Well I know it's been a while since last I've posted. For those of you who are following the first chapter contest, there is a new entry on the page titled "The Song of Leira". I've read the first part of it and so far it's really good! So go and check that out. There is still time to get your chapters in before the deadline of Oct 25th. The deadline's coming fast though, so let's not wait too long! And please feel free to post about it on your blog: let's spread the word! The more people know about this contest, the more fun it will be! :D
And... Stop the Presses! What is this? There's a new prize on the line! Yes, that's right... there will now be three winning slots to fill! The prize I'm adding to the list is a copy of "Watership Down". If you haven't read it yet, you really should. The book has become (in my own oppinion) quite a classic in anamalistic fantasy (think a mixture of Brian Jaques and Tolkien.) All the more reason to enter the contest! But please don't let this oppertunity slip by... polish up those first chapters and send them to me. Let's show the world what we're made of... or (ahem) what our worlds are made of. :D
And on that note, I know I haven't been posting in a while (mostly due to the dreaded homework of a college student) but I'm hoping to make up for some lost time within the next few days. So be on the look out for book reviews (and perhaps even a movie review) along with the second entry to my "Elements of Story" series. (hopefully... I'm still working on that part. )
And on a completely different note entirely, me and some friends at school have started throwing together a fanfiction for Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew" and I'm considering posting bits and pieces of it for review.
Well, that's all the exciting news for now. Hope to recieve some really awesome first chapters in the near future. :D
