An Ethereal Distraction

An Ethereal Distraction

JOURNAL ENTRY #15 It has been a while since I last opened my journal. Days have given way to nights, and this cycle has in turn produced weeks and then months. By these measurements of time I have worked hard, and yet as I have worked, I have been joined by an...

Beyond the Wild Lands

Beyond the Wild Lands

JOURNAL ENTRY #14 It has been months now and I have finally journeyed beyond the known borders of the wild lands. There is an unsettling ambience to the landscape here. Something is not right and yet I cannot quite place the problem. In some ways it is an unmistakable...

An Ambitious Expedition

An Ambitious Expedition

JOURNAL ENTRY #13 ‚ÄčOnce every few hundred years or so, history gleams with a story of inspiring ambition. Hinged on the moment that an individual decided to do something that others claimed was impossible. While I have no illusion that the expedition I now find myself...

Silence

Silence

JOURNAL ENTRY #12 Having at long last escaped the perils of my last expedition, I have returned to the safety of my outpost. The danger was actually not as severe as I first thought. Indeed, the challenge brought with it some pleasant surprises and has given me a...

An Unseen Danger

An Unseen Danger

JOURNAL ENTRY #11 It had only been a few days before I stumbled upon a ruin in the high mountains. Ruins can be dangerous places, and I tend to supress my curiosity in order to carry on with the goal of my expedition. Unfortunately a raging storm has forced me to...

A Brief Return

A Brief Return

JOURNAL ENTRY #10 Having once again returned to my small outpost in these fierce but exciting lands, I feel somewhat divided. On the one hand, I am weary from another long undertaking. On the other, an energy courses through my veins like waters raging through a...

The Second Expedition

The Second Expedition

JOURNAL ENTRY #9 When I first set out on this expedition, there was an energy in the air. It was the sort of energy that you see when you notice the pine trees high above you swaying in the breeze. The sort that you smell as the fresh mountain air swirls about you....

Enhancements

Enhancements

JOURNAL ENTRY #8 The literary frontier is a truly beautiful place. I almost feel sorry for writers trapped in the familiar territories of the Five Kingdoms, but then I remember how much work in takes to make it out here. I have spent considerable time on the...

Fairy Tales

Fairy Tales

JOURNAL ENTRY #7 With the crisp air blowing relentlessly from the South, I must do what I can to prepare this camp for winter. In its current state, it is quite small, yet I have plans to build upon its strong foundations with all manner of useful construction. I will...

The First Expedition

The First Expedition

JOURNAL ENTRY #6 This expedition has taken far longer than I could have imagined. The wild lands are indeed vast and dangerous. Yet in this time I have explored the mines of hard work, excavated the ruins of past mistakes, discovered small hamlets of good ideas, and...

Firelight

Firelight

JOURNAL ENTRY #5 With the fire now burning brightly in my newly established base-camp, I thought I might take a moment to rest. It is peaceful right now. Serene. Although it is the sort of serenity that carries an ominous note. There is a storm coming and I must...

Base Camp

Base Camp

JOURNAL ENTRY #4 After weeks of travel, I have chanced upon a glade in the high mountains and can go no more. The path now before me has become too dangerous. Far below, I have spied fellow travellers attempting to navigate this infernal territory, and all but a few...

Wild Lands

Wild Lands

JOURNAL ENTRY #3 I have been walking for days. The way of my choosing is now quite narrow. In some places, I cannot even see a path and must navigate these forests by intuition alone. Indeed, the wide road did not remain so for long. Artisanal publishing, it appears,...

Crossroads

Crossroads

JOURNAL ENTRY #2 So right now I am standing at a crossroad of sorts. The two paths that lead from here both appear to be well worn, although the way to my right is certainly wider. The name of this path is Independence. This is the path for writers who wish to take...

Beginnings

Beginnings

JOURNAL ENTRY #1 Well, here we are. Standing on the precipice of new beginnings and looking out over the vast landscape of uncertainty. To say that the journey to this point has been interesting would be an understatement. Nevertheless, this very precipice has been a...
