Something I forgot to add in the previous post: because of that dream, I’m now trying my best to not let certain areas touch each other. No two books about werewolves (on Earth anyway, Moonlight Reign was the exception) no two books about vampires, no two books about gods. Even, in one instance (and possibly more, knowing me) certain characters will guest star in other series. (In Black and White is a motherload of those kinds of things, and I like to reuse my characters.) I mention this because it’ll come back in a minute.
So anyway, I’m incredibly pensive today, and it’s almost ten in the morning. I was also thinking more about “what-if” senarios, and many more little ideas I’ve had on the side, and wondering which should I resurect and which should I not.
Take Werewolf Games for example. Good plot, good characters. It was written alright, but it needs a facelift. And another thing. Going with the thing I mentioned above, the rule that no two races shall appear in different series, this one blows that idea out of the water. The werewolf and vampire mythology is completely different, too, so much so that I can’t fix it to fit in Nightlife with the rest of my stories. The only way I can really get away with it is if I give the story to one of the Rebellion Writers, and they can do with it what they want. But, again, the stroy itself wouldn’t be written. What happens after her story ends will be written, which kind of defeats the purpose. So, really, The Werewolf Games will never see daylight, dispite it’s awesomeness. Maybe I’ll post it on here, and the few people that gift this blog with an appearance can give me some idea of how to keep it alive. Until, then, I think it should be scraped.
In Black and White is being resurected. It needs major surgeory, though, before it can even stay awake for more than a few minutes. So much so, I’m keeping the characters and changing almost everything else. This one is my attempt at Science Fiction, and with the changes it should be alright.
Um…let’s see here. Corrigan’s Story is on the brink. It breeches into demon territory, and that scares me a bit. It requires a little bit more detication and research then I’m used to. So I don’t know. He’s cool enough where I might.
Then there’s thousands of possible backstories to be worked upon for Divine Wars. So many I know I wouldn’t be able to write them all. I could write about the rise and fall of Arazorn the Dark, I could write about…a certain character’s falling out with his brother…of Magnus’s journey to Comatas and ultimately Earth…the list never ends. So Divine Wars will never die, thankfully, and of that I am greatful. I’m even think about, when the series is done, to take another one of their incarnations and set them off on another adventure.
Then, just looking at the Nightlife vampire family tree I’ve been working on since I first thought up the book, there are hundreds more to go on in that series, and thousands more that could be done that I still need to add. And this is excluding the large amount of werewolves, which could also have a lot of potential.
Speaking of werewolves, I drew an awesome picture last night. It’s of a girl with long white hair, her hands folded as if she’s praying, her back to the viewer. Her black dress is wripped open, with claw marks on her back. She looks fiercely sad, which unfortunatly I couldn’t capture in my version.
Original vs. Mine
Haha! And you thought I was dead, didn’t you? Or, if you’re like me, you could be thinking. “She thinks people won’t read this think, just is letting it die…”. Well I thought about it. A lot. I actually decided I was for a while, but then I went on some other writer girl’s blog and thought: “Huh. This is kind of cool. Weird, but cool. I’ve got to get me one of these!”
And then I recalled: Huh, I do have one of these. And came back on here. So, I’m bored out of my mind to the point of writing about by new ideas (and my revamped old ones) on here for you people to look at.
The one I’m working on now, Divine, From the Dark (otherwise known as Stripped of Darkness. I changed the title.) has so much that needs to be done, I don’t know where to start on it. So I’ve been trying to work on Divine, Retribution (otherwise known as Reclusive, the sequel. I changed that title too.) And that one is a lot harder when you really don’t know what’s going to happen in the first one, so that going quite sluggishly.
And Moonlight Reign (no title change there), is going well, much better than the other, but I’ve decided to reconstruct the first…fifty pages or so, which leads me to groan with the very thought of writing it. (Too bad, because I really want to sometimes.)
And so, with two on standby, it leaves only the Werewolf Games (the other one got scrapped pretty quickly). And the Werewolf Games is a very long story. I had an idea for a vampire book a long long time ago, but put it on standby until I got older (so I don’t screw it up, because I will if I write it now) that I called Origin. Both books, I found, could quite easily fit together. So, I decided to put them together, along with another vampire book I just thought up.
So, now, I have three series’. Divine Wars, Moonlight, and Nightlife (in order) and I’m happy with them all. Two of which, can be adapted with either new characters or old ones. Nightlife has all different main characters, but the side characters are simply old main characters. For instance, Connor, the king of the vampires (so to speak, it’s more complicated than that) is the main character in Origin, yet in Werewolf Games and The Dead Life, he’s a great side character that comes up a lot. Just like the main character, Nikolai, in The Dead Life, ended up being in The Werewolf Games and part of Origin. But in Moonlight you have completely different characters, but in the same world. Except in one, that’s basically a sequel to Moonlight Reign, picking up where the character left off twenty years earlier. But anyway, I ramble, and have taken up enough of you peoples’ time already.
Okay. I haven’t been on in god knows how long but I have an excuse (no I don’t, but just smile and pretend I know what I’m talking about.) and lots of rants. First off, I worked on a new cover for my books. Just an idea then I’ve been working on. Nothing to serious. Might blend it into the sequel for Werewolf Games though.
Not titled. I thank all of the wonderful people at photobucket for allowing a maniac like me on the website to make these things for. And plus I have absolutely no idea where I found these (I don’t write the names down) and even if I did, I know photoshop well enough to know that I’ll never know who to thank anyway. So, if you drew one of these- whoever you are- I thank you. The girl up on the top laying backwards, she reminds me of the girl in the top left (blurry I know, but best I can do) and so, they are supposed to be the same person. Kind of. But for all normal purposes, yes, it’s the same girl. The one on the bottom left in the water is Morrigan. I stick her there after I realized that the characters could totally fit into the sequel I’m planning. (And in case you didn’t know, Morrigan was the main character in The Werewolf Games) The punk girl in the bottom right hand corner, her name is Rymona and to put it lightly she’s a bitch. But she’s a cool bitch in any case. (Happens to be my favorite character actually) The one next to her in the long dress is another girl named Valerie (But that’s not what people call her, her nickname’s Reed), and the one laying on the stars is Raven. The cool chick. The heroine (Funny how the main character isn’t the heroine.) and the guy in the upper left, his name is Chase. Or was. Or maybe still is. I haven’t decided yet. It’s up for debate.
Anyway, I was oober bored on Easter so I sat there and made this. And it’s not one of my best one’s either. No comparison to Stripped of Darkness:
Or Reclusive (Which honestly needs to get editied):
Or even the first Moonlight Reign (Back when it was children of Reno):
Which also needs editing, but I guess that’s life. And keep in mind that Stripped of Darkness (Reclusive is it’s sequel) was the first one I did, while Moonlight Reign was the second. And Fable being the latest before throwing together the top one.Speaking of pictures I need to go and find some new pictures of anime characters. I’m percariously close to using the same characters more than once. (I probably already did on some of the other ones too) I sure spend enough time there, looking for more to add to my one million icons collection (I sort them into the different series’ they apply too. No dissing, Lily does it too.) Anything really to avoid writing more. I’ve hit a dead end again, and I want to work on Reclusive again like I’m supposed to be doing. And… Jeez, did I really do that bad a job of covering up Caleb’s shirt? [stares in shock] ouch. Thank god I’m not using that one anymore. Where is that anyway? I’ll have to go search my computer again… Anyway, you’ve gotten your update and I don’t feel guilty anymore. I’d better go work on elipsis (more on that later) and I’ll get back to being an idiot later.
