Double Dose Weekend 21.2. And The Winner Is…

After much and careful consideration (i.e.: adding a number to each of the stories and then using a random number generator to pick one of them) the decision has been made on the story I will focus on during my very first NaNoWriMo! The fates have chosen that it is going to be: the re-imagining of Inferno!

It’s one of the more recently started stories and probably the one that has been in the planning phase the most, but as it’s probably among the highest on the list of stories I feel need to tell, I’m actually quite fine with this result. As I wrote a while ago during my announcement that I was going to write it, this version of what was originally a more fantastical and adventurous tale is much more socially and politically loaded, also touching on certain heated issues that have both been playing for a long time and have come more recently come into the spotlight again.

In, very, short it will be a story of a people on a small isolated piece of land, seeking to fight an uphill battle to end their long-time oppression. Many of the original elements, including (largely) the setting and the characters, but also some of the themes, will still be there, but all will be repackaged to fit this new version of the story.

The upcoming week, next to attempting to write the usual weekly posts and fulfilling my responsibilities not (directly) related to writing, will be dedicated to fleshing out and setting up the characters, plot, setting and script in preparation for the actual writing process. I have one week to do it all, which is going to be a challenge, but I have set myself upon this path and I will continue to follow it! It won’t be easy, but, as the cliche/truth goes, nothing worth doing ever is! Wish me luck! ^_^

About

Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
