A Paragraph for You

May 28

As promised, here is the opening paragraph of the new story I’m working on.  I’ll post more of the chapter soon.

 

Rolf’s breath came hard and fast as he pelted through the forest, trying to get as far away from the battle as possible.  The clash of swords, the neighing of horses, and the screams of the wounded rang out behind him like discordant music.  He scurried behind a tree and leaned against it to catch his breath.  His arm ached under the heavy shield and he contemplated throwing it away into the bushes.  His halberd dangled in his grip and he knew he might as well let it drop to the ground; he had a sword, and the halberd would only impede his escape.  It was far too noticeable anyway, holding its proud, glittering head high in the air for all to see.  And he was a man who must hold his head low from now on.

Apologies

So you may or may not have noticed that I haven’t been around lately; apologies.  There was screwy stuff going on with the blog and I was trying to finish up the semester while maintaining whatever sanity I had left.  But now we’re back in full swing!  Very soon I’ll post a snippet of a new something I’m writing.  I call it ‘something’ because originally I thought it might be a short story, but now it looks more like a novel, albeit a small one.  I guess we’ll see!  And I am planning out a few short stories that I will post bits of, if I ever actually get them worked out.

In other words, more posts to follow!

Happy Easter!

April 20

“On the third day the friends of Christ coming at day-break to the place found the grave empty and the stone rolled away.  In varying ways they realized the new wonder; but even they hardly realized that the world had died in the night.  What they were looking at was the first day of a new creation, with a new heaven and a new earth; and in a semblance of the gardener God walked again in the garden, in the cool not of the evening but the dawn.”  ~G.K. Chesterton, ‘The Everlasting Man’

Enjoy your Easter!
