Hi there. Man, 'sbeen a while since I've been here. Anyway, I get pretty wall-of-text-y as is, so I won't waste your time and get straight to the point. My first project, the story I want to publish as my outing as an author, is finally making decisive leaps forwards. The script - in the form of a linear day-by-day timeline of events - is just about done, I have a decently clear picture of the target audience, and my writing style has seen much improvement after I was able to get over that unconscious "better than thou"-attitude of mine and actually started reading much more same-genre works by others to learn from them, their writing styles and their stories. What I am stumped on is a much more basic matter - the almighty font. It's like this, basically... In the beginning I wasn't quite sure what medium I would actually choose. Novel? Light novel? Visual novel, maybe even a manga? My writing style wasn't yet very clearly developed, and I wasn't quite sure about the length yet, either. By now I was able to narrow it down. I'll definitely reach a few hundred pages of text (assuming it's a novel), and my writing style relies a lot on dialogue, and on going through character actions and scene changes in a flowing, progressive way. And I'm good at character artworks, but backdrops take me forever to draw. So it definitely can't be a manga; those have ever-changing visual backdrops and don't work that well for dialogue-heavy writing styles. I also want to publish it as one complete story, not in a serialized form, making the light novel medium a less than ideal choice as well - also because those usually target a younger audience than the one I'm aiming for. So that's what this leaves me with: Either a novel, probably with the occasional page-sized hand-drawn artwork highlighting character introductions and key scenes... ... or a visual novel. Now, for a visual novel, the font choice is kind of very easy; text on a PC screen, no matter the font, is more easily readable than printed text in a book, so as long as it looks good and fits the style, almost everything is a fine choice here. No, what I'm stumped on is what font to choose if I make it a novel. On one hand, I am very much aware of the fact that serif fonts do much and more for the readability of printed text; "serif fonts are more readable while sans serif fonts are more legible," as we all know. So my logical brain says: Choose a serif font, because a sans serif font won't be as readable, it will be off-putting. But on the other hand... well, no serif font I ever laid eyes upon so far feels like it fits my writing style, and the tone and setting of this particular story, at all. They tend to look too traditional - too "old-school", so to speak. So my artistic brain says: Choose a sans serif font, because a serif font will clash with your style and feel wrong. So, yeah... I'm pretty stumped here. Do you have any advice you feel might be useful to me? Any font suggestions, or other forms of tips and advice you might be able to give? Thanks in advance. I appreciate any advice you can give. And if you need more information to give meaningful advice, do say so. Greets, AG PS: Jebus Crust... I wall-of-text'd all over myself again.
