Working on new things

It’s been nearly a month since there’s any new content posted and I feel obligated to provide an update of sort.

I have recently got myself into a new habit of waking up at 5.15am in the morning to go for a 30 minutes run around my neighbourhood. It has been going on for the past three weeks now and there are multiple reasons. One, I promised myself that I need to be healthy and reduce my stress level. And since I do enjoy running, it’s the best kind of exercise for me. Second, my working hours, especially that of the evening, is unpredictable given my recent change to a new project. And usually by then, I will be too exhausted to exercise. So, a morning run is the best.

I have also signed up for a short Udemy course on Creative Writing and is currently undergoing the lessons.

Next, I also decided to do commercial writing. And no, no money involved just yet. What I meant is that I write for companies, using my technical skills and experience. It’s also a good place for me to start if I need to do writing as a career.

Finally, I’m still working on my novel; still trying to work out the kinks of the first chapter. And I’ll be honest. I’m having a writers block of sort because I recently find myself not feeling passionate about this particular storyline set in the Intertwined Fate universe. Initially I started the project because I felt like I need to do a slightly bigger fiction project before I go to the next level. I’ve tried writing space opera a few years ago and my skills then didn’t allow me to do a good job. That’s why I would be stupid for me to attempt it again.

The sci-fi LGBT-themed short story I wrote previously for the Intertwined Fate universe was a good starting point. You can read the first chapter here. That story was small enough and manageable for me. Furthermore, I felt the passion for it and enjoyed writing it. Now, it’s just really hard for me to find that passion back.
