Future plans and wishes... · 6:54am
It's been a long time since I've last been active here, and I think it is time to stop and think about the future. You know, many of you have asked me whether I am ever going to write a sequel to Viva Las Pegasus. I appreciate your comments, and the fact that you've enjoyed reading my humble fic, so the least I can do is be honest with you.
I don't know if I will be able to write a sequel. I don't know if I'll even want to write a sequel, or any other story. I had great fun writing VLP, but in the end I was driven more by personal commitment to finishing the story than by fun and enjoyment. I ended up quite burnt out, and right now I don't feel like walking down that road again. Besides, at the time I had more spare time to devote to writing, and at the moment both real life and other hobbies have kicked in, leaving me with very little time to think on creating another story.
Besides, I want to avoid the comparison factor. I believe there's not much room for improvement in my writing or storycrafting abilities, provided that I want to stay at an amateur level. Therefore, I don't want to end up creating something that is immediately compared to VLP, with poor results for it. I would feel disappointed, because I tend to want to go further with every step I take; and frankly, I don't want to risk that. Not now, at least.
As for wishes, there is little more I could ask for regarding VLP. I would love to hear an audiobooked or dramatized version of the story (because, to be honest, it's so dialogue-centric that I believe it would do a nice audio piece), but I know it hasn't got the presence of the original or PH, so I doubt I'll ever see that wish fulfilled. Still, hopes never wither.
I also love when friendly folks create fanart for VLP. I've already had some wonderful people draw the characters of the story, such as CalamityB31, Geekladd or Turtledude999; but any other works will be welcome with open arms.
Once again, thanks a lot to all of you who have enjoyed reading my fic, and to those who have contributed in any way, shape or form to making this a little bigger.
