Ok, I’ve said this many times before, but now that I am less busy/depressed I can update a lot more often! In fact, ever since I’ve begun listening to The Mortal Instruments series, by Cassandra Clare, my perpetual writer’s block has lifted. It takes about 40 minutes to get to and from my new full-time job. I choose that time to listen to the books. I’m finished City of Bones and City of Ashes, and now I am onto City of Glass.
Spark Has Ignited
Since this series is a fantasy book, I believe that is why I am able to write again. With school, I was only able to do so much. I was overwhelmed. Now, I’m back at it with writing. Just reading the series has made me realize that trying to write outside of the main series is what is holding me back.
I need to write within the scope of my pride and joy, The Inolla Chronicles. I’ve realized that going the traditional route is extremely stressful and if I am trying to have a backup career it will easily over whelm me. I decided that I will be self publishing the entire series. Novelettes, novellas, short stories, refference books for certain things and such will all be self published now.
Children of Gods and War
I decided that I will begin the series of stories with my own version of Greek and Roman Mythology. In a way. It is more so explaining how I feel about the various religions of the past and present. This will explain the origin of one of the main characters that will play a vital role in the main series. It will be a series of three novelettes, and then a three-part book. The first will be called The Wife of Ares, the second Child of Ares, and the third Child of Minerva.
