Lately, I have been studying for two different tests, while studying Japanese and working on my novel, Sin. My mind has turned into a pile of mush from all the studying.
Studying has never been my forte. I suppose it is difficult for me to concentrate on studying something for a long period (hours). On Monday, I did manage to study Japanese for almost five hours! It really surprised me that I studied that long. My otouto (younger brother) from Japan studies for ten hours straight! I was amazed he could hold his concentration for that long without taking breaks (barely). It somewhat inspired me to attempt to study seriously, which explains why I studied Japanese that long.
Today, I’m planning on studying Japanese. I really want to improve my speaking skills the most! I have managed to make many friends in Japan that offered language exchange. The only thing is…I am mildly shy and some friends prefer to video skype. If I had more privacy at home, I would be more inclined to video chat with my friends, but unfortunately, I do not. T_T
Anyways, besides that, I currently am working on my concept for my novel.
|Kyo watching me work on my novel. :P|
Most likely, I would began working on the chapters sometime next month…maybe (hopefully) earlier, depending on how long it takes me to work on the background history of the characters, world building and so on.
Originally, my character’s main protagonist was going to be a male, but I have decided to make it a female. If you remember my previous Bandit story, the main antagonist (Sebastian), I removed him from that story and placed him into this new story. I believe that he fits better in Sin (the new title of my story.)
I am very hesitant to release information about Sin, but I know ideas are one in a million. My paranoia stops me from discussing it. If you are a writer, have you ever felt doubts about releasing information online about your story, in fear that someone would steal your idea?
