Not a story post.

More of a “Hi, how are you!?” Post.

My name is AmberJade, as I explained elsewhere and I’m writing a book. The name of my book is currently “Essentials” though that could change. I’ve probably got 3-4 chapters/20k or so words left before I finish it. (Chapter estimates based on outlined scenes, word estimate based on previous chapters.)

Here is a little bit about it. I started it in November for, you guessed it, NaNoWriMo. It started out as a book surrounding a girl named Alex. She was someone who was of a serving race. They had no power, they had no abilities. They weren’t treated poorly by any means, they were just completely unimportant. Her cleaning up after the Essentials was  the first words that I put to paper (so to speak.)  “Alex picked across the battlefield.” Ran through my head over and over again when I was out for a walk that day, and I pictured her and what she was doing.

They, the Essentials who are the ruling and superior race, (non-Essentials being the secondary race. Referred to as Nonnies (sing. Nonny.)  are fighting a race of creatures that are human-like however are far from it.   They are a soulless, cannibalistic race of people that, while not smart, are clever in an animalistic sort of way. And are very, very vicious. They live to eat and breed. If one is caught off guard by a group of them, or even a particularly quick couple they are either breeding stock or that night’s dinner.

It’s evolved a bit since then. It now has a creation myth and goddesses that are fighting a very long war. Alex has evolved into a murderess and a… well, spoilers *insert Riversong .gif*

 

Anyway, I hope you’ve enjoyed this bit of a summary. I’m going to go back to writing the actual story instead of using up my words here.

 

PS: If this made you want to read any of this, pop over and start at the post titled “In the Beginning.”

Two Pictures

Hi there, not a story post, but there probably will be one in a few days. Just sharing the two pictures of Cyrene and Mischa. (Name changes incoming soon.) These are from a coloring book I bought, I didn’t draw them. It helped me with the descriptions of them, and so I’m sharing them.  Mischa’s name will probably be changed to Lilith at some point. I’m having a really, really tough time on Cyrene’s name.  If you have any suggestions drop me a comment!  (Note: none of them have wings, that’s just part of the picture.)

In The Beginning

Please see explanation post. 

In the beginning, there was the Void. From that Void came the Sisters. The Sisters floated in the empty and shapeless Void and became bored. This made them sad, and they were not pleased with this feeling. “What shall we do, dear sister?” The eldest Sister, Cyrene, asked.

Explanation Post

Hello. This is an explanation post. If you’re here from mturkcrowd cause you clicked my signature: Hi, I ❤ you.

This is where I’m going to stick a few chapters of my book. Along with various other things that are related to it.  Since I have a gofundme link that asks for money, I feel like I should probably give a sample of what I’m asking people to donate for. I also didn’t want anyone to have to sift through a bunch of regular blog nonsense in order to find a chapter  There shouldn’t be too much nonsense here. Occasional updates and chapter postings. If I make or find something interesting that goes with the book I may post that as well. (Such as the pictures I colored of characters.) If something gets edited enough that it changes the chapter I’ll repost it with something like [In the Beginning V2] or similar. I do want to also note that some of these things may be switched around by the time it’s deemed finished. Some chapters may happen earlier or later than how they are originally posted.

If you’re reading my stuff, I do ask for comments. Even if you hated it, it’s okay to tell me. (But try and be constructive, I can’t fix the character you hate if I don’t know why you hate him or her.) Most of these chapters have been through Grammarly, and edited a few times but they are by no means done. There will be errors, and probably inconsistencies. Point these out to me!! I may not notice because I know what’s happened in the world, I made it. But I may have forgotten to explain it!

I ran out of things to write in this post. Hopefully, I covered everything.  Next post will be ‘In the Beginning’
