I am a writer, so I should be used to characters materializing, asking for favours (like giving them blue eyes or making them witty) by now. Normally, I look forward to hearing (and relaying) their stories as best I could, but when Rya asked, I was swamped!
It was around Christmas and I had a thousand other projects lined up -not to mention life decisions- so I told myself I'd sit this one out until it was the 'right time' to do it. Obviously, there's no such thing... See, I always know if something's going to be small or big, so I got intimidated by the number of 'big things' I was working on at once. But this doesn't mean that Rya has to suffer for my bad time-keeping.
My solution? I'm going to release her story out there in cyberspace. To be read by whomever stumbles upon it and hopefully, decides to stay with it. So I hereby make a contract with myself to see this through, and update every week, one scene at a time, until Rya's story's finally told. As it should be. :)
Thanks for reading! (Hint: think fantasy.) First scene to be posted on May 14.
