College is about to start for me, so I will not be likely to have time for MOCpages anywhere in the foreseeable future. Making an original and fulfilling creation takes time, and lots of inspiration too; music and anime has been my major inspiration, and collecting MP3s has become a new hobby of mine.

Have you ever eaten a sandwich with a too much bread? That's life without inspiration. I have dedicated to writing my stories without much filler content, and have also taken the same approach to building models. All content, no filler. And with this new idea in mind, I was able to kick myself into MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE and complete Step 3 of all components to my next MOC.

That's right, a new, Insurgency story MOC is due to be uploaded by me. Por supuesto, it'll feature an original story and design, fancy schmancy HTML, aswell as UHD photos rendered with POV-Ray, with a bonus OST composed by me. ETA is Soon™

How I create a story MOC.

Step 1: Get inspired
I always wish for my creations to be fulfilling for both the viewer as well as for myself. So, I like to take the time to find the coolest things out there and try to elaborate on them in my creations. If I see a design I like, I add it; if I see a concept I like, I use it. Freewriting, the act of aimlessly writing anything the comes to mind, is also a good way to get ideas out of the head and into real life.

Step 2: Plan
After collecting so many ideas, it makes sense to consolidate them into one single creation for maximum impact. Once I know what I want to create, I begin to plan the steps in order to make it a reality. For example, I answer questions like “In what order should the story unfold,” “What ideas are good, and which are just plain crazy,” “Do I have everything,” “Where should I switch things up?” Such similar questions may also be asked about design MOCs as well.

Step 3: Design
We are all judges, and we all can rate something. So, when we build or write, we are very capable of judging our own work. The problem, however, is that once we see something wrong, most of us are unable to (A) comprehend what the matter is and (B) use our abilities to fix it. So then, we must extend our perspective –that is, think outside the box—to fix problem-A. We also must learn new skills as we continue creating, we must learn as we build and gain extensive knowledge as to the know-how of creation so that we can tackle problem-B. The design phase is the most important, and it is where our imagination really shines.

Step 4: Revise
No work is ever complete until it has the full approval of its creator. This is my own personal judgment, and I think the reader will agree. I consider myself to be a perfectionist, so everything I do must meet up to my own high standards. But, besides to add perfection, there is still a need to revise creations before uploading them. Oftentimes, maybe three or four revisions may be needed to correct oddities or format.

These four steps I follow every time I create anything with LEGO. Each step may take a few weeks, and the design phase, depending on how big the creation is, may take many more. However, I follow all four steps for each part of the MOC I design, whether it be the model, story, HTML, or all three. I sometimes slack off on one or the other however because while I like everything to be perfect, I am also the laziest person to ever have such an outlook on life.
