Half-elf description #Fantasy #Fiction #Advice

I’ve looked through the different works and various forms of elves and what their half-breed children are like. Half Breeds in some stories look like their human parent, almost completely and I’ll explain why below… In other stories, they are mixed, though in most, they have slightly pointed ears, but otherwise look like humans. So far, there is one consistency; elven genes are recessive … Read More Half-elf description #Fantasy #Fiction #Advice

Author Advice Pt. 2

Many will say to write alone in complete silence. I would say definitely alone so that you’re not distracted, but complete silence? Try that and then turn on some music that you absolutely love, something well orchestrated like either classical or Epic Metal, or something like that. When you hit a creative wall or can’t choose the correct words, stop for a moment. Flick … Read More Author Advice Pt. 2

Avantasia Runaway Train:   I’ve been dying to post another Avantasia song. I love this musical collaboration. Each CD is a story written by Edguy’s lead, Tobias Sammet… the Mozart of Modern Metal (Sorry, it’s true). The song is a rollercoaster ride. sad and reflective to upbeat and fast back to reflective. When to listen: This is a brainstorming song. Listen to it before writing … Read More From My Writing Playlist

Today I’m going to work with Romance. This is off my gateway metal album:   Okay, more of a tragic romantic song, but one none the less. I usually listen to this one when it’s a romance that I know is going to end in death. I don’t know why. It’s a sweet song, but has a sad element to it. Readers, Do you … Read More From My Writing Playlist

For reasons I can’t begin to understand, Metalite replaced their original singer. I’m not going to lie, I liked her better. She seemed to have a much better range, but I am willing to give this new face a chance. So far, she’s been okay. When to listen: This is a fight song, likely first confrontation between the hero and villain. I don’t know if … Read More My Writing Playlist. #Music #Metal #Writing

I’m sorry, I miss the 80s. Growing up in the late 80s and watching the slow decline into the early 90s was really amongst the greatest time to be a kid. Nintendo NES was everywhere, Sega Masters was where it wasn’t. Free range parenting was a thing, the internet was barely a dream in the eyes of computer engineers, people actually went out and … Read More My Writing Playlist. #Music #Writing #Advice

  Nothing about this isn’t absolutely epic. This was a video I discovered online long ago and was instantly hooked. I’ve since seen them live in concert and admit to being a huge fan. How do I describe their music? Slipknot if they hired Rihanna as their lead singer. When to listen to this song? Climax buildup, or perhaps during the final battle! Readers, … Read More My Writing Playlist. #Music #Metal #Writing
