SPARTA, GREECE, 8:03 AM
Kratos sat once again on his throne, once again bitter, once again brooding over revenge, a practice that would obtain him nothing, but was his by nature. His concentration on his anger was only slightly broken by the entrance of Tai Lung, whom he had began to come to see as no less than his equal, in war and in will.
"Most Spartans ask permission to enter before making their presence known," said Kratos, barely paying him mind and only saying this rather jokingly.
"I'm no Spartan," responded the leopard.
"I need to ask two things from you."
"What is it?"
"How do we intend to defeat the Olympians? This was only a wave of their finger we faced three days ago."
"I know others who the Olympians have wronged. If we find them, we will turn Zeus' greatest mistake against him."
Tai Lung raised an eyebrow.
"His own children. Other demigods."
Tai Lung grinned. The plan that Kratos was devising, as little as he knew about

One world. That is what it had been to the many who did not know, before all of this came about. Before the doorways to the Nexus, the pathway between realms, had been opened, there was no way anyone could know. But through circumstances unknown, the barriers were broken. And now all under the watch of the Creator, whether they know it or not, were brought to face a new world. A world where fates would collide, mantles would be tested, power would be vied for, and the true nature of man would be determined.
SICYON, GREECE, 2:31 PM
As this new world gave way to turmoil, the son of Zeus, Kratos, the Ghost of Sparta himself, led his raid on the city of Sicyon, which, as rumors told, had begun to worship the Titans over the Gods. Zeus had made his orders clear: the city would c
Tips and Tricks for Writing a NovelTips and Tricks for Writing a Book:Tips and Tricks for Writing a Novel2 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
The number one thing to remember is that nobody can just magically come up with a perfect story, write it down in about 300 pages and send it off for immediate publishing. I cannot think of a single person who has had this happen. Don't get ahead of yourself, and don't set yourself up for disappointment. You should write because you enjoy writing, not because you want your book to make you millions, get on the Best Seller list and end up having it turned into a movie. As astonishing as it may seem, this kind of luck actually rarely happens.
Now that you understand the good reason to write versus the bad reason to write, I can get you started. Writing is a very interesting process. It varies from writer to writer just like any other art form. Some people find it very easy to punch out the first draft of a novel. They get the idea, sit down, type away and the basic draft is finished in about a week. Others take two years or even more just figuring out
How to NOT Write- Ripping Apart an Amateur StoryIntroductionHow to NOT Write- Ripping Apart an Amateur Story5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Writing fiction is not as easy as some may think. It really isn't. But while there are plenty of guides on how to write well, there are not that many around that show us how to not write that also provide examples of absolute terrible and horrific writing that should not go beyond the notebook (or personal computer) of the author.
So I took the liberty of digging up my own story I wrote at 13 years old. If you frequently read the fiction of 13-year-olds, you will find that most (not all of course, but most) are still learning how to write, and don't do it all that well. To my disbelief (and admittedly slight horror) I find some individuals in university (and beyond) that still write fiction like this. I am far from a great writer- and in some cases I'm rather horrid- but I have improved. I hope that in showing excerpts from my 30,000 word story examined, torn, bashed, washed in dirty soap water, and all-around picked apart will help others avoid all th
Character Tips 1 - AppearanceCreating Characters AppearanceCharacter Tips 1 - Appearance3 years ago in Other More Like This
Here are a few tips to create the body of your new character. Appearance defines your character almost as much as personality. I hope something will be useful to you.
Is your character muscular? Tall and thin? Short and round? I think about body shape as basically height and weight. There are three basic body types that are also useful to know:
1) Ectomorph This is a delicate build. Pretty much tall and thin, there are more angles on these bodies than curves. Limbs and neck are also long and shoulders tend to be small. They often have a flat chest. Ectomorphs tend to have fast metabolisms.
2) Mesomorph A more athletic build. This type is more muscular. They have broad shoulders, a narrow waist and wide hips. This build gives women an hourglass type shape, with more curves than angles. Mesomorphs gain muscle easily.
3) Endomorph A rounder build. The abdominal area is more dominant with a high waist and n

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA, 3:52 PM
Lord Barkis Bittern smiled sinisterly. He knew that this was his perfect opportunity to begin his rise up the criminal pyramid. The city of New Orleans had become a major center for criminal activity, all run by the newly ascended crime lord known only as Facilier. Very little was known about this crime lord, except that he had started out as a poor man in the city. And suddenly, one day, the wealthiest men in town, including "Big Daddy" Lebouff, and his daughter, Charlotte, had disappeared. There was even a rumor that the entire population of the town had disappeared, dragged to some kind of abyss. Barkis believed none of this, nor was he concerned with how Facilier had

THE PALACE OF JUSTICE, PARIS, FRANCE, 5:43 PM
Al Simmons entered the main hall of the Palace of Justice to see Judge Claude Frollo kneeling before a fire place, above which hung a large cross. Simmons walked up to him, polishing his Desert Eagle handgun and observing his surroundings. He could tell just by the sensation that the room gave him that his client was, to say the least, a highly religious figure.
"I thought I told you to apprehend Facilier, Mr. Simmons," said Frollo, without so much as flinching to give Simmons his attention.
"How'd you know I didn't capture him?" replied Simmons casually, still polishing his pistol, looking toward Frollo as he
Writers' Notes - Fight ScenesWriters' Notes - Fight Scenes4 years ago in Writing More Like This
I have read enough books to find that fighting scenes can be difficult to write. Some of the novels I have read have had painful fighting scenes so this tutorial is an amalgamation of my thoughts on the best ways to do it.
First, let's break this down into aspects to think about:
Before writing fight scenes think about the characters involved. What are their skills, what are their ideas of fighting? Why are they doing so? Is it a sense of survival? Is it to show honour like a duel?
For example -
Does a peaceful man watch his brothers murdered in a slaughter by the king's men. Does he, in a rage, grab a fallen sword and defend the last of them. He holds no skill but the sheer fury at watching his peaceful world be shattered. Afterwards does he vow revenge and ride for the king's castle or retreat to the mountains to get over what he di
