Hello! We’re back with another end of month fiction piece! This one is from the same universe as New Home and Second Chances Hospital, this focuses on Sam. He’s a human that has the power to see faeries and talk with them too. I’m going to write more about him and his life a bit later, but for now I’m going to post a piece about Sam talking about his gift. He doesn’t really have a problem with it and I can’t wait to explore more about his life and how faeries play out in it. Enjoy!
Hello! I’m going off my hiatus a bit to promote a fellow writer I met on Dreamwidth. Her name is Shipwrecklight and she writes stories about the lives of assassins and it’s pretty cool. She has a website that’s here! She also helps run a community for original fiction also on Dreamwidth called rainbowfic and it accepts genres of all kinds. I’m on there too and it’s a very welcoming community too! Here it is! I highly suggest you check both out because she’s an awesome writer and she runs an awesome community for original writing.
Hello! This week I posted the first revised chapter of New Home and I’m very happy with it. Before I begin with my post of Will’s character design can someone help me make an ebook cover for Jukepop? I got accepted (woo!) but I want to make a good cover for my story and I’m a bit confused as to how to do it. Any help is appreciated. Now let’s get to the early character design of Will. Now I’m not too good at designing men as I am women on The Sims 3 but I hope this is looks good.
Here’s my first idea for how Will looks in my head:
If there is something wrong with their designs let me know. I’m sure I’ll have more designs next time, but this is what I have in mind for now. I’ll put a poll at the end of this post. Let me know what you think!
So I didn’t have a very good week. It’s great to work in the same major for like close to six years and be told that you’re gonna need 78 more credits to graduate. So as expected I’ve had a fantastic week dealing with the news and trying to get things back on track. While I was feeling awful I looked at my characters and wondered who I could inflict some pain on. Or if I’ve inflicted enough pain who should get something unexpectedly good happen to them.
I read many things that say put emotions in the story. Like write how you feel and I wondered if I should do that? Like place an unexpected thing and shake things up for everyone. Not Will and Cass yet (heh…heh…heh…) but for the other million stories I have sitting on my hard drive or on other sites. I have many things spread out that I’ll put on here one day, but I’m wondering if I should make my characters hurt like me or give them a really good time to work out my frustration. (I’ve done this many times before).
What do you all think? Do you all release stress the same way?
This is the first post of the day. The update to New Home will come later on in the afternoon. ^^
So when I’m sick I always think of so many things. I think it’s because I can’t get up and write that I think about everything and anything. So this time while I was sick I thought about happy endings (not those XD) the ones you find in fiction. I’ll say it, I like happy endings. I rarely read a book or story that doesn’t have one. Happy endings are my preference and I enjoy it alot. I guess my biggest reason for liking happy endings is everything is wrapped up and the parties involved are happy (for now), but still happy. An ending like that isn’t guaranteed in RL. Sure, you may end up getting the good side of the coin and having a good life, but it’s not guaranteed. At least if I know a story has a good ending that even after all the stuff that has been thrown the protagonist’s way it will work out in the end.
It’s a small comfort to know that even if I’m having a bad time or things are frustrating me left and right that my characters will have a happy time. You know after all the stuff I pile on them it makes me happy to know that even if it’s not a truly happy ending for some of my characters, it’s better than what they started out with. I’ve tried writing a sad ending and I don’t really feel right with it even if it fits the story. I have bittersweet endings too, but I do work hard to make sure that the characters get something good out of what happened.
I know that may sound naive and skeptic, but in reality nothing is promised. Even if you do everything “right”. At least a happy end can be promised in fiction.
Do you all like happy endings or would like a story to end on a sad/bittersweet note?
