Quick Update and NaNo Plans

There hasn’t been a ton of posting going on here since January, so I thought I’d do a quick update. ^-^

General Update *salutes*

Life is trending about the same as it was earlier this year. I’m choosing to focus on dealing with how things are atm, but I have a few hopeful plans for changing things up and finding a better steady-job/writing work ratio. We’ll see how it goes.

In other news, you can find me on Twitter now! What!? I started earlier this year, and was surprised to find it not nearly as terrifying as I’d thought. If you’d like to check out my ramblings in real-time, my handle is @JennIsWriting. Be advised that my writing updates are still scattered and I have a lot of feels about things political… I also live-tweet Critical Role on most Thursdays. If all that sounds good, come on over. ^-^

I’m planning on doing some updating and fixing things around the blog. Continue reading

Poetry Month Fridays – Unfinished Epics: The Two At Gonl

A black wave surging
‘tween mountain walls.
Roaring with one voice,
rushing with one purpose,
to break,
with fury, with rage
upon the two who held against them.
The ogres charged.
But the two stood fast.

One a daughter of the arrow.
Helnara, called The Bow,
laughed in the face of the darkness,
laughed, as she bent her bow
and loosed two arrows.
How straight and true her arrows!

The air humming with their flight,
each summoned an enemy
to the Cold One’s halls.
Yet the wave swept onward
as she drew again.
Warm the sun on her bright hair shining,
fierce the light in her eyes,
as she sighted down twin shafts.

Helnara The Bow,
facing hundreds,
laughed
to see them running to their death.

Poetry Month Fridays – Unfinished Epics: Dream Song

In the still of the night,
when the stars shone dim,
I wandered alone, for I could not rest.
I wandered alone in the shadows.
Not a noise did I hear,
no sweet night-bird’s hymn.
By no sylvan sound was the silence blessed.
By no sylvan sound from the shadows.

Yes the forest’s full voice was stilled that night
till a song stole out of the shadows. Continue reading

Poetry Month Fridays – Unfinished Epics: The Key Riddles

The Key of Light

Hold your anchors, hold your boats,
leave off the slippery sides.
You will find no anchor here,
where the first key bides.

Within the sacred, ancient hill
is where the secret hides.
But only water can breach the stone
and find where it resides.

Towers, walls, and battlements
hold your guards and guides.
Watch the shields, watch for swords,
and watch the burning tides.

Poetry Month Fridays

It’s October again! That means crisp air, costumes, and poetry month. ^-^

To be perfectly honest, I am not a prolific poet. I really just dabble, mostly for the fun of playing with rhyme schemes and syllable counts. A lot of my poetry (at least the stuff I will admit to) was written many years ago, and most of it has already been used for two previous sets of Poetry Month Fridays.

That being said, I think I still have one more set I can use… although it will be a slightly different theme than other poetry months: Unfinished Epics.

By epic, I mean a poem that portrays an actual story, in a grand and complicated style. Strangely, I have several of these: a riddle for a grand quest, the story of a fierce battle, and a whimsical tale of faerie. I hope you will enjoy them, even in their incomplete forms. And I also kind of hope that re-reading and talking about them will give me a little inspiration to get back to work. ^-^ The series will start next week, on Friday of course!

Enjoy the colorful, dancing days of autumn everyone!

From A Clear Blue Sky

Ladiya lay on her stomach, keeping a drowsy eye on the street outside her narrow alley. The area around the Suncut Bazaar could never truly be silent, even at night, but the heat of midday managed to subdue the hubbub and bustle somewhat. Shouts of merchants selling their wares were few, and almost languid in nature. People in the street tended to meander instead of stride. Even the patrols of the Hand of Ord, in their brilliant sapphire and brass regalia, passed by her at a pace which could only be called sedate.

She would be safe here for quite a while, tucked into the tiny shadow provided by a stack of crates. It had just enough shade to be baking instead of broiling; not to mention a perfect view of her target. With a sigh of contentment, Ladi rested her head on her folded arms and settled in to wait.

It’s 2017 And I’m Still Alive…

This is about the best thing I can say right now.

My last post was in July of last year, ugh. Honestly, I always get hit by this weird malaise in the summer; and since I didn’t feel like I had a lot to talk about, there didn’t seem to be a reason to keep fighting it. I’m usually myself again when the cold starts to creep back in October, so I figured I’d get back to posting then. I underestimated how much the anniversary of my friend’s death, in October, was going to affect me.

And then November happened…

I’m glad to say that even though I haven’t been able to sit down and write a post for the blog, I have been working on my other writing. At a snail’s pace sometimes, but working nonetheless. ^-^ So, even though it’s way past New Year’s at this point, I’m going to go ahead and do my usual goal review anyhow.

I had kind of a long list for 2016. Let’s see how I did!
