7/27/15= Well, folks, today is a miracle day. I have been working on Recession Blues for years now, and I just finished writing the first draft of the story. There are 12 chapters in all, and I tell ya, this story has been quite a ride to write over these recent weeks. I saw this story go from an innocent romance to a dark, mystery, adventure story. I'm so glad it's done!
Now, I will go over the chapters for editing. I plan to do a full edit of the chapters, meaning I will use my newly learned editing skills to perfect the story from beginning to end. One thing I will also do, is I will more than likely end up changing the title, as with the ending of the story, and the roller coaster it put me on is not what I expected, and it looks like Recession Blues no longer fits. I have no idea yet as to what to name this story, since it leaves behind the feel of a story reflecting on the recession that happened here in 2008. If you all have any ideas for a fanfic that has to do with the questions I asked in the previous journal, feel free to comment with suggestions. I'm all ears
This story has become a whole new animal completely. I love the road it took, and I'm hoping that my readers, old and new, will enjoy it. It's unlike anything I've written before, and as I have a lot more fiction coming, I hope this one opens my readership up with a bang, literally.
There are, however, some very adult situations that I need to soften up for versions of chapters that could be read by the younger crowd (those under 18). This story went so far down the opposite path that the very ending is quite the perky lemon, and very sensual in nature. So, I will need to figure out how to tastefully write that last chapter to convey the same message. It sucks that I have to write two different chapters for those scenes, but at the same time, it helps to cater to those who would be missing a lot, and my readers are worth it.
Anyways, I'm grateful for your patience, and the plan is to post these chapters this next coming weekend, if not sooner, since this story is only 12 Chapters long. I may edit it more than once, as I no longer write to experiment. I am now a professional writer, and I plan to exercise the same skill set dedication to entertain my fanfic writers, as well as my readers I have yet to gain in the real world when I release my first original book.
And for now, I will get to editing.
7/20/15=Today has been an interesting one. Friday, I was read a whole slew of the reviews left here on my fanfics, and I realized I hadn't read them in so long. For years, even after the words of praise I'd received from all my readers, I was questioning my writing abilities, and since went back to college. I learned a lot during those past four years. I have to say that writing here on FF.net and mm.org has really helped me to see where my talents lay, and gauge my growth as a writer.
Now that I've read through the reviews, they brought a smile to my face, and reminded me of how people felt about my writing. I believe I have grown sine then, and my writing is now more focused, the structure is better, and I feel a lot more confident than I did years ago. I'm not sure whether my fan base will flourish now as it did ten years ago, but I'm willing to continue to write and post more fanfiction. I still enjoy writing Inuyasha and Co., as they are the best characters I've come across in regards to depth, variety, and personality.
What I want to say, is I am thankful for the reviews everyone wrote for my chapters and stories, and it's a trip that Unaware is still very much alive out there, and still favorited today. I am very thankful that there are those readers who have stuck around, even though I went on a ten-year long hiatus, it seems. I am back, writing every day, and I'm excited! I've become more of an editor, strengthened my grammar skills, and become somewhat of a grammar Nazi, so to speak *giggles* So, one of the things I plan to do soon, after I finish these fanfics stories, is edit the stories I have posted, so that those annoying grammatical errors no longer take my readers out of the worlds I've created.
I'm looking forward to posting these stories after they're finished, and I hope you all enjoy them, as they aren't the same-old-same-old stories. Recession Blues has really become complicated, and I am enjoying writing this dynamic story. It started out simplistic and became quite the story. I may need to do some research a bit. I never imagined, when I started this story five years ago, that I would be seeing it take this direction. I look forward to the feedback, and I'm glad I'll be able to respond to the reviews individually, as I wish I could have responded to them years ago that way. I look forward to interacting with my future readers that way, and just sit tight a bit longer, their almost done ;-)
7/17/15= OK, subject of the day: Recession Blues
Here's the thing, this story, as I've just come to realize, is quite the story. It started out with just a simple premise. Years ago, while writing the first four chapters, I did not notice the plot holes that already existed. I have since written six more chapters (I'm working on Chapter 10 now,) and it is no longer the same, simple romance I was working on years ago. It has grown into a complicated, dark, action-packed romance that brings about new questions.
The first question stems from the first episode. If the jewel was burned with Kikyo's body after her death, how did it reform within Kagome as a jewel, and Kikyo herself after resurrection wasn't imbued with the jewel within her body amongst the ashes used to resurrect her?
The second question, is if this were the case, how would the jewel dust be extracted if it were known this was the case?
And if the extraction were to happen, would Kikyo have survived?
Also, if Kikyo were to die, would the dust come back with each reincarnation?
Yeah, these are the questions that came about, and are in the process of being answered in this story. And here, it started out with the simplest of premises-Inuyasha is there, for some reason, surrounded in mystery. He opens door, Kagome trips, and he makes the promise to help her as long as she's injured and wants to beat Ninja Warrior. Yeah, re-reading through the earlier chapters caused me to ask questions I never thought I'd ask.
I have to admit, though, while I was originally writing Recession Blues years ago, I was mainly focusing on the Recession, and it had a personal touch to it in the sense that Kagome was suffering through things I was going through, and I am no longer in that place since things have changed dramatically for me over the past five or so years. I'm going through the same thing with my original novel I plan to finish and publish. I'm finding I have to start that one from scratch and do some research, and character development to make it flow better.
Going through college these past four years has really helped me see where I'm going, and who I am as a writer. I now have a job that allows me to write as I work, and I find myself creatively exhausted when I go home every night. This, I believe, is a writer's dream. Recession Blues may very well receive a title change, just as my life has dramatically changed, and the light is at the end of the tunnel, so to speak.
So, please be patient with me, as I know the new version of Recession Blues will be much more dynamic, and entertaining than the original direction. It will take a bit more time to get this story finished, and edited than expected, but at least I'm on the ball once again.
So, stay tuned, and I thank you all for your patience
7/1/15=I can't believe it! I did it again! I didn't update for over a year again! And on top of that, so much has happened that I have to share! I've graduated college with my Bachelor's in English, and acquired a new job where, guess what... I CAN WRITE EVERY DAY!!! Yes, my readers, I will now have a lot more posted, a lot more often.
I have finished Chapter 5 of Recession Blues, and have moved on from Chapter 6 onto 7, which I started writing today. However, I am not going to post any chapters on that just yet. This story is taking a whole new turn, actually, and I need to see where this story is going before I start posting more. The change starts during Chapter 5, so I need to make sure it works and make tweaks wherever needed before posting.
I do have a new fanfic listed below I have finished, and am currently editing called Being Watched, which will b posted all at once, on the same day, preferably a weekend day. That way my readers won't have to wait to read the chapters one by one as before.
There is another story I've started which is a new category I've never written before where Inuyasha and Miroku are Self-Defense trainers, and you can guess who their clients are... This one is also into the 7th chapter, and I've been writing this one since I started this new job about a month ago. This one will also be posted once it is finished. I really like the backstory on this one, and I can't wait to receive the comments on it.
Well, that's all I have for now. Keep watch for the next stories to come fairly soon ;-)
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:Chapters 5-10 written so far, and will be entering the editing faze once all chapters are written. I am still working on this fanfiction at this time. Feel free to look at the latest author's note above for more details
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 37. 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:
Inuyasha- Always and forever
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!
