When Randomness out...

If I commented on your blog lately you will notice that I have been putting down random blurbs under my blogger name stating that I am either doing a handstand, smacking my head on the ground or doing something else in hopes to get ideas for my book. So, instead of banging myself up I decided to let randomness taking me into the boxing ring and hopefully whack me around until I have some ideas. 

Ok, now I am just going to write out some random stuff including a bit of a poem (about dragons) an interview of one of my characters and what ever else that is honoring to God that comes in between A-Z on my writers list. I will begin with a poem and hopefully it will help bring some ideas to mind for my book....

Deep within the star light night,
Their eyes a glow with ere a fire;
Three Dragons chant for one to come
And fill the void of stones now eight. 

The one will come, but not in peace,
For with a word from masters dark;
Will tell of plans made from deceit
And rule with vengeance for the time. 

War will wage and blood will spill
And fate will seal all masters now. 
The wind will fail, the skies will fall
And rain will cease, the ground will fault. 

All in Eramthena and Earth
Will feel the hate begin to grow, 
As one strong power comes to rest 
Above the others now below. 

The Masters of the elements four
Have been undone and been remade. 
To plan the final victor war
And bring to earth the One whom made. 

Ok, there is the poem, it is a bit scattered but I still think it is ok. Next is a small interview with my main character Korr, who currently is with his new found brother Tremoth.  

SOTK: I would like you all to warmly welcome my favorite character from my book "Into the Mystic Lands" Korr Wailbern from the eastern realms of Eramthena. *Clap, clap, clap,clap,clap* *Korr enters stage and apparently is ticked off about something*

Korr: Ah, there you are my fine friend. *Walks up behind the proud SOTK and whispers something into his ear*

SOTK: *Whispers back the shouts aloud* Korr just asked me if it would be possible to do a bit of an excerpt of which he is seen in, he wants to point out a few things for the audience. 

Korr: Which one should we look into? 

SOTK: How about the scene that takes place within Deravyr. You know when Yelworaeed told you to...
Korr: Um, how about we don't talk about that one, it is...a bit embarrassing...for me. *Korr states with a visible blush as he turns toward audience*

SOTK: Ok, then how about your small discussion with Yelworaeed in the old hut...

Korr: *Bits lip in obvious disagreement* Not that one either. 

SOTK: *Now frustrated blurts out...* The what about when you first met Tremoth *Lightens up a bit*. 

Korr: WHAT? Are you kidding, that would embarrass the daylights out of me!

SOTK: My point *chuckles and turns to audience* Ok, we will take a small section out of...

Korr: Please, not that one. Take the one in Deravyr, that one is better than THIS one. 

SOTK: Ok, then we will begin....

“Just a few more steps to the door” Korr prodded himself “You can do this, you were trained to for this type of work! Now all I have to d...” an extremely loud creak sounded from beneath his foot. “Darn be this...” another loud crack. “Calm yourself Korr, calm yourself!” Now he was within but a step from the door but something told him that he shouldn’t continue forward. Quickly he backed up with unceasing creaks groans and cracks following his ill timed steps. Suddenly there was a voice in his head:
“And what do you think you are afraid of?” It was Korr’s guardian dragon.....

(There is a bit of writing in between these two paragraphs, but I can't give it all to you. I have to build the excitement) 

“Listen, only you can see me so why don't you ask me to complete your simple task for you?” the dragon voiced her question.
“Well could you, I suppose I am a bit overweight for those boards.” Korr admitted sheepishly.
“Of course, that is what I am here for.” With that she began to stretch her wings which were about the size of Korr’s forearm from tip to tip.
“Oh, and would you be kind enough to look for a small ointment for blisters and cuts, I am quite soar from the trek I made.”
“Ok, but you missed one potion that you should have.”
“I did?” Korr questioned.
“Yeah, the diet elixir!” With that she was off and left a dumbfounded knight behind in her breezy wake. 

Korr: Well, it is better now that it is out. 

SOTK: Yes, it is. Now, do you want to talk about it a bit?

Korr: Sure, that is why I am here, isn't it? 

SOTK: Ok. First of all what did you think about your guardian, Yelw?

Korr: Well, I am not sure, she is a bit annoying *stops as though being scolded by another person the mutters apologies* She is not annoying, just a bit pesky! *grabs invisible object on shoulder and shoves into long coat*

SOTK: OK...Lets get on. Now, what do you think about the name of the town and the events that unroll there? *Glances to the struggling Korr*

Korr: Um...right *holds coat together tightly as though to not allow something to escape* 

SOTK: Korr, are you listening to me?

Korr: Yeah, I am just...*puts hands over ears* STOP, Yelw, you cant do that. Stop shouting!

SOTK: Korr, please try to focus on the interview *looks to crowds and whisper shouts* Looks like his guardian is getting mad. 

