another non-chapter update, sorry!
okay so I got a “new” laptop, but it will still be a while before I can post anything more as I have to take the hard drive out of the Dell and transfer my files to this laptop with a file transfer USB thingy, I forget what they’re called exactly. Gonna probably be a few weeks before I can order one off Newegg.
also this blog has a new follower, hello new person whom I hope is not a spambot
aw jeez I haven’t posted on here in a REALLY long time
I want to add another chapter but rn I can’t even work on the story as the laptop it is saved on has been broken since May (dead DC jack) and I still need to get it fixed. (Right now I’m using my ancient slow-assed Compaq.)
it will probably be another few months at least, I need to save some money
I do have it on my external HDD, but I am not sure if it’s the latest version, plus the ext. HDD doesn’t work on this laptop very well (there’s not enough power in the USB port so the drive shuts off/stops spinning after a few minutes and there’s no way to turn it back on)
Next chapter to come up HOPEFULLY soon (I may or may not just be lazy), but I’m thinking about re-writing parts of previous chapters and taking out the Mala’hekians’ wings, as they’re hardly ever actually used and when Emyll escapes back to Mala’hek nobody ever asks her what happened to hers. For the part when Vru flies over the forest of Ersia looking for Ika I’ll just have him sprinkle the flying powder he got from Silut over himself (it should last long enough, I think).
Just finished this chapter.
Okay, this is the last chapter I have so far. This chapter is finished, but right now there’s nothing after it. So it might be a little while before the next chapter goes up. (also: arrgh tumblr whyfor are you not taking away underlines with the strikethrough button like you usually do? :/)
I’m getting really close to the end of what I have so far, but I’ve got ideas for some more chapters. So after I think one or two more chapters it will be a while before this updates again.
A little bit of Emyll’s history. For those of you who read the last chapter—no, I didn’t skip one. >:D
This is kind of a long chapter. Also: Cliffhanger, yo!
Haven’t posted in a few days. I think this is one of the shorter chapters.
Emyll discovers a new island, one that Vru and Ika don’t know about.
Since I’ve (finally!) started watching Leverage I keep imagining Ika as looking not entirely unlike Beth Riesgraf, only green.
This is a fairly short chapter, so I think I’ll post one more after this. Also, I think I’ll go back and tag posts with characters and places that appear most in the respective chapter.
An entire chapter of Emyll. (BTW, that’s em-EEL, not EM-ull) I remember this chapter being really fun to write.
I kept forgetting to post this! ANYWAY here it is for the probably two people who are reading this. If that many. :/
More Emyll, and Ika and Vru start their journey.
Forgot to post this yesterday!
A bit late tonight (I was gone most of the day) but… my favorite character to write comes back in this chapter woooo
Uff… is anyone actually reading this? ANYWAY.
In the late afternoon sun, a pale-blue-skinned woman was hiding behind a dheku bush, her wings fluttering slightly in the breeze, silently watching two other blue-skinned people who were sitting on the grass. It was apparent that they could not see her, as neither of them called attention to the bush the woman was hiding behind, nor indeed even looked at it. She could be as stealthy and silent as a cat when she needed to be, and right now, she did, and was. And she could wait all night if she had to in order to carry out what she’d been planning for several days.
This is where I’ll be posting chapters (probably one per day) of the as-yet-untitled book I’ve been working on (for lack of a better term). The first two chapters are very loosely based on a short story I wrote when I was about thirteen; nine or ten years later I rewrote/revised it, then wrote a sequel that, much like the Energizer Bunny, kept going… and going… and going… you get the idea. So I changed the ending of the rewritten first story to make it flow better and I just stuck the two together, and I’ve got about 127 pages so far I think. I get writer’s block up the wazoo so I’ve only got 27 or 28 chapters so far in the ten or so years since I merged the two stories. Maybe I’ll be motivated to write in it more often if I post chapters here. Anyway, next post will be the first chapter (under a cut of course).
Oh btw: I probably won’t follow anyone with this blog, you can of course follow it but I only follow back with my personal blog, mysticalchicken.tumblr.com
