Book of Circus

July 8, 2014 at 18:05 (Uncategorized)

I love the circus. But not clowns.

Yesterday I saw a preview for Book of Circus – it sounded like the most awesome thing in the world. But it turns out it’s part of something else. I tried to read Kuroshitsuji a while ago and really couldn’t get into it but when I saw this preview I wondered if I needed to know anything about Kuroshitsuji in order to understand Book of Circus. And then I began to wonder if the first chapters of Kuroshitsuji weren’t really a promise of what was to come and maybe I should give it another go.

But I haven’t decided yet.

Chop and change

July 6, 2014 at 20:21 (Uncategorized)

Sometimes, not often, I start a piece of fiction with a solid idea of what I want. I write it out, tweak it and just as I’m finishing it I realise I’m going to change it. Not because I’m unhappy with it, but because my new idea is better. And completely different.

The Fight for Spira started out as a cross over between X, VIII and VII. I wrote a lot of it before I cut out all the scenes with Cloud and Squall and changed the direction of the tale. The only thing that really stayed the same was the idea that someone was trying to take control of Spira.

I also find myself wanting to experiment with different genres and sub-genres, and possibly styles. Though romance still has no appeal…

Ultimately, all this has lead to me deleting an entire day’s worth of writing. I’m keeping the opening scene though.

At least, I think I’m keeping the opening scene ๐Ÿ˜›

Pretty pleased with myself – only a couple of typos and one incorrect verb use. I’ve also started learning kanji – I can now write ็ซใ€ๆฐดใ€ๅณใ€ๅทฆ. And type them as well ๐Ÿ™‚ Typing in Japanese is a little time consuming though. I have to keep changing things for the different characters. I imagine as I get better I will get faster.
