Update #9

Current Projects

#1 The Lonely Light (working title)
Type: original fantasy novel
Progress: completely on hold at the moment
Thoughts: I know where I want part 1 of this to go; it's part 2 that's vague, and I think that's dragging me down. When I first created Phyllis, I loved her to death and couldn't wait to write more of her. I think I need to get back to her roots a bit and not worry about the "how" of her magic so much. I need to find a way to make this flow more.
Likes: Right now? Nothing, unfortunately.
Dislikes: I have no passion for this story right now.

#2 "Aftermath" (working title; sequel to "Colors of Grief")
Type: Harry Potter fanfiction, AU after the final battle with Voldemort
Progress: chapter 1 posted, chapter 2 just started
Thoughts: Chapter 2 is going to be a bit more difficult than chapter 1, as it looks like it's going to consist mostly of Harry and Aidan talking, and I have no concrete idea of what they're going to talk about.
Likes: Kingsley's pantless state, Moody, the way the story has been flowing so far
Dislikes: Aidan is more on edge than I would normally intend him to be. I think I can brush that off as stress from all that's going on around him.
