NaNo Novel: Chapter One
NaNoWriMo Novel 2010: The Clockwork of Faye
Chapter One - Homeward Bound
Everything looked exactly the same.
Half a day had passed, and no matter how hard Sarn looked, the Zhongshui looked just like it had before, when she had left it. She didn't know how much time had passed. Sometimes it felt like lifetimes. Sometime she wondered if she had only been gone a day. Sarn tried not to show her disappointment, but it was difficult. More so than it should have been. Her face and body felt like an open canvas, clearly painted for anyone and everyone to see. She was biting her lip, her fingers picking at the clothes that had once been a soft grey and were now stained with blood and sand and who knew what else. Her eyes felt empty as she stared out across the open waterscape of the Zhongshui, taking in the forms of the structures, the lapping water. It felt familiar and strange all at once. She had known this place her entire life, but compared to Lorechant…the two worlds were as d

Bird Bones Redux
Upon the ground against the sand
I see it: the skeleton of a bird long passed.
Sightlessly staring at the sky.
The cage of its ribs gleaming white,
its keeled breastbone, strung
in perfect harmony
against those outstretched bones of wings.
Scrubbed clean by constant rivertide
'till flesh is but a memory.
Yet still contain the yearning,
the aching memory of flight.
I stop to look at those old bones
huddled on the river's edge,
like fledglings too afraid to fly.
Within – I see their hollow chambers,
cathedrals in a dust-bound world.
Sacred geometry, delicately forged,
gossamer webs, shroud in shadow
Singing lowly through the children,
that lived so long before my time.
The bones begin to speak to mine;
whispers, just the barest voice.
Let me tell you, so they whispered,
let me tell you of the story
when my old kind first took the leap,
and crossed the gap from ground to sky.
Let me tell you of the story,
when these old bones once dreamt to fly:
Shallow seas act as a womb;
a cradle;

I love drawing fantasy art and photography, but I also love to write, so that's mainly what you get here. Watch out for my infamous love of the blue-yellow-purple-black color scheme. :D

NaNo Success

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 4, 2010, 1:13 AM

It's been a busy week. Not only am I sick (it's actually a regular old cold for once, what a suprise) but I have a concert tonight, SAT on Saturday, and a buttload of tests. And the need to sleep every once in awhile. But miracle of miracles! I've somehow managed to keep up with the NaNoWriMo wordcount - and not just keep up, but exceed it! I'm thanking my past self for writing up an extensive outline, because it's the only thing that's kept me from fizzling out.


How is your noveling going, fellow Wrimos?


(Note that I won't be updating much of ANYTHING until December, when I'll hopefully have an Intuos Wirelss to draw pretty pretty things on, and some time to spare. ^^ )

  • Listening to: The Clockwork Dolls
  • Reading: Fire Bringer
  • Drinking: Coke Zero (what a surprise)
