Another Journey has Begun (A fast update on my writing)

One Book Aside

As I've mentioned before, I've finished the first draft of Shadow Wings. 
It's on the wait shelf until sometime in November (when I hopefully have time to look over it again). 
When I do my read through on it, I'll also be looking for ideas for the sequel, Shadow Sky, that I might possibly be able to use. 
Otherwise I'm just looking for things that I pretty much already know (which includes a plot twist that I've finally decided to use, even though I've been letting it stew in the back of my mind since I began working on the sequel). 
That isn't all. 

Another One Found

I've begun working on another story idea, completely leaving the fascinating realm of Science Fiction and entering instead the mysterious realm of Fantasy. 
Enter the story idea The Gypsy Gift (Title liable to change). 
Based off of the idea that the use of magic slowly killing you, and visible in your hair (weird, I know. Until I saw some pictures on Pinterest that made me think 'Oh, that works.' Love Pinterest). 
My so far cliche Main Character is the Princess Darina, with the Anti-Hero being the Highway Man Jedrek. 
The two villains are siblings Casimir and Nika. 
The world is based off of Roman-or-older Era Europe, mainly Germany and France regions. 
I hope to be able to have the time later to post pictures, a longer explanation of the story plot, world, and all of that. 
The Gypsy Gift - I didn't know. I didn't know what Dad had done. I didn't know that the little trinket from the Gypsy's Box would weigh so much on my countries future. I didn't know.

One (still) in the Works

My so far favorite world, is still in the works. 
I haven't been purposefully working on it (college. . . Homework. . . You get the picture) but I have a tendency to read something and play with it in my head. 
Well, here's an example; A fire elf is immune to fire to a point, hence burning one is next to impossible. But what about hot water? Would that still effect them? 
Do you see my point? 
My mind drives me crazy with the questions and ideas it comes up with. 
I guess it's a blessing from God, but I find it to be a distraction at times (which is logical as I am a fallen being, hence even the good can become bad). 
Fire elf?

One Hundred Words a Day

That will not work out until probably sometime next year (New Year's Resolution?). 
I long so much to work on my writing, but until I get into good habits with my studying, I'm going to be pushing that aside. 
I'm not giving up on writing or working on stories for the rest of this year (in fact, I've already messed up some homework because I was looking for info on a story instead of my homework. . .), but it's just not being made the highest priority as it had been earlier this year. 
Besides, God gave me the blessing of having completed one novel this year (no matter how short), I now know that I can complete another given the time. 
I just don't have the time now. 

Thanks for listening to another rather long ramble!
