This Lent (February 10 to March 27) I will not go onto DeviantArt or Tumblr. However, I plan to continue using FanFiction.net, in order to keep my resolution to write fanfics as birthday gifts to my friends and relatives.
I finally made a breakthrough in "Finding What You Weren't Looking For
". I hadn't updated for almost a year, and I have been meaning to rewrite the early chapters even longer (partly at Kimberly T
's urging, and partly because the quality of my material from five years ago is really bad compared to the way I write now). I now feel mentally prepared and motivated to revise and reconstruct the first several chapters. To kick things off, yesterday I posted my new prologue
, which is based on part of the graphic novel Zuko's Story
. I will still update the story with new postwar chapters as well; I do not know whether my next update will be placed at the beginning or end of the narrative. I apologize in advance for any confusion this causes to my readers.
I also posted yesterday, on FictionPress.com, a poem I wrote, which is currently titled "Skewed Views
". I almost never share my work on this website anymore, because I prefer to save my poems original stories to publish in more well-known and professional media, but this is a poem I really want feedback on. The topic and concept are really important to me, but I'm not sure if the format works, or whether the message will get across to people with different ideologies and backgrounds. I don't feel confident showing it to people I know personally because I'm not sure what they will think of me, or whether they might be offended (it criticizes many causes, organizations, and individuals).
I would greatly appreciate reviews for either of these pieces. I'm not just looking for praise; I want to know whether they work now or can be improved. Thank you and God bless you!
