So as mentioned before I'm working at my former internship as a Scare Actress for the Halloween season. Two nights already in and I can definitely see myself becoming a returnee. There's something so fascinating and fun about making the general public uncomfortable and scared. For anyone who is curious I'm portraying a possessed, eyeless doll to match my short height, youthful face and my lolita-esque dress. Unfortunately it's making my art take the back seat because I'm more or less working from Thurs to Sun nights every week. We'll see regardless, since two more large abalone shells were recently purchased.
NaNoWriMo is next month and I plan on getting the ball rolling for Elderwood, or at least get the first, full draft of book one. Because of the huge collection of characters, the world-building, flow of the story, etc. I have a feeling that Elderwood itself will be separated into more than just one book for those reasons. I have had to do a lot of clean-up since the first concept of the story - nothing really got done, let alone organized to be honest. I'm hoping to finish something this time around, and thankfully it's a lot easier to do when you have someone who is actually interested in it and you want them to be a part of it.
As an FYI I will not
be posting the Elderwood drafts, and will only distribute them to a select few for editing (if they can). I already have a couple people in mind for editing. The real challenge for me will be to stick to it and not get distracted.
And that's my update for now. Still quiet, still boring and always tired.
