Sorry about the reupload. I had to find a pc because trying to post a journal on app or just mobile suuuucks.


I hope my excitement isn’t premature but I feel like I’ve made some big progress and would love to share with all of you about what’s been going on. 

As some of you may know I’ve been putting a lot of work into editing Remnants of Nysera whenever I had some free time. That included content editing, especially a lot in the older parts. I have now finished yet another pass in my physical copy and now I also realized I can make the plot much more cohesive by removing some characters that appear is second half. It would also require  changing couple roles around. I feel like it will make things shorter and cleaner. 

So. For now I left it alone and plan to tackle it again soon. And hopefully it will be an easy one this time. I would love to finish it this year. I would probably look into running it through a proper editor to make certain it’s the best it could be. 

Meanwhile I finally… And I stress… FINALLY… picked up the main novel you might remember as Who’s the monster. (ugh that title)  (The one with Azuryt and Rilah that I left in the first place to write remnants as, in  a way, the intro for bigger story. 

I’ve spent the last week or two tossing ideas around in my head. How to reboot the whole thing and where to take it plot wise. And as I started to write things out a theme emerged for all the books. (I’m planning on splitting the novel into two parts which will make a trilogy all together) and lo behold after years of pondering I finally got the titles that are as official as they can currently get. 

I wanna keep all of them under Remnants of Nysera as the series title. With titles: 

The Scourge of chains - novella /prequel 

The Sting of Steel - part 1

Unbound - part 2

This is very exciting and I actually feel like it’s not something just hanging up in the air anymore. That it’s starting to take proper form and is happening :) (Smile)

I know a lot of you have been wanting to read it for so long now and I thank you for all the patience and support. And I can’t wait to share more.

Respite - vignette (Az and Rilah) by Sythgara    I can view other literature fine on this page except mine. I'm not sure what's up. Chrome displays it fine. Thanks
I feel I should focus on exploring more expressive styles than striving for hyper realism and anatomic accuracy. It's more fun and communicates so much more (the big eyes, expressive gestures and faces, exaggerations). What is your goal?
