It has been too long, my fellow writers and readers and lovers of the craft. Seven whole months after the fiasco with my laptop and losing my writing. I sat back for a while and stopped writing because it hit me hard, and I guess after that I never bothered to write on here again. That is… Until now.
I began to work on Shadows of Imeria again a while ago and have been trudging through the edits slowly. Should have had all of them done already but life tends to get in the way and you lose traction.
I got myself a new job, coaching children things like basketball, soccer, cricket, AFL, and gymnastics along with something called Ninja Gym. I was forced to find a new residence and was days away from having to live on the street, when I found the house I’m currently staying in and I have some really kind roommates. I got myself a wonderful girlfriend who takes up more of my time than I’d like to admit, sorry Nikita.
All in all, the last seven months have worked out for me, but between my new job, applying for houses, spending time getting to know my new partner in crime, and straightening my life back out I haven’t had much time to write or even write a blog post on here. I haven’t even read a single book this year whereas I read over 20 last year.
So onto the end of this update, I plan to write more blog posts, possibly tell you about my writing and my plans for the future, maybe I will give you all some more insight into my writing process and even throw in some things to help budding writers like some of you may be. I can touch the basics when it comes to creating characters, building worlds, some finer points of storytelling, and maybe throw a couple of random things to surprise you all.
Until next time (which will probably be very soon),
Your friendly writer friend, Jhaydun Dinan
