[Genius Hour] Week #14: Hiatus? Hiatus.

- 2 mins

Yeah, definitely thinking I’ll be taking a hiatus.

What projects did I work on?

What did I accomplish?

Conceptualized the air idea - I’m excited to start working on it, but AP exams have to take priority…

I did get hit by random bursts of inspiration this week, though, and actually managed to throw down some stuff for chapter 5 (more or less planned everything & drafted 2 scenes with 2 others near completion).

Here’s a snippet:

“Talk,” repeated Kirishima, eyebrows raised.

“Talk,” confirmed Izuku. “Why do you want to win this exercise?”

“I, well…” Kirishima knit his brow as he turned the question over. “I mean, why would I want to lose? This is training, anyway—it’s supposed to get us ready for real hero work, right? Wouldn’t it be kinda useless if you didn’t try your best?”

“You said this is supposed to prepare you for ‘real hero work.’” Izuku looked to Kirishima for a correction (mostly as a gesture) and continued when none came. “But what are the odds you’ll find yourself in this situation as a pro? Slim to none.” Kirishima’s mouth opened. “Then, you might say: yes, but it’s also important to understand how villains think.” Mouth closed. “If I were you, and I was really trying to play a villain, I would threaten the hostages to get the pros to back off. I’d put some kind of time pressure on them to meet my demands—maybe, for every minute they delay, I kill one person.”

“That’s—”

“—villainous? Exactly. But obviously, this is a simulation, and you’re training to become a pro. That’s a mental attitude that’s tough to change. Can you really say this scenario is accurate?”

“Wait wait wait,” interrupted Kirishima, whose eyebrows had been successively climbing higher and higher through Izuku’s speech. “You’re just trying to distract me, aren’t you?”

“Partially,” Izuku admitted.

What did I fail to accomplish?

Changed direction a lot but I’m still satisfied with what came out of this week.

What do I hope to accomplish next week?

Hiatus…so no particular goals.
