This is an actual break day, from writing, posting and maybe even reading… So for the past week or longer, my eyes have been all screwed up. Basically, it’s eye-strain, from staring at a computer screen all day every day. It’s not really surprising, and this is probably the third or fourth time I’ve had this problem. Continue reading
Okay then~, it’s been a week since the last break-day, so for those of you(like me) who have trouble keeping track of time… Today/tomorrow, won’t have any chapters being released.
I’ve been kinda slow with writing lately, and have just barely managed to keep ahead by 30+ chapters. Anyway, I’m currently writing chapter 218, though I almost finished it :).
Aside from just telling people that there won’t be any releases tonight(It’s normally 8pm for me), I didn’t really have anything else to talk about. Here’s the “Donations” page link that I always give…
I suppose I could let people know that I don’t like being trolled, so don’t do that. It isn’t ‘constructive criticism’ to tell me that I’m a bad writer, or that you hate a character for some petty reason, or that you aren’t going to read my story anymore because of something that happens in the chapter you just read… Seriously, just don’t, I don’t care why you hate my story, I will delete any posts that piss me off; I literally don’t have the time nor patience to deal with the endless torrent of complaints that seem to spring up every day.
If you have something positive or nice to say about the story, good; that’s what authors like to read. We enjoy it when people say “Good job, thank you for the hard work.” Even if I can delete comments that are just really mean to me or rude, it’s still incredibly annoying, because I have to see that garbage and it completely ruins my writing speed.
I’m the type of person who was bullied a lot when I was younger. Honestly, everyone probably goes through some sort of bullying incident or phase in their lives; it’s just the way humans are. Probably why we relate so much to these xianxia characters who are treated like trash for no apparent reason, and eventually go on a rampage, getting their revenge lol. Of course, most of us aren’t homicidal psychopaths, so we have to settle for just getting over it and growing up. Also, it helps if you start working out like crazy and learning how to defend yourself. Bullies tent to pick on people who can’t fight back and avoid those who can: same thing with rapists, serial killers, and other such scumbags.
Now that the common-sense lesson is over with, I would like to thank all of the donors and patrons for their amazing support! I seriously wouldn’t be able to keep writing if it wasn’t for you guys and/or girls out there! 🙂 Everyone who enjoys “Hardcore OP-ness” should wholeheartedly thank them as well, because they’re the reason that I’m able to post 12 chapters a week for you to read.
Does anyone else remember this song? lol Dan Dan Kokoro Hikareteku
Like always, this is an early-warning notice that my break has finally arrived again lol. Basically, after the 2 new chapters go up in 5-ish hours, there’s going to be a 48 hour period before the next posts happen.
Aside from that, I can’t really think of anything else to say, so I’ll just give a link to the Donations page and remind people that I’m currently writing chapter 194.
My writing speed has been kinda slow the past few days because I started reading “I Shall Seal the Heavens” and because of that, I fell behind on “Against the Gods.” The new season of “Once Upon a Time” also started, plus “Peerless Martial God” has been updated like 15 times in the last few days. Sadly, “Tales of Demons and Gods” dropped down to 1 chapter a day :(: It’s still one of my current favorites though lol.
I haven’t even gotten around to reading the last 2 chapters of “Doulou Dalu” and I’m really far behind on a lot of other xianxia/LNs that I normally keep up with… but that has more to do with writing than reading?
Anyway, a bunch of people suggested that I should read ISSTH and I’ve been putting it off forever because the first chapter was really boring. However, it’s pretty similar to a lot of other xianxia in a bunch of ways. I heard that the MC was different from the usual xianxia male lead archetype… He kinda was at first, maybe, but that only lasts for a few dozen chapters.
