Dec 26, 2013 Happy Christmas, and Happy New Year, everyone. I thought I'd post a further update as to what's been going on with some of my works as of late. Those of you following "The Wizard, the Thief, the Captain, and the Cube" (WTCC for short) should note that, likely come the second week of January, it will be removed from the site. Beginning New Year's Day, January 1, I will begin posting "The Chronicles of Valicadia I: The Orb of Magnus", which will replace WTCC. As of today, the story is finished, and following through with a personal rule I adopted back in October, only now am I ready to start posting. As to how often I post chapters, that's wait and see, though likely I'll keep to posts every few days. Again, though, the important thing to note is, it's done. So, no hiatus/abandonment, or other nonsense. And of course, also note that, it's done, so there won't be any drastic changes to the plot or other such nonsense.

So, the story will not be completed in its current form. Instead, look for a new story to take its place, likely in the new year, if not sooner. It will be a rewrite, keeping a large portion of the plot line and so on, but dropping the Avengers completely. Titled "Harry Potter and the Orb of Magnus", it will bind Harry's world a little tightly to the Elder Scrolls universe--a powerful magical artefact from Skyrim plays a large part in the Commonwealth, rather than the Tesseract. And... Harry will have a VERY unique way of dealing with Tom Riddle... something the Dark Lord will never see coming!
"Far Cry from Skyrim" is unofficially on hiatus. I don't know if I'll get around to finishing it or not *Sigh* but it's one of those things where I've lost inspiration. Apologies.
Which leads me to a further decision, in that I won't be posting stuff that isn't completed (or nearly completed). I've written a large part of Orb of Magnus, and have been very much tempted to begin posting, but things do keep changing, and in fact, an event I've written recently has made a major change to the beginning of the story. So, rather than me telling everyone, 'you need to reread the opening', or, 'changes were made to chapter 5', or trying to explain some bit late in the story to make it make sense... it's just better to hold off posting until it's done (or nearly done).
I hate the 'please introduce yourself' mantle, but I guess that's how we get to know each other, right? So, this is a little about me.
I've been writing my own material now since about grade eight, although I've never published anything. It would be the ultimate dream to actually be published, even if it never went as far as say, Clive Cussler, or J.K. Rowling (two of my favourite authors). Just the same, it is a true art to be able to create a world, then draw your audience into it, and have them screaming for more.
So what kind of material do I like? Take a look at the two authors I mentioned in the paragraph above. Very different worlds, hmmm? As a kid, I loved Roald Dahl. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (btw, I thought Johnny Depp made a wonderful Willy Wonka); James and the Giant Peach; Danny, Champion of the World. All wonderful books. Another I liked was a younger author, Gordon Korman (sp?). His works may not be available outside of Canada. Look up a title "This Can't be Happening at McDonald Hall!".
Reading of course, eventually inspired my own creations. I used to lay in bed at night, visualizing my own worlds, if you will. Not dragons and magic so much at that point, but just, creating my own universe, scenarios, and so on. Sometimes I would dream those ideas, but it never occurred to me I should start writing things down until grade eight, as mentioned above.
I don't remember too much about my early pieces, although I wish I still had them, just to refer back and see how far I have come, how much I have developed my skill. That's for another day, however. This, is here and now.
So, there you have it. That is me, I'm glad to have become part of the community.
