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.
