Author has written 12 stories for Naruto, and Harry Potter.
OMG guys... such a hassle. I took an extra twenty hours at one of my jobs last week so that I could afford this computer. $648- Jesus Christ. But as an editors assistant who travels a lot I have certain aspects that I have to have with the computer. Rotating spine like a tablet so that I don't break it. Light weight. Business programs and all the Microsoft word programs... touch screen preferred because I've been working with one for the passed three years. Finding one was such a pain.
In the middle of loading everything off of the Cloud. I'll be doing some editing on the chapters, but I should be able to start posting again by Monday. A guest asked when I tend to update. Thursdays are my preferred days to post, but sometimes I will on Sat. or Mons because I tend to have those two days off. I don't like posting on Tues, Wed, or Sundays because I work both jobs. Fridays are up in the air. Sometimes I work both jobs but sometimes I work neither. I go up to see my best friend in Denver, Co. one weekend a month so its more accurate to say I post three out of the four weeks in a month.
I work as a Editors Assistant for a publishing firm and night shifts at Starbucks. Free books and coffee, what could be better? But this does mean that I work a LOT. I spend ALL of my free time writing. Working on both fanfiction for fun and my own original works. To be forewarned, I want to send out my manuscript before the end of the summer, so I will be taking one week out of the month for focusing solely on my novel so updates will still be relatively fast paced but NOT my top priority.
I think I answered that question. Anyways... heading off to work on the stories.
Response to Review about Vanguard
Will you be continuing into the Hogwarts Years?
The Hogwarts Years will be their own stories. Actually I never planned on writing Vanguard. I was just exploring the origins of this horrifying ability Ron has and it took on a life of its own. One day as I was working on First Year at Hogwarts I kept wanting to put flashbacks in for the past because I had some really good fun pieces and it would have helped explain where this power came from. Finally I thought, well shit, okay, just write the story of how it happened and get it out of your system so you can write first year. No one has to see. You're kind of shitty writing little kids, so just... yeah, no one has to see. We'll then I started writing scenes from Ron's perspective and Bilius perspective and Arthur's perspective and before I knew it I had like 30,000 words and it actually wasn't so bad. The plot was so much BIGGER than I'd anticipated it would be and before I knew it, I looked at it and thought... well, apparently you really wanted to write a prequel before you ever got to the main storyline didn't you? So I outlined it and put in a bunch of foundations for problems that will occur in the Hogwarts years and was like... yeah, okay. Now I don't have to put in blasted flashbacks. And the big villains I wanted to introduce early on in the series will make more sense and I won't have to explore WHY their involved because the readers will have already seen it for themselves. So all around it worked much better. #UnplannedBUTbrilliantideas #Yesthisismywritingprocess #OhThePlotsIHave
AS you guys can imagine the death of Peter Pettigrew & the destruction of the Elder Wand is going to have MAJOR ripple affects on the Harry Potter Timeline.
The Ministry has its sights set on Ron, Dumbledore is personally teaching him, The Grim has plans. All of these people, both the bad, the good, the manipulative and the neutral parties are going to be moving behind the scenes and making for 7 years of interesting changes.
How will this affect Harry Potter?
What about Sirius Black? Now that his primary motivator for escaping is gone, what will happen to him? Especially since Ron doesn't seem inclined to say a freaking word about the accidental on purpose murder.
How will Voldemort return?
How will Ron's abilities and his families knowledge of them, change the course of the story?
You'll have to read the upcoming works
I have the first three years heavily outlined and a lot of scenes from year 1 written already (though with the coming conclusion of Vanguard there is no doubt in my head that I'm going to have to REVISE a fuck ton of those scenes to fit the prequel I wrote, le sigh).
AND Which house is Ron going to be sorted into? Le gasp! It's not Gryffindor?
Will it be Hufflepuff? Inspired by our dear, dear Meredith Binns whose personality resides in Asha?
Will it be Ravenclaw? As Dumbledore suspects for Ron's way with puzzles and chess?
Or will it be Slytherine? Where people with dark powers tend to be sorted?
What sort of repercussions will be unleashed with each of these? I actually heavily considered all three houses as I knew I wanted to write an alternative Ron in another house story. I feel like we are SEVERELY lacking in all three. As it stands, I chose the house and then to satisfy my need to explore ALL FOUR of the houses, I chose a character from each of the houses to have as main protagonists. Harry and Hermione are the Gryffindors, obviously, but our other two picks are ones that really don't get enough love in this fandom.
