I encourage you to follow my new website, ted-writes.com, if you’re following this one. Thanks for reading!
Thanks for reading Akayama DanJay. I enjoy writing in my free time, and I feel more fulfilled having done it in an area where people can pop in and check it out, and including commentary to try explaining what I’m on about. It’s also nice to say, “Hey, check out AkayamaDanJay.com!” and have people say, “huh?” and then I spell it out and maybe they check my website later, if they remember.
But I’ve learned a lot in the last year and a half or so, and it’s time to leave this story and move onto new projects. I hope you can join me in breaking new ground. Here’s my plan:
I want to make a new website called TedWrites.com. This will be easier to tell people about, because I won’t have to say, “well, it’s two characters’ names, except it’s really sort of two-and-a-half characters’ names, see…” The new site will be a hub for all my stories and whatever other projects I assign myself. I’ll move Akayama DanJay onto the new site, in a new order as I’ve mentioned before, but I’ve already planned out the next novel-length-work I want to write.
I’m more or less using this site to host the second draft of a novel while I write it, under the guise of a weekly web series. Eventually I hope to clean up the text and see if I can get it published for realsies, or self-publish it on Amazon, or something. (Many publishers won’t consider anything previously posted online, but I’ll burn that bridge when I come to it.)
The first half definitely needs cleaning up. I included everything I wanted to write about—but I still need to make it good.
