Day Eight – 30 Days of Headlines

Day eight of my 30 Day Challenge. When it rains, it pours, I swear! My sister and her baby are home (and well), I’ve gotten over another asthma attack, and I’m psyching myself up to get back on top of my writing before it becomes a ‘thing’ in my head. The best way to get over a roadblock is…go ahead and charge right through it! 🥊

Days Eight and Nine – A Weekend of Words

I didn’t take the day off from writing my words yesterday, merely from the daily update on most social media. Everyone needs a day or two every now and then to be offline, so I decided yesterday was mine.

I’m up and awake now though and ready to share the words with you all.

Day Eight

Day Eight of  was short and sweet. I wasn’t feeling all that great and had a day of winding down mostly.

Day 8

Day Eight

Day Nine

Today is Day Nine of and I woke up already planning my words. Apparently sleepy brain is enjoying itself because I had the scenes already planned out before I left the bed!

I’m really happy with how they’ve worked out today. Day eight…meh, I did it and that’s what matters, but I like day nine a lot!

Hope everyone has had a great weekend.

Day Three: 100 Days of Words Challenge

Day Three. I’m tired today. Someone’s car alarm decided to go off at around 3am just outside my bedroom window and it didn’t stop for a good couple of hours. Whoever it was that decided to not put in a cut off timer for that little fucker, I now officially hate you.

Despite it all I am still awake and writing. I think coffee number two is going to be called for before I start in on my big work, but the daily scenes have been accomplished; along with my 200 words and I’m still very much enjoying myself.

I’m looking to work on furthering Chapter 7 of One Ring today. I have my plot sorted into enough of a shape to guide my brain through what needs to happen and am looking forward to seeing what I come up with in between plot points. Questions shall be answered as well as asked, so hopefully a few people who were worrying about what had happened to certain individuals will find out!

Overall I’m pretty optimistic about the direction things are heading.

200 Words Weekly

This last week has been very productive. My multitude of self imposed 200 words sessions are finally paying off.

I managed a total of around 6k words last week and got my chapter finished. I’m very pleased with myself. I have the plans for the next one to hand and already on the go. I’m having far too much fun to be allowed. It’s at times like this that I’m thankful I’m not religious, guilt free pleasure is the best. Life is good. So, what was there to report from last week?

Illusions: Catacus’s Beginnings.

Illusions
Illusions is the story of Ventur, an illusionist born into an age that no longer believes in their existence. Keeping his secret will be essential.

 

“I wouldn’t bother if I were you. He does this for a living.” The two men looked up from their seats across the candle lit table. “The penitent Thief doesn’t suit you Lucas, unabashed gambler was always more your speed.”

“Diversity is the spice of life dear brother.” Lucas stood and held his arms wide to embrace the newcomer.

Illusions: Cóir’s Beginnings

Illusions
Illusions is the story of Ventur, an illusionist born into an age that no longer believes in their existence. Keeping his secret will be essential.

The Shepherd’s wife gave birth on the first day of the lambing, just as the witch said she would; and, like the witch foretold she gave birth to twins. The first had fair skin and striking green eyes the second was dark and its eyes were as cold and clear as ice. They knew at once the curse was real.

Without regret or hesitation the Sheppard took it outside and before it could utter its first cry saw to it that it would never harm the tribe.

It was only later, when the Shepherdess brought the child to her breast to feed did they realise their mistake. The choked off scream as its fangs pierced her skin was almost more than the Shepherd could bare. The witch had won after all.

Illusions: 15 year old Ventur meets Alcebiades.

Illusions
Illusions is the story of Ventur, an illusionist born into an age that no longer believes in their existence. Keeping his secret will be essential.

Ventur was feeling pissed off. He’d been feeling that way more often recently and that just seemed to piss him off even more. He felt like it was harder and harder to control himself and he was getting into more and more arguments with his friends because of it. Even Theo, who would usually sit calmly as Ventur paced and ranted about his troubles was starting to make pointed comments. Then there was Rheandra. She seemed to actively seek him out and wound him up on a daily basis. She would talk in her exasperated way about how magic is power and should be embraced for the good of all, about what he should be doing with his unique ‘gifts’ and about what she would do once she was free of this prison she was so tragically confined in.

Chapter Three

It had been a long ten years. After this was over Meladath swore she would never teach a single person anything ever again. How people did this job their entire lives she could not understand. She saw the other teachers in the corridors and they smiled at the children, they actually smiled. Did they put something in the water around here? The blood they served for meals wasn’t exactly the standard she was used to but then again, donor blood never was. It lacked the sweetness that accompanied a truly corrupt soul. So maybe they were drugging the water after all? She wouldn’t put it past the damned Headmistress.
