Hello, DA. I'm thinking of posting the story I've been meaning to work on for the past year and a half. I've got a little bit of it written... but not nearly enough, in my opinion. xD

You'll notice all of my BJDs photographed here have names and back stories. I began the idea for the story with my first BJD, Ophelia, and from there decided to collect the rest of the characters I came up with. It's so cool to see them come to life. :3 I find it much easier to write the characters I actually have in my possession!

Anyway, the story revolves around Ophelia, both in this world and in her world, Terra Vera. Here, she has lived with her mother for her entire life, and has rarely ever been outdoors. She was home-schooled and spent most of her time with her timid little brother, Toby, or in Terra Vera with her father. The story begins immediately after Ophelia's mother passes away, and her aunt's family comes to live with her.

One of my issues is the audience for the story. I think my target audience is probably going to be a younger crowd, because I feel the concepts could be embraced by kids 10 and up. But at the same time, I don't want that to limit me. I'm hoping that like Harry Potter and other books in that sort of genre, it can be written so that anyone can enjoy it.

But then, what genre do I use to classify it? Will older people read it if I classify it as "children/teens"? I can't really classify it as fantasy either, even though half of it takes place in a fantasy world... I guess I'd be safe putting it in "general fiction"? Hm. If anyone actually reads this... let me know what you think. xD


Saffron-Lynn's Profile Picture
I am a grade A slacker, an accomplished space cadet, a carbohydrate addict, and 100% Canadian.

Don't worry, I have a good side too.

I'm also a girlfriend of 5 years, a Registered Veterinary Technician, an aspiring author, and a volunteer.

It is likely that I will die happily surrounded by a hoard of BJDs and cats. B) But in the meantime, I'm reconsidering the whole university thing, hoping I'll find a great job as an RVT, considering moving to the other end of the continent, and wondering "when will my liiiiife begiiiiiiin". In the words of a wise duplicate, "Life is hard. Then you die." But I'll try my best to enjoy every minute of it.

Send one to all your friends who you think deserve a hug (which, hopefully includes the person who sent it to you)!!

You might send it to your enemies as well!
It'll really make them stop and think!!!

If you don't receive this back, nobody likes you, and they wish you'd stop bugging them!

If you receive this back 1 time, open up! Find more friends, enemies, or enemies pretending to be friends

If you receive this back 2 times, you're off to a good start! (Unless you sent it to yourself! That's cheating!)

If you receive this back 3 times, you're a good friend.

If you receive this back 4 times, you're truly loved as a friend!!



Spread the DA love around! (you can copy and paste this message on their userpage!)

1- You can hug the person who hugged you!
2- You -MUST- hug 6 other people, at least!
3- You should hug them in public! Paste it on their user page!
4- Random hugs are perfectly okay! (and sweet)
5- You should most definitely get started
