My Resolutions Day 353

Wednesday 10 January 2018

I woke at 14:00 today.

I’ve been writing all day, trying to figure out how to make things work with the short chapter story. I’m at a point where each time I think I’ve come up with a solution I think can work, I think about it a little and find that something about it would force a change in the story or how magic would work by thinking something like “Wouldn’t everyone have the spell/magic?”, “Why wouldn’t someone just do this and what would stop them if they could?”, etc.

At the moment it’s driving me nuts, to the point where I think I might have to give up it and start with a new story; maybe I might be able to split the current story I have in two since I think a few things might be able to come of them.

I’m going to try and work on a new story, something which I don’t need to plan the story with so much and is flexible.

I’ve been thinking about this site and I might not upload to it every day anymore, I will explain myself later on if anyone wants to know. I’m still going to be doing my exercises, try to get better, try to read, etc. For now, I might not post for the rest of the week, maybe I’ll post when I want to explain my decision.

My Resolutions Day 352

Tuesday 09 January 2018

I woke at 14:00 today.

I’m going to try and sleep earlier tonight so I can at least get up early tomorrow morning.

I’ve been writing for most of the day and I’ve had a headache, so now that I only have this left to write for today I won’t be reading tonight. If my head is feeling better tomorrow I’ll read for around two hours to make up for missing today.

I’m almost finished with the rules of my short chapter story. I’ve got so many ways in which it can go and now I am seeing which ways would suit the story best.

I went on Sly Cooper 2, I’m on the 6th episode and have gotten 62% of the way through.

My Resolutions Day 351

Monday 08 January 2018

I woke at 14:00 today.

My friend woke me up when he sent me a message saying he was outside my door. I didn’t get to sleep early last night, my back was causing me some pain.

My friend and I talked for a lot of the time he was down here, I was on my laptop while he was on his Switch. I didn’t have any games we could play together so we just did our own thing while talking.

I wrote last night and I have almost finished the magical rules of my short chapter story. I’m going to try and finish and polish them and when I’m happy with them I’ll start writing chapters.

I might go on Sly Cooper 2 tonight after I’ve finished writing since I want to complete that game but was playing other games, I’ll finish Sly Cooper 2 and 3 and then trade in the game.

Tristran has made it back to Wall but the guards are refusing him entry. A good thing too since Yvaine will turn to dust if she goes through the gap in the wall. Also, Tristran should know by now to word things very carefully; he did so very well when he amended his deal with Madame Semele but he could have worded it better so he wouldn’t be turned into a dormouse.

My Resolutions Day 350

Sunday 07 January 2018

I woke at 12:00 today.

I’ve managed to get a bit further in Assassin’s Creed Origins but I didn’t go on it for long. I saw my brother later and saw he had a unicorn which leaves behind rainbow coloured trails. I know Assassin’s Creed mixes fiction with historical events and people, however, I’m pretty sure it never delved into the mystic.

I spent the afternoon with a friend and we caught up with each other. Not much else happened today.

I haven’t managed to write anything today but I’ll try to finish what I need to tomorrow.

I’m surprised that Captain Shakespeare doesn’t even get named in the book. I only know what his name is because of the movie. He played a big role in the film too, it was because of him that Tristran learns swordsmanship and becomes more confident. Well, looks like now the book is far too different from the movie. I don’t mind that it’s different, it plays out as almost two different stories, I’m still enjoying the book.

My Resolutions Day 349

Saturday 06 January 2018

I woke at 12:00 today.

I didn’t go on a game last night and I’ve not been on one yet today, I might go on Assassin’s Creed Origins after I post this. I’ll be trying to read a little extra of Stardust tonight so I can try and finish it tomorrow.

I should be able to finish writing the rules of my short chapter story tomorrow. I have a friend coming over so I might not get everything down then, but I hope to.

I’ve been feeling pain in my back today for some reason and so haven’t done much today aside from reading and write a little.

