Now that summer has finally started (Blegh. I hate the heat) I seem to be doing better at doing the creative things I ought to be doing.
I still have a bit of school, but I’m currently working on a way to keep busy with school and writing. I have been horrible with schedules for months now, but anyone who cared to read my earlier posts this year know that already.
I read one of the writing exercises I wrote last year, and my stars. I actually love it a lot. I love the way I wrote one of my characters, he was just the way I want him, though the protagonist’s dialog and a few other things need to be edited, it’s still pretty darn good.
And I am still planning on finishing that short story. I was going to rewrite the last few paragraphs when I was distracted by school, and procrastination. So Look forward to that, and the Rook and Raven excerpt after I edit them both.
“Raven stayed in bed most of the time after Sam first went missing. Not eating, or getting up much. Causing some unhealthy weight loss. She had paid leave from her work for as long as a year and a half, so she didn’t have any where to be. All those unused vacation days coming into use.
People would call, wanting to go out in town with her. Raven replying that she had something important to do. Or that she felt ill that day.
She felt the whole city judging her. The girl who’s friend disappeared, missing without a trace. Who was there when it happened. Traumatized by what occurred that day. But what had happened? And why couldn’t she talk about it, or say where he went. Why couldn’t she?”
A bit of how Raven might have felt during her first few months after the trauma. And a bit of how bad she was getting before her brother stepped in. Truthfully, I enjoy writing strong emotion like that of a character with depression, or in an emotionally taxing situation.
Lately, jutting down ideas in a notebook has certainly been helping me remember concepts. And I’m looking forward to actually starting my book. The course I’ve been taking is really helping me flesh it all out. I’m super excited.
I did have a fun time writing out some story with my friend for fun. Role play writing is good practice for getting into the habit of writing everyday.
I also started an art blog on Tumblr. Which should help me with sharing my art, as this is sort of helping me share my writing.
Hopefully it will help me improve in both as well.
I’m not sure if there was a point in writing this entry… But hey, I posted something.
Hello good readers. This being my first blog post, let me introduce myself. I am Saoirse Moore. And this is my writing blog.
Here, I will be posting chapters of stories i’m working on, possibly art in the future, and simply updates on what’s going on.
Part of the reason why I’m posting this is because I want at least one post until I get get the writing program I need. The the chapters of The Welsh Entity I do have need to be edited. And I have been to busy with a move to edit them thoroughly.
I will also edit the page explaining the plot of the story, considering I am not happy with it.
I’m going to school very soon, but i’m almost moved completely in my new house.
This is post is actually getting quite rambly. So I bid you goodbye.
