A Little About My Story

Here is a brief summary of my story in its current form. This thing is evolving regularly, and I am going to have to find a way to focus it. Anyway, here it goes.

My story is about a young woman named Pippa, 18-20ish, who has to wield a powerful weapon to defeat an evil man and the army he has created. With the proper tools, this man can use the weapon's magic to take over the world.

I created several classes for characters to belong to, and the people receive training based on their abilities, magical or not. It is similar to Druid, Ranger, Warrior, etc., but some of these abilities are different and I have created different names, but I believe it will be easy to recognize the similarities, and therefore, easy to relate.

The MC does not having any training from one of the formal academies because her class is so rare that the last time one of her class existed was a long time ago (I haven't decided how far back that should be yet), and it was an ancestor. As such, her mother and uncle have trained her for this class as best they could based on the history. She understands the responsibilities she must endure.

However, the evil man has already stolen the weapon from her house, and she has to get it back before he discovers how to use it. This man has also stolen the main tool he needs to be successful, and is also trying to figure out how to use that. In the process, she must discover how to use it herself, and she enlists the help of people from other parts of the world in her quest.


I'm not going to get much writing done today. I have homework instead. Two-count them-TWO semester-long projects this go round and they need my attention.

Here in a few weeks, I should be able to get more writing done as my commitment to one of the projects will finish with me participating in the last team that I am required to do. Then I will only have to meet during the times the entire class meets. Hooray!

So I am off to work on my Computer Information Systems Senior Project and my group project for Accounting Information Systems. And I have homework for my environmental geology class for tomorrow. And some homework due on Tuesday and a test on Thursday for my operations management class. Then it will be Spring Break after that, and I am so excited.

I have also been somewhat reluctant to write due to a self-imposed dilemma explained here. I am taking advice and hopefully by Tuesday, my regular writing day, I will make a decision and proceed with glee.

Welcome to My Blog!

Hello and welcome! The main purpose of this blog is to share my progression in writing my first novel, providing you with an interesting read, and for me, the motivation to work harder to focus my writing.

Of course, by the title, I intend to include other aspects of my life where appropriate. Joys, frustrations, triumphs, and failures. Anything interesting actually.

More to come tomorrow. My spelling has become horrible, so I must be tired. Off to hit the sack!
