A Warrior’s Magic Reworking Blurb

“Your skin looks beautiful again.” Jameson wore his robes. Emelia assumed he was blushing, but his hood was covering his face. She could see his undershirt hanging out of the side of her knapsack on his back.

She smiled. “It feels much better. Thank you, Jameson.”

“May I question why you’re running from the Palace, Emelia?” He adjusted the hood, his hands rough looking and cracked.

Emelia gave in and told him. It’s not like he could go anywhere, he’s sworn his life to her.

“But, you would make a fine queen.”

“Flattery will not buy you your freedom, Jameson.” She shoved him with side the hood, thus causing it to start to drift back off his face.

Emelia looked back at him as she walked. He had already repositioned it over his forehead, leaving half his face in darkness. “Chides will not make it less true.”

She looked forward once more. “That might be so. But what kind of a princess am I that I haven’t seen the world outside my father’s gates?” Her eyes absorbed the world around her.

Jameson remained silent.

She laughed. “See, even you see that it’s odd.

[He mumbled an incantation, a red glow surfaced out of the dirt path leading ahead of them. He looked at her. “Hungry?”]

He mumbled an incantation, a red glow surfaced out of the path ahead of them. He looked at her as rooted vegetables sprang out of the ground and into the small pack at his hip. “Hungry?”

Emelia smiled.

This is part of the cluster f*** of stories and plot bunnies that I had seven to eight years ago. They are creeping up on me again, and thus why I am again at this blog.

Tell me what you think.

My writing life: Backstory

I’ve been writing since before sixth grade. The exact time and place is beyond my recollection, or at least just my caring. That’s really not my forte. I don’t really see the need to know for that. It’s not like what I knew back then will help or harm me now as I become more and more serious about being serious about writing.

I can tell you when that happened. I can remember when and where I was too. But that’s really not important either in the here and now of my present situation.

What does matter is the pivotal point between that time and now that I was changed from a naïve amateur who just sat down to write when the notion to write hit me without a plan or a method or a theme or a … anything… into a serious writer. It wasn’t a specific day.

It was when I landed on a website. Two actually. Wait make that three.

1.) Storyfix.com (Larry Brooks) – Writing/Story Structure Guru
2.) CreativePenn.com (Joanna Penn; AKA J. F. Penn) – Accomplished Self-published Author & Writing Podcaster
3.) MarieForleo.com – A rich, happy and hot multi-passionate Entrepreneur who coaches women to make it in Online Businesses.

These three people are huge in my brain right now. They might not even know it, but they might know it. Whatever, they are awesome. If you need something to boost your writing moral or cure you temporarily of your fear of success, or your fear of failure (whichever, both are scary to some extent, no?)… Click above to be launched into some kind of wonderful epiphany for your life, writing, business, etc. Do it…

Each one of their sites has TONS of free, valuable content! They are real people dedicated to help you do something. And they give away a lot of their know-how for free… Did I mention it’s free!? They also have amazing books (that I own and have read most of them or reading them now) on said awesome content that actually teaches you everything you need to know about it … delving deep and thoroughly into their most passionate topics. GET IT! READ IT! DO IT!

A wise person doesn’t just talk about it, they act about it.

Tell me what you’re going to do below! NOW! Then, go do it. If you need it, I’ll point (link or poke or kick, maybe) you in the right direction…
