Lost Then Found: Chapter Seven

First of all, before you ask, I have no idea who the chicks in the image above are. It’s a photo I found on some stock photo site. I was like “Oh, hot chicks in masks? RELEVANT.”

And here we are.

Now that that’s out of the way–hi guys! Long time no see.

I’ve written the seventh chapter of ‘Romance and Suspense’ also commonly referred to as Lost Then Found. 

(I swear I will up my book-naming skills for my next story.)

Click Here to read the long awaited Chapter Seven!

I recommend re-reading Chapter Six too, as it has been quite a while.

I know it has taken me forever to update. Trust me, I know. You guys remind me every day, multiple times.

I was originally going to spend some time talking about why I took so long to update, but I realized that as much as I love you guys and want you to understand where I’m coming from… I’m the Avatar writer and you gotta deal with it B)

I'M THE AVATAR AND YOU GOTTA DEAL WITH IT

I’m also the Avatar btw, fun fact.

BUT if you are new here, and want to learn a little bit about me, then check back here in a few days for another blog post of the personal variety. If, however, you give zero fucks about me, and are only interested in my writing and Lost Then Found, then this is the only blog post you need and you may proceed!

For future reference, if I haven’t updated in a while and you’re wondering where I am. I’m not dead. I’m either:

  1. Working.
  2. Sleeping.
  3. Eating.
  4. Gaming.
  5. Having sex.
  6. Working during the hours I’d normally be sleeping, eating, gaming, or having sex.

Actually can you just hook me up to an IV? Thanks.

 

A good way to check if I’ve died is by checking my Twitter account (@TalethP). I’m pretty active on there and if I’ve died it’ll be pretty obvious since I tweet every gay, nonsensical thought to enter my head pretty much throughout the day.

The waffles are my tweets.

My twitter followers, probably.

That being said. I will never give up on Lost Then Found. There will never be a time where I say “I’m not going to finish this story.” You know why? Because I have PLANS for this story, including Alex’s Girl.

I want to finish the first draft of Lost Then Found, which you guys are reading, and then I want to edit the hell out of Alex’s Girl, and I want to edit the hell out of Lost Then Found, and then I want to get them professionally edited, and then I want to get professional cover art, and then I want to make that shit available for purchase on Amazon or some shit so you guys can have a copy on your shelves, or in your Kindle Cloud.

So before you message me asking me if I’ve died or if I’ve given up–I HAVE NOT DIED (I am immortal) and I HAVE NOT GIVEN UP ( I have plans).

SO ANYWAY. Back to Chapter Seven.

The Chapter song is Lost Kitten by Metric.

I don’t think there are any major spoilers in the below, but just to be safe you should read the chapter first.

This was a hard chapter to write, not because I didn’t enjoy it, but because there were a lot of…logistics involved? What’s Salvatore’s plan? What’s Val’s counter plan? How would Alex react to this this, and this? How would Laura react to this this and this? What questions would naturally be asked? Etc etc. Once I figured that stuff out it was actually not so bad, but I didn’t have a lot of free time to dedicate to figuring it out.

GUYS WRITING IS REALLY HARD AND CAN GET REALLY CONFUSING.

The first half of Chapter Seven is a LOT of set up for future events, which I think can make the story seem ‘slow’ but I hope the 2nd half, the party scene, makes up for it.

I actually learned a lot about the venetian carnival while researching masks, and I definitely want to go to Venice.

Here are some masks I was looking at when trying to figure out what fit who:

Wolf Mask– I imagine Val wearing a solid black one, except with devil horns, because of course.

Like a pussy cat version of Laura’s silver lioness mask. These masks are called ‘gnaga’.

Cool ass lion mask.

These are pantalone masks. Gabe was wearing a mask this style. They’re pretty goofy looking, which is why I thought Gabe would totally be into it.

This creepy motherfucker is wearing the traditional Bauta costume. This is what the armed guards were all wearing at Laura’s birthday party.

We all know Darby was reppin’ some shit like this.

Salvatore wasn’t there, but he’d look great in this.

This is what Ciro’s bear mask probably looked like.    Just kidding. I couldn’t find a bear mask that didn’t look stupid af.

Here are some of the traditional venetian mask types!

 

Also, fun fact: There are currently two named characters in Lost Then Found that are actually the protagonists from stories I will be writing one day (and whose stories, for the most part, I’ve fully outlined.) It’s basically like characters from my other stories are making a cameo, except you don’t realize it’s a cameo because you haven’t read their stories yet! Feel free to speculate on who they are.

Anyway I think that’s it. Like I said, there will be another blog post in a few days just to update you guys a bit on my life (and to give you some insight into my busy schedule).

Also I definitely wrote and then never posted the Little Red Riding Hoodie blog post I promised back in like, November, so I’ll eventually get around to that too, I swear.

Back to writing.

Happy reading!

-Taleth.
