Nano winner!

Phew… Despite the feeling that what I wrote this year is mostly useless tripe, I still managed to kick my behind sufficiently to produce 50000 words this month. Even though Fallout 3 kept me quite busy too. Go me! ^_^ Of course, the usual addendum at this point is that I still need to finish the [...]

Nanowrimo 2008

So, for those of you who might be wondering why I’m not writing anything here lately, well… it’s November again! ^_^ Back to Nanowrimo, the crazy challenge that consists of writing 50000 words in one month. This is my third year, and I’ve won both previous ones, but I never finished the story started in [...]

Chapter 1 – at last!

Right. So, here’s two pages of the first chapter, and the whole chapter in a .doc file to download and read as you please. Enjoy! —————————————————————————————————— A port city was always a place of wonder and amazement. Ships of all sizes and shapes, clad in multicoloured sails, lined the piers as they disgorged exotic merchandise [...]

Ok, so it’s about time I make good on my promise of putting things online. So, for your reading pleasure (I hope!), here is the prologue to Clockwork Fairy. I’m putting it on a separate page – it’s a bit long for a blog entry. A few ground rules: – Obviously, this is mine. No [...]

The main character is called Kelfar, he’s a sorcerer and a mercenary, travelling the world with his [...]

Excusez l’absence d’accents, je rectifierai ca plus [...]

Alors, à la demande générale (DEUX !), une autre horreur rimée, comme ça, pour de rire. La ‘morale’ est d’époque, mais j’ai refait le texte depuis, parce que malheureusement j’ai bien peur d’avoir perdu les originaux. Et ‘bleh !’ pour les déménagements à répétition. Donc, sans plus attendre, je me permets à nouveau de pouèter [...]

Il y a bien des années de cela, quand j’étais encore plein d’illusions quant à mes qualités littéraires, j’avais essayé de faire de la poésie. Soyons honnêtes, mes illusions se sont vites éteintes: je sais peut-être écrire, mais pas vraiment des poèmes. Pas des ‘vrais‘, en tout cas – pas des Lamartine ou des Baudelaire. [...]
