One thing this year has done, is make me look at things I haven’t in a long time. Yesterday I looked at Miles To Go for the first time in over a year. I forgot how much I loved writing that story honestly. It’s dark, it’s twisted and I’m proud of it. It got my brain thinking about it and I started reworking the chapters I never posted, figuring out what had me so stuck before. And today I started writing.
So I’m posting an update to Miles To Go. I’ll be honest and say I don’t know if I’ll be back to this story consistently. But I wanted to post this anyway, because this story deserves that.
So enjoy the latest chapter. Remember I also cross post on Archive Of Our Own if you like the format there better.
Writing is my escape. Enough said.
I should be on a trip to Chicago to see Julie (y’all know Julie), my ZDR partner in crime along with our friends, and we should be getting ready to see the Boys three times this week. Sadly that’s not happening. But that’s okay. Now we have a crazy road trip planned for next year and we’re seeing them five times together. And I added an extra show to see with my friend Andie in LA. Still depressing but this year I’m focusing on myself, bettering myself, and doing what makes me happy. Writing is one of those things. I’m on vacation which is more staycation, but it also means writing! It could mean blogging on my BSB site The Dark Side, and it probably means fiction writing too. Either way I’m in my writing cave for a week.
So enjoy Chapter Three of When The Daylight’s Gone.
Or as I like to say, Happy Zombie Jesus Day!
It seems I can focus on blogging or fic writing but not both. Which for now is okay. This has definitely been a good way for me to channel some stress from everything going on in the world right now. Please stay safe and inside. I myself, am an essential worker and I can’t stress this enough.
I’ve been productive so I thought I’d post Chapter Two of When The Daylight’s Gone early but don’t expect me to post Chapter Three before May LOL. Here’s hoping the streak continues and that I am able to blog on my fan site as well. Please enjoy and let me know your thoughts! Either here or on AO3. While I always write for my own personal satisfaction I can’t stress enough what feedback does to help motivate writers.
This is sooner than I planned to post this but I’m feeling inspired by a lot of current events. To force myself to stay on track though I’m not going to let myself update sooner than once every three weeks. So in about three weeks if I write like I plan to, then I’ll update again. No sooner. I don’t want to fall off on this idea! I’ve also just missed posting and I think that will motivate me as well. We’ll see.
I’m also on Archive Of Our Own, in case you didn’t know. My profile, is of course ZombieRainbowRose. So if you’re more comfortable commenting there then go for it.
I would love to know your thoughts, so please share them.
I give you…When The Daylight’s Gone.
I miss fic writing. I actively still write but it’s typically for my BSB fan blog The Dark Side. But the thing is I never stopped writing fiction, crazy as that is to believe. I know I practically fell off the face of the fic world. It’s because I became so inconsistent that I felt bad making promises that I wasn’t keeping. Posting new ideas because I was excited and then watching as I failed to follow through. What happened is basically I would get new ideas, start them and then repeat the process with newer ideas.
But I never stopped writing. My goal for 2020 is to try and get out this fic I’ve been working on. My partner in crime, Julie… (y’all know Broken Julie, the Choppage Queen!) knows about this idea. I literally brainstormed it while at a museum with her. She helped me flesh it out in fact. But I promised myself I wouldn’t post it till I have ten chapters.
I’m not there…yet. But here’s the banner for my upcoming project, and the summary. I’ve gotten a lot more productive since I bought a Chromebook back in November and I’m hopeful. So if you’re reading this, know I haven’t gone away from the fan fic world forever. Life just has a way of moving and getting in the way the older you get.
It’s always darkest before the dawn…
They say there is a reason for everything, that God has a plan for us all. Nick didn’t know that what started off as just another day would set off a chain of events that threatened everything that mattered most to him.
I miss fanfiction. I’m horribly stuck on Miles To Go (well, I know where it’s going but it’s writing it that’s been difficult). I started that story as a challenge and man, has it been. In good ways and bad. That said, I miss fanfic. I’ve been sitting on this new idea, but I’ve held off in my efforts to focus. It’s not working. I have no idea how consistent I’ll be but I’m inspired and I decided to hell with it. Post a new story and see what happens.
So I give you… Inside The Grey.
But I never dropped my stories. Life (and planning said story out properly) got in the way. There’s nothing I could say besides…I’m sorry. Hopefully some of you are still reading! If you are, thank you for sticking with me.
Enjoy the latest update for…Miles To Go.
Life got in the way, and Miles To Go had fallen to the wayside. It sucked but my motivation was in the toilet, essentially. But then, I got a review out of nowhere. Just general praise but it made me go back and look at my twisted little story. It reminded me of why I loved it. And it got me writing. So thank you reviewer. This is the effect reviews can have on a writer.
Enjoy the new chapter of Miles To Go!
My zombie gave to me…a completely finished Song For The Undead.
I don’t even have words for the fact this story is finished. Julie and I have been writing it since 2008 (though we didn’t start posting till 2009). We lost a cowriter in the early stages but the amount of love and support this story has gotten has been unreal. I remember when we started it as 4.15.12, and I never thought this story would become the epic it became or that it would take this long. But I’m so happy we wrote it.
And don’t worry, Julie and I have collaborations that will come in the future!
So, enjoy the final chapter of Song For The Undead.
My zombie gave to me…
Nine Nick’s dancing!
We’re almost at the end. Enjoy Chapter 119!
