    He has. I read it in his SBS Question Corner in the graphic novels. He said that he's halfway through right now.

    I know, I've read it too, I just don't believe him. :P

    I guess he could have it planned out by ad large, but I'm sure he didn't have all the little details in there since the very beginning.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was like that too. It's hard to think of the minute details way in advance. Did you read about Boa Hancock, how Oda had an idea for her and drew her months ahead for the Jump cover but when she actually appeared, the design changed a bit?

    Anyways, back on topic, I'd be happy just to get one chapter done. xD
    Speaking of which, I was lurking in the Antarctic-Press forum and found a pretty good advice about doing one-shots:

    The main points you should get across are what should be communicated in just about any story:
    who your characters are
    what their motivations are
    how they relate to one another
    the main point(s) of the plot

    ...Ideally, your story should be self-contained, but leave people wanting more.

    Yeah...

    I think that Antartic-Press had a nice little summary there. It's like a one-shot itself. I want more advice.

    I think this is sort of related: Anybody know where you can find a good one-shot to read? You know, to kind of get an idea of how they should be composed?

    I think that almost any short story (4,000 words and under) could serve as a good reference for what would be a decent one shot concept. There's also a ton of one-shot comics on www.mangatraders.com if you still want to see one.

    A one-shot is comic book lingo for a one issue volume. It's all self-contained in that one volume, story-wise, but can also leave it open-ended if the one-shot is a hit and more volumes are requested by fans and the publisher. It's like those one chapter pitches that manga-ka creators sometimes have published in Jump and other tankobons. Btw, an issue is equivalent to about a chapter and are usually about 32 pages long.

    I'll try to find some other stuff I've found then! C:
