WEB-SERIAL: THE RED THREAD ~ EP. 5

Standard

Hey everyone! Okay, so an update — episode 5! A friend of mine was not pleased with the cliffhanger from last week, so I promised that I would post today to make up for it!

Hope that you’ve been enjoying it so far. Again, please, please, please send me your thoughts and comments. I would really love to hear from you.

I’m also hoping that from next week, when I get back to university, I’ll be posting more often (having regained my normal routine!) If you want me to talk about certain things, let me know!

As for the web-serial, I’m thinking about shaking things up a bit: a change of perspective. As much as I love Mei, it’s sometimes far more interesting to watch things unfold from the sidelines.

So, I’ll leave you with one thought: what do you do when you know a secret that could potentially ruin everything? Keep quiet, or be honest? It’s a problem we’ve all faced at some point in our lives, whether minor  or major. However, for the characters in The Red Thread, it could mean a complete shift in their relationships…

So, stay tuned for the next episode!

So…here’s comes Episode 4! Thanks so much for supporting me this far! I’ll keep doing my best, and keep you interested!

I do apologise for one thing though: so far, it’s just been my web-serial that I’ve been publishing. But I finally get back into some normal routine next week, expect some more rants, and more reviews on books, music, and things that influence me — I’m even considering vlogging….!

Oh! Also, if you’re interested to learn more about me, you can check out my ‘life-story’ (whatever this means!) by clicking here.

SO, episode 3! Just as a recap:

Mei Shinenaga, a 23 year old Japanese-born student-doctor has recently moved from London with her energetic and determined best friend and colleague, Emilia Jacobs. As they leave London, they somehow come across an old friend of Emilia’s, Yue Russell. Exotic (being half-Chinese, half-English), attractive, flirtatious, a joker, it turns out that Yue is following Mei and Emilia to their university to do a Masters. But to Emilia’s great dismay, Yue is being accompanied by none other than the distant, cool, and surprisingly untalkative Tristan Leannán*, the heartthrob of Emilia’s high-school, who disappeared right after A-Levels. By the time that everyone collects for the start of the new term, Tristan, with no place to live now that Yue has found a new girlfriend to sharing his accommodation, ends up living with Emilia and Mei, despite their hesitation.

(* Yes, I have changed Tristan’s surname…!)

Okay, I’ll have to admit that this episode is also a bit slow. But isn’t the fact that Tristan is living under one with Emilia and Mei already quite dramatic?!

Enjoy! I might be cheeky and release Episode 4 slightly early…so keep watching this space!

Web-Serial: The Red Thread ~ Ep. 2

‘Eat. Pray. Love.’ 

At the moment, I’m just about finding time to do the first of these three things. On top of that, I really need to add read in there somewhere. But I’m not particularly sure where it fits…yet.

Time. It’s something that we all have, and yet all lack. Everyone – and I mean everyone – is obsessed with ‘convenience’, getting things done ‘quickly’, reading something ‘short’, so as to add even more things to that endless ‘To-Do List’. So let’s face it: the idea of reading any Proust is a distant dream right now.

At the end of the day, you need to make time, dedicate time to those things that matter to you, otherwise you’ll just get lost in that labyrinth of unending normality and boredom.

…and this is my long-winded entry into the second episode my web-serial, The Red Thread.

I hope that you are all enjoying it so far. Even for me, the story feels a bit slow, but I really want the characters to come alive, and for us to relate to them. As time goes by, you (should!) enjoy things a lot more!

I promise to be more online from now on!

Enjoy!
