I know I haven't been coming here much, and I apologize. Had to deal with quite a few personal issues and my writing took a hit. Everything seems to be kinda settled for now. I hope it stays that way. I have fallen quite a bit behind. Despite all that, I was able to finish a few drawings that I had been working on. Only two at the moment, with a few more almost done. Just the basic pencil drawings. Very basic. Might post them as soon as I can find a way to scan them. Don't know how well a camera phone image would work. I'll figure something out. I'm also still trying to post the "revised" chapters. The chapters currently posted here are the old, somewhat unedited version.
I was in the process of editing chapter 5 at my library when all of the sudden...Microsoft Word froze up. All I thought I would've had to do was close the program and restart. Well, I did. The result...
THE COMPUTER WIPED MY DISC CLEAN!!!
I don't think many can begin to understand how pissed I was, and still am. The good news (yes there is good news to this) is that I write my stories by hand, but I know a lot of writers probably do that. So, fortunately, I still have everything; story notes, characters studies and all chapters.
I need to work on getting a computer.
Not entirely too much to say here. I'm still working on chapter 3, but almost done. I took a little break from continuing the chapter to work on coming up with monsters and other creatures to scare everyone.
New Story Idea?
Okay, so there's one story I was working on, but I'm not completely sure about it anymore. It's a mecha-type story. Not quite sure how many people are into that. So...I thought about changing it up some. I did like the idea I had, but it seemed like a combination of Code Geass and Death Note the more I thought about it.
So the slight change...make it a pirate-type story. Might not be so slight, I know, but it would be something different. Well, for me anyway. Never really dabbled much in the pirate-theme, but I thought, "Why not," you know? Something new and different for me to try.
Or what I probably will do is write one chapter for each version and see which sounds better. All I'd have to do though is write one in the pirate-theme. I already have the mecha-themed one written.
The characters will be the same. The places will be the same. Roughly everything will be the same, minus part of the major plot. And there's more to the story than just the typical pirate things. Lol.
The story this orginally evolved from was one I began as a junior in high school, which now seems like ages ago. That story has gone through many, many changes, but much of it remains the same. I love that story too much to just toss it aside. It was the first one I ever tried writing. It was an original, not a fanfic.
Ah, hope I didn't bore anyone to much. Just wanted to give a little update. Hope everyone has been doing well.
