Creative Writing By Blizzy



Ok, here we go. Blogpost time. This is a very special post, because it'll most likely be my last official post here on Blogspot. Oh noes, is Disgraph going away? No, not at all! We're just moving to a fancy new website. Now, I've enjoyed my home here on Blogspot, but frankly, I always felt that it didn't carry an air of professionalism to it. It looked very...back alley operation. So after some poking around and checking out fellow webcomics, I came across Wordpress and Comicpress. Exactly what I needed. So after banging my head against a wall getting it installed (so many little things went wrong and my technical masculinity was emasculated) it's up and ready to go.

DISCLAIMER: At the time of posting, the main server was down. This is off to a great start >.>

But here we go, my new home. Take off your damn shoes before you enter!

The New Adventures of Disgraph T. Dwarf

So that's that. All major updates and blog postings will take place over there from now on. Its got all the fancy features like RSS and that jazz. Still have to do some cleaning up to do and all that, but hey there you go. I'll still continue to post the comics here for a bit until I feel enough people have migrated. But blog posts and all the fun stuff will be there.

So onto the comic itself. Realize that this is one of those things that really took shape at 2 in the morning...so I'm not sure how much sense it'll make. I thought it was funny. But at 2 in the morning, anything starts getting funny.

The premise though is simple enough. For those who don't know, Blizzard is holding a Creative Writing Contest! Seeing as half my major is writing, I couldn't resist at poking some fun at fan fiction/contemporary fantasy cliches. It's what I do. Hence my helpful guide Blizzy will be spending the next couple weeks walking you through how to write a top class story. Hey, you may even get 2 comics in one week, but no promise yet.

But Disgraph, these can't take that much time to do. Why not make more than one a week? Well the answer is simple Mystery Voice. While I'm making fun of the Contest, I'm also working on my own submission. So until the April 12th due date, that has priority over a second comic. What's it about you ask? I'm not telling you!!! You're out to steal my chance to meet with top blizz developers. I'm onto you... But at the same time, I don't l like talking about my work til its done. But I will say that it has nothing to do with Disgraph. And that now that I'm into, I'm having a lot of fun wit it.

Damn this sucker is long. Well, that's it for now I guess. Don't forget to head over to the new site...if it's working...and update your bookmarks!

Ok, HUGE mistake there: Jaina's father is dead, killed by Rexxar/Vol'Jin/Chen Stormstout/Cairne to defend Durotar

Yea I know. But in fanfiction, you can ignore facts like that. Or maybe the plot is set before Admiral Proudmore arrives and the torrid love affair is what really sets him off. All in context my friend.
