Yosh, so I finally found 5 minutes to write a journal XD huzzay! I want to take a moment and talk about the story I started writing. I don't know how long any of you have followed me for but, if you know me from my old account, you may know that I used to write a LOT of unfinished stories.
The truth is, when I was in High School I wrote one large looooong story and all the characters that I made for that story turned out to be characters that I love and would work with throughout my time at University. Characters like Dontas, for example, were born from said story.
However, during my time at University, a lot of really dark stuff happened to me that threw my self confidence in every aspect of my life, including my creativity. I threw away my original story and tried to make individual stories for my characters instead. These stories were never finished though because none of them ever felt right. Then, as new characters where born, I tried to slot my old characters into their stories and that too, never worked out. I was really upset about it all. I thought I was unable to create what I wanted but it's taken me until now to realise that, the only reason those stories never worked was because those characters were never meant to be in those worlds.
And so, I've shaken myself into seeing that I need to throw away my doubt instead of my ideas and just write the story I had originally intended to write.
Obviously the story itself has evolved and developed since my time writing it in HS but i feel it has changed for the better. So, if you feel up to the long task of following these characters, I will be posting the chapters here This story involves a bunch of characters never featured on my DA before (but I have had since the original story) and a bunch of my old favourites, Dontas, Tsule, Ty, Jerard, Evan...maybe even Loki will feature, along with my new love Elladan, to name but a few.
It has been a long time since I was writing anything like this and on this scale so I still feel very rusty but I'm easing back into myself as I go and it's really enjoyable ^^ I hope some of you out there will enjoy it too.
Sorry for rambling about my insecurities and anxiety but it really helps
Anyway! That's all for now ^^ anything you want to ask, i'll answer, just leave a wee comment Thanks guys!! xxxxxxxxx
