Hey guys!

I did a thing.

It of course is not going to detract from my main course of writing but for those of you who like reading translations, I have spent the last couple of years training to become a translator. I'm still in training only now it's self training and I thought, why not hone my translation on hyphens. (Yes, this means I'm basically honing my shitty Japanese on you poor people)
So! Feel free to come along and read if you're interested. I've only translated two articles so far but I hope to add more. Comments, emojis and suggestions are totally welcome and I hope it helps the fans who can't read Japanese to read a little more of the articles that probably don't get translated. I will endeavour to translate as much as I can :)

Heya guys, Zara here

So as you may have guessed from the lack of posting stories and such (well, a lot less than my norm) school has indeed taken it's toll on me and as such, demands 110% of my time now.
It makes sense, it's the final year of my degree.There's presentations, internships, humungous reports, ethics committees, research projects and that's not even part of my final exams! There's still classes, exams, kanji, grammar, all that lovely stuff and  to add the cherry on  top, JLPT (this year is L2)

So in light of all that, as you guys may have already accurately guessed, my head for writing, especially my own stories  has dwindled down to nearly non-existant.
Don't get me wrong. This does not mean I don't want to write. It's actually much  easier to write  with Rika and Jennie, that's  why I'm still doing it. But writing by myself has always been a little more challenging and with everything that's going on at the moment, I find myself with less and less time  and headspace to be able to do it.

I'm looking over my current running stories and trying to figure out which ones I need to prioritise, which ones I should carry on with and which ones I can't carry on with, even if I have the time.
So here's what I'm thinking.

Chances are, when all of this is over and I'm FINALLY on break in December, chances are I'm going to want to write again. I know my head, it's just what happens. When I don't have school, I want to write. It's just naturally in my nature to want to write stories. Which means that in December, when  everything is done and I can finally breathe,  I will be back with my stories and I will be back with a vengeance. (vengance? how does one spell that word??? *too lazy to google it*)
Until then, I need you guys to wait. I promise this, I don't start stories with no intention to finish it. Every single multichapter that is on this livejournal,  I fully intend on finishing. I will not leave them unfinished, but I need the time to finish  this damned degree  and then come back to write. I am a reader, I know how annoying it is to have a story that doesn't get finished and as busy as I can get, I don't intend on doing the same thing.

So hyphens, as scattered as  we are with our boys on the recharge, if there is anyone out there still reading my stuff or waiting for me, I promise you I will be back. Unlike KAT-TUN, my recharge period has an end-date and that is December.
Come December, I will be back and that is where you guys come in.

I know I've asked this before but as this may very well be the last time I post up another chapter until December, let me know where you want me to start.

My current running multichapters are:

  • The Lost Weeks (Judgement Call 4)

  • Trial Zero (Whitecap Widow  2)

  • Son of the Signs

  • Nightfall

  • Ashtray Heart

  • Wastelands

  • Elemental Series

So yes, let me  know what you want, what you think of the current running stories. I know it has been awhile since I've written but even if by now I'm only writing to one person, that'll be enough for me. Readers are lovely, they really are. To know words can move someone else (or make this recharge period a little better) is great but if I'm being  totally honest, I've always written because I want to write and even if I had no  readers, I'd probably  keep writing.

Until then, I need to let my Japanese degree beat the shit out of me before I dare try doing anything else.

This is not a total recharge period. I'm still able to write with Rika and Jen as it is much easier to have another brain to bounce off but with my own stories, December will have to be the time when I come back.

So this time, love and comments are welcome! Let me know you're out there, let me know you're reading, let me know you still want to read  :)
And I will see you again when I come back.

Hello again world.

Well, my studies have started up again and they've started with a bang...almost literally. My favourite teacher is going back to Japan, I'm getting new teachers (which is a little worrying considering I'm right in the middle of my degree) and things are messy. But in the midst of this, a thought came to me the other night and I couldn't shake it off.
I'm going to launch a new project and for this, I'm going to need your help :)

Are you the creative type? Or do you have a lot of thoughts all the time?
I'd love to hear them.I need your help... )
