Help us populate a new world!

The Lands of Unitus website is up and running! Just take a moment to look at that beauty of a logo (I can’t take credit for it). I have a new story that I will be posting on Unitus as part of a fantasy collaboration. Episode 1 is nearly complete and almost ready for posting. […]

Unitus

The collaborative fantasy world I have mentioned during the past couple of weeks finally has a site! Be sure to check it out for great stories, unique creatures, and a variety of writing styles between myself and some wonderful writers. I will be writing for the place known as Sesho. The Lands of Unitus

Behold! Summaries of all current projects

Finally, all my current projects in one place. This content has been added as a page on the site, where it will be updated from time to time. For readers who are aware of FOTS, my primary project and the beating heart of this blog, here is a basic summary of the series. Next is […]

5 month blog-anniversary! & a summary of what’s happened / what’s next

When I made a post after my first month of blogging, I was congratulating my readers for being kind enough to follow my blog. At that point in time, I had under 20 followers. Yesterday, we just passed 140! These past few months of blogging alongside my primary writing project have been wonderful. It has […]

Project Tango

It is always healthy to maintain more than one writing project at a time. Project Tango is my side project that is still in its infancy. Well, it hasn’t really been born yet. It is little more than an idea and is far, far away from its first words. To be honest, I do not […]

Holy [expletive], I just brutally killed one of my characters!

So, um…yeah. All of the corners in my bedroom are occupied by furniture or something else, so where am I supposed to crawl into a ball and weep? Alright, let’s be serious here, killing off your characters is tough. Who but we, the authors, have a greater connection to our characters? It can be a […]

Progress Journal Entry 4: Chapters 16-20

Phew! That was the most difficult section, so far. I just finished chapter 20 a couple of days ago. I got hit by two different forces at the same time, which both made my writing per day less than I wanted. First off, all of these chapters were hard to write for different reasons. Two […]

A few blogging truths & strategies

Here is a list of a few things I have found out during my first 4 months of blogging: Truths No matter what we say, we all want some site traffic. “I’d be writing these things either way.” Not entirely true. My blog is about showcasing my own writer’s journey from start to finish. While […]

The Lieutenants: 2nd, General Victus

“Victus! Victus! Victus!” -Victory chants, Battles of Athos: 8th Engagement General is another title that has lasted through the ages, and it is usually a customary title for the High-King as his word has the final say. Victus, a weathered man in his forties, unofficially holds it, however. His charisma and proven strategic genius in […]

POLL!: Which POV character’s story are you most interested in reading about?

The introductions are done, and I have posted a short summary for each of my nine POV characters for FOTS. You can find them all listed here. Each summary is very short. With enough votes, it may help me see which of my characters are more interesting to readers. For those who like voting on […]

National Cultures of Pentia: Talon

Capital City: Talon Estimated total population: 2,948,718 Estimated military size (absolute maximum strength): 115,000 Typical appearance and social/cultural traits: Talonians have brown hair and brown eyes. The geography of the gigantic forests is a sort of land-within-a-land, secluding the people from the rest of the world. As a result, the culture of Talon is very different from other […]

POV: “Captain”

The Captain is one of the banished people, who now live on the south-east island of shame. It has been almost 500 years since the so-called Holy Ones were last seen on the mainland that the other nations now disrespectfully call Pentia. The name insinuates five peoples existence in the world, when in fact there […]

The next step for FOTS Fantasy

There is enough to talk about that I figure a full update is needed. 1: Post changes There are notable post changes. The early tentative schedule was Mon/Wed/Fri with random other things in between. I want to keep that going as best I can, while toning down the posts per week for the summer. Monday […]

100 Followers!

Wow, incredible! Thanks to everyone who has followed FOTS Fantasy since it began just over 3 months ago, back on March 4, 2013. There have already been visitors from 21 different countries. You guys are the best. Another special shout out to those who read each and every post, I hope I have been entertaining […]

The Lieutenants: 3rd, Mantus the Enduring

“Thank the Gods he is on our side!” –Rammos, 6th Lieutenant Mantus the Enduring he is named, for there was no ready traditional name available for his unique abilities. Enduring was chosen as it had the same style as the other titles in the Aquari armies, but everyone knows him as Mantus the Unbreakable. They […]

National Cultures of Pentia: Sola

Capital City: Sola Estimated total population: 2,883,692 Estimated military size (absolute maximum strength): 146,000 Typical appearance and social/cultural traits: The people of Sola have pitch-black hair and green eyes. They are fashion conscious, preferring to wear bright clothing and plenty of expensive jewellery. Part of this comes from Sola being the richest nation in the world, and […]

Progress Journal Entry 3: Chapters 11-15

Another milestone! Fifteen chapters out of the seventy-nine have been written for the first draft. In this batch, I only experienced minor setbacks due to a few job interviews I had this week. Fingers crossed for a call early next week. One of them was a great fit for me. Anyway, these latest chapters were […]

POV: “Academic”

The Academic lives in the great, shared, Holy City of Penta with her father, a Polarian councilman. For his young and bright, intelligent daughter, he has privately hired a prominent Kanari scholar to enhance her learning. It is a controversial move, as scholars are known to dabble with philosophical topics that extend far beyond the […]

Shocking Revelation! from an early (awful) map drawing

I found this map in my pictures folder a few days ago. I’m happy that I saved it because it was fun, even funny, to see how my original idea has changed over time. This is the very first map attempt I made. I drew it on my laptop using Paint. Something very weird happened […]

The Lieutenants: 4th, Pactus the Strong

“Word is someone brought the First to one knee this morning. Who was it?” –The Lieutenant Training Grounds, Islos So, we have come to the top four. These are great men amongst great men. Not great for the goodness of their personal intentions or from the morality of the outcomes they carve into history with […]
