another sleepless night

I’m going to start this off by being a horrible blogger and apologize for how horrible I’ve been at blogging. School (and depression) has totally inundated me as of late. I took my first AP test last week, I have finals next week, and a lot of studying to do between then and now. Regardless, I felt like I had to update on here because next week is Phoenix ComiCon.

Yes. One week from today, I will be packing my bags for the Hyatt, securing my freebie prints with many rubber bands, and making sure everything is set on Transmagical‘s debut. I’ll probably post an update or five throughout PCC and talking about Transmagical and stuff. You have just over a week until Transmagical makes it official debut and you get to see that thing about which I’ve been talking. Then Ghost Runners launches. June, under Camp NaNoWriMo, is dedicated to The Secret of Giraffe Island, a serial adventure novel that I will be posting as chapters are finished.

Alongside that, I have just started another serial novel, concerning one of my favorite subjects. The World According to Loki (which has no relation to Marvel Comics, surprisingly) is a humorous (I hope) take on Norse mythology. The first part basically consists of Loki retelling Norse myths from his perspective. It gets weirder. It’s basically a sacrilegious funfest of doom with alcohol, crossdressing, and laughs (according to my friends). The title is a link, but you can also click here to read what I have posted. That one will update less frequently because of the massive chapters– chapter one, including its Scribe’s Note (my notes on alterations and translations), is nearly 4000 words long. Consider that one chapter is half the length of “Forged in Fire” (that’s a link, too) and realize how long that is.

I also hope to resume more frequent work on Another Sleepless Night this summer. I adore the characters and the plot, along with the stories that come in between what I have posted.

I have a lot of writing to do this summer: Transmagical and Ghost Runners, first and foremost, then Mindwarp & ErisCompass RoseThe Secret of Giraffe IslandThe World According to Loki, and Another Sleepless Night. There are also going to be short stories, of course, and maybe poetry. I do not know. I have two and a half months alone (aside from online econ, ew), and I plan on using them to their full extent.

And that’s how I’ve been.
