    The Knight is approaching

    Well my new story, A knight to remember, has been submitted and boy did I start off with one hell of a long chapter, over 4300 words - and I loved every one of them. For the few people who follow me I shall give you a preview of the very beginning, enjoy:

    Well I am sure you have all caught up with the new chapters I uploaded last week and I must say it is hard to believe just how much people are enjoying this so far. Because of this however I have realized that I need to push myself to improve, thus I now have an editor (Dream Weaver) and a proofreader

    Just a little longer

    Yes, yes, I know. I am well over due for the next chapter, I already have George poking me every chance he can slip into my thoughts, he wants me to get around to his bit so he can shine, anyone would think it was his story. Not to mention Discord showing up at the strangest moment to add other crazy ideas he thinks I should try out. (Just a quick warning to those of you who develop characters in

    Short brake

    Sorry for no new chapter yet but I have had a few distractions (brother's wedding). It will be at least another two weeks or so before I can focus on Impressions due to Guildwars 2 now being out. You have no idea how excited I have been for this game, even going so far as to cut my self off from any reviews or lets plays, so that nothing is spoiled for me. Along side that I have a costume to sort

The Knight is approaching · 2:55am Feb 10th, 2013

Well my new story, A knight to remember, has been submitted and boy did I start off with one hell of a long chapter, over 4300 words - and I loved every one of them. For the few people who follow me I shall give you a preview of the very beginning, enjoy:

“Good dragon, nice dragon. You stay on your side of the cave and I’ll stay on mine.” The words were breathed out of the helmet as much as they were spoken through its vents, and quickly swallowed up by the cavern, hungry to consume all light and life. It was large and roomy with the typical stalactites and stalagmites associated with a cave of this age, however, many of the more central spires and towers were broken and now little more than stumps jutting out of the floor and ceiling. The message was clear, something big had passed this way.

A far smaller creature then the one that had left its mark, carefully moved along the edges of the cavern, keeping as much rock and distance between itself and the sleeping mountain of scales. Heavy feet made surprisingly little noise against the stone underfoot, though that was mostly due to the layer of ash that coated everything; footprints would be left, but the owner of the feet was hoping to be long gone before the cave’s occupant would notice the disturbance to its decor. Slow breathing echoed around the cavern helping to mask any misstep, or other unintentional sound, that might cause the dreamer to stur. Its breath was hot and sulfurous, and almost seemed to cling to the vacating visitor like a blanket, before it would sweep past and raced to meet the cooler morning air. Almost out and with the light, quite literally, at the end of the tunnel, the dragon’s ‘guest’ quickened his pace. Luck, however, seem to leave him at that moment, as the sound of claws on stone and very large bones snapping into very large joints echoed around the cavern. Nap time was over.

A man, clad in metal, suddenly made an extremely quick, and extremely loud, exit from the cave that was situated in the side of an impressively large mountain. Behind him, and far closer than the man would have liked, trailed a dark green dragon whose blinking eyes and shaking head pertained that it had, until very recently, been asleep.

“Quick! Ready the horses!” The metal man shouted, with more than a little bit of panic staining his voice. The words were push forwards and towards a rocky outcrop, where two stocky horses were being restrained, though not without protest, by a wiry figure in the standard leather and cloth of a squire’s livery. The boy, who could be no more than fifteen of sixteen, was quick to unknot the grander and bulkier looking dabbled, gray mare before going round to its right side to hold onto its saddle. The movements were quick and practiced, this, after all, was not the first time they had had to make a quick getaway, though this was the first dragon, unless you counted Madam Rillat three towns over.

4300 words is considered a long chapter? really?

1514184 Hehe for me yes, I have been pushing my usual chapters up for 2k, so at least in comparison to what is usual to me it is long. Writing is not something that comes easily to me, but I am not about to sit back and be happy to just use that as an excuse. So I am trying hard to improve and strengthen what little skill I do have in writing. After all, life would be boring if everything came naturally.

1518481 huh... I guess I got spoiled by helping my friend edit and proofread his fanfics, when his chapters are never less than 5k words... and up to 11k(?) words.

1519535 boy do I wish I could write that much for a single chapter...come to think of it I guess most of my readers feel the same :scootangel:

1519565 Indubitably. I think a consistent schedule for release is more important than word-count though. My friend just writes whenever he feels like it, so it ends up quite erratic.
