Sparring with a ‘God’ (excerpt, part 3 of 3): Reflection

Part three. Here’s part 1 & part 2. This section of the chapter needs the most work for when I come back to it after the first draft is completed. Thanks for reading! Chapter 21 (first draft) Islos Part 3 of 3 (continued) Cirrus was resting in the shade of the ship’s sails, resting and watching as […]

Sparring with a ‘God’ (excerpt, part 2 of 3): Plenty more to learn

Part two! Here was part 1. Again, this is Cirrus (the Soldier POV), having just started his practice match with the Aquari 5th Lieutenant, Arturus Mariner. I’m hoping even though it is just the first draft, that I was able to give somewhat of a clear visualization of how the characters were moving. Thanks for reading! […]

“You were born here. You’ll die here.”

Over the weekend, I wrote a small passage to start my sci-fi book, called To Cross the Water, what I’m calling Project Tango on this site. It’s something I’m going to chip away at occasionally. I see it as being fairly short, around 50-70k words. Even though it has relatively no outline compared to FotS – […]

Sparring with a ‘God’: First look at Cirrus (excerpt, part 1 of 3)

Here is a new, long-awaited excerpt from FotS: Book 1. Here we have Cirrus (the Soldier POV). He is taking a ship, on his way to his ascension ceremony with a legend as escort, Arturus Mariner. Overall, it is an action-packed chapter. Again, this is from the original draft. I only read through it once […]

First look at Rees (short excerpt)

This is another short excerpt, this time showing the beginning of the story of the Archer POV, Rees. This is taken from chapter 7 of book one, and it is in first draft form (i.e. limited figurative language and only basic descriptions). It is far from great but I just want to show a little […]

The Lieutenants: 6th, Rammos the Agile

“Careful, friend. I have seen him toy with a man twice his size” –The Lieutenant Training Grounds, Islos Rammos is all about speed. “The Agile” name is only given to Aquari soldiers with the most exceptional quickness. He is relatively young amongst the Eleven, having just turned thirty. The true top speed he is capable […]

The Lieutenants: 8th, Blaccus

“I pity the poor soul who confronts Blaccus, completely unaware of what he faces.” -High-King Tarrus When ordinary and greatness clash, you end up with something like this man. Very friendly with the regular soldiers, Blaccus has the personality of a common man. He prefers a rag-tag look instead of the richly adorned, noble attire […]
