The Adventures of Walrus Island:

Hey everyone! I just wanted to make a quick note that an exciting time has come in my life and it falls under three main points as you can see below.

 1. This is the 100'th post on TCWH!!! WOOOT.

 2. It appears that finals are almost completed for school!!!!

 3. I just finished my third book...I never mentioned it before because I haven't been on here for over a year, or two. It, as you may have been able to derive from the title of this post, is called the "Adventures of Walrus Island" and is based on the plot which you can read about right now...

 ~Based in a modern tale an ordinary North Detroit family makes plans for a family vacation in the Atlantic ocean to the deserted and completely uninhabited Walrus island. Their trip is wonderful,filled with family entertainment and fun until a stowaway with a mysterious secret is found aboard their boat. When Duncan Bennett finds her, she tells about treasures that lay hidden near the island and a disturbing family issue that is closely knit with the them. From that point Duncan is faced with the option to tell his parents about the danger they would be facing, or to solve the issue by himself. He choses the latter and is consequently seeing new dangers unfold before his eyes. Modern day pirates, gold mines, and sunken ships are only part of the adventure that they embark upon, but even these are considered small compared to their race to leave the island with their lives.

 Alrighty, so that's a little bit of a teaser as to what the book is about and below are a few more details that the serious writers might consider interesting:


  •  70,211 Words 
  •  146 pages (Cambria Body 11)
  •  37 Chapters 


 So yeah, that's the specs as to how its been going. I think it took me like...33 hours to complete which spanned since Sept 2011 or somewhere there abouts. I have high hopes to have the book published one day as one of my school teachers has connections for matters like that, so perhaps in the future you might be able to find it on the shelf in some random bookstore. :P

 Anyway's, have a great day everyone and may your keyboards/pens/typewriters/etc always be busy in a book (...which reminds me I had better get to editing...)!

The first glitch...

Well, it's the fifth day of NaNoWriMo and I am finally coming to some trouble with my book. I can't directly say that the writers block is setting in as I am still able to write, but rather the ideas are starting to thin out. Anyway last night I came up with an awesome solution for my problem. For the first time in my entire writing history I have finally made a writing outline...ok, now that the terrible secret is out I suppose it will be easier to continue. So anyway I decided that because I couldn't get any more thoughts out of my thick skull I would get a piece of paper, a pen and some music and just sit down for a while and considers what I should do. Well, after sitting for about two minuets the thoughts started flowing in like crazy and I had a hard time putting them all down on paper but the best thing is, I not only have ideas about what this book will contain, but my third book is already planned and ready to go as soon as I get the time to start writing. Well that really encouraged me and I must admit that a little bit of brain storming can really get you a long ways and present some great work for your book.


Want the Image? 

So, now that I have passed one problem I suppose it will be smooth sailing the rest of the way, or so I hope. Now all that is left is to get the pen to the page (in a sort of technological way) and get to the word count for today.

Happy Writing

5 things you will never hear a writer say

O.o *looks above to title* really? Well I surprised myself by writing about this, but whatever, I need to write a post so why not a random topic? Anyway, here are five statements that you will never hear a true writer say....

1. I absolutely hate books! Get them out of my life and give me an honest to goodness TV show!

2. Keyboards are meant for Facebook, Twitter, MSN, Skype and school assignments. Nothing more then that. 

3. Who would want to waste their time writing thousands of words when it is just going to be shoved into the back corner of your memory card never to be looked at again?

4. Writing is for people who are antisocial.

5. Books? The only thing I know that they are good for is starting a fire.


Ah, ok, so if you directly refute all of the above then you are a writer, if you said no to four of the above you are semi-writer, if you crossed out three of the above then you don't really have an opinion, but if you only detected two faulty statements you are a semi-hater, and if you said yes to them all then...WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON THIS BLOG?????? XD Ok, enough of that. :P
Anyway it's the fourth day for NaNoWriMo and I wish you all the best on getting to the six-thousand word count. :)

Happy Writing

Day 3...finished

Well, it's the end of day three for NaNoWriMo and I must admit that I am loving every second of my book. I started it up yesterday and just hit 5k today, as you can see through the multiple status bars across my blog :). Anyway, usually by this time I would be having a brain fart, but no, it is actually working, I have a thousand thoughts and they are all going down nicely onto paper at last. The master plan is being reveled, or so I believe in my opinion, and the characters are building up a lot of important questions which were never answered by the first book and most importantly I have had a chance to incorporate my assassin into the outline.

I am totally thrilled that everything is going smoothly and I hope that it won't end too soon because, as I said above I am absolutely loving every second of the "finger on keyboard" moments. If only I could type faster...XD. Anyway here is a poem that I am thinking of adding into my book in the near future so sit back, relax, and enjoy...*shouts into background* "can someone pass me the popcorn?" ...well it isn't that long, but whatever.

Stars are dim in evenings bright
While blood will spill in shadows light
The grieving hearts will tear and break
And walls will crumble for their sake.

When trumpet blows near noonday's tide
Avast the tears and calloused pride
The one shall come, be raised a'high
And peace the worlds banner fly.

Anyway, it's not much but I intend to put it to good use, so dong be surprised if you see it being thrown into one one of the excerpts from ITML: The Easter Sea Revolt. Alright g'day to yall and remember...HAPPY WRITING!!!!

Into the Mystic Lands: The Eastern Sea Revolt

Yowsers yall'! Well, it's that time again, it's time for NANOWRIMO!!!!! Tha'ts right. I am a bit late getting this post up but I am sure you are all aware that it started at the beginning of November so no problem there. Anyway, I started up the second book in the series of ITML and it is called The Easter Sea Revolt where there are a few new characters, some old ones, and plenty of action. Anyway, I started it up yesterday and am currently at 2019 words and just finished by second chapter. So, all's going well and I hope it is the same for yourself. If you want to check out more of my book you can find me on NaNoWriMo under Son of the King. Have a great day and happy writing!
