This is Gabriella Hunter here and most of you can call me Gabbie! I haven't been on here in a long time and that is really a shame because I've been hit with inspiration so much lately and I haven't had the time to really write or do much, other than write some notes and hope to get back to them later. I know that all of us are going through it and I'm just wanting to catch up, see how the writing thing is going for all of you. I'm honestly doing pretty good! I've been writing notes for a lot of original work and trying to remember where I left off on some of my other fan fic. I think I left all of them up on a cliff hanger and I don't know if I intended to do it on purpose or not. Haha.
The story I'm wortking the most on right now is just Transparent. It's my Dominique Weasley/Teddy Lupin...drama? Romance? Comedy--nah, it's really not that funny. Haha. I'm not really sure why I'm so attached to this story but I think it has to do with Teddy himself. I've written him as a really unlikeable character in the beignning and he's kind of still a butt later on but in my head, I can just do so much with his character and he feels real to me. I like writing characters that are neither good or bad, they're somewhere in the middle and some of them just kind of stick more than others. Teddy has a lot of issues and I do believe that I'll make a separate story with him in the future, his relationship with Dominique will kind of take a back burner, they don't really have a relationship exactly but they have a something, I guess?
I'm rambling but I really love these two and I love writing this story, so I hope that I can finish it this time around. Writing for me has always been a really healing process and I think that I've been reeling that urge to write because I'm doing so much better right now and it feels great! How are all of you doing with your writing? With the quarantine going on, I know it sounds like it won't get better but I know it will, even if you're dealing with writers block. I found that when it comes to my writing, I have to do something completely different for a minute, like draw or maybe watch some true crime or a kids movie.. Not in that order. Haha. The inspiration really hits me then and I can find a new angle that I hadn't seen before so that my writers block will fade, which is where I'm at right now.
I was listening to love songs and immediately saw a way to write this latest chapter of Transparent (I'm still editing but I'm going to start writing new chapters) and while it isn't really romantic or anything, the idea of what love can be for some people, was interesting for me. So, I'm going to write that down and try and see where it takes me. I say this confidently, but I'm currently in bed just grumbling about actually doing it. Haha. I think that Teddy Lupin himself is going to just be a character that I love too much and I'll be having him showing up a few more times in various other stories to cause trouble and give a little hard truths.
Are there are any characters you guys are just in love with?
How is life?
