Dear, guys – welcome back to Letters From Liz!
I’ll keep this post pretty short since it’s more so an update for the readers who follow the series’ running on my blog currently!
As you may know, The Teenage Tell-Tale has wrapped up! Milo and Sophie and the rest at Beverley Junior High are now moving onto high school; Waverly High to be exact! While I really did enjoy writing the story of these teens, I definitely felt like I wasn’t having fun writing them as much as I used to because this chapter of their story was coming to an end. So, I decided to end the series… momentarily!
I really adore these characters and this universe for many reasons, but the main reason is that it brings me back to my own teenage years and it allows me to really reflect on how teens behave and react to different things in their lives. I also hold Milo and Mollie close to my heart; they’ve been characters of mine since I was in 8th grade, back in 2008. I love writing about them, and you even get to see them in other series that are happening within the blog as we speak! (I mean, Mollie is Grace’s mother in The Something Series as well as Milo being Emerson’s father!) My point being is that I love to write and view their lives at different stages within them, which is why I decided to take a little hiatus on this series to gather up some ideas to continue their story, but now in high school. It will definitely bring a different and more mature perspective (as well as more serious situations) into these characters’ lives and as a writer, I just need to do some brainstorming.
In the meantime, I am focusing on getting more of Black Sheep in Society written and posted because Micah and Rosie also hold special places in my heart and their story is something that I never really did before! There’s so much more to come within that series, and I’m excited to sit down and start writing more of their story and develop the series even more. In the meantime, this series might be moved to Tuesdays, just so that Saturdays can go back to Overexposed. But yeah! I really do enjoy writing about Micah and getting to know him better as a character since he is fairly new in the universe I’ve created in my mind for them! Rosie was actually a character I wrote as a supporting character in a short film I was writing back in college in my screenwriting class. Her story is definitely inspired by that universe I created in that screenplay, and I hope you guys love her in the way that I love her!
As for The Something Series, we will be wrapping up season 1 next month! To be quite honest, I felt a bit worried about the future of that series because there’s so much that needs to be done, and I sometimes feel like I don’t have time to execute it the way I would like to. So, I decided to write the season finale, and my God, I hate myself for being this cruel. But, it’s sparked inspiration for the series and started to write Season 2 and I’m so excited for it to be released! Season 2 will be posted in April (I believe the end of April?) and hopefully, answers about Jamie and Grace will be provided because let’s be honest, Those two will be the death of me. But like the other series they are constantly running through my mind and ideas are always forming – it’s just knowing how to write them in a efficient and realistic way.
I think that’s all for now! Stay tuned for the Something Series and Black Sleep of Society later this week, and I’ll see you on the other side of the writing universe. Again, thank you so much for your support in me and in the blog.
