Before the SOPA blackout takes many of you offline I wanted to say I am up to 4k words on my current short story project. I am enjoying it very much. I think this story is within 2k words of being done, give or take. Here is a little WIP:
“I am Ordwin of the people, of the blood-red hills of Methsinia, we who burn the metal from the ground and gild it with silver and gold. We of the lost years and the forgotten empire who remember the old ways of war.
I, who have come to sup on the flesh of man and rend the skin from virgins to adorn my shoulders, am a monster; and this is my tale.”
Rather a dark beginning for what is turning out equally dark and fun tale. I am looking forward to ending it tomorrow.