Tristran has found the star again and I’m seeing the plot play out similar to the movie in its main areas such as who dies and the places they visit, but it plays out differently. I only have 53 pages to go so I’m wondering how fast things will wrap up. Where they are now is about an hour into a movie which is about two hours long, so I’m wondering how much of the movie wasn’t in the book and now how the book will play out.

My Resolutions Day 348

Friday 05 January 2018

I didn’t sleep last night, so I spent the night playing Assassin’s Creed Origins. It’s a big game if you want to do the side quests and collectibles. I’ve reached level 27 and the next main quest has a recommended level of 12. I like to do side quests and read the extra information games give you.

I did manage to sleep for a few hours around 12:00. I hope I can sleep around 01:00 or 02:00 tonight. I don’t know if I will, if I can’t I’ll probably go on a game or read.

I’ve not written much today.

I helped out my brother with a new camera he bought. After about 30 minutes and a trip to a store to buy a memory card, we figured out how to use the features he wanted.

Tristran has lost the star. I don’t know why he didn’t tie the star to a tree or something since he loosened the chain and he even wonders why he didn’t do something like that. It’s obvious she’d run away.

My Resolutions Day 347

Thursday 04 January 2018

I woke up around 14:00.

I couldn’t sleep last night, so I spent a few hours on Assassin’s Creed Origins, I went around collecting treasures and other collectibles and finished some side quests. I’m going to go on it again after I post this and try and complete a few main missions and try to level up.

I managed to sleep around 07:00 and woke up at 14:00, which is later than I would have wanted. I have been feeling sick today, so I mainly laid around. I managed to read, even if only 14 pages.

I plan to try to sleep early tonight, if I feel well enough, I’ll read before I try to sleep.

Managed to write down a couple ideas I could use in one of my stories. I’m going to aim to finish writing the rules for my short chapter story by the end of the week and start writing chapters.

Tristran has found the star and is now seeing a lion and a unicorn fight and seems to recall a similar thing happening in a nursery rhyme.

My Resolutions Day 346

Wednesday 03 January 2018

I woke up around 12:00.

I read again, so three days in a row, not much but at least a steady going. I went on Assassin’s Creed Origins again and have gotten the hidden blade, I mainly did side missions, collecting treasures and crafting. I might go on Sly Cooper 2 later.

I’m going to try and finish up writing all of the rules for the short chapter story so I can start writing it. Hopefully, I can post it soon, I’m going to try and at least write 5 or 10 chapters before I post.

I didn’t do much else today.

Tristran has now met a person who he’s now travelling with and I’m curious as to how Tristran knows where places that he’s never heard of are, it might be just some type of magic.

My Resolutions Day 345

Tuesday 02 January 2018

I woke up around 12:00.

I managed to wake up earlier today.

I managed to read again today. I didn’t go on Sly Cooper 2 last night and I went on Assassin’s Creed Origins. My brother has the game and I asked if I could go on it, I’ve heard good things about it and while I’ve only done a few missions it is fun. I’ll be going back on it after I post this.

I’ve written down a few more details for my short chapter story. I’ll be trying to write some chapters on it soon.

Tristan has now set off beyond the wall. It’s different from the movie in quite a few ways now, the main plot is still the same though and I expect it’ll end the same way, but we’ll see.

My Resolutions Day 344

Monday 01 January 2018

I woke up around 14:00.

I woke up late today, I couldn’t sleep for a while so I just watched some videos. I’ll be trying to sleep early tonight.

I didn’t write today in terms of prose, I was writing out the rules for which certain things like magic will work in the short chapter story. I want to make sure that all the rules are thought out before I start fully writing, as I am not going to think so much on the story and just write the chapters since the story has no plan.

I managed to read and I am going to go on Sly Cooper 2 after I post this.

I’ve watched the film so unless there are drastic differences, I know what is going to happen. The first chapter is a prologue about the main character’s father. I’m enjoying it.