It isn’t bad, and I think it’s probably one of the better ones so far(I’ve only read until chapter 140-ish) However, there are just so~ many things that piss me off about it lol They use the same exact formula as every other xianxia out there: The MC is super strong compared to other people at the same stage as him, but he’s ALWAYS getting into situations where he can’t even fight against the opponents, because they’re just way too overpowered. Then there’s the whole thing where he needs to consume massive amounts of drugs to get stronger and it’s harder for him to ‘level-up’ and ‘rank-up’ because he’s basically an Elite lol.
If you want to know why Michael does want to be an Elite, just read ISSTH or any other Xianxia, since it’s always the same thing. Seriously, why do those authors ALWAYS have to cripple their characters? Is it so that they can show off constantly? Maybe it’s just so that they can drag out the story for 3000 chapters and have the MC constantly in a position of weakness, where his friends and family can easily be murdered or raped, just to add in a bit of drama? I also finally dropped Martial God Asura at like chapter 372, since it was just getting too annoying with all the rape.
Okay, I’m done ranting for now… Wow, I just wanted to promote a few stories and it turned into a list of everything I hate about xianxia lol. Well, there’s also the fact that I can’t stand all the Sects, Clans, Empires and other corrupt, disgusting, and horrible political systems that are always prevalent in those kinds of stories. I think that xianxia would be way better if the MC just went out into the wilderness, and didn’t interact with people, ever… but no, it’s always about people. It’s always about petty arguments, turning into genocide and women are always treated like objects, while everyone is a slave in one way or another. Every time a man besides the MC sees a beautiful woman, they try to rape her, and even the MC is usually a misogynistic bigot.
Okay, I need to stop now lol… The more I talk about xianxia, the more pissed off I get, yet I still read them roflmao! Ugh, I can’t believe I just spent 30 minutes writing this…
I’ve already said this in a comment, but since people usually don’t read those, I needed to make a post about it. Basically, because of the whole “The Boss battle still hasn’t started yet?!” thing, I decided to push my break back a day.
In roughly eleven hours, both chapters are going to be posted pretty close together. I might stop posting an hour apart, if the view-count increases because of this, if it decreases, then I might keep doing the hour apart thing.
The guy who was posting links to Hardcore OP-ness on Reddit stopped… so, if anyone wants to start doing that, I’d be grateful. Anyway, as always, I’m gonna shamelessly advertise Donations. I’m currently working on chapter 182, so the gap is starting to widen(For now.)
Of course, that gap is actually to reduce the pressure on me, so I can write more and faster. Break Day is similar; I keep writing, but because I don’t have to post 2 chapters, it’s more like, instead of 14 chapters a week, I only ‘have to’ write 12. Somewhere along the line, there are days where I can’t write 2 chapters, so it’s helpful to me.
Anyway, I’m about to go to sleep soon, so if you donate or pledge and don’t receive an immediate email or reply, then that’s the reason. I should be awake again within 8 to 12 hours of unconsciousness(Whenever that may be) lol.
The break was supposed to be tonight? Probably, or tomorrow? I don’t even know, and it doesn’t really matter anyway lol. Let’s just say I’m pushing the break-day back a little to celebrate my site getting over 1 million views, yay~!
Basically, I’ll be posting the chapters ‘tonight’ or in 10/11 hours from now. However, after that, the next 2 chapters won’t be coming out until 48 hours later? This is just a heads up, and a bit of advertisement :P. Keep in mind, that on these ‘breaks’ I usually keep writing, so my stash is growing steadily. Of course, you have to remember that those chapters in my HCOP folder are unedited and may be subject to various changes.
Anyone who donates or pledges 10$ or more, will be able to access my Hardcore OP-ness Google-Drive folder. Essentially, it means that you can read 20-30 chapters ahead of what’s currently posted.
For those of you who would rather become a patron, here’s a link to my Patreon site. Keep in mind, I know if you’re on there or not, so don’t try to scam me. If you pledge 10$ to get access, then remove the pledge before the month is up, then I obviously won’t keep sharing the folder with you.
I would also like to thank everyone who donated and pledged as well, though if you want me to put your name or how much you donated on the “Donations” page, you need to let me know.
