A Trip Into A Fantasy World! Or is it a gaming world? What is it??

I know, I know! I promised to be better about updating this blog more often but hey! It’s only been a week this time! So, wanna know what I’ve been up to? Do you? You don’t? Well, I’m gonna tell you anyways.

As some of you may know I’ve restarted work on the fantasy gaming world that I once attempted then tossed aside. With Revival being set aside for the moment so the other authors and I can concentrate on our solo work I have been able to throw myself completely into this project and I am loving the results. Notebooks full of information and notes and creatures and races and all sorts of fun stuff!

This is a whole new ballpark for me, this world of writing fantasy. I’ve said it before but my normal area is in realistic settings. Modern times with modern people. Now I’m writing in a mix of a fantasy world that is actually a video gaming world that is set in a futuristic world! It’s all sorts of crazy and I’m loving every moment.

The only difficult parts I have encountered so far are the things that separate a fantasy world in a novel from the world of a gaming companies creation. In a fantasy world you want everything to feel real. All of the settings, the creatures, the races, real! Where as in a gaming world you know it is not all real and can have fun with things. The trouble is making sure that while the gaming world can be fun and feel like a ‘game’ that the story and plot of the people in the world remain real. I think I have a good handle on it but we shall see.

Let me end this with a question to you guys. What is your comfort zone in writing? What genre or theme are you most comfortable writing in? Are you a mystery writer who gets lost trying to throw in romance? Are you a science fiction thriller writer who flounders like a fish out of water in a medieval comedy story? What are your strengths and what are your weaknesses?

As always, Have a good day and happy writing!

Camp Nanowrimo is right around the bend!

Are you guys as pumped as I am for NaNoWrimo to start? I am and am not tackling a project as big as last time. This time around I am handling two different projects. The one is the work on Revival: Rise of the Black Dragon, as I have mentioned in previous posts, as well as the 50 short stories challenge.

Now, I have not exactly figured out what I will be doing those short stories on as in; Will they be centered around Revival characters? Will they revolve around characters in my solo novel series? Will they be unrelated, random stories? I haven’t decided! But I will let you guys know and I promise to be more active on here during the month and I will be posting a lot of writing Excerpts or full short stories so you guys will have something to read.

But enough about me! What about you guys? Are you doing Nano? Are you planning or pantsing? What genre are you aiming for? Is it something new to you or something familiar? Leave a comment and lets talk about it! There are almost 50 of you guys but not much interaction here. Lets change that!!

As always, have a good day and happy writing!!

Satsuki Fukumoto [Playlist]

Revival: A Novel Series

Playlist featuring my original character, “Satsuki Fukumoto.” Just a brief glance into my seventeen year-old musician:

Satsuki is the epitome of innocence, gentleness, and grace. She loves life and tries to see the good in every human being, regardless of how much the world has given up on them. When others believe that there is no hope left for the individual or that there is no turning back for them, Satsuki takes that person by the hand and tries to lead them from going even further astray. Like a shepherd tending to lost sheep and protecting them from the evil wolves, Satsu is also a protector of the weak and defenseless.

Away for the weekend!

Kyo will be going away on a camping trip for the weekend so I will not be around to post as the mountains have very limited cell service but I will hopefully have a lot to tell you all when I return. After all, a weekend on horseback up in the mountains with plenty of silence and scenery to lose myself in always seems to help jump start the creative juices. I remember going on a trail ride for several hours during April’s Camp Nanowrimo and gaining so much inspiration.

Granted, it was inspiration for a completely  new story and in no way helped Camp but still! I had great ideas flowing and with the restart of my untitled video-gaming-politics-of-war-and-blood novel s little creative surge is a great thing!

What about you guys? Do you find being out in nature good for getting your brain working? Or do you get more muse from a crowded city and a round of people watching? Drop a line and let me know!
