Resurrection: Back in the Saddle

So it's been a while,
Almost a year maybe longer since I posted anything of significance.

Life has taken many twists and turns in the last year. My family and I got evicted and I am now living with my aunt and uncle on my mothers side along with my parents. By day I am an android developer working with a local start up company. By night I like to write, play games, watch anime and talk to friends on google +

In all of this time I managed to get a girlfriend which is a major plus. I have been dating her for the last 7 months (In two days of the time of writing this!). She is my first serious relationship and first relationship in all. I'm happy its been going on so long and I don't see it ending anytime soon! Love yah Sammy!

So with the good there is the bad. Its life experiences that make your ability to write better, and its your fantasies that make writing worth your time!

- Well I'm back! :)

When I am not coding Android Apps:

Yeah so the title kinda says where I have been over the last few months. My father and I formed an android app Development Company(Home page: Here :D) and I have been working my butt off trying to get things rolling the way they should be.

All of this Aside I have decided that I'm going to go for NaNoWriMo this year with an idea I have off and on been trying to refine.

Now I am not an expert writer in the least but I feel its a suitable starting place to grow some roots out, make some friends and in general break into the scene.

Due to the nature of my work I will be writing generally from 10:30 - ?? On most nights. I know that 1000 words is easy enough which I will be picking up Chuck Wendigs Flash Fic challenges here soon.

Well this has been a brief update on my life and a rather large announcement of where I am going!

A change of Pace

I have decided that this is to be my "Hub" blog to which everything else will stream out of like a nice shot of brandy down a drunks face. All of this being said I have opened up a new blog since I will be writing in Chuck Wendig's Flash Fiction Challenges now. His website can be found at the following address: Chucks Blog

With all of this being said you will find a new fancy link at the top of the page aptly titled "Flash Fic's" Which will take you to my all new blog which I will be using strictly for FF and Flash Challenges!

New story idea I am working on: Monarch

This is something I have been kicking around for a while now. I dont know if I will make a story blog of it but none the less I have put some thought into it. With regards to characters and so on.

QNA time:

-Whats the general idea?-
In short terms its based on a thief set in industrial revolution era England. More specifically Liverpool.

-Why a thief?-
Good question, I guess the main character (Possible name: Curtis Valentine) finds that the world outside is not what he was raised to think it was. So he takes to the streets after figuring out how to break out of his families home.

-How doe he break out?-
I have yet to come up with this. I am thinking his parents pass away and he finds a hidden tunnel under his house that leads to a secret place in town.

-How old is Curtis?-
At the beginning of the story he is roughly 16.

-Do you have a name for the story?-
Right now I am thinking Monarch, simply because after Curt establishes himself he is seen wearing a mask that looks like a monarch butterfly.

That is about all for now.

Sorry I have not been around

For those who read this blog, I have been tied up with school and so on I have forgotten to write. Thankfully I am graduating tomorrow so I will not have to deal with the notion of school again for a while. However this means I will need to find employment or some form of income so as it were I am around again to get back to writing. Still as a hobby since its fun and mind boggling at times.

Next topic: My present Idea ("Love Bites")
Based in a society where Vampires and Humans co-exist on peaceful terms but love between a vampire and a human is strictly forbidden. In essence its the story of how Diedrich Escobar falls for a vampire he meets one day but something happens to put him in critical condition. The vampire (I'm leaning toward calling Ceres) decides it is in his best interest and in the interest of her own feelings to "Change" him into one of her own. Naturally the wrong people (There is a section of the government that is devoted to keeping the peace and the relations of vampires under control) get wind of Ceres's actions and the two have to go on the run completely and totally leaving their former lives behind for each other.

-As you can tell there are plot holes that I am working on such as how they meet. Exactly who they are what causes Diedrich to almost die, and so on.-

Now for the fun part I am beginning a new idea for vampires in which they when changed go through a painful 12 day period in which the chemicals in their skin causes them to become very pale. The key to vampirisim in this case is the a vampire can exist for three hours in direct sunlight. But not with out a cost. The cost being that after hour one their flesh starts to burn (Like a sunburn) that results after the third hour in them being completely charred. Thus allowing vampires to live seemingly normal lives.

So these are the updates :D

Side note: Ciel's Shorts?

I have been writing a short stories during class this last week Based on one of my Role Play characters. She is the Daughter of my former main character who goes by the name of Ciel which if you know French means Sky. (Not that I know French)

So suffice to say I have been toying with the notion of starting a series of short stories just based on adventures of her in day to day life. Thinking of Calling it "Ciel's Shorts" Since they are really short stories. Last one I wrote was based on Christmas and it being the day before and she did not get anything for anyone yet. So it was a hectic December 24th for her.

Well that is my word for the day. Go Blogger!

Welcome Home

Well to my new blog page as it were... and one that allows me to actually link to things :D -- Better then WP since I can link right to my things now.

A little word about yours truly, I used to have this thing for making different accounts and names for different things. Not because I wanted to hide myself. I just had this thing for names. So, now here I am. Alex Kollar doing what I love. Writing.

Hi nice to re-meet you.

So in light of all of this I am being myself always trying to be better but not obsessing over some alternate ID. I am who I am and I will damn well be just that.

-Thanks for your time :)
