  1. I am somewhat in the "I will write no matter what" camp, but mine is entirely reflective of my mental state. Over the past two years (until very recently), I have been in a fugue state magnified tenfold by the pandemic. Probably the only reason I decided to return to the keyboard at all after that was because of the few readers who kept tabs on me and kept reaching out to support me in various ways. I don't know that the feedback is always vital to me, but sometimes it's the lifeline when you're feeling like you'll never be able to achieve what you want to with your work, and I think in that s

    This made me laugh, thank you!

    Untitled Misery

    Thank you all for your fine compliments and support. This was something I wrote a couple months back and found hidden in my notes. At the time I was feeling the loss of potential I saw in myself due to dealing with trauma in my youth. I am, thankfully, in a much better place since then.
  5. I am a fond tragedy The last rites of a dying god Falling leaves in autumn A shrine to what could have been A whisper of secret gatherings in the hearts of men Who wanted a better world And died for the dream without ever waking Weep not for me but for the nightmares It is they which make the children cry out Only soldiers and survivors know the quiet helplessness of my demise Tragic that we were We are not the world We are its echoes in the dark
  6. Thank you! I'm glad you liked it. There isn't a sequel as of yet. I've tried writing one a few times and none of those attempts made it much further than a few chapters. I still think I will, but I don't really know when it will happen.
  7. Thank you for the imagery. I've never been compared to Gandalf before, and I appreciate it! I'm grateful for that. It's exactly what I was hoping for. Sorry it took so long to get back to both of you. It's been a rough couple of months.
  8. Oh friend in death who seeks the old wisdom Of me, such who has escaped Hell's kingdom Beseech me through the modern letter's view A soft blue glow upon the sleepless night The Devil's flame in silicon attire A new obsession born of restless plight Succumbs now to the loneliest desire What purpose has a ghost of Hell's domain? To answer the riddles of death and sin? Is the clarity of life found in pain? Is a devil without or found within? A soul seeks that which understands itself As the bright flame burns above in splendor It casts long shad

    Chapter 7

    Thank you, thank you. Keith was, I think, the first time I'd finally understood a character I was writing. I'd written short stories before this, and attempted my hands at various novels when I was in high school and as a young adult, but none of them got anywhere. I think Keith is the reason this one did. Indeed! Thank you for the compliments, and I'm really glad you've enjoyed it. This was my favorite chapter in War On Earth, though many of my favorite chapters in the novella trilogy are still to come. I imagine you're going to like some of the later emotional travels as well.

    Chapter 6

    I have thankfully learned a lot since this novel haha! I appreciate the dissection and thinking ahead. I look forward to seeing the rest of your thoughts.

    Chapter 5

    Ah Keith... he's my favorite, and I look forward to you learning more about him.

    Chapter 5

    This is actually the first of the two, and I like using elements of stories from our world on any of my projects set here. It keeps me grounded.

    Chapter 3

    I wish I could say I planned that out, but honestly when I was writing this I hadn't yet learned a lot about plotting a story. It has the pace it does just because that's where my brain took it at the time, haha!

    Chapter 1

    This is my first novel and a bit rough as a result, but I'm glad to hear it!
  15. I just finished responding to your comment, but now I wonder if you have a favorite among the characters? In writing this, I put more of myself into Nevala than anyone else, but Micah has my heart.
