I received a flattering comment on Archive of Our Own (AO3) this week asking about this story.  The reader was worried The Broken Rose was going to be left to die, but I ensured them this wasn’t so.  I’m still diligently working on it.  Comments like that are so necessary when one feels down on their writing.  I haven’t had that issue thankfully, but I always appreciate knowing people anticipate what I have to offer.

Project: Story Audio Recording
Northern Lights
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Type: Fanfiction (FFVII) Novel
Status: Prepping
Progress: Editing Chapter 1

And we’re back at it!  I’ve had this in he works for a while.  Per planning for this year, I’m not far off in when I wanted to start working on it.  First things first is to do a reedit of each chapter before recording.  Then I have to hope my voice behaves.  I know it has something to do with the asthma medicine I take, and my doctor gave me a few tips/tricks to avoid that.  Once I’m satisfied with the recording, I want to add the appropriate (and copyright free) music where appropriate before posting.  This will also give me the opportunity to utilize my YouTube channel more frequently.  I might test my editing skills by making a video for the blurb…

In Progress

  • Games Alive – This is taking longer than I thought it would, but nearly everything I plan to be quick and easy does.  Non-blogging people underestimate how much time something that requires pictures, some research, and a brief explanation can take especially when you have to do 37 of them.  Ah well, it’s coming along.
  • Book Reviews – Uhhhhh, so I thought I posted the review for Never Never.  Wtf?  It’s sitting in my drafts, and I think I just need to edit and post it.  I swore I posted it and here on Goodreads.  Alright, well at least I’ll have something accomplished in the upcoming two weeks.  I another book review I’m in the midst of, too, but I’ve only done the preliminary prep for that one.

Not a very productive two weeks, but that seems to be the pattern.  I’ll have a really boss biweekly period and then then next one is less than stellar.  Daylight savings time is not helping this endeavor at all.  I freaking hate that we still do this *grumble*

Any creative projects on your plate that you’re willing to share?  Let’s hear about them in the comments!

  2. That’s cool that you’re working on doing your own audio. Also, very intimidating! But I sound like a 5 year old child when I can hear my own voice and do not want to subject anyone to it, therefore I have a complex about that sort of thing lol.

  4. Daylight Saving Time is the devil! lol I seriously hate it. >_<
    I'm slowly FINALLY getting my act together again when it comes to writing. I don't know what happened, but since the holidays I just haven't been able to get back into the swing of things when it comes to writing.
