I’ve been debating as to what to do next after I finished writing Listening to Georgiana and ended up with my new writing project: The Blue Robin.
Even though I still have plans to continue the story of Georgiana, I wanted to mull over the next steps. Consequently taking a break from creating Lullabies for Georgiana.
I want to create the stories of my girls and deliver them to the best of my abilities. Currently, Georgiana’s story is on break. I have decided to separate myself from her for the meantime as I feel we’ve spent too much time together the past year.
And though I’ve been working on The Bird Song for the past 3 or 4 years as a result of a convoluted dream I had, Clara’s story is also at a pause.
I have so many topics I wanted to tackle with TBS that it became an overwhelming story that I couldn’t keep up with. This was something that took a life of its own without me realising it. So, to the back of the shelf, it goes for now.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Georgie. She was the side of the coin I desperately wanted to be rid of once upon a time. Now she is a piece of my heart I cherish for always.
In the future, I plan to tell the deeper story of Georgie, Eve, and Adam.
New project: The Blue Robin
The goal of the month is to finish the first draft of the first book or volume.
The Blue Robin is a larger part of a series. Sirene Series is a light novel series about magical people in a magical world dealing with magical problems, but it’s also about normal people in a normalized world dealing with normal problems. The short bit about is that it’s about a girl learning to be empathic. The story is also a bit of romance, a slice of life, and fighting off magical zombies.
It’s not my typical writing… of a mental-health-centric story like Georgie or my poetry or even like TBS which is filled with people who aren’t necessarily okay. But it’s a genre I’ve written about since I was young.
To know more, please do check out my Patron page. You don’t have to subscribe to see information about the series. Though becoming a Patron does have its perks!
I’ll be releasing drafts and character designs as well BTS stuff.
If you’re interested in the “live” word count of the first draft, I update NaNoWriMo as often as possible. As of the time I am writing this post, I am already around 30K words which is more than half the goal of 50K. 👌
There’s nothing more satisfying than writing a story that’s writing itself.
I mean, there probably is, but The Blue Robin; New World has been very satisfying so far. It could be because I’ve thought of this story since 2012 thanks to a friend who helped create the basis of the idea.
