Coffee Tuesday! ☕

A little blog update.

Salut! And welcome back to this little space on the internet. 

An Update

I haven’t been active as I should posting new material and reading your blogs lately for I’ve been busy with so many things. To be honest, I’ve thought about closing the blog many times, but God still wants me to carry on His online ministry so I’ll be here a while longer just not as active as before.  

Claiming La Petit/e Muse?

I must have told this story a few times on the blog, but when I first registered the name of the blog, it was supposed to be La Petite Muse. However, WP said that the name was already taken. I really wanted the “petite” to be a part of the title even if it meant using the masculine form which is “petit” which can also mean petty, insignificant or minor. Anyway, to make a long story short, I recently checked to see if La Petite Muse was available as I’ve been changing the logo and designs from “petit” to the rightful feminine form of “petite”. It’s still unavailable, but I’ll be going with the rightful form of “petite” from now where it concerns signatures and designs.

And that’s the tea. Er, I mean, story.

Stories and book reviews

I want to start doing book reviews again, but there’s a problem: I have not been reading lately. I also want to start posting the stories I promised (a few months back), but I put that on the back burner until perhaps next year be it the will of God.

More categories?

When will I stop coming up with new categories?! I spoke about future new categories in the last blog update, but at the moment, I don’t have any plans to fully introduce them just yet. And I’m yet to write about that Maracas trip.

Experimenting with siggies

Due to not having enough time to sit and create the designs I want at the moment, I went with this for one of the current signatures:

Although I like the dancing cat and the butterflies, I feel as if the color scheme is all wrong. I plan to design a proper signature soon, but when the time is right.

Only time will tell if this blog will eventually be a thing of the past, but at the moment, I’ll continue what the Lord has in store for me. I apologize for this boring update, but it had to be done.

I trust that your day was spent well and that you’ve accomplished all that you’ve set out to do.

Earlier this month, I talked about participating in NaNoWriMo this year and I was yet to make up my mind. Well, I did make it up recently. My friend is also participating and he is excited about doing it for the first time, so we’re embarking on a writing adventure from November 01st God’s willing. Yes, I am officially a participant of NaNoWriMo 2017.

But there’s a slight problem: I don’t know what to write about. 😦

I have so many stories that I want to bring alive, but I’ve narrowed it down to two: 

Dangerous Obsession: Two students take their obsession over a college professor too far when they kidnap him. (I know, I know, it’s cliché, but I’ve always wanted to write a  cliché story.)

Destiny: He is deaf, but it doesn’t stop his family from arranging a marriage for him. However, he does not want to get married to the chosen girl and turns to his neighbor for help in getting his family off his back. (This is not the actual title, but it works for now. Again, cliché, but I am feeling cliché this time around.)

Even this post isn’t NaNo ready, but let’s do this!

Coffee Tuesday! ☕, Ray & Marcus da Díxon 💙

Teaser Tuesday: The Barcelona Job

Teaser Tuesday:

My love for football is only growing despite our love-hate relationship. This 2017/18 season, I’ve decided to work on a story revolving around FC Barcelona which I’ll be working on at least twice a week. It’s also an excuse to practice my writing. ^^

There’s going to be talks of dribbles and tricks…

Here’s what I’ve worked on thus far:

SUMMARY

I literally suck at writing summaries, plots, etc., because they tend to change as the story progresses and I have to go back and rewrite them, but I have something that I can see myself sticking with.

It’s a French revolution in Spain!

Marcus da Díxon is a young football coach who is given the monumental task of overseeing FC Barcelona for the 2017-18 season. The team is aiming to win every silverware available beginning with the International Champions Cup. When Marcus first takes charge of the team he makes it clear to the boys that he did not take up the position to lose and he won’t be tolerating bad conduct.

The boys soon learn that their new coach is very vocal and vows to try their best to avoid embarrassment in the press, but things don’t always go as planned when they discovered that their new boss dislikes everything that their rival Real Madrid stands for including their bald headed coach.

EXCERPT

The story is still in the early stage, so I don’t have many chapters as yet. This bit is taken from the first chapter that I am yet to edit so excuse grammatical errors and lame sentences. 🙂

The journalists couldn’t stop staring at the new FC Barcelona coach and his mirror identical assistant. They were around 5’11” with strong handsome features. Their eyes were bluer than the skies above and their hair so brown that it could almost pass for a shade of auburn. They couldn’t be told apart very easily and the journalists were afraid to address the wrong one so no one said anything for a little over a minute until Marcus sighs and broke the silence with a dry joke,

“Don’t be afraid to speak Catalan; I’m a polyglot and so is my other half.”

A few of the journalists chuckled.

“Welcome to Barcelona, Mr. da Díxon,” a blonde haired man decided to go bravely. “We’re still on the fence about you given that the club ditched tradition this time and went for someone who didn’t even play for the club to coach the team. What makes you so special?”

Marcus shrugs. “Aren’t you special too?”

COVER REVEAL

I am having fun working on covers for potential stories and this one is my favorite thus far… 

Thank you for reading. 🙂
