Waggish Writer Week 9 Updates, Bloopers, and Schemes
Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit Waggish Writer.
The following below are my updates, bloopers, and schemes for the website's future.
Starting this week, I will not be afraid to admit to not working on projects. Life happens. Creativity ebbs and flows. I will promise to be honest and take time to reflect on those projects to help rekindle the spark that inspired me to put those pages down.
I have started work on creating a scrapbook of my work for the Washtenaw Voice, which I am including citation and links to the original location to be mindful of their ownership of the content I created for them. Pages of the scrapbook will be part of my Jouranlist persona highlights on Facebook.
In a few of my posts, I have noticed some spelling errors. I am correcting them as I go.
Something that my boyfriend, Mark, has brought up is that I use "partner" instead of using boyfriend when I chat about him in my writing. I am planning to go back and do edits because I love him and want him to be part of my writer's journey as he is one of my biggest supporters.
Writers are the greatest schemers, plotting the course of their adventures to guide their characters and readers, whether they realize the writer's guiding hand or not. I am sharing some of my schemes to give you content to look forward to in the upcoming days/weeks/months/years.
Schemes for Author:
I have been inspired to continue down the rabbit hole of "Misventures." My protagonist is fairly well fleshed out: Belle, a mute warlock sent by her patron to relight the Faith Fire in 100 shrines scattered throughout the world. The next character to be fleshed out is Brox, a half orc barbarian. I'll share more details on him next week after I rub some sandpaper over his description and backstory.
Schemes for Poet:
This week, inspiration for poetry writing has been nudging at me. I toyed with the idea of writing about why I write, but I did not get further than the title "Why I Write." Oh well, maybe this upcoming week will be different.
Schemes for Screenwriter:
Currently, I have two drafts of scripts meant for the screen: "Fire Soul," a sci-fi based movie inspired by "Full-Metal Alchemist" and "Real Steel" and "Hellnest Manor," the first episode script for an anime series inspired by "Black Butler" with my fascination with Japan.
Schemes for Journalist:
The posts I share for my Journalist persona will appear in different variations:
"Waggish Writer Geeks Out" - my space to geek out about things I really enjoy.
"A Matter of Mantra" - my space to share affirmations I am welcoming into my life to become a better version of me
"Waggish Writer Writes" - my space where I lean more to the reporter side of my persona.
Stay tune to see what mischief I am up to each week.
For this week, my creativity did not feel ready to work on any of my FanFiction. I will take this week to recollect my thoughts on the FanFiction with hopes to post next week.
With the release of three FanFiction series at different stages, I will be trading on and off of which chapters to publish. At least once a week, I will update one story with one chapter.
You can affect the stories' progress by commenting in the comments which one you would like to see next. Otherwise, the stories will flow naturally.
Thank you for taking time to visit Waggish Writer. If you wish to show your appreciation, you are welcome to...
This is Waggish Writer signing off of this post. Stay tune for more updates, bloopers, and schemes next week!
