Caption Challenge #5

Time for the next Caption Challenge! But first to announce the winner of last week’s challenge, which was this prompt:

Choosing a winner this time was hard, but I finally settle on Corissa, Maiden of Praise with the caption, ‘The voice of your father still calls’. Congratulations! A close runner-up is by Sophia White with the caption, ‘Strength can come from the most unlikely places’. 
And now for this week’s contest. 🙂
Comment below with a one line caption for the prompt; you can post up to three entries. On Saturday I’ll pick a winning caption and I’ll post it next Monday along with the name of the winner and the next caption challenge. 🙂
 

I Am A Writer

I found this picture on Pinterest and thoroughly enjoyed it.

A few of my own searches have included, ‘what color is a year-old scar’, ‘how long do whipping wounds take to heal’, and ‘are plasma guns realistic’? What are a few unusual or humorous searches you’ve made?

Caption Challenge #4

Time for the next Caption Challenge! But first to announce the winner of last week’s challenge, which was this prompt:

And the winner is Corissa, Maiden of Praise with the caption, ‘Tell me why the people have hope again’. Congratulations! I’m trying not to think of that line in connection with the picture because I really don’t need any more ideas. 😉 
And now for this week’s contest. 🙂

Keros

Keros, picture from Pinterest
Alongside all my other writing, I’ve been working pretty steadily though The Final Clash yet again, making minor corrections and polishing bits that need it. One larger change has to do with Keros. A friend mentioned his character would be better if deepened and I agreed. 
After some thought, I decided to build up Keros’s relationship with his father. It was something which already existed in my mind but which I’d not done much with in the book. 
Keros’s story holds a touch of tragic. He loves his father dearly, and is loved in return, but circumstances have risen between them and they only see each other occasionally. Still, they make the most of their moments together and looking forward to the time when they will be able to live under the same roof. 
In the meantime, they live as they must, and there’s nothing they wouldn’t do for the other. 

Caption Challenge #3

Time for the next Caption Challenge, but first for the winners of last week’s challenge, which was this prompt:

And the winner is Anna S. Brie with the caption, ‘It was a dream so vivid that it burned’. And a runner up I really loved is by Rebecca M: ‘The two moons darkened. The forest burned. The time from prophecy was upon us’. 
And now for this week’s contest. 🙂

Mission Accomplished!

Scarlet Rose is completed! Well, the first draft anyway. It is 53 chapters long; 83,144 words.

Now, it is true that I have quite a bit to add to the book; ideas I’ve come up with during the writing. It might be nearly twice the length after my second draft is finished. Right now it’s a bit of a mess. But it’s done! The rough draft is done and I am so happy about it. 

Caption Challenge #2

Time for the second Caption Challenge, but first for the winners of last week’s challenge, which was this prompt:

And the winner is Rebecca M with the caption, ‘Without valor, there is no freedom’. And a close runner up (I won’t always be doing a runner up, but I really liked this caption too), is by Fereleth, Carrier of Light: ‘One of us had to sacrifice…or death would have taken us all’. 
And now for this week’s contest. 🙂
