The featured image entertains me. That was last night. Mila decided to sit in front of me and tell me she wasn’t tired! I didn’t know until after I clicked that the timing was perfect to closed eyes, haha. Her eyes kept drifting shut over and over again.
Here it is again in case it doesn’t show right on your screen.
And back to the story, Mila and Stefan have approached the King and Queen of the Awakened.
This is where the final series story picks up because I had to rewind the time back to when we left Mila. And as I’ve stated in previous posts, it was beneficial because the information was important to the continuation of the story. So overall it’s a win.
I had an interesting dream (when don’t I? lol) on Saturday night that led me on Sunday to piddle with a story outline. I’ve been wanting to write a story that featured a certain species. I’m not going to give too much information on that species right now, lol, but my mind got to thinking about elementals. Something even about that name gets me every time.
Coincidentally, it hits me too that it goes along with Stefan and Mila as I write this. They started out as a dream and an “idea,” too. Here is a post I wrote up about where this story idea came from. https://kimberlysueiverson.com/2016/12/20/coming-up-with-story-ideas/
That story creation blog series went poof because participation wasn’t there, and my time is served better elsewhere, so I just did the beginning of the series, then left it. That’s enough anyway for people to really get into the basics of story creation.
Anyhoo, I was trying to come up with thoughts on that story and then I was going on and on in my mind as I watched the new Star Wars –
I loved it.
Moving on. I kept thinking about that dream and this character in The Culling Cycle. Then my brain kept going on the path of wanting to explore the idea, and wanting to write a certain book (like I did with Stefan and Mila, wanting to write a book about a witch and a werewolf). I may just explore it further. I have zero idea for a story, but was considering writing the thoughts I have as I go, in these blogs.
I don’t blog or write on Sunday, so in fact, I could play with the idea then. Maybe even blog about the creation, where my thoughts are, where they are going, and stuff like that. I’m going to think about it, which will take me time. I may forget, or do it and have the post share on Sundays even though I don’t use the computer then. Not completely sure yet, but that story idea keeps tickling at me.
I usually don’t outline, but for some reason I keep wanting to, to see what comes up. I sort of outlined The Guardian of Life series. At least the beginning. And I considered how beneficial it would be to any beginners out there who come across the blogs. Why do I say this?
If you’d be interested, leave a comment below. That may make me lean toward talking about it (blogging) publicly.
Either way, I may play with the idea in my head. It’s not a serious storyline in my head (meaning I have to write it this second!) since I’m still working through the final parts of my Dark Moon Dynasty Universe world, and have plenty of other stories in my head. One may jump at me to go after before I come to writing this idea. Or not. Really it’s up in the air. But I’m going to casually play with it during the weekends. I have many that I do that with. Sometimes they get thrown in the “eventually I’ll write this,” pile, sometimes not.
