Chapter 2: The Third Impossible Thing
    Despite the protests of their parents, the children of the village were more motivated by their curiosity and excitement at the sight of a giant than by fear or caution.  Thus, did the Kalevide make his way to Nasva, in the hour before sundown.  Already word has spread to the nearby houses and docks about their visiting friend, who had made himself comfortable sitting against the side of a barn near the center of town.  His legs were sprawled out across the east road out of town and he playfully shot knowing glances at the young ones who were trying to sneak a look at him while his head was turned.
    With a playful look on his face, he changed his seat and let his long legs extend across the Nasva River.  Closing his eyes he pretended not to notice the children at all.  At first only the boldest ones would even approach the giant.  In short order the children were not only touching their king, but jumping onto him from a nearby wo

Chapter 1: A House Without Walls
    As many times as Vesa looked at the cloud that morning, he was certain that it had not moved from its place in the sky.  It was the last day of summer, and a cool breeze rippled the surface of the lake, and he longed to be out on the waters instead of mending fishing nets.  Despite the weather, the cloud kept its place in the sky, but to him it was only the second most interesting sight in the heavens.
    “Come on Mikk, ask him.”  Innar and Vallo had spent most their morning goofing off, as usual, but it now seemed like they were turning their attention to Vesa.  Not missing the opportunity, Mikk dropped his needle and strode over to Vesa, blocking his view of the lake and sunny sky.
    “So Vesa, tell me about the tree.”  Reaching out his massive hand, Mikk shoved Vesa’s shoulder and laughed.  But Vesa was ready for it and simply let himself fall over backwards.  The boys all got their

Prologue: Visitors from the Northern Wilds
    There are few things worse than waking up before you’re ready.  Kwaku kept his eyes closed and hoped the noise from the birds in the forest would quiet down, but they did not.  Usually he welcomed the sound of his feathered friends; but today the tropical birds had woken him up before the light of the sun, and there was no comfort to be found in their chattering.
    “Curse those birds, too eager to start the day before even Nyame is awake.”  He rubbed his eyes awake as he sat up, stretching out his back and legs.
    To his side, his wife breathed in deep, revealing she was awake as well.  But she did not open her eyes or move.
    “Nobody is ever ready for the day to start.  You just get up and make breakfast for the children because you love your wife who spent the better half of the night caring for your infant child and…”
    “Say no more dear one.”

Konoha Vice - Chapter 20
    It was three in the morning but Kiba knew there was nothing waiting for him at home.  After everyone else had stumbled back to their apartments, he drove up the strip to clear his head.
    Stopping at a sign, his attention was drawn to his left where he saw several people chasing each other on the sidewalk and breaking out in a fight.  Instinctively his hand went to his gear shifter but then he saw the man with a camera filming them.  Watching them for a moment Kiba found their style of taekwondo rather interesting.  But to film at 3am might mean they were filming ‘Guerilla style’ without a permit.  After a couple of takes, he decided to park close to their filming and find out the name of their project.
    Sure enough the director, an enthusiastic Korean gentleman, was trying to make the movie on the cheap and this was the best time to film fight scenes on the streets.  Not wanting to waste his time and won

Konoha Vice - Chapter 19
    Joan Jett’s “I love Rock and Roll” was playing over the apartment’s stereo system as Sakura finally got around to opening Sasuke’s present.  Ino kept trying to sing along but Kiba was interjecting with lyrics to Weird Al’s “I love Rocky Road” to mess with her.
    “No way, a CD Player?” That finally caught Hinata’s attention.  Sure enough Sasuke had bought her one of those new disc players, played media through an internal laser instead of magnetic tape or audio needles.  Sakura gave him a big bug and a kiss on the cheek, Hinata did her best to look happy but she was still trying to process her roommate/girlfriend and her professional rival as dating.
    The short exchanged that followed Sasuke entering the apartment had consisted of: everyone wondering what history was between Sasuke and Hinata, Hinata mentioning Sasuke’s record of frustrating cases on opposing sid

Chasing a fickle muse

Tue Oct 24, 2017, 7:18 PM
Been a while since I've spoken/updated about my novel.  It's no big surprise for two reasons:
1. Being the fact that deviantart is feeling kind of stale of late.  Plenty of great artists still post here, but it's been stagnant.  Never really became that social community that so many other sites have become (and there are plenty of reasons for that, I'm sure).
2. Truth be told... I've had some real bad struggles the past year.  After doing my first two drafts, I cut my first novel into two, had to do a lot of rework on the direction I wanted to take, did another 6 drafts (of various percentages of completion - start is always the hardest part) before eventually settling on a story arc that I think will work.  Now I just need to finish writing it.

Anyways, I was hoping to finish the story before commissioning art for the cover and characters, but I decided to get the art first.  Have previews of the art (if you are interested) but I don't plan to do any big reveals until I have completed the novel (or in the weeks approaching release).

Guess my current quandary is wondering if I want to continue to go with the "young adult" angle (which would make sense as the characters are all mid-teens, or if I want to make it more of an adult fiction - as during the mythological setting of the story, mid-teens were considered adults.  Things to think about.

See you in the Bronze Age.
