My Weblog











{September 18, 2010}   Oh, Crap…

I promised myself that I would work on this blog more often, and I really believed I would. Until, of course, I randomly remember that my last post was September 2nd. My dedication is truly admirable.

For those following me here, I’ve changed my mind about which story I would publish online here. I’ve swapped “Audrey” with my ingenious “When You Don’t Know Something”, accurately named as I truly could not think of something to name it. I did not have a plot idea, or anything for that matter, when I first started. Just the character Lyssi Stavidri and a new word document. Kudos to me, it is now four chapters long, and three of those are already here.

“Audrey” will join “Lyssi”, just for the sake of me being productive. Currently, I’m supposed to be working on five novels. “Okay” is named after the main character. You will notice that I do that a lot. Actally, “Okay” is about Kay Thomas, a secret agent on my fictional island Main Brooke. So far all of my stories have occurred there. Another story is “Gita”, a nineteen year old teacher who thinks too much for her own good. I haven’t touched that file in a while either. You think I would learn by now? Writing is like a fire slowly burning within me; new ideas are like wood for the flame. I start stories which seem really promising (at least to me), then I let my schoolwork or my laziness distract me, and I leave the story collecting dust for a little while. I honestly need some encouragement.

“Audrey”, of course, is the third story I’m supposed to be writing and editing. I hope you’ve noticed the key word ‘supposed’. In addition to “When You Don’t Know Something”, I’m supposed to be writing a soul-themed novel with my best friend whose Capoeira name is Supresa. I’ll add something every Thursday, then.

Okay, these words are now on the web, permanent in my eyes. Hopefully, I’ll keep up that promise. On to the world of writing and studying.

Peace always,
