Hey guys what is up my friends! Long time no freaking see! Oh my gosh I miss this place!
First of all, I want to appologize for my half a years absence. Now get me, I am sooooooooo sorry that I just left you guys after promising to write something original on . Very very sorry. But I can explain!
The reasoning as to why I never posted anything there was for a few reasons. I have been going to a writer's club and they told me that it is easier to get someone to publish your work if it is not on the internet at all. Also, I was afraid that if I was going to publish it, that someone might steal the work and beat me to it. I mean this is the internet after all, so anything can happen. So I started writing my unique story half a year ago after finishing Chaos. But, this turned out to be harder than I thought.
I really underestimated how much of an impact you guys had on me as I wrote Chaos. Your reviews is really what kept me going. Even in the beginning when I wrote initial chapters it was just for fun. Then when reviews started to come in and people were starting to love it I started to think to myself "Well gee, I have a small set of fans here. Can't stop now, they want more!" And so it is no exaggeration to say that without your guys's help I would never have finished Chaos! Thanks so much for that!
Unfortunately, here I am writing Tempting Fate, it seems that I got so used to your guys's feedback. And so after I wrote just one and a half chapters, yes that's right one and a half chapters, I just plain stopped writing period. It was like this huge Berlin Wall erected itself in my mind, blocking me from progressing in this story that I had plotted from beginning to end in my mind. And so for half a year I pretty much was stuck in development hell when it came to Tempting Fate.
Till at last a week ago, I watched Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring for perhaps the 10th time. Then there came that scene when Frodo is holding the ring near the River Anduin, contemplating whether he should just throw the ring in the river and forget about it. But then he remembers what Gandalf said to him in the mines.
Frodo: I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had ever happened.
Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All that you have to do decide is what to do with the time that is given to you.
And then Frodo puts the ring back into his pocket, all while Howard Shore's uplifting song plays. Frodo gets on the boat and continues on his journey despite the doubts he had and how much he desperately wanted to just give up.
This scene, more than anything made me think. "That's kind of like me with my writing, I want to stop. But at the same time, I really want to get this going." And after thinking about this for a good hour I was just like "FUUUUCK! I'm gonna do this shit!"
And so I came to the final conclusion, even if this project that I will now undertake is plagarized or isn't published, it will still be read by some people if it goes online. And heck, I'd rather have it be read and loved for no profit than having never wrote it at all.
That said, I will now, with no doubt, begin writing a series called Tempting Fate on the website fictionpress dot com. And yes, my account there is also DomesticHouseCat. (Can't put real links on this place for some reason, so annoying!) It will be in the fantasy section if you are interested and I hope you are! And if you can't find it in that section, just look my profile up on that website and access the story there! It's only got two chapters so far, but I promise you now I will try to get one up every week.
What you can look forward to seeing in this tale is Adventure, extreme Action scenes, romance, mystery, war and most of all, loyalty. I most look forward to writing this story, and I most certainly look forward to hearing your guys's thoughts on it! Please come and review it even if you don't have an account there! I kept the guest reviewing option on for that story, so anyone can chip in. And I sincerely hope you guys do! Seriously, each review really goes a long way guys.
Again, I love you guys so much! Thank you all for your support in this!
