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

Off My Writing Playlist #Music #Metal #Writing

No Junjou Na Kanjou… let me come right out now and say this… I don’t speak Japanese. I never have. I tried to… but foreign languages are not my strong suit. I successfully learned Latin, and still botch it up on a regular basis when trying to speak it. Then what are you doing listening to this? Do you have to understand everything in … Read More Off My Writing Playlist #Music #Metal #Writing

I highly recommend looking into them and placing a pre-order if you like what you hear! This guys are literally brand new and I really want to … Read More SOON TO BE… From My Writing Playlist

The Root of My Inspiration

Everyone has a first. Everyone has some band, song, or performer that first got them into what they listen to now. For me, my entry into the type of music I listen to started way back when the genre was in it’s infancy. In fact, this person isn’t technically part of that genre at all, but his music is so close that he served … Read More The Root of My Inspiration

Review of Inspiration

So… The Endless Forms Most Beautiful… I usually don’t do reviews… unless something really annoys me and I need to vent, but this album left me a little vexed. I love Nightwish. They’ve been around forever, they put on an AMAZING show, and they have a huge body of work that includes serious music as well as lighthearted stuff. ‘Dark Chest of Wonders’ is … Read More Review of Inspiration

Free Exchange of Ideas…

Can I just ask… what the heck happened? When I first published my work, I got a lot of comments from readers, both positive and negative. Divinity in particular got positive and negative comments from die-hard Christians and atheists, and I don’t understand the negativity. I certainly can’t speak for the rest of the world, so if it’s different outside of the U.S. PLEASE … Read More Free Exchange of Ideas…

Magnifica: The Lost Sequel Pt. 4

IV   Tom kept himself in seclusion during the next few days. He went to class as much as he needed to in order to get by, but other than that, he barely came out of his room. Both Greggor and Jayme came by to see him often, but he almost never opened the door. He slowly became oblivious to the world around him. … Read More Magnifica: The Lost Sequel Pt. 4

Personal bias, dislike, and hatred.

I admittedly was a little hesitant to address this one because of the weight and political biases that go with it. So let me preface by saying that I don’t care who’s a republican or a democrat, man or woman, black, white, asian, etc. If you enjoy reading, you’re all right by me. In Magnifica, Lia’na is often abused for being an elf. Both … Read More Personal bias, dislike, and hatred.
