and creative process as much as anything else - how I start, and even why.
What makes a memorable character?
What are the themes?
How much do you care about popularity - ie. is it a project you're doing for
yourself, or because you hope it will generate a huge, mainstream audience?
What age-range is it?
And as mentioned earlier - why is it important you do it?
But let's start with...
Where do you get you ideas?
Great ideas do not come fully-formed out of the ether. Even the ideas I've
had that were born of dreams, and dragged screaming from my subconscious
before I forgot them, were an accumulation of living experiences. In Metawhal
Alpha the setting is somewhere I lived as a boy. I know every inch of the
Clock Warehouse, the noises and smells of the place, as well as the referenced
folklore. The Pub in Death and the Myrmidon was indeed a local, and it does
have a well covered in glass that y

Files sizes and the reader performanceFile size does matter to a certain extent in how your book will perform in the reader.Files sizes and the reader performance1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Pages with lots of assets that have large file sizes may tend to slow down in the reader or take a little while to load.
The best rule of thumb is to try to keep the file sizes of your assets as low as possible without affecting the quality of the asset.
For images, use a .png for any image that contains transparent pixels (such as a character cut out of it's environment).
Use a .jpg for any image that does not contain any transparent pixels (such as a background image). Where a .png may be 2 or 3 megabytes in size, that same image will be about 500k as a .jpg and that savings will help your page perform better without reducing the quality.
For sound, try to loop sound where you can and fade out sound where you can. Instead of just playing a 2 minute long piece of music, try to make the melody loop, then move to the next looped melody at a tap point. This not only reduces file size