Korr: Um, can I be dismissed for a second *grabs invisible object* A minuet *falls out of chair and grunts in obvious pressure* How about we...*begins to be dragged off stage* Help...Help *screams with a very girlish voice*

SOTK: *Stands up and looks and Korr being dragged off stage* Well there goes my main character. *Turns back to crowd and sighs* Well, he won't be in the next few scenes in my book, he will be in the Hospital. *Walks off stage after the almost inaudibly shouting Korr*

Ok, there you have it. That was all I could think of and I hope you enjoyed. Yes, I said I would give you something else, but unfortunately it is getting too late to write anymore and my eyes are beginning to dry up. So, with a tired hand I finish this long blog post saying that I have finally come up with a few new ideas for my book and will hopefully be writing them down after school.

Poetry In All its Random Wonder

Random, you ask? Yes, random poetry is what I am writing in this post so take a seat, which you hopefully are already, and prepare for some off the top of the brain poetry. (FYI I am not pulling a Lewis Carol :)

Ere Dragons rest on streets of gold,
In all their splendor with wings held nigh;
With golden sun to show their beauty
And winds a strong to for them to fly.

I know not why I stare at them,
With longing, dreadful, tear filled eyes;
But know I now they have the answers
Deep within their hearts of stone.

Will not one come with chosen keys,
To spread the lock and open wide;
Past a present and all near future
All from in their knowing eyes.

Has one the key and knows not now,
That though it hangs but by a thread;
In hopes are placed for ere the saving
Or lost in fate for ere the dead.

So there you go, a bit of on the spot poetry. I hope you enjoyed!

A sudden halt :(

Well, if you have been following me on Nanowrimo you will probably have noticed that I have not expanded my word count for at least a week. Unfortunately, because of schooling and receding thoughts for my book I have decided to take a bit of time off, but don't worry, it should be finished by the end of this year...still a bit of time left. Another thing that you may want to know is if I will be publishing this book and the answer is most likely. I plan to finish off four books then sell them with a month spread. So, I have not quit writing altogether I am just refreshing my writing thoughts and soon (hopefully) I will be back on the road speeding toward 50k.

30K and Advancing!

Again I do not fail to surprise myself with the work that I can complete in such a short ammount of time! Today I wrote for about four hours and have me just check...30,144 words. I cant believe it, there are only 19,856 words left to write and then...oh right, then comes the revision...Well, I wont ponder on that thought any more because I need my thoughts. Right now I feel like a cup of water that is being gulped down. Soon I will be empty of words to write, but nonetheless I will continue no matter how hard it may be...I hope.

Half Way Point!

Well, I have finally made it to the halfway point! I can not believe my own eyes, I look to the bottom of my word document and see the beautiful numbers staring back at me 26,183. It is such an uplifting thing to have something like this happen and I must admit that I have never felt better about writing. If you want to keep up with the progress in my book you can go to and you will see my work that I have completed. No, you will not see my book, only the synopsis and the word count along with stats of daily writing. Now, I must be off to party some more because I just cant believe I am here!

20k is here!

Wow, I cant actually believe that I am at 20k words! Since this is the first book that I have actually written I thought I would be quitting around...err...400 but I was wrong. Right now I could just about leap for joy fact I will one second *walks away from computer and leaps into the air shouting his excitement of reaching 20k*
Ok, now that that is done I will get back to the topic of my book. Even though I still have 29962 words left to write I am not yet discouraged...yet. I don't know if it is the fact that I just don't want to do my school or if it is the pressure that I am under to finish it but it sure has me on my toes for writing. Today (November 12) I wrote around 3138 words in all of my free time (which was about four hours). Anyway, I cant spend to much more time blabbing my mouth and brains out cauz I am going to need both of them (one for writing and the other for an excuse for not getting lot's of school done).

16,427 words!!!

I had left my book for quite a while as I had run out of thoughts to wright in it, but today I suddenly had the urge to pick it back up and write in it again. Of course when I start writing it is hard to stop me and thus an explanation of the work I have completed a word span of over 2000. So, while I listen to Skillet and write this post I am inwardly partying that there is only 33,573 words left to write...yeah it is a lot but still I am getting there but nonetheless I will still continue with my party!

An ode to randomness

Throughout the ages the word randomness has been defined and redefined but people can cant quite get the actual meaning of it. Of course we could just put this off and use the word flow'st to describe it, but it just wouldn't hit the spot completely as we want to know the deeper meaning. Below are a few of the common definitions that people have come up with.



Wikipedia's definition: "A lack of predictability"'s definition: "Lacking a definite plan"
The Free Dictionary's definition: "Having no specific pattern"'s definition: "Of or relating to an event in which all outcomes are equally likely"                                                                                                         
The Online Dictionary's definition: '"An inexplicable misfeature"
SOTK's definition: "Unpredictable facts being spoken without thinking"

So, now that you have heard some of the definitions of the term random, what do YOU think it means. I am not asking you to search it up in your browser, or look in that old dictionary on your shelf,  just your own un-altered opinion on the definition of the randomness.

A blog of interest

If you are a strong Christian and are dedicated in fasting a praying I would suggest that you visit Child of God's new blog CPR Ezra 8:32. Since Child of God is newer to the blogging world it would be extremely encouraging if you would visit her blog, follow and post a few comments on what she is writing. Remember, if you have any prayer requests and you want some outside help don't be afraid to voice them because as a group we can accomplish much through God!
