In the unlikely case that anyone is interested, I've posted the finished Windswept vignettes to my Fictionpress account. I seriously doubt that there would be much interest for them, but at least they'll be accessible. Perhaps one day I'll find the inspiration to write more. I like to play in that 'verse, and the vignette form saves me the trouble to work out long, complicated storylines I would never have the time to finish anyway.

Got last year's evaluation results of my work.

Currently, my only other original stuff are the snippets of the "Windswept" universe. I tried to rework the intro according the suggestions of [livejournal.com profile] stevie_carroll in the recent days, during which I've discovered a fairly old version of the first page written up somewhere, that doesn't match the newer concept at all. But I kinda like it, too. So I'm a bit uncertain what to do... not that it would matter. Getting something published in English would be even more impossible than in Hungarian.

So, that's it about original writing, I guess, at least for the present. If I live long enough to retire, who knows...

Note:
The description of the chosen planet is based on the excellent book “What if the Moon Didn’t Exist?” by Neil F. Cumins.

There isn't more at the moment, I'm afraid. I just wanted to kick off the entire thing plot-wise.

WINDSWEPT – THE CITIES

Note:
This is just a first, tentative set of places. The names will likely to be changed, more characters will be added gradually, and so on.

So, that’s all so far. All and any ideas are welcome, and a joint effort to use all this stuff isn’t out of the question, either.

Due to the flattering interest shown for my fledgling universe, I'm giving you some of the background facts. :)

This is the original outline of the universe; some aspects may be changed as things develop, but these are the basiscs.

Coming up next: main characters and important places.

Now, remember, this isn't an actual story; just like with the previous snippet, I was trying to get a feeling for the character.

... I'm giving the short piece of original fic that insisted to be written, despite hellish temperatures, last night. I know I've posted a bunch of background info on LJ somewhere, but I seem unable to find it. So, I'm just posting this little appetizer on its own.

That's it for starters. Ask questions if you're interested.

... not that it would say anyone a thing, since it's written in Hungarian, but I've finally given myself a kick in the backside and typed up the next chapter the Grand Epos and posted it to Fictionpress.com. Yes, it's the same Grand Epos(TM) that misses a hundred pages or more from the middle. Someone borrowed my only copy and never gave it back, and I can't remember who it was.

In any case, the Grand Epos is some 1,500 pages long, and with today's heroic action I reached Page 41 - so it will take some time until I'll have to force myself to sit down and rewrite the missing parts as well as I can remember them. Wish me luck. :(

In other news, work restarts tomorrow, so creative work will be seriously quenched. At least I've overcome the cold... well, mostly. Gah, I hate it when holidays end!

A conversation over at [livejournal.com profile] picowrimo made me dig out the still existing parts of my Grand Epos (TM). Meaning the 1,500+ pages of original fantasy written in Hungarian, some 25 years ago. The same one the middle 200 pages of which I've lent to someone and never got back. *sighs*

In any case, I did some typing up of the very first book of the epos. Chapter 2, to be more accurate. It's an interesting experience, typing in Hungarian (which I do rarely, and which requires the use of a different set of fingers than used in English, due to the different alphabet). So is facing the style in which I used to write a quarter of a century ago - which is, erm, a little bombastic, I must ruefully admit. It's a good thing that we outgrow ourselves, given enough time.

Still, I believe that with a bit of cosmetic uplifting, the Grand Epos (TM) would be still salvageable... if I could gather the strength to rewrite the missing parts. If I could be entirely sure what was in the missing parts. Certainly, I know the outlines, but the details have gone lost during the years in-between. *is sad*

I believe I'll give it a try, eventually. But until then, I have at least a few hundred pages to type up (the story was written on an old, mechanical typewriter, back in the Stone Age, when computers filled entire rooms), so perhaps I'll get into the spirit, after all.

Forgot to mention: I've updated [livejournal.com profile] telekis_vendiak, my reading recommendation page. Added the first piece of original fantasy, yay!

I've finally come around to start posting my grand epos - yeah, the one lacking a fairly large portion from its middle. It doesn't matter, though; it will be months, if not years, until I get to the parts that need to be written anew, so what the heck. I've started, which is the most important thing. Since I can't hope to get it published any time, I thought Fictionpress.Com will be the only solution.

Since it's written in Hungarian, which none of my friends understand, giving the link is actually a moot point. Nonetheless, should someone wish to take a look at the beauty that is my mother tongue, just from the purely aesthetics of it, it can be found here. And perhaps someone who understands Hungarian stumbles over this entry (like [livejournal.com profile] altariels sister) and gives the story a chance. *g*

So, we've finally put down the Christmas tree yesterday - took us long enough - and that meant today was flat-cleaning day. Oh, joy! There are no words to describe how much I hate housework, especially cleaning and ironing. No words in any language, living, dead or artificial. Not even in the Black Speech of Mordor.

Ah, well, somebody has to do it, and I can't expect Mum to run around with the frigging vacuum cleaner (especially as she doesn't have full use of her right arm since she was mugged three yeards ago) or to push heavy furniture out of the way.That's the disadvantage of living in a small flat with furniture that was originally meant for a much larger one. Anyway, that can't be helped, and we've survived it again.

I've decided to put up some of my Hungarian stuff to FictionPress.Com, since Hungarian is now a language option both there and FF.Net. Not that I'd expect reviews or even many readers - my German stuff, too, got largely ignored as well. It doesn't matter. I wanted the things to be available in at least one public archive, and I'm going to put up all the pieces of the Grand Epos (TM), whose middle piece has been borrowed and never returned. Perhaps while typing up the first 400 or so pages I'll get the inspiration to recunstruct that which is lost.

So, can someone get me one of those Harry Potter gizmos; the one with the help of which Hermione managed to work 72 or so hours in a single day? I sure as hell could use one.

Next week: two choir events, on Thursday afternoon and on Sunday morning, plus ungodly amount of the usual work, not to mention rehearsals with the kids, as our annual cultural event is only a month or so away. Ain't life fun?

Actually, it is... assuming people would let me do my work. We'll see.

I've posted the English version of "The Dragonbirth" to [livejournal.com profile] edhellondawards. Originally, it was a piece of original fiction, written in German, but I've translated it and adapted as Chapter 2 of "The Dragon Slayer", a story about Fram and Scatha the Worm I've been playing to write for many, many years. Needless to say that this is the only existing chapter so far, aside from some tidbits. But perhaps some of you might like it.

The original version can be read in German, at [livejournal.com profile] hiddenrealms.

Just a little background trivia, not to the original mythology but to the actual adventure series - the one that consisted of more than 1,000 pages.

Based on Hungarian folk tales - which is all that is left from our original culture. The Hungarian version is posted to [livejournal.com profile] hiddenrealms. This is just a raw translation and doesn't even come close to it.
