So, I haven't been around for a month. If it weren't for the March Break and the fact that it snowed so badly that I can't leave my driveway (Where, oh where is the snow plough when you need it?) my update might have taken longer, ahaha...
So, as a fair warning, the first chapter for Crossroads is coming down. Why? Because in my new semester, I had Writer's Craft and after a couple grueling weeks in the course, I realized that the first chapter was horrendous. I kept on describing things and never really showing through my words. It ended up sounding more like a long rant, and every time I look at it I find myself wincing. I decided that I'm going to pull the first chapter down and fix it up. Plus, I'm afraid my plans for the seven years in Hogwarts isn't quite organized, in light of new spontaneous characters appearing out of nowhere (Yeah, Susie just kind of appeared and now I'm thinking of integrating her more into the plot, and this huge cast started forming when I waded deeper into the story...) so when I have at least the layout for first year planned, I'll post two chapters or more at once. Sometime in April, on my honour, etc.
Just to be clear, Crossroads is still WIP. It's just really rough around the edges and needs fine tuning.
And I may change the title, 'cause I'm not too happy with it and I don't feel it embodies the gist of the story very well.
In the meantime, I'll still be posting reviews 'cause I've been reading/watching books/movies/tv shows like a woman dying of thirst crawling through the desert and spotted and godsent well brimful of water, and I like ranting about things I like in general. XD
And, erm, I may be eating my words after this, but I'm working on original work as well... Um, juggling between two novel concepts and writing them both at once to see which one pans out the nicest. No, I won't be posting them, but that may slow down my fanfic-age. And (oh god, I'm gonna regret saying this, I just know it.) due to arguments in support of the use of comic books (NOT superhero stories. More like, graphic novels, but I hate that term, and only use it 'cause I have yet to think of a better substitution for it.) I erm, am slowly drawing out a comic like thing... It may not work, and will collapse around my ears, but I am fired by my passion in support of the comic book format and feel the need to promote it further than just mere positive revies for the various comics of many genres/countries I love. (This, if I ever go through with it all the way, WILL be posted online, so... Yeah.) Expect an essay *coughRant* about the greatness of Manga/Comics/Graphic Novels sometime in the future. XD
That's all... Oh! And Review of some sorts will be up sometime today. XD
