December is here: It’s AIWFC time!

Can you believe it that it’s December already, and the year almost ends?

How time flies!

I’ve been hearing this song wherever I go. In the radio, in the store, in the bowling alley. Every time I hear this song it makes me smile, and you know what else? It’s crazy, but I can’t stop picturing Albert and Candy skating in the Rockefeller Center skating rink with their hands linked. 😀

To celebrate this joyous month, I plan to revise and re-release all chapters of All I Want for Christmas and will publish the prequel, previously known as AIWFC drabble series, as a collection of interconnected ficlet, All I Want, so stay tuned for that.

My Scribble Pad 5: Alternate Ending to Ninety Days (UW) (PG-13)

Fandom: Candy Candy

Rating: T

Characters: Albert and Candy

Summary: Alternate ending to Ninety Days.

Note: I feel so guilty for having neglected to work on my ongoing Candy Candy works. Alas my inspiration seems to have run dry, and my motivation bucket is running low. I don’t know if this can compensate for a fraction of my terrible offense, but I would like to offer this to you anyway.

Please keep in mind that this is not a complete (well developed) writing piece at all – it’s actually only a sketch plot with skimpy details and choppy paragraphs. So please don’t take it seriously.

The idea came to me last year near Christmas time when I contemplated on writing a Christmas story. At that time, I thought how similar the plot in DDL (Daddy Long Legs) to the original CC storyline (the part about the secret benefactor) and wanted to incorporate DDL into a CC fanfic somehow. As I began to plot the chapter, I noticed I could easily merge the story with Ninety Days. So I scraped out my plan to write the Christmas story (I ended up writing a completely different story: AIWFC) and wrote this as an extension to Ninety Days. If you remember in “Taming Desire” Candy fell asleep waiting for Albert, now imagine that instead of the scene where Albert came home late and she woke up when he carried her, the scene unfolds as described in the sketch plot below.

With that being said, if you’re still interested, please proceed. Otherwise, you can wait until I upload a proper chapter or a drabble. Thank you again for your patience.

News and Updates

I’m back from hiatus. Finally. After a week of fighting a severe jet lag and another week of wrestling with cold bugs, I’m back.

I know that I owe you a lot of updates, which includes: epilogue of Ninety Days, second part of the AIWFC drabble, new chapter of Chasing William Andrew, and so on.

I have to admit that it has been challenging for me to get back to writing, but eventually, after some struggling, I somehow managed to start writing again. That’s the good news. The not so good news is that unfortunately the writing that I’ve been doing is not related to my ongoing series – I’ll talk more about this later. But don’t fret, I will put an extra effort to publish at least the second part of the drabble before working on the epilogue. My goal is to finish this epilogue by end of year for sure.

Now, going back to my writing, I officially have branched out writing into other fandom (you might notice this already if you follow me on tumblr). After some deliberation (along with a suggestion from a dear friend), I’ve decided to post my works here too as part of My Scribble Pad project. So if you have the time, please read it, and let me know what you think. I hope you would still find my writing entertaining, despite it not being a Candy Candy story. 🙂

To those of you who have messaged me and left comments, I will respond to your comments and message soon, so please bear with me.

And last but not least, I just want to say thank you again for being so patient with me. Rest assured, I don’t plan to abandon any of my stories.

Friday Mini Rambling

Happy Friday everyone!

poll2So here’s the current standing from the poll. Albert from Ninety Days is winning but not by a land slide. Interestingly, Albert from Spring Fling is the one that is holding the second place. I didn’t expect this at all. I thought Fairy Tale and AIWFC will be on the top. Hmm… since Albert from Spring Fling seems to be quite popular, now I wonder if I should write a sequel for that story or something. Actually, the idea for a sequel for Spring Fling passed through my mind a while back but I decided to shelve it and focused on my main projects instead (FT and ND). Maybe I can revisit the idea now. 😉

On another note, my daily writing exercise hasn’t been going too well due to various reasons mostly related to real life situations. But I will not give up. I will keep going. I’ll just write whenever I can. And speaking of writing, I think I’m overdue for another AIWFC drabble. I’ll try to do one and hopefully can post it by the weekend.

Lastly, as I mentioned earlier, I plan to move my tumblr Candy Candy related posts to WP, and now I finally have time to do this tonight.

Update : Ninety Days and It’s More Than A Fairy Tale

I hope you like the penultimate chapter of Ninety Days: Two Hearts. It’s a long chapter with a lot of events happening within the short time frame. Albert is definitely moving fast, and 23 days still left from the 90-day period, he and Candy are already engaged. 🙂

On a similar note, I’m happy to say that the final chapter of Ninety Days is on its way. However, I don’t know when it’s actually going to be ready. Since this is the final installment, which also serves as the epilogue, I want to make sure that I can wrap this up nicely to bring a satisfying conclusion to the story, so it may take longer than usual.

Now that Ninety Days is at its final phase, I can start allocating my time to my other projects. Recently, my inspiration for It’s More Than a Fairy Tale is slowly coming back. And I know a lot of you have been waiting for the continuation of the story. Guess what? After some thinking, I’ve decided that I will focus on this story after Ninety Days is finished. Don’t fret. This doesn’t mean that I will abandon the other projects; I will still continue writing AIWFC drabble series and Chasing William Andrew. I might even write oneshot or minific (or even a sequel to Ninety Days). When the plot bunny strikes, there’s nothing that can stop it. 😀

Lastly, to commemorate this blog’s one year anniversary, there will be special posts coming soon.

So stay tuned. 🙂
