So, if you've been wondering what I'm up to right now, here you go! I currently have about twenty pages of this story written right now and I intend to start posting some of it soon enough. I'm really passionate about this story and these characters right now, so it's been my main focus the past few weeks. I've been trying really hard to keep the dialogue in line with the times, but I don't want to overcomplicate the text either. It's been quite the challenge! This is also the first time I'm working with a third-person/omniscient narration on a long-term basis, which is also a challenge for me! The title is also not final. If I think of something a bit more interesting, I'm going to change it. This title is probably temporary. The photo I've used is Leonardo Da Vinci's drawing of a fetus in utero. I really thought it matched the tone I was going for. Chapter 1 will be up at some point, but I'm not sure if this is something that I'm ready to start routinely updating yet. We'll see how things go!

This was inspired by my friend I told him what I believed would be the best way to live, which - summarised - goes something like this: to find an impossible goal to accomplish and to spend the rest of your life trying to make it happen, and most importantly, enjoying the journey to the goal. He immediately replied by telling me it seems a very buddhistic way of thinking. I was raised a christian though, and I'm not actually Buddhistic as such, it's just the way of thinking that seems to be similar to Buddha's
