Here. I come here to write again. It is a good day, it’s been a good week. One of the most beautiful things about these last few days is the inspiration that is coming. The muse has returned and I don’t plan to let it go. Sure, my brain plays tricks on me whenever it feels like it, and I’m vulnerable.
There’s something I want to tell you, though, and it is about my short stories. Yeah, I said I’d be focusing more on my novel, and I didn’t lie. Though I don’t expect many results at the moment, I plan to write short stories; specially when I have finished my novel. I am going to take a break from it before moving on to the next, so I’ll use that time to blogging and share some stories with you all to know what’s up.
These short stories, of course, will be available here on my blog on the Stories section on this humble website, blog, or whatever you want to call this place. All for FREE!!!
One thing, though, that might scare you all away, but I believe it’ll be the most honest way to show you my writing work before even think about selling my novel, is the fact that I’ll be working alone on each short story that is destined to be posted here. That means I am going to write, beta read, and edit each one before posting. The purest form of the author.
Unlike my novel, of course; that’ll get all the work that is necessary to make a quality book with my personal, self-publishing, and professional resources. I am not just going to increase my numbers here to sell any garbage. I have options available for me whenever I feel the novel is ready.
At the top of this website you’ll see the sections. I am going to do my very best to bring up a lot of writing. Blogs and stories. I’m leaving out the reviews for now until I take that break before moving on to the next fantasy project.
I am still not sure what to expect from all of this. But I am finally happy to find a good place and good hours to keep my novel moving forward. My eyes feel heavy; all the time I’ve spent in front of the monitor is going to leave invisible scars, and I don’t mind any of them as long as the novels advance to their destinations.
I can’t wait to write the next Black Fields report. I promise a new entry’s coming up next week.
Clues, I have none. The short stories that are coming won’t be directly related to any of the books I plan to release. There’s one directly connected to the project For Her Moon, and the story is called A Sight of the Moon if you want to check it out. Black Fields, though, I don’t see how to make short stories that’d be linked. I am keeping the mystery until the end of the last novel. Yup, Black Fields is going to have a sequel. More on my next Project Journal entry.
Taking my time. Yes, I am doing that. There’s a good song that comes into my head while I write. The opening song of the anime Boogiepop and Others is more than perfect. I won’t say Black Fields took any inspiration from the series, because it did not, but every time I write more on these characters, I can’t help it, that opening is just too good to ignore.
Honestly, though, this might fit a lot better with the For Her Moon original idea. I cannot explain why it emphasizes more with Black Fields that has, by FAR, a whole different atmosphere. Maybe it is a sign that something must be done with the story, Maybe I am pushing it towards the right direction, or the wrong one. Who knows?
I want to believe the direction I’m taking with Black Fields is the right one. I am putting my heart on it, but I can actually see people getting kinda bored at the beginning. There’s “nothing to see” there; you’ll know what that means when the time comes. I hope it’s going to be soon.
The more I think about it the harder it gets. I question myself all the time. There’s no way for me to tell how good or bad are the things I am writing. That will make the trip more interesting, in my opinion. Maybe a giveaway or something of the sort to make some honest reviews available for future readers. I don’t know!
The only offering I have available at the moment is this humble website and my future posts.
Notice with this blog entry that I don’t feel very confident with my creations. I want to joke about it. I try to laugh about it. I succeed and I fail at the same time. Perhaps this is the way it should be. The more I write, the better I get. I hope that also translates into my new stories and novels.
