As I say goodbye to 2013 and welcome whatever 2014 will bring, I have such a feeling of satisfaction. I finally put together a novel and released it to the world. In fact, I released two novels and three short stories! For someone who does not write a novel every week, that is a big accomplishment. I sometimes catch myself shaking my head and wondering why it took eight years to accomplish this goal.
Beyond the Wildlands
An elf of the Wildlands recounts his adventures in this fantasy short story.
Jhinn, an elf from the wooded area known as the Wildlands, has lived an adventurous life. A master with a bow, he has joined forces with a human army to rid the forest of savage trolls. During training, he falls in love with a female warrior named Aurelle who has taken up her axe in defense of their homeland. After the battle, the pair journey together to begin new lives, though Jhinn prefers a life of crime.
The time to start writing is now. You’ve talked about it for years, but you never seem to find the time to actually do it. The ideas in your mind have been churning, but you just can’t seem to get them onto paper.
