YESSSS. I’M ALIVE. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?
I really am sorry I haven’t posted in over a month now. I know these are pathetic excuses, but I’ve been a writing slump this summer, so I’ve gotten pretty much ZILCH done in writing, I’ve been working on taming the horrifying and messy beast we call my bedroom, we started school kinda early and we’re trying to adjust to a new curriculum, and we have family coming from Iowa next week so now I’m like AAAHHH because my room is still a nightmare.
And I’ve been watching lots of YouTube videos in my free time instead of writing, so yeah, that’s where the instant gratification monkey comes in. :/ (I love Wait But Why’s tag line. “New post every sometimes.” XD XD)
Now, because I can’t just leave you with this short post, I’m going to tell you in a (hopefully) less confusing way what’s been going on.
- Beating myself up about being a terrible person because I keep sleeping late, I’m extremely disorganized, and I can’t keep an even balance between fun things, my must-do responsibilities, and other work that I’ve volunteered to do myself
- Farting around on YouTube
- Confusing myself about what to do with The Wolf and the Moon (plus other ideas that all have one thing in common)
You probably want to know about that third point, so here you go:
Why I’m Creating Controversy About A Few Of My Ideas In The Scary Place Called My Mind And Considering Making A Very Sad Decision Wow This Is A Long Heading
Exodus 22:18 — Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.
Witch — a woman thought to have magic powers, especially evil ones, popularly depicted as wearing a black cloak and pointed hat and flying on a broomstick. Synonyms: sorceress, enchantress, necromancer, etc.
Sorceress — a female sorcerer; a witch. (Sorcerer: a person who claims or is believed to have magic powers; a wizard.)
Enchantress — a woman who uses magic or sorcery, especially to put someone or something under a spell.
Necromancer — a person who practices necromancy; a wizard or magician. (Necromancy: the supposed practice of communicating with the dead, especially in order to predict the future.)
Magic — the power of apparently influencing the course of events by using mysterious or supernatural forces.

So, you can tell that magic and things related to it are demonic. For this reason, I have decided not to write about anything magical, paranormal, or alien (yes, aliens aren’t normally magical, but I have my own reasons to believe they’re demons. Read Genesis 6 KJV). Some things, like superhero stories or the Lance family story (it had elemental powered people in it) can easily be modified so their powers are the result of technology, or just take out the supernatural entirely (except things having to do with God, of course). But… The Wolf and the Moon? What do I do with that?
True, I could modify it like with superhero ones. That’s easy for Zev. Some sort of ring that uses technology to turn him into a wolf and give him fighting powers or something. But Luna’s doesn’t work that way. What technological powers could I give her that would have anything at all to do with the moon?
I could take out the superpowers altogether and just make it a Christian action/romance, but then how would I keep the title The Wolf and the Moon? I really, really don’t want to shelve it, but I also don’t think it’s a good idea to be writing about magic. Is there a way to make it work, I have no idea. Once I come to a conclusion I’ll update you.
With that out of the way, I’ll be putting another post out on Thursday and then hopefully one at least every three days after that until I figure out my schedules. See you then!
