Day 15

While my personal life is going into disarray, I’ve decided to forge on and make moves with my writing. When I feel that I’ve exhausted my thought processes, I begin to read and so I’ve pulled a book off of my shelf and started to sift through it. While it’s a somewhat random choice, the nature of the book has both elements of fantasy and of mythology which coincides with both elements that I’m trying to work out in two separate stories.

I’ve started to read this charming piece of 360 some odd pages:

I haven’t made up my mind of if I like it or not, but I do love the idea that there are several narratives going on, with interconnecting characters and one first person narrative from a god-like being. I feel that this may help me hone the way in which I handle my own characters in my ancient egyptian mythological piece.

Alas, if I intend on finish any story before the new year, I only have three nights and two days to do so. I don’t think there’s any story I have that I can finish in that time unless I throw caution to the wind and make a really short story out of the many beginning lines that I have. Let’s see what I can do.

Day 4

 

As of late, I’ve been continuing my route of reading through some ancient egyptian text to get a grasp on the religion for a story. As it is, the text is so differentiated through the translators and locations, that I’m not exactly sure of what I’m looking for. I hope that I can find it soon.

Aside from that, I’ve been writing on 750words.com and managed 608 words between two days. Not my finest, but I’m still working on it. I made a dent of one page per story, so that has to account for something. My body is tired and I’m struggling to keep up, but I’m determined to push my writing back to the forefront of things. It’s what I love, and I’ve got to keep doing it. At all costs.

W/love
