It lives...barely....

So, for a while there, I had given up on writing. And that meant I had given up on DoI. I had a lot of real life stuff to deal with. Things have calmed down now and I'm trying to get back into writing again. I can't promise anything but I did start to update the wiki with some new info. I'm not sure I'm back to writing the novel yet but I am going to work on the wiki and see if that gets me going.

Chapter 10, a Wiki, and an Apology!

Chapter 10 is now up at deviantArt. I've submitted it to Elfwood, so look for it show up there in the next couple of weeks. It also now available in Microsoft Word .doc format at the Dusk of Innocence Wiki hosted at Wetpaint.

That's right--I've created a DoI Wiki. My notes for the novel and its universe are getting a bit unwieldy. So, I've been meaning to create a wiki to help sort everything. At first I was just going to create a personal wiki for me, but as I looked into it I found Wetpaint. Well, part of my goal with publishing DoI as I wrote it was to include the reader in the writing process. So, the wiki will be available as cannon source material to everyone. I won't put in any info that could be considered spoilers (such as Ian's last name) until such information is revealed in the story itself. Right now, its just sort of an outline of what I want to include, but look for me to start putting more up over the next few months.

Finally, an apology on how long it took me to finish Chapter 10. I'm not sure why it took so long. It really has been "nearly" finished for a month now. I finished it up in a hour this morning, did some quick proofreading, and posted it. I'm also sorry because there will be a delay on Chapter 11 because I want to work on the Wiki and get myself more organized before I go any further with the novel. So bear with me (if there's anyone left reading this that is), I promise it will help make Dusk of Innocence a fuller reading experience.

Sir Markas Tau

Sir Markas Tau by smoonsilver

So, yes I've been playing at Polyvore again. But I also have been working on Chapter 10. I've decided to end it a bit sooner than I originally intended, but I think dramatically it will work better. Also, it means I should finish it sooner.

As for the above Polyvore, its probably not the best representation of Markas or Kirin. But it was the best I could find. Markas, of course, wields a great axe not a great sword. And I'm sure this would bother the Markas' inspiration greatly. But it portrays the general feel of Markas so I went with it. I really do wish I was better artist so I could draw all the characters. For now, my pathetic polyvore attempts and my pathetic art on Elfwood/dA will have to do. Sorry.

Not DoI related...

...but I put up some of my old poetry at deviantArt. WARNING:A lot of it deals with mature topics and uses some language that people may find offensive. In other words, my poetry is nothing like DoI. A lot of it deals with eroticism or gender issue. You have been warned.

Chapter 9 at Elfwood....and some bad news

The title pretty much says it all. Chapter 9 is now available at Elfwood.

The bad news is that there will probably be another delay with Chapter 10. Not writer's block this time either, I recently started a new job and its consuming all my time. Still, I'll hopefully be back to the novel by the end of October.

In the mean time, enjoy Chapter 9 (if you already haven't).
