Chapter 34:

Author's Forward


Hello everyone this is Zawia 🙋‍♂️,

I thank you for reading Downcaster. Writing this novel has been one of the most stressful and fun times of my life. I learned tons of things about writing a novel from pacing, to dialogue, to writing different characters, and much more tiny details that will take me hours to write about.

I've met many creative people on the HF community server. People who are much much more talented than I am, and people who inspired me to finish this novel. This might not be a surprise to any of you, but this is my first novel ever! Entz was the main character for last year's competition, but I decided to scrap my idea and write the novel privately. However, when this competition came to my attention, I forced myself to sit down and write!

I admit, the pacing was horrendous, and it's something I am not proud of! So I hope you'll forgive me. The novel could have been much longer than it is, but I got sick for a total of 20+ days during the months of June and July and couldn't write anything at the time.

Anyways, this is not for me and I'll never ever stop writing, not unless I lost my passion for it(which is a small probability, but you'll never know!). Unfortunately, I will stop posting on the HF website, because I am going to be using the novels I write to send to publishers, and it's much easier than keeping a schedule of when I'll post.

I am going to return to writing full-length novels(3k-6k words per chapter), and yeah! That's it for me. If you want to contact me, you can do so, by sending a msg on Entz#6577(discord) or through my MAL or Twitter! Anyways, you all have been great, and may glory be with you!!!

Yours Sincerely,

Mohammed Zawia.
