Writing Wednesday: Pinspiration

Theme: A Sorcerer's Fight
Note: I'm using this week's Pinspiration for brainstorming for my current WIP. This is for the back-story of my two antagonists.

Idea for an Negrekian village.
Setting: Negrekian Village

Lady in Shrouds (by Emile Bremmer)
Possibly the original sorceress.

Brother & sister photo. Same pic every year. This almost made me cry.
This top image reminds me of the two new sorcerers, siblings Casimir and Nika

If they were younger (guy early teens and girl a few years younger) this would be Casimir and Nika in the aftermath of the sorcerer's destruction.

An older Nika as a sorceress

Possibly an older Casimir as a sorcerer

Why are the people in the background just standing there? Hmm. . .
The fight has begun.

knight medieval battle - Multiple, sadly, only different settings.
Shortly before the sorcerer arrived (change the setting to forest/meadow/mountains)

The Beauty of Revelation

I love that moment when you're almost asleep, and you suddenly understand something.
Whatever you've been trying to figure out for the last few weeks just 'clicks'.
You're mind just puts together the things that you've been reading, and connects the dots.

This weekend I decided to go through my email and read the posts that I've been 'setting aside' from This Page Intentionally Left Blank.
One of them was on back story.

For weeks I've been struggling about possibly showing the reasons why my two villains are villains in my current WIP.

Today my brain made a collision.
Err, connection.

I know why.
I don't have to show why until later.

So Nika has a great distrust of men.
Except she trusts her brother.
I don't have to TELL why, just show that she does.

Casimir has a great hatred for the royal family.
Except he also hates hurting women, especially if they're younger.
I don't have to TELL why, just show that he does.

Needless to say, this is very, very, very helpful.
Back story doesn't have to be shown right away.
But that isn't always obvious, or else I wouldn't have had this revelation happen to me.
I hope this helps ya'll in some way!

Keep on Writing!

God Bless,

Knowing the Voices

I'm a writer. 

So it only makes sense that I talk back to the voices in my head, and they talk back to me.
Something that I've come to realize these last few days as characters come and go in my mind, is their personalities.

They have personalities.

Some of them are up beat and mischievous *cough*Ieoie*cough*.
Others are. . .

Well, that brings me to my current mystery.
Understanding the main character of my current WIP, Darina.
You see, I've come to know her best from writing a quick denouement scene. 
I don't know her from the beginning of the story.
I know her from the end.
When I start going backwards, it's like she shuts up and disappears. . .

I've been trying to get into her head and work backwards, but that isn't working very well.
At least not with the amount of time I have on my hands to work on my writing.
I might start up the Character Monday's again, if just to get her to talk a bit. . .

Or I could start interrogating Jedrek. 
I haven't done much with him yet.
Or Elettra. . .
Oddly enough, I've come to know my villains best for this story, siblings Casimir and Nica Sileny.
The last few stories I've worked on I didn't know my villains very much.
So that's happy.

This isn't a very pointed post other than what's going on with my writing. . .
Hopefully I can post something better later!

Keep on Writing!

God Bless

Greetings, Strange Folk.

My name is Horologium Draco, known to friends as Rolo. 

I am the little known pet dragon/muse that sits on Joy's desk. I have decided to step out of my normal boundaries of staying still, and enter this. . . Fascinatingly miniscule/gigantic world of Bytes. 

I hope to give advice some time, or else just leave comments on a certain someone's. . .  Current errors. 

I cannot say how excited I am about meeting you. Then again, I might as well put it as talking to you. 

Stretch your wings Friends! They get rusty when not used.

Shadow Wings: A Late Night Update

I have done it.


And yes, it is better.
800 words longer.
The characters are more human.
Yes, it is better.

When shall I share it?
Hopefully by next weekend! 

Don't worry, I'll share it sometime soon!

The Lord is good!
ALL the time!

Keep on Writing!

Gypsy Gift

My latest story I'm working on outlining in six words:

I wasn't going to; I did.

That about sums it up.
Hopefully I can post more later!

Keep on Writing!
