Well, chapter 2 has been done for a day or so. Eric and I had a very productive meeting over the chapter and what is to become of our book. We really have our differences in thoughts and ideas, we can go back and forth a million times until we do have that same singular agreement and thoughts. Once we get on the same path of agreement, we find it easier to branch out from there. We have been MIA from the blog scene for a bit so I’d thought I’d stop by and say hello.
I am sure you noticed our lack of posts. We kind of hit a bit of a writing rut and have been dealing with real life problems outside of our fantasy nerd world. Hopefully getting back on track will be easily done. We are two chapters in and excited and anxious to finish our first collaborative masterpiece. Even if just one person reads our story, it will be an amazing experience for us.
On a side note, I am a Bronze League player in League of Legends. I cannot get out of bronze no matter how hard I try, how good I am, it never fails that I am matched up with people who throw the game because “my mom hit the router” “GG they got first blood AFK in base” “OMG ::insert random laner here:: just took my kill, report them” .. I could go on about the plagued matches I have had. It really made me think that I should lay off the games until kids are back in school… Or have one of my friends carry me XD.
The most important thing I need to remember is NOT TO GIVE UP!! I told myself I will make it to silver league. I will keep trying! Just like with writing, when words will not come out – I will force them out. What comes out may be twisted, trashy, and worth nothing… but to me if I can make something come out it will jump start my creative energy again. We will finish this book because we said we would. Even if the result is garbage – the lesson we learn will carry us into our next projects.
NessP.S. Eric is camping for the weekend, he most likely will get eaten by a bear or moose while taken a bathroom break, drunk, in the wilderness of Canada. We will all say a prayer for our lost fellow Nerd. Updates when this happens.
