Sunday Background and World Building 1/31/10

So this Sunday’s World Building and Background is going to be just a generic introduction into my world.

The world that my stories revolve around is called Torrest Reyenne. It was created by some very bored gods who were bugging their parents. Mommy and Daddy dearest (more about these two on a later date) decided to make a contest for their children. They would join together and create a world. They would then have to populate the world with their children. Basically what the contest does is get the whiny bored gods out of Mommy and Daddy’s hair.

Torrest Reyenne is a world of magic, there are magical powers, the ability to switch shapes.

Its a world very similar to our own.  Their technology is as advanced as our as well as in some places being slightly more advanced (working on the specifics of that)

There is a lot that I am trying to work out right now, but that is the gist of it for now.

Saturday Plans, Rants and Reflections 1/30/10

Plans

So this week my plans are relatively simply. This week I want to really push at actually writing and not just planning on the writing. I’ve been distracting myself a lot with the outlining and background building lately and not actually getting any where on any on my stories. So, here is my goal: I want to try and get 100 words a day on each of the three main stories. This is relatively simple way to start, because I can’t guarantee when and how much I get to write a day, so I figure 100 X 3 = 300 words a day. Not hard at all.

I also want to finish a few of the planning items that I have been working on for awhile to get nailed down and finished up. Mostly the outlines right now. I have them pretty much done for now besides Aislynn’s. Then I want to move on to the generic outlines for the three shorter stories.

Rants

This weeks rant is brought to you by the Rocky Mountain Bridal Show. I went to one today, and I need to stop going to them. I have pretty much everything I need nailed down besides a baker. But finding a baker is becoming increasingly difficult because we don’t want a traditional cake because neither the groom to be or myself really like cake. I really like the idea of doing a desert bar type situation with a collection of deserts, but we’ll have to see how that goes. My mom really wants us to do the “cutting the cake” situation so we’ll have to see what we can do with that. Maybe we’ll do a “cutting the cheesecake”.

Along the same lines, since I decided to go to one that was quite a bit of ways out from where I actually live, I decided to stay for the majority of the show. Including the fashion show at the end. I usually don’t like to stay for those because I’ve already got my dress and the dresses for a majority of the party, but I wanted to see what kind of things have come into popularity (not that I go by popular standards) since the last time I checked. So I go into the conference room where they were holding the fashion show and sat next to a mother and her daughter. We waited until the lame music started, then we heard a sad story about a woman who won this competition to plan and have a wedding in one week  — it was sad because apparently this woman met the man of her dreams a few weeks after her daughter died, dude, I wanted to cry — then they started filing out. First off, I’ve seen better fashion shows put on by middle school children who have never see a fashion magazine in their life. The models they got had obviously never done a show before (which would have been fine) and had no emotions or expressions in the show  (which was lame beyond belief).

God, it was nearly unbearable. Not to mention the outfits sucked major cookies. And then choked on them. Then tried to eat them again.

Reflections

I don’t really have any major reflections besides to say that I love that my lovely fiance is bearing with me through all of the craziness of this wedding planning and would stick beside me through anything. I love him completely.

So, I’ve already been slacking…

So I just wanted to come here and get this updated. I am going to start up a post schedule for different things I plan to do on each day of the week. This way I’m hoping if I get something scheduled then I’ll be able to push myself to writing daily on the topic of that given day. I’m going to do the schedule as a backbone to random-every day postings as well. Oh, and since I am trying to focus this blog on my writing, a lot of the daily themes are going to be focused around my writing and trying to make it better. Here is rough draft number one for the weekly schedule:

  • Sundays: Background and world building.
  • Mondays: Character development.
  • Tuesdays: Random.
  • Wednesdays: Review days.
  • Thursdays: Free writing
  • Fridays: Random.
  • Saturdays: Weekly rant, next weeks goals, reflections.

So that’s where I’m at now. I’ll try and get this schedule going as soon as I can.

A brand new home

So, my lovely world press world, I have come to join your numbers. I have come to enjoy this world. I have a blogger blog out there that I use as well, and depending on which one of these sites I like more will decide how I was to proceed and who I will continue to post to. For now, this is me saying welcome. Expect an actual post before too long.
