Busy, busy, my lovelies. I think I owe everyone who might still be interested in my stories some updates.
I wrote the next chapter of Fallen for You a while ago, but I was rather disgusted with how it turned out. So I let it sit with the intention of revamping it, but found that I just didn't even know where to begin. Now, I think I'm just going to scrap it and rewrite it.
I actually tried to work on Blood and Chocolate (surprise, surpriiiiise) for the first time in years the other day, but when I got a new laptop, it seems I didn't transfer the document that had what I had written thus far, as well as the outline of the chapter. So I'm floundering with that story once more.
What I have written thus far for Never Let You Go disgusts me outright. Considering I started writing it when I was 12 - I suppose? - I guess I shouldn't be so startled. I may have to edit it a bit and make it sound a bit more intelligible before I even fathom writing the next chapter. The contrast between my old writing style and my current one would be rather embarrassing when seen so clearly, side-by-side in the chapters.
Paradigm. Wow, unplanned story-much. All that needs to be said. It's on the back-burner. I have no idea where I even want to take it at this point.
As a side note - Jiminy Cricket - how did you people ever sit down and seriously read A Dark Past? I can't even... I tried reading the beginning of it and just found myself burying my face in my hands. You can very-much tell that I started it when I was 11. I wish I could just sit down and rewrite it, but I'm neither motivated enough, nor do I really have the time, being a full-time college student. One day, maybe. In the mean time... -files for a restraining order against her own story-
I think I should point out now that I refuse to abandon stories. I will finish them, even if it's a long, drawn-out, and painfully slow process.
Gonna stalk me? Be creative about it.
Quote of the Moment: "That's the way things come clear. All of a sudden. And then you realize how obvious it's been all along."
AND! I'd like to take this time to thank the epically awesome Azzy-chan for editing Blood and Chocolate (and keeping me sane and my yaoi muse going).
And then there's Jennifer-san who edits Fallen for You AND forces me back on my feet when life pushes me flat on my face.
Wanna get the latest updates on manga? I will share with you a secret. Okay, not really. Some of you already know about OneManga, so it won't make any difference. But I just felt like sharing. X3 So sue me.
(Updates may be slow until stability comes back into my life.)
Fallen for You (FfY): As of late winter '10, it's become the official number one priority. I still can't forsee how many chapters there are going to be, as I don't know exactly, but I can promise that it isn't going to be uber long. I'm hoping not more than 30 chapters as it really isn't that complicated of a plot. But only time will tell.
Blood and Chocolate (B&C): Alright, well... I lost it. Really, truly, and completely. Not the plot, no. I still have that mostly figured out. I lost the feel of the story. As such, I'm going to have to spend some time finding it again. That also means that if I post another chapter soon, that it may seem... off (this may also be due to the fact that it's been two years since an update). Eh, but at least I'm trying for you guys. Right? Right...
A Dark Past (ADP): Complete with 44 chapters and an epilogue. I'm going to start the slow process of completely revamping the first thirty chapters or so. So please, for now, ignore its bad quality.
Princess in Pink (PiP): Isn't actually a multi-chaptered fic, but a collaboration of oneshots, drabbles, and minifics. The only time I actually work on this, though, is when I'm getting over writer's block or hit by magical inspiration... so updates are what you might call "sporadic" and there's no premeditated number of chapters.
Never Let You Go (NLYG): I haven't even thought about this for a long time. I won't discontinue it, but an update for it might take time. I'm not really in a crossover mood anymore, so it'll be a struggle to work on it, but because I know the feeling of frustration a reader gets when an author stops writing something because they're "tired" of it or "not feeling the vibe anymore," I WILL finish it no matter what. Even if it takes twenty years, and let's hope it doesn't, ne?
Paradigm: Fudge-muffins. This was a very unplanned story and, alas, I don't know where it is priority-wise, but behind FfY for sure. Um. I'll work on this over Christmas break. It's not going to be very long, I'm guessing. But, ah lordy, what do I know? I'm just the author. I don't write the stories, I'm just the mediator through which they write themselves. Really. I don't have any control anymore. X.x
I also have a FictionPress account. It doesn't have much right now, but I have some poems and jazz like that I might put up later. And some original stories (I know--SHOCK OH SHOCK) if I ever get around to writing again. XD
“Have you ever been in love? Horrible, isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suir of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person--no different from any other stupid person--wanders into your stupid life--and you give them a piece of you. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like "Maybe we should be just friends," turns into a glass splinter that working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.”
