Well! It’s been four days since I last told you all about my life, so I had to share with y’all!
Life is good. I am good. I feel great, I am back on my feet. I am mentally balanced again and feel good. I am functional once more.
Now, how does this affect me writing-wise? Hark! Well!
Understandably, I’ve been writing it up! Chaos and Kuryo’s novel is making great progress (I think) but there’s another novel that’s come back into my zone and that is -> Ranger!
Ohh, yeah. That one. I love that story so much.
I mean, it’s one of my oldest, having roots back in my childhood. Ranger is absolutely my favorite character of all time, and it took me ages to develop her character to what it is right now – and I love her that way. But let’s put this down for the record -> she’s fucking hard to write.
You know that person who you just * don’t * understand? Who you can never understand how or why they do what they do? That just blows your mind every so often? For me, that’s Ranger. That means that whenever I reach her scenes, I’m starting with expectations that are usually wrong. I’m best off starting with a blank slate and working from there with no expectations whatsoever.
That being said, the story also gives me headaches. I don’t want to give y’all spoilers, but really, it’s * complicated * people just aren’t who they ought to be and gah! Every scene is important and I’ve been so bogged down by the plot of it all. Now, to get it written, I really just have to let it go and let the story breathe. Just ouuuffff, breathe.
However, when I get stuck in Ranger’s story, I get really stuck. I stopped writing a while ago because of just that, and two days ago I got unstuck! Huzzah!
So what does this mean? Will I be releasing Ranger’s story too, alongside Chaos’? I don’t think so. I think for now, I will keep Ranger for myself. I will release it when it’s all pretty and edited, I think. But that doesn’t mean I won’t spam you with any art I make for it, heheheh!
Anyways, as far as Chaos and Kuryo are concerned, things are going well. The only real hiccup is that I have a certain scene of Lucifer & Chaos stuck in my head, but I feel it’s going to be much later in the story. Still, every scene I write I’m like “will this be ‘it’?” and that expectation just makes it so much harder to write. I’m trying so hard not to rush the romance, and I’m worried it’s coming out of the blue a bit too much so gah!
Also, I’m super intrigued for this new villain. I like, totally didn’t see them coming but now I super want to draw them.
And, anyone wondering where the fringe over the eye idea came from, it’s actually a thing in shamanism to cover the shaman’s eyes with a fringe to allow the shaman to enter a trance easier by reducing visibility, as seen in the band Heilung.
So that’s it! I’m really hoping to get a couple thousand more words crunched in today, as well as maybe a drawing and oooh, maybe a podcast as well! I hope y’all are well, and will keep me posted with your lives! Take care y’all!
