So after what felt like a dearth of ideas, I now have several new ones flowing in. And they involve Mexico.
I guess my characters were mad they didn’t get to go, so now they’re going. Or at least two of them are. Be on the look out for that some time soon.
(hint hint: it’s the adventurous ones that are going.)
Also, this sprint continues from the one from Friday/Saturday. Continue reading
Yes, I am hopping on that train, despite the fact that it derailed a long time ago.
Back story on this sprint: Anya, fresh from her break up with Shahin (spoiler alert) and the end of her apprenticeship, goes to spend a few months with her mother, rather than returning straight to Falcon’s Landing. And we learn Vriss’s first name.
Also, my bad for posting this late. I was distracted by The Hobbit movie after work.
1, 2, 3 go! Continue reading
I find myself in a bit of a quandary, which is why there was no post on Monday. It’s not the lack of ideas, but rather what feels like a lack of originality on my part.
I feel as if the stories that I come up with are all eventually turning in the same direction, with the same ending, and its a cut and paste protagonist from a different story. I think I just need a refresher; do a sprint using a prompt rather than an idea straight from my head.
Or maybe talking it out helps. And by talking, I mean spilling my soul/troubles on you guys & gals. I think that’s the best form of therapy sometimes.
Sorry its a short post today, but this took forever to write. (At least an hour! That’s ridiculous!) I kept wandering away to do other things that I shouldn’t be doing. Like looking at tumblr; god damn you tumblr, you are so distracting. Expect a better post on Friday.
Thanks for listening, and thanks for sticking with me.
Sorry about not having a post on Monday. I got caught up in some other things and never did get around to posting. Also gonna go ahead and take Friday off, while I’m at it. Monday is a bit iffy, but I’m gonna try.
We’ll see how this goes. Continue reading
I love how Saint Patrick’s day in the US is just a huge excuse to go drinking and celebrate everyone’s pseudo Irish background. In honor of that, have a drunken General!
I think I finally found a guy for Atlanta to settle in with. Riga is someone that she would really have more of a business relationship with rather than a marriage. It’s a way to get what she wants (mostly) with out having to deal with someone that’s completely unbearable. And Riga is semi-good looking in the right light.
Just make sure you’re squinting or else you won’t see it. (At least that’s what Atlanta says.)
Bit o back story on this one: Atlanta and Riga would have worked out a deal in which Atlanta marries Riga to gain her freedom, because she knows too much to go home. The Empire uses the excuse that she is valuable to the colony she’s assigned to, but Atlanta knows its because she’s privy to one too many secrets. So she drags Riga home to meet the extended family, including the Irish uncles.
**Edit: AGAIN with the failing to pick the proper time to have the blog post! My bad y’all. I’ve not been paying very close attention this week.**
Back to Atlanta again this week. I’m still not sure what direction her story is going, but I do know this: she has a long journey ahead of her. I can’t give her a happy ending, I just can’t. It would ruin the story. Continue reading
