Last post was just a general update as to where I was, why there hadn’t been any posts for MONTHS since April. This time, this update is all about my writing. I plan to write updates like this once a month, perhaps at the end of each month, updating about my writing, talking about projects and current works in progress. Yes this post is on the middle of September, but that’s no problem of course.
If you have been following my blog for a while, you will know that I was talking about my current project ‘Not In My Name’. I have been constantly working on this project, the plot constantly changed, the characters constantly changed, everything kept changing. I can’t explain why , but I started to lose interest in the story and lost motivation too. I have left it to one side for now. It could be months. Or perhaps years until I go back to this story. I have no idea what to do with it at all. It’s just shelved for now. Later on il decide whether I’ll continue it or scrap the idea altogether. Right now, the future is undecided.
While I have been gone, I recently got a new boyfriend. One thing we certainly share in common is how creative we both are. He really enjoys art and is always drawing and thinking up new characters. These characters that he has created are, in fact animals, or mythical creatures, meaning dragons. At some point, I should show you his drawings cause they are pretty cool. His two main characters are a dragon called Kenvetai and his wife, a Fox called Foxina and just randomly, I started writing about these two characters, about how they actually met, which my boyfriend had named ‘Love At First Night’. I finished this story in less than a month because it’s not too long. Around 7,500 words at least and only 5 chapters. This story was the best I’ve ever written, in my opinion. The characters were actually 3-dimensional. They had personality! I could see them and hear them clearly in my head. All the characters actually felt real to me. And, of course, my boyfriend absolutely loves what I’m writing about Kenvetai and Foxina.
So I have lots of new characters and lots of new stories that I’m currently planning. I will talk about this more in depth in different posts. Like, a post purely about Ken and Foxina so you guys can meet them properly. Another post about all the stories that are currently in the planning stages. Especially a post about what it’s like to write a story using nothing but animal characters.
I hope you all enjoy my return to my blog and I’m just happy to be back! There will always be a new post on Saturday, every week.
Until next time!
