Hello everyone, i am speaking from my sister's PC in her house in Bariloche, Rio Negro, at the West of the country and possibly very far from my house and beloved computer, in my vacations to visit her, my brother-in-law and my two nephews (Which one of them is my goddaughter now
). Before speaking about hte previous topic, i want to present you my sadness for the lowest number ever i had of comments in a journal entry (The previous one).
Sadness: Go fudge yourself >
Well, as i see, he is on xD (Seriously, don't make me feel i am talking to myself, i've got reasons to not to do so).
Alright, tying up that loose end, i wanna tell you the purpose of that weird (?) title.
Some days ago, i talked to my dear friend Julian and asked him a question that it is about a famous Argentine novelist's science fiction novel "El Eternauta" (Trust me, if you do love science fiction and wanna see how very well gifted the imagination of an Argentine writer is, then give that book/comic book a shot, because it's so famous it has been translated in almost any known language... except Klingon), and then i felt like... whaaaaa?
After mentioning that book/comic book (That by the way, i read some time ago, and the book, not the comic book) and taking deep thoughts about all the (Not very high) achievements i made with my fanfictions and the compliments i've received about my imagination, humor, and narrative style, i just thought the same thing i was gonna think when i would debate marrying the love of my life: "Life can be short and cruel sometimes, and you only live twice, so why not taking the chance now before it's too late?"
, in this case, even through i won't promise you anything since we haven't met in real life... yet. But oh yesh i will).
After thinking that, i then thought a phrase i always apply when i wanna try something new: "The only wasted effort is the one which was not done" (In Spanish sounds better, but you may understand me xD).
After thinking that, i took a sip of my coke xD
After doing that, i thought about the day i've been told i was diagnosed with autism (i was 13 years old), and then compared that to the reason of why i always daydream with extreme and imaginative stuff, like... i was born to be also a writer! And that after my diagnosis, being a writer was one of my many dreams!
And then proposed someone to myself which my brain took 30 minutes to decide: If i ever pass at least one of my two upcoming university tests with the minimal approved mark possible... i will write my own novel! (Yeah, those ones that you publish and take part in a library as novels, like the Jules Verne's or Charles Dickens' ones).
(For those who don't know, i am in the heck of study right now, since i have TWO damn tests next week at the mere start! Unfair, isn't it?).
The decision, took by the Almighty Brain Council was... "Sure, why not?".
Decision taken, i have now a compromise after the tests (If i ever pass at least one of them with the minima- blah blah blah!). And i decided to make a journal entry about it and another one after the test with the results, so you can have the chance to watch over me write it! (Don't ask me how xD) It's like making a fundable project on Kickstarter and upon reaching the goal, the backers (People who donated money) will have to watch over the project creator in order to ensure that the project is in process (No idea how i know so much, so much internet for an eternity? XD).
Sure, this may be my biggest project ever, but it is not! Entering college and suffering mathematics in order to pass to the real career is my biggest project ever, no "Top 10" of anything else.
Now that i told you this, onto the project: What can i say? I gave some small sneak peeks to my friend
in a public manner, you can read them and make conclusions about what it's gonna be the plot and everything, through it's so easi to define at least the theme.
No clue? Well, some sneak peeks:
-Science fiction comedy.
-Alien invasion on Earth.
-The narrative will be in first person, and will be written in the same way as other books (And i read a lot of them to check)
-Practically, the series might take place in some different parts of Argentina (Based on my knowledge of the provinces i've visited in previous vacations i took), but it can also take part in the entire globe.
-It will try to be entirely original, came out from my mind, even through some things may be already taken in another sci fi novels (Psionics... woops! Spoilers!).
-It could have and ensemble cast (Don't know what is it? Well, it's like "The Expendables" movie sereis, will have hell a lot of characters who will take the protagonist role at some points of the story.
-And last but not least, some characters might have the same appearance and personality as some of my dA relatives (You) and OCs (Rod and Marcela will appear, for example, but in humanized, non-powered and different characters).
Well, something else to say? Oh, almost forgot.
The only goal is to actually write it and maybe no more, i dunno how much hard will be able to publish it or make it appear at libraries and such, it may cost a lot, considering i won't put the printer to print every page of the so many copies (I dunno if so many xD) i intend to make, and if it will cost me money, i will put aside something i initially wanted: I wanted to make everything for free, Ad Honorem, because the mere publish stuff will make me feel very good with myself, like "OMG! You published a book! YAAAY!", and will make me reconigze myself as a true (Non-professional) writer. But if it costs a lot of money... no choice but to make this copyright agreement and receive some part of the winnings from the book sellout.
Secondly, if i ever pass one (or two) of the test and the decision is taken... please don't rush me, because college still continues after that and for many years. I would be able to write, in a greater extent... two days a week, and that isn't enough to write pretty much since it's gonna be long (And therefore, it's gonna cost more to publish, if i ever want to do that). I actually have some sketches about it (That i am gonna put as some few illustrations if it turns into a paper book) which i am gonna upload after i pass (If i ever pass).
No intention to make it Best-seller, i don't dream that, just a book with reviews, through i won't feel good if it receives bad reviews.
And lastly... my sincere thanks to Hector German Oesterheld (Rest in Peace, because of Videla ¬¬) for writing that wonderful novel, it surely shows Argentina's imaginative and very well cultural face. It also inspired me for this.
After all of this said, i am off to study everything i have, and... see ya and thanks for reading all of this, i'll tell you this next Wednesday (If i have the results) how everything went, and if it is positive... i'll prepare myself for the mass writing!
