All right, guys! I started on a Halloween story a few days ago and got some decent progress on that. Now the only obstacle is making sure it's completed before Halloween, which will be close. I'm in a race against time again :p

Anyways, although I'm still in the early stages of writing it, I'm planning on having it build off from another story of mine in the past. So, in a way, it is sort of like a sequel....kinda. I'm going to write a little more after I post this journal but in a few more days I should know where the story stands in terms of how much longer I need and such. At worst, Halloween will just be a few days longer this year! ;p

Since Halloween is right around the corner, I thought about writing a Halloween story. Of course, this would mean that I'd have to wait before I could finish part two to the series. I suppose there's a few options I could go with, so I'll have to think about that a little more.

As far as part two I'm working on, I've gotten a pretty good start on it. I don't remember the actual size of the file, but I may have written about a third of what part one was. So that's nearing completion. And I may have mentioned a couple of journals ago about waiting until part two was completed before taking a little break to write up a random story. I may just write the Halloween story instead, but I'm not sure if I'd have the time to write it before Halloween. We'll see.

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend :)
In between writing parts to stories, I like to write mini stories. They're usually quick to write, and very fun to read. I've already started on part two to Kingdom Of Salador, so I'll probably finish that up as soon as I can and then write up a mini story following that in between part two and three. It's just an idea to consider.

Guess what? Did you guys know Weezer is back? They released a new album a few days ago. It's called Everything Will Be Alright In The End.

"Back To The Shack"   - catchy with a cool music vid!
It's been a few days since part one of Kingdom Of Salador was posted and I've gotten what I expected from it. I believe it's pretty much straight forward but I just wanted to clarify a couple of things moving forward.

If you've read part one you can tell that it takes a LONG time ago. I want to say "medieval-ish" for the time period. Since I wasn't around back then, I'm trying to keep it simple and stay within the means (like there obviously weren't cell phones back then like there is today). So that's one example.

If you know who my OC's are then I believe it'd make this little series even better to read, just because you'd know how they act and know a bit about them. You don't really have to know them, but I've already made a bunch of comments in the story about how we all know each other and such. Basically speaking, it's just different, and if you knew my OC's and how they act it'd add another aspect to the story which I am aiming for.

I know part one didn't have as much expansion as you guys are probably used to. For part one I was more focused on introducing the story and characters that would set up the story. But there will be more expansion I can assure you of that. So not to worry! :D

Lastly, I just wanted to say that this series will just be "different" than what you'd probably expect. Usually it's someone does something, then they expand in some way. This series will have much more of a storyline to follow along with the expansions, and since it's also in a completely different time period, it just adds a whole new dynamic.

I'll begin writing part two within a few days so hopefully I can finish that as soon as I can and get that posted. As I've mentioned before, I'm very confident that it'll go to three parts.
You may have noticed by now, but part one has officially been posted! As I mentioned in the artist comments, the idea came in a dream after watching "Back To The Future". I thought it was very amusing and although I didn't want to get into another series, I couldn't resist. Thinking about it now, I believe this will go to three parts. Actually, it will. I can't jumble everything up in only one more part. So three it is.

I'll let you guys read it without giving away any spoilers, but I'm really excited for this story. I love the interaction with my OC's so far and the whole concept of being somewhere "new" is very interesting. Plus, I have to find a way to get out. The time travel/dimension travel idea sounded cool, so I went with it. Not everything may add up to the time frame it takes place in, but I'm doing my best to be as close as I can with that. I thought about making the speech the same as it was back then, but I'm not very familiar with it and I thought it'd be confusing to write/read with that different vocabulary. So to keep it easy on everyone (me included) it's in modern English (not the band reference, haha). There will also be more expansion (obviously). Part one was more of an introduction to what you should expect to see, but I'll get to that later.

I mentioned this also, but for those that have been watchers of mine for years, you may remember the name "Salador" from an older series of mine (I deleted it a while ago, though). The town that took place in was called Salador, so I used that name again because I like the sound of it and it's like a little tribute to it. And yes, if I remember, I came up with the name while eating salad. Yes. Salad+or = Salador :lol:

I like the idea of a character not being in control of what's around them. So for me in the story, I have to live in this strange world and do whatever I can to get back home, or should I say....get "back to the future"? ;p

My name is Janelle, and I am one of the few females that are into expansion. I've written tons of stories ranging from a wide variety of expansions. I'm always thinking up new ideas, and most of my ideas come randomly to me :p But any idea I get I try making into a story; some are better than others. Writing relaxes me and I really enjoy writing about my OC's and I getting into rather "interesting" situations ;p

Aside from that, I am British and for those curious, I DO have the accent ;p I love to stay active whether it's going for afternoon jogs, or just playing sports with friends. I can be competitive but won't be upset if thing's don't go my way. I am very friendly, and I love to help people whenever I can. I'm a very caring person and enjoy cheering people up :huggle:
