Kill your darlings, kill your darlings, even when it breaks your egocentric little scribbler's heart, kill your darlings.”
This quote came to my mind the other day while organising the new character pages on the website.
See more here: ARONIA.
I began to feel some regret for my characters. There are some that I wish I hadn't killed, though I know it had to be done. While working on book 3 I keep thinking, is there a way to bring any of them back? Especially since some of them are absolutely dead - no question about it. Being fantasy, I am sure there is a way. But, it is a universal truth that dead IS dead.
Organising the artwork and character pages has also given me a fresh boost of love and dedication for my work. I have my favourite characters for sure and seeing them come to life gives me a wonderful feeling. A big thank you again to Jabberwocky Face of Deviant Art for truly understanding my mind.
This past month I have been so dedicated to the redesign of both the books and the website, organising competitions, getting my books on Netgalley, and exploring marketing options and tools that I was almost shocked to find myself in June.
I am also happy to announce that this website will now feature interviews with authors, bloggers, artists, and creators. If you are interested in participating, please feel free to send me a message. Readers, you can see the new features here. Anyone wanting to participate can see the policies at the bottom of that page. I am happy to say there are some interviews lined up already with authors, bloggers, and artists, and I will send out a shout out later for you to take a look.
Please remember to check out the updates on the inspirations wall, and let me know if you want me to add anything to it.
Seoul International book fair is coming up soon, so I'll have some things to share about my experience there later.
That's it for now. Short and sweet blog today since I have been on zero adventures. My life for the past month has been me crouched over my home computer or stuck in my teacher's office helping the adults (and a couple of kids) of Korea better their English.
