I am finally writing again. I started playing around on my lunch break this week. And there seems to be merit in the idea. A sort of sleeping beauty/beauty and the beast kind thing. Cursed king that the world has forgotten and he is frozen in time, except he is awake and cranky. Very cranky. So how do you break a curse when nobody remembers you exist.
Fun idea right. I’m thinking so. I will keep you guys updated. Writing on my lunch break is nice cause it gets me away from a computer screen. And I haven’t given up on my other stories. But I can’t afford to get that sucked into my writing while at work. Otherwise nothing gets done because I am continually distracted thinking about the writing. Yep not ready to let my day job. So must stay focused on work during work time.
So I am safe working on this one cause it is the sum total of 3 or 4 pages. But I am super excited to be writing and writing with my fountain pen. Have a wonderful Saturday.
I have just posted a new page, this is the introduction to Owl Story. It is the most polished of my story as I thought it would be a short story. However it seems Rachael and Sean’an had other ideas. Hope you enjoy. Let me know what you think.
I had high hopes for writing this evening, but today’s events shattered my calm. I hesitate to even pen these words now. I try to write regardless of my mood, however I don’t want to taint my stories with my bad frame of mind. I suppose I could use this negative mindframe to write my villianous scenes, yet when I got back that scene, the negative vibe will linger. I have worked too hard on these stories to allow this feeling to ruin it. I have found stuff I wrote while upset or estastic the feeling is recalled. Most of the pieces I wrote sad or anger the feeling stayed through out and eventually I abandoned it. Of course I have abandoned some of the estastic stuff because I couldn’t recapture the mood to finish writing.
Right now all I can feel is the negative, the doubts, and the overblown ego of thinking I can write. I know this is bull, but I can’t seem to push it away to reclaim my calm and mostly positive outlook. (Beware anyone that is overly positive all the time, there is something wrong with them. Unless they are children or in touch with their inner child.)
Here’s hoping to better moods and better writing times. Cheers, james
I added a page for my second work in progress (WIP). I haven’t had a working tittle until tonight” Saving Emilsa”, sounds a lot better than dream based story.
It has been several months since I worked on this story, because it didn’t feel right. So I focused on Owl Story and waited for the right time. That time came earlier this week, it started slowly and now I have a better grasp of where my story is going.
I am still cheering for everyone taking part of NaNo 2014. I wish you the best. Cheers, james
