For a few weeks I stopped writing, and just did a lot of reading… well, I obviously did other things too, but the time that I normally allocated to writing, was whittled down to nothing lol. Sorry about not informing everyone that I was taking a short break, but I felt kinda weird about writing a post about it; I didn’t really plan to completely halt my progress, it just happened?
Anyway, before that relatively long reprieve I had written the first 2 chapters of “Questing” which are about 10k words total, and the last two days I finished working on the third chapter. I had originally intended for it to be a short side-story or maybe a long one-shot lulz, then it turned into more of a spin-off.
Even-though I personally like it, I’m still hesitant to start posting the chapters… because I know that there will be plenty of obnoxious people who will say things like “Stop wasting your time on this story, and keep writing the original.” or “I like this story much better than the other one, so focus on this one more.” and there’s probably going to be complaints about the different writing style.
Maybe some authors can easily brush off insults and trolling, but I just haven’t reached that level of enlightenment yet rofl, I still care what my readers think :P. If someone tells me that my story is bad, it seriously bothers me, and makes it difficult for me to concentrate on writing seriously; thus, I’m hesitant to reveal the chapters that I’ve written so far, because I’ve invested too much time and effort into “Questing” to simply give up on it.
What will most likely happen, is that I will finish the first part of “Questing” which will most likely have at least 5 chapters, then I’ll start working on chapter 6 of Immortal Soul’s main-story. I think that I’ve gotten pretty good at writing in third person now, so I will probably be able to create a chapter that I find satisfactory; then chapter seven will most likely be the Lorelei chapter, then another Michael chapter, then maybe an Amber chapter for the first time ever, and back to Michael for the final few chapters of Act 4.
Keep in mind that I am truly horrible at planning things, so nothing that I said in the last paragraph should be taken too seriously lol. Although, I’ve been planning the Act like that since the very beginning, things change, and I can’t be sure of what I’ll do until I actually do it rofl.
Since I can’t think of anything else to say, here’s a video of cats doing weird, but cute, things!
Also, I still haven’t decided yet, but I’ll probably add a fifth member to the ‘party’ in “Questing” so I kinda need to decide on their race. I was originally going to make ‘him’ a human, because Julia is seriously the only human character in the entire story so far lmao. However, cat-tribe, dog-tribe, and fox-tribe are all basically humans, plus tails and animal ears, so I could also do something like that. The team is currently, 3 females and one male, so it feels kinda unbalanced… it’s definitely not a harem, but an extra male would be nice. Of course, I did think of adding in a dryad or some other kind of ‘neutral’ gender person. Maybe a male fairy(basically just an elf with insect-like wings, normal-ish sized versions of pixies lol) or some other race that I haven’t thought about yet lol.
(Currently working on chapter 5 of “Questing” 🙂
If anyone wants to proof-read(You don’t actually have to edit anything, just read what I’ve written so far and tell me what you think of it) I could really use a confidence booster lol. There are already four unedited chapters of “Questing” which I’ve written so far, but I’m planning on writing chapter 5 and maybe a sixth chapter before actually editing and posting them… it would be nice if I could have some proof-readers to help me out 😛 but I’m not getting my hopes up lol.
