Various Updates:

April 7th, 2008: Well, I'm putting The Heart of Six (Different) Worlds on hiatus, but I've started up a new novel, Nine Times Lost. I'll be working on both of them at once, kind of, so it's not like I'm NOT writing, I'm just taking a break from Simon's various adventures. :)

April 8th, 2008: Chapter Eleven of The Heart of Six (Different) Worlds.

April 27th, 2008: Hm, it's been a while. Anyway, I've kind of put BOTH of those stories on hold for stress issues, but I'm working on a weekend project here. It's only gonna be 10,000 words or so, if even. Give it a read. :3

June 8th, 2008: Well, it's been a really long time, hasn't it? I've been going through a lot lately, and so my writing in general has been on hiatus. I know. It's annoying. I've given up fantasy for the time being, and right now I am working on realistic fiction. I want to focus on human emotion, and I've realized that the bizarre world of fantasy has taken away from that. Anyway, I hope that you work with me here, folks. I've posted my newest story, Held Up, and I hope that it goes somewhere. It'll be hard, I know, because it's been a while, but I think it holds a lot of promise because of what I've learned over the years. Anyway, I love all of you! :D

June 11th, 2008: We currently have 5 chapters of Held Up posted, and there is sure to be more to come. My current pace is that of one chapter everyday, and I'll probably be able to keep that up, considering this is my last week of school. I have summer school, but that's nothing, no? Anyway, I hope you guys stick with this one, 'cause I'm having a lot of fun with it.

June 15th, 2008: All right. We've got 10 chapters up and running, now. Isn't that spiffy? Isn't that grand? I'd love to hear from you guys on this one, because I'm really feeling good about it. Anyway, just thought I would let that be known. xD

June 21st, 2008: I completed Held Up. Yeah, recognize that it only took me 15 days to do that. xD

Various Information About Meself:

I tend to dislike writers and artists, though I do fall under both of those categories. I don't like to talk about writing strategies, and I don't like to compare artwork. I work in both mediums for the opportunity to entertain people, not to express myself. I figure that my personality is plenty strong enough for expression, and so I don't need to rely on my work or my appearance to do that. I tend to be the fair police, and I strive to one day never be considered a hypocrite. I have obnoxiously high morals and standards, and I tend to get on people's nerves. That's just me. I put my heart into my writing and into my art, and so you will never hear the excuse, "Well, I rushed it," or, "This is just a rough draft." I will, however, say that I am always improving, and that must be taken into consideration. I love grammar in any form, and so I hope that shines through my work.

How To Prevent Prejudgment of Your Story reviews
Just another one of my essays, though this is more of a writing guide than anything. It's about how to start a story without running into overdone or unwanted elements.

Thread of a Different Sort reviews
Simon was sent away to learn how to steal magic, since he couldn't use it normally otherwise, but he fights that misguided ideology and ends up on a misadventure including several different characters and several different places, even worlds.

A Heroless Tale reviews
February through June of 2007. This is older, but it is the story of Thomas and Andrea, commonly called Andy, and their adventure through a changing world and into one of espionage and secrecy. It's very much a character story, since both are distinct.

Of His Darkness reviews
The world nearly ends when two worlds collide, and a magical world contaminates our normal world. This story deals with a lot of issues, from the manipulation of religion to the massive hysteria that can be spawned by one moment of chaos.

Ill reviews
Two children try their best to cope with their beastly mother. A lesson on the boundaries of perfection and social persecution. I just fixed the ending, which I have been told was too abrupt.
