HAPPY WEEKEND! It’s always weekend when we post, but this has been a good weekend. Hey, y’all! I want to quote the Brantley Gilbert song “The Weekend,” but I cannot remember a relevant line. I want to make a joke about the musical artist The Weekend now (now that ACG has brought up music), and why Snapchat is insistent on telling me he’s dating Selena Gomez!!! Buuuuut that’s not what this post is about.
Nope. It’s been a while since we talked about our stories and personal projects. Therefore, tonight we want to share what we’re working on currently. Instead of us summarizing our own projects, we thought we’d summarize each other’s with no rebuttal from that person, no chance to really explain 😉. I’m nervous about this, but let’s do it!
AJA likes to write contemporary, and she actually finishes those stories. I don’t understand, but she does. From YouTubers to photographers, she’s done multiple things. Right now, though, she’s writing about real people with serious problems. Her main characters all have mental illnesses, and they are really struggling. It isn’t like some stories that make it seem pretty or cool or fun; it is raw and painful to read at times because of how it shows the characters hurting. These girls (and guy) don’t want to be defined by what they are dealing with and each have a method to try and do that. Different ages, personalities, and interests, all of them are trying to do the best they can with the cards they’ve been dealt, and her story is about 2/3s through and showing that well. I’m so glad to be allowed to witness this sister queen’s writing (and all the other writings she’s shared in the past)!!!
How to describe ACG’s current project? Hmm… I do not recall if we have ever described it on this blog before or not. This project is the final “book” (manuscript) in a trilogy. Therefore, I’m leaving out a lot of background information. That being said… Basically a chick’s dead not-brother husband comes back to life after she’s gotten involved with a new dude and given birth to the not-brother, no-longer-dead ex-ish husband’s child. The chick is also a political figure for their “country.” It’s fantasy, so the terms that would be used don’t make sense in real life, so “country.” So was her not-brother husband…since he was kind of her brother and kind of her husband. That being said, everyone has accepted his death and moved on…sorta, so the new guy and the chick are planning to get married.Then not-brother husband comes back and derails those plans. The chick is kind of afraid of not-brother husband with good reason. He pitches a couple fits. He’s very aggressive and needs to be punched very hard. She tries hide her relationship with the new guy, and her child is very uncomfortable around his biological dad because he doesn’t know him and considers the new guy his dad. Basically the overall plot is: how do we react to dead not-brother husband’s return and get married and interact and blah blah blah. It’s all very awkward and dramatic. But really well written and I’m in love with the new guy. It’s great, and I am proud of ACG for writing this much/almost being done with three consecutive, full manuscripts.
I hope you got a sense of what we spend most of our free time doing (or pretending to do). 😉
Keep your stories on sealions and your fish on shelves!!! 🙂 ❤ 😀 😉 😛
