I finally got my first “novel” (?) on Wattpad! It’s called Stardust House. I don’t know if we can consider this a “light novel,” but it’s my first try on having an original fiction actually being published and brought out to the public instead of locking it right here in my blog. I may probably be use this blog as my “extensive” liner notes of some sort in order to explain the content and the bases of where I came up with these ideas.
So far it only has three chapters and I’m currently working on the fourth chapter. So far, only a few friends have read it, and as you can see, due to my current (well, not quite current, ongoing is more like it) addiction to Japanese stories (mostly based on shoujo manga/anime and J-dramas), Stardust House has that familiar shoujo manga-esque feel in to it. I guess you can say it’s a typical teen love story but I try not to get things way too complicated.
For all the shoujo manga/anime/J-drama purists out there, I tried avoiding using too much Japanese language when the characters speak. After all, my main target audience is everyone around the world and not just Japanese readers. In addition, Wattpad does not have the capabilities of adding footnotes or liner notes to explain all these Japanese terms used for those who are unfamiliar with Japanese trends, colloquial terms, and such.
Constructive criticism is always welcome. You can even suggest ideas for the story also. However, if you do like the story regardless of my amateurish-style fiction writing, please do support it by visiting it at Wattpad and spread it through social networking from Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, even on Pinterest. I also originally posted this story at my group blog (with friends) called Let’s VOLT IN! Of course, Wattpad is better since it’s all out there and those with no websites or don’t really visit our group blog.
Thanks for your attention and hope you have a chance to read it! Doumo arigatou gozaimasu!1
