The Legend of Eugene

Young Adult Fantasy | #TheLegendOfEugene #AprilMackWIP

He’s their Chosen One, but it wasn’t his choice.

After being snatched to an alternate world and forced to become their hero, all Eugene Tanaka wants is to be a normal teen again. He made it home and thought it was over. Turns out his actions as hero had unintended but serious consequences. Will he go back to save the people he resents from his mistakes? This could be his chance to cut the link between their worlds and spare future “chosen ones,” but then he may not see home again.

look when i worked in public libraries i dealt with people having schizophrenic episodes, i dealt with people yelling directly into my face, i got cussed at by people young enough to be my children, and none of those people are dead because of me

I’m always afraid to admit this publicly because I’m white, but I struggle with this too. I grew up in Japan. I spoke Japanese before I spoke English. I’ve lived more years in Japan than anywhere else. But I’m afraid to write Japanese characters because I’m not Japanese enough.

Last night I tearfully shared with my mom that sometimes I don't feel Korean enough to write about Korea. I'll never be able to write Korean historicals like a "real Korean."

Then my mom told me:

People seem to think creativity is a dog that will come to you when you call it when really it’s a cat who ignores you all day, then wakes you by pushing your book off a mantle at night

How do you find time for #writing? I save this old trick from the #mom handbook for when I’m desperate because it always works. 😁 #writer #problems
