Zdravo svima! (Hello everyone!) I know that it’s been a really really long time and you guys have probably forgotten this exists, but here I am, haha.
First – the story. I would really like to get back into writing, so it’s possible that new chapters might start coming back out again, but I’m not sure. When (at some point lol) I come back to this story, I plan for it to be way less political than it was becoming and to focus on the characters again like I did earlier. I had always put my interests into the story, so I tried to do that when I got interested in history (which of course comes with politics), but looking back, it was kind of rushed and didn’t really fit with the rest of the story. I will keep some of the world-building I had done, since now that I’ve expanded their world it feels weird to shrink it, but… right now I do plan to make it a bit more like it had been. (I’d love to hear your thoughts on this, it isn’t definite.) I also know that you guys did enjoy the world building and realism I’d put in and I still want to write stories like that, with historical/semi-political themes, but I’m not sure if this is the story to do it with. (If I did make historical stories, though… would you guys be interested in them? They may not be simlit…) If you guys have any ideas for how this story should continue (ideas for any of the characters’ lives, or even some small world-building, ect) , I’d love to hear them and rediscover my own story again lol. If you’re reading this, hvala (thank you) for sticking with the story and with me for so long. It means a lot and if you have any questions about this, please ask! 🙂
Second – my life… I know that I really don’t talk about myself that much, but there is one big thing that’s happened and is partly why I’ve been gone so long (and it explains the italic words I’ve been using). So, because of my interest in history that led me to learning more about the world, I applied for a youth exchange program in around listopad (October) of 2019. We had to submit a lot of forms and do interviews, and in prosinac (December) I learned that I had gotten accepted! In siječanj (January), all of the kids that got accepted found out which country they would be living in next school year, and there have been a couple training things we’ve gone to since then as well as working on the language and working on a research project. So… next year, I’m going to be living in Croatia, and I’m so excited! The italicized words are in hrvatski! (Croatian!) Getting ready for exchange is, like I said, a big reason why I haven’t had time to think about this story, but I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with it even before then…
Anyway, thank you all again. Please tell me whatever your thoughts are on the story, I’d like your input for where to go next with all of this. Hvala! (Thank you!)
