Six word story, yay.

Longer things eventually, hopefully. At the very least I have stuff from this creative writing class when it's over.

Sorry I've not been around. Everything is just not going well. It's my final semester at college (not coping well with this).

My broken foot keeps having how long it will take it to get better upped - currently, hopefully sometime around the New Year if I don't hurt it again. And they were right when they said the boot was screwing up my knee. It still hurts.

And one of my professors just up and quit, so that was great (I seriously had a breakdown in class when they told us it was moving to online. Thankfully the professor taking it over was willing to work with me).

On the bright side, my creative writing class is going well and I'll have stuff to show you all at some point. Including bits and pieces of "The Happy Prince" retold from the swallow's point of view, and why I would choose a powerless character's pov to write from.

I might have published academic works at some point in the future. We'll see. They'd be in Criminal Justice, at least to begin with.

I might try and do NaNo. I know what I want to do (a retelling of "Diamonds and Toads", because again, I like relatively damaged, relatively powerless povs, because I wanted more main characters like that as a kid and I still do as an adult.)

Last thing: Noldorin Icon Family Members - who wants Anonymous Annatar again this year?

How have you all been?
That would be me. This is great.

Soliciting opinions: I have no choice but to go back to school, where I have a two block walk between my apartment and my normal class building. I have the feeling that if this doesn't heal quickly and I'm still in a cast/boot, I'll either have to use crutches or have some kind of wheelchair/knee scooter/whatever.

I feel like people will think I'm lazy for the 2nd option and only crutches as absolutely necessary to get somewhere, but I'm incredibly unsteady and have vertigo under the best of conditions. So I guess what I'm asking is should I look into getting a wheelchair or give into the probable judgment of the people around me?
General setting and idea: Right before the giving of Achicometl’s daughter to the Mexica (aka Aztecs) in order for her to become a goddess. Likely going through the discovery at the feast that she was sacrificed in order to do this.  

Why?: Because the Aztecs have both the characteristics of being one of the civilizations I’m interested in and having something known about them, making them a better choice than the Indus Valley civilization. In addition, I like the play of normal for one cultural group versus normal for another, and how the two sides can conflict.  

Characters:

  • Achicometl – leader of the Culhuacan. Has at least one daughter and likely more children of both genders.
  • Achicometl’s daughter. Somewhat nervous about being made a goddess.  I think I want the pov to either be her’s or Achicometl’s.
  • Aztec priest? – Sees nothing wrong with what he’s doing, and doesn’t even think about needing to explain
  • Background characters as needed – probably advisors and random Aztecs

Concerns:

  • Obviously, details are scarce. Aztec writing is mostly from the 16th century, long after these events occurred, and the people of Culhuacan didn’t have a writing system. So exact details about the event are scarce.
  • Could have tendency to come off as shocking, instead of being a somewhat normal part of cultural beliefs (for the Aztecs. The Culhuacans, not so much). This could make pov problematic. Making it from the Culhuacan pov could lead the Aztecs to come off as savage, which is not what I want to achieve. But I also want to show the Culhuacan view that this is seriously wrong.
  • Names might kill me.
  • Need to figure out when different portions of the Axtec belief system developed, so things don’t show up much earlier than they should.
HFW: Part I, Brainstorm
Hopefully this doesn't go completely off the rails.

Probably depressive.

I have weird flashes of stories in my brain sometimes at night.
