Okay, so do you remember this journal post here: Break Out The Champagne I wanted to celebrate but I couldn't get enough people to answer back on the poll to make a clear decision. So I decided instead to make the decision to share a small work in progress from my writing. Which can be found here: Chapter 1 Teaser Don't be too harsh on it, it's like crazy unpolished and basic. It's pre-first draft. Though critiques would be very appreciated. Enjoy!
I just want to thank you all again for all of your wonderful support! I also want to remind you of my feature contest from the journal prior mentioned. All you have to do is be one of my watchers, fav this journal, and comment with two pieces of your best work! That's it! If you are a new watcher you are welcome to join, but please don't unwatch me after, that's kind of rude to just join for possible points and leave. I will do a random draw from whoever sends me their art and the winner will be featured in a journal as well as on my donation widget! Yes, I said donation widget! Which I'll leave you in for a month! I changed the game, didn't I? Awesome huh? Anyway, to make this contest even juicier I will award the random winner 10 points!
The rules are to be a watcher, fav this journal, and comment with two pieces of your best art.

HelpersThe Duna River. June 2013. The rest of the world calls it the Danube. Not the Hungarians. They call it the Duna. It’s threatening to overflow the banks. So we don yellow shirts, with the picture of blue and green hands. A group of about fifty or seventy. A lot of us happen to be serving as missionaries here. The Mormons. The Mormon Helping Hands. That’s us. With our signature bright yellow shirts and those of us who are missionaries, with our nametags on. Everyone else seems to know where we’re going and what we’ll be doing, so I just follow along. I don’t speak or understand Hungarian all that well yet so I just nod and smile and then ask one of the other missionaries, “Right, where are we going?” like Pippin, I don’t quite know what I’ve gotten myself into. We arrive to an incredible scene. Piles and piles of sandbags. Some of the
Does literature count as art?

A Matter of Honour: Vengeance
Somewhere in the Westwatch Mountains, The Frozen North.

"Well," Xerix muttered to himself ruefully as he trudged doggedly through a snowbank "this is probably the quietest snowstorm I've ever been in."
The giant fluffy flakes of snow gently floated downwards in nearly straight lines with no wind to disturb them, almost making the traveller feel as if he were walking through curtains of soft clouds whenever there was a break in the foliage overhead.

A pair of my fantasy works.
Vengance is a preview of the “reboot” I’ve been working on, while the chapter below that is the first I ever wrote for my “A Matter of Honour” series.
BTW. Loving the feel of your chapter. It’s like a spaghetti western in a fantasy world.
