caused a rather painful reaction that left me gasping for air.
It was nonsensical, to me, at least, and that was funny.
What made you come up with this? I began writing recently, and want to learn about writing on impulse and writing whatever I'd like.

Well, sir. Do just that. Write on impulse. Write whatever you like. But then go back and craft it. Make sure there's story beats, make sure it remains entertaining, and the characters are believable. Read anything you can about writing and story structure, but then apply it to whatever insanity you'd like.

The biggest thing I can say about writing on impulse is that you can always go back into what you've already done and craft it into something else. Part of that is learning to sensor/edit yourself after the words are already put down, as oppose to before.

Oh, yes. Writing on impulse has progressed the story I've been writing for a comic well, but it only really happens after a hard day, and often needs a dickload of editing afterwards. I've managed to craft a somewhat complicated universe, sounding kinda like a religion.

I've had to remove ridiculously long strings of cursewords before, if that's what you mean.

Sometimes, I have trouble writing on impulse or editing things out, because, y'know, I see this story like it's my child and I don't want to fuck it up. I assume it's pretty good so far, I've managed to attract 2 great artists to illustrate my script.

The whole cartoon was just just weird and confusing, but then that last line kicked in and I laughed my ass off xD

And you know what? I'm not gonna report this, I'm sick to fucking death of DA staff refusing to observe and follow their own goddamn rules, I've spent way too much time trying to help them out, and they don't give a shit.
So fuck them, +1 to you!
