Yeah, it’s from the movie Number 23, you guessed it, good job… Do you want a cookie for that? Come on scram, you piss me off!
Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
This is a sentence that comes back in my head quite often. To me, it means that everyday is a day where you can make an important choice about your life, like choosing the studies you want to pursue, choosing to start a blog or choosing to start publishing a story on that blog. Unfortunately, sometimes it also means that each day is the day it seems like you will change your life, meaning you try to change but you always end up in the same old spot.
I don’t say that to scare you off or depress you, but it’s true. If you set goals to yourself you have to do anything to achieve them, even if they seem very unlikely or far away, by working hard, you will get closer bit by bit. That is what I’m trying to do with this blog, I’m trying to get closer to the point where my story will finally be finished. It’s not as easy as I expected, I also spend a lot of time doing other things, so I struggle to get there. But for once I don’t intend to let this chance go, I want to keep writing and I will!
Today I published the sixth chapter of Stanley, and I think I got things to go smoothly once again. If you read my previous Quotidian you might know that I was stuck with plot that didn’t follow the path I had imagined at first, but I think I got the hang of it now, if everything goes well it will be as awesome (and weird and stupid) as what I had planned!
I also asked for help to find an artist that would be willing to collaborate with me on a web comic/manga adaptation of Of Shadow and Feathers in the future, we’ll see how that goes but I’m excited, it would be so awesome!
Also, and finally, I’ve started a rhythm of about 600 words per day on Of Shadow and Feathers, which means that there should be a chapter published each week, more if ever I decide to kick up the pace, and I will try to do the same with Forging so that the story progresses too. Oh and with Echoes of power too! (Dang, almost forgot that one!) I really want to get it over with these chapters that I have to re-write and translate because I have many ideas but I don’t want to start writing again until I get to the point where I have to if I want to continue the story.
Anyways, you should see chapters pop up regularly (even if less often) from now on! Also, the Quotidians and Stanley will both continue to be posted on a daily basis.
Finally, before I go, here is a nice tutorial I found on how to create a blog and to promote it, it’s really cool and easy to read. Got great tips on how to improve the promotion of my blog from it! (I have work to do on that by the way!) Hope you enjoy it to!
Okay, back to work now, have some physical exercise to do and some writing too!
See ya people! ;)
PS : I don’t know if you are the same but I couldn’t work without the Proofread button that WordPress offers, it’s saved my life so many times!
