2/7/14=Wow, I seriously have to stop making the 'one update a year' post a habit...Well, now, I just want to give a short update. I have gotten through four semesters of my Bachelor's Degree so far, and I believe, depending on the route I choose for my minor, I may only have 'til next Spring here at NIU, and then I will be finished. And with my hubby doing so well in his focus for his Bachelor's, I'm confident he will get an internship at a local firm, and then ultimately hired on in the future, and I will be able to focus on my writing.
There are two fanfics I am working on at the moment- the newest chapter of Recession Blues has been on the shelf collecting dust for quite some time, and I will be working on editing that one starting this next week, if things go well. I also have another fanfic I'm working on called Space (but the title may change). I will not be posting this one right away, as I plan to finish this fanfic in it's entirety before posting. I decided that since my postings are so sporadic that I'd might as well just write the whole thing, break it up into chapters, edit it a couple times, and then post it, all at once. I decided that may help my fans to appreciate the writing more in the sense that they won't have to wait over a year for an update, and it will be well-written, and not be full of mistakes, and discrepancies in grammar and wordage.
During this last Fall, I was able to take a creative writing class, and it opened the door that had been shut on me for quite some time- I got over my writer's block, and am now writing again, almost on a weekly basis. It feels good to not only write, but to know I cam come up with original material, which is a rarity for me. I haven't written a dud yet! When I was taking the Long Ridge classes, that opened the door as well, but then I finished the two programs, and I stopped writing once again. I guess I need that push to get something written, meaning that I need incentives, and deadlines to inspire me to continue to write, and reviews from readers worked like a drug addiction in the past. I look forward to consistent writing spurts again in the near future, but until then, I will post the stories after they are finished to save people the headaches of waiting for the next chappy.
I'm not sure how many of my followers will read this journal entry, but either way, I need to do something to let people know I'm still alive and kicking. Plus, this journal entry alone may serve as incentive and a swift kick in the pants promise to keep working on the fanfics toward the goal of resurrection ;-)
So, yeah. See you all again soon! And stay tuned, for a lot of fiction is soon to follow!
4/8/13=Just dropping a note that I have been writing on my new Inuyasha Fanfic today, and I wrote for over five hours so far today, and I'm still caught up in it. Anyways, I decided to copy and paste it into pages on my mom's iMac, and the page count astounded me- I have written 51 pages so far! All on Evernote on my laptop and my nook! I can't believe I have that much typed up of this Fanfic already! I have been adding some plot areas and making it more interesting, and I'm quite proud of it. However, I will be going over it all, and editing it before posting this Fanfic, simply because I want to make sure I won't have to go back and re-edit it and then repost it later. I used to post on a whim as soon as I'd finished each chapter, and I've gone back, and felt the chapters needed a lot of editing and that I'd originally posted an unfinished product. So, when I do post it, it will read and flow well, and I hope everyone interested in reading my new works will enjoy it as much as my previous works. So, yeah, I'm just a bit excited over it all, and I'm glad to be back in the swing of things. This summer I will be writing like mad because I want to finish the Fanfics I've started (Recession Blues and this New Fanfic), as well as get my original fiction up to manuscript form and sent out to publishers. I need to start getting my word out there and get serious about it. This fall, I will focus on writing poetry, fiction and studying American Theater as well, so I will be writing like crazy, and enjoying every minute of it, but I may not have time to write what I'm writing right now, and I refuse to put my readers through another dry spell. I know I'm kinda doing that now, but at least I will over-fill everyone's minds for a while, and open up more time to write more material for posting later. I might even release a chapter a week, just to spread it out, but I'm not sure. If I spend the summer writing the fanfics, then I can post them a bit at a time and keep everyone happy ;-) I will let everyone know what my plans are, but rest assured, there'll be tons of Fanfiction coming!!!!
New Inuyasha Fanfic in the works!!!
I am working on a brand new story that has not been titled as of yet. In this Fanfic, Kagome and Inuyasha meet on a train to work, and things just carry on from there. It's a romance, of course. Not much comedy, but we'll see what happens. I have 51 pages typed up so far, but they are unedited, so it will be a while before they're edited and posted. I decided to write them on Evernote, so they aren't even separated into chapters as of yet, and I plan to work on that soon. I will keep you all posted on how many chapters these pages add up to, and where I'm at so that it gives everyone an idea how much longer it will be before posting.
Status:Chapter 4 uploaded and Chapter 5 is finished, and needs editing. I will soon be posting chapter 5 and then working on the next chapter ;-)
Status: Chapter 21= complete/posted. Chapter 22 in the works. I've decided due to the movie release of "Once" that it will remain a fan fiction. I began to work on the next chapter, however, my muse hasn't given me any visions on where to go next with this lovely story. But once I get an inkling, I will update my profile accordingly ;-)
Well, I know that I did mention that I would do the three other stories that threaded into the Unaware story, and the idea has lived on the back burner for quite some time now. I still would like to do that in the near future. However, I have books and other projects that I aim to publish in the near future as well, and they will take precedence at this time. I will update this section regarding on when I will begin working on the Unaware Minis :-)
Also, if you're curious, I'll tell you a little bit about me.
I'm married and age 35. I've been writing stories since I was a child and I also dabble in poetry and song lyrics. I've been singing since I learned how to talk and I've been graced with seven years of voice lessons, that's where the song lyrics come into play. I write song lyrics. I am a big fan of anime, and anything pertaining to the orient. I am in the process of learning Japanese in college at this time. My favorite anime list is a long one, and it keeps growing:
As you can see, I like a wide variety of anime, as well as manga, and I love reading. I truly enjoy reading the fiction posted by all of you. I have my favorites of course. Stories, not writers. To me, you all are wonderful artists, and I commend you all for posting such wonderful and original ideas. Thank you for taking the time to read my loooong profile, and I hope my stories interest you. Ja ne!
