It has definitely been a very long time since I last posted. I stopped writing to pursue other interests but with as much time I have had on my hand the last couple weeks I’ve finally returned to writing.
But it isn’t on my Waking Dreams novel. As much as I love the story as it is, but I’m currently stuck on one of the chapters. I’ve thought about skipping it and working on another one but then I’d have to back write the previous chapter.
So instead, I’ve come up with a new approach. I started writing on Krystal’s Path, a short story set in the same world as Waking Dreams. I’ll eventually need to change the title but its all still a work in progress anyways. But with this story comes some challenges I wouldn’t have faced while writing Waking Dreams. Mostly, it’s still a first-person narrative, but the viewpoint is feminine instead of masculine. And as a male that has proven tough one more than one occasion.
But the story is definitely fun. In its current form, it’s definitely going to need a lot of edits once the first draft is finished. But right now I’m focusing purely on getting through the story and its needs. Maybe once I’m done with the draft and some re-reading, I’ll get it polished to be far better.
And maybe with getting back into writing I can start writing my short or flash fiction stories again. I’ve definitely not been doing those as of most of the last year. So here’s to hoping I can get back into everything again.
