2019 Resolutions

It’s a start of new year and for some (or most) it’s a clean slate. As for me and the plans I have, that hasn’t changed. If anything, they’ve been slightly altered.

A new change that I have to focus on is getting my teacher certification and all the steps that must come first to get there. I’m excited and nervous at the same time. It’s something new and mysterious but I think I’m ready for it. I don’t know what the future will bring, hopefully, it’s good stuff, and luckily, I am support by a lot of people that care about me.

Second, I have to plan a wedding. -.- It just so happens to be mine (yaye). That, in its own, speaks for itself. Don’t really have a date yet since the venue kind if dictates that. Got most of the guest list and I’ve been looking at venues and found a few. To be frank, there doesn’t seem to be enough time for everything but I’ll make it work, somehow.

The goals for my writing will remain the same. At the end of the year, it took the back burner but I did accomplish one goal and that was to finish writing the story I don’t like (the Vampire Prince goes to High School) on wattpad. I’m very proud of that mostly because my fans helped me get through it.

There are other novels I need to work on and I’ve revisited a few older ones. Have you ever felt like it wasn’t time for that story to get written? Or mayne your skills and execution of such story wasn’t there? I believe that’s what happened to me and now, I think I’m ready.

I’m eager to start the new year. Hears hoping is better than last.

Writing Sample – Jewel Knights

Instead of a writing prompt, today I want to share something that I wrote. It’s a story that I created a long time ago but it has only recently made any progress. Somewhere online, that I don’t remember now, I read that oneself isn’t a bad writer. It just so happens that your current skills aren’t enough to realize the image/ ideas that you have in your head. This resonated a lot with me. That’s why, I’m proud to share what I have written.

A light rainy mist began to fall against the stained-glass window as Lydia stood motionless in the headmistress’s office. The soft rain kissed the window portraying the first wave of the heaven stars falling from the sky. Lydia could feel the warmth from the fire burning in the hearth to her right against her body. The warmth had seeped into her clothes, relaxing her muscles and spreading a small drowsy spell upon the trainee. But despite the warmth and the laziness of the day, Lydia remained in her posture; hands straight down her sides, back straight and eyes looking forward.

               The headmistress shuffled around a few parchment sheets upon her large oak desk. Her head dress was titled slightly back exposing white blonde hair. Upon entering the room half an hour ago, Lydia had noticed the dark circles underneath the usually cheerful brown eyes. On further inspection, Lydia could faintly see all the flaws in the headmistress’ attire; the wrinkles and the once beautiful shade of beige had turned into a light yellow.

               “You graduate in six months.”

               “Yes ma’am,” Lydia answered, tightening her stance.

               She waited for a few minutes hoping the headmistress would keep talking. However, the silence continued.

               “If I may,” Lydia began. “Why exactly have you summoned me?”

               “Do know about the town of Loukussa?”

               “It’s a mining town,” Lydia supplied. “They located near the Artican Mountains. It’s not very prosperous at the moment because of the lack of use for Kravite.”

               “A heaven star fell near Loukussa a few moons ago,” the headmistress explained. “The Northern Order sent in their warriors and they were successful.”

               Lydia frowned but kept her silence.

               “However, activity has been reported near that area and Gylaw fears his followers are starting to think of him as incompetent. Due to this, Gylaw has called in a favor.” The Headmistress placed the parchment sheets on her desk. “The Northern warriors’ faces are known, and we want to keep this a discreet as possible. If you return from your mission successfully then consider yourself a Jeweled Knight.”

               “Thank you for the opportunity, ma’am,” Lydia said. “I won’t fail.”

               “You are to report tomorrow at the east gate. Further instructions about your mission will be provided then.”

               “I understand.”
