New Story

I am going to try to write a new story, although this time, I won't post it unless I finish, and that won't be for a long time, considering that right now, I'm just writing down character descriptions.

I have just been made into an author of my friend, Kathryn's website. You can find it in the links as Wonders With Wings.

The Wortares

The tall creature had on a dark, black robe. The long slender fingers sticking from the sleeves looked like small knifes, sharp as fangs. Inside of the hood, no face could be seen. It was a pool of blackness that looked like it could go on forever. The figure seemed to be gliding, never once touching the ground. Rumor had it that these dreadful shadow’s knife-like fingers could cut, not only through flesh, but through worlds. These creatures meant death.

The Kirels

The small water creature had bluish skin that was nearly purple around its neck. Off of the sides of its body were its legs. At the end of the Kirel’s thin legs, were four fins for hands and feet. Its tail was long and almost like that of an Orca whale. The tips of the tail were colored in a way that stood out a lot. The tips were bright green, the same color of grass when sun shines down on to it. It had a short, stubby neck at the front of its body. Its head was a very strange sight. It had two cat-like ears at the top of the head. Right below, were its large, bulging, green eyes. For its mouth, the creature had a large beak that circled part way around the sides of the head. The beak was slightly raised at the top, like the hump of a camel. The Kirel was a kind, gentle creature. Although, when threatened, could speed through the water like a torpedo.

The Traldars

The monstrous creature was terrifying. It’s leathery, bat-like wings had three, razor sharp talons, at the end of each. All three talons were the size of a large dog, and could crush a man with a single flick. The creature’s wings were powerful enough to rip through a thick tree. And that was just the beginning. At the creature’s feet, the claws could extend like a cat’s, and five times the length of one. The head of the evil figure had the muzzle of a wolf, with long fangs extending like that of a saber toothed tiger’s. It was truly a most terrible creation that many thought not fit for this world. If only the few men who lived to tell the tale knew why this sight seemed so ferocious. What had made the Traldars such angry creatures?


I couldn't sleep last night, so instead of reading (for once), I decided to take out my laptop and start typing up a description of a monster that I made up right there. I decided that I was going to write little descriptive paragraphs and post them here.

Inkspell Part 1

I have just begun reading Inkspell. I haven't gotten into it yet, and it is over 600 pages, so it may take me a few days to read it. Hopefully I'll like it enough to post a synopsis. I'm only in chapter 1 though.

Over the Fence Library

My neighbor, Kathryn, and I have our own library. We made it using her Microsoft Access 2007, and my numerous book collection. We have over 200 books, about 230 of them mine. Our siblings are our customers. To makes sure that they actually read the books, we made tests for them to take. An 80% or higher gets the reader a slip in our drawing for a prize, a tasty one too. So far, only one, Ezra, has gotten a slip, but another, Jordan, is well on his way. Some of the books are signed, and very special to me. I like having this library.

Explore Our Earth!

My good friend, Kathryn, has recently renovated her web sight. Now, it give entries with information on cool animals. You can find Explore Our Earth on my links.

Inkheart Part 1

I have been reading Inkheart by Cornelia Funke for the past week, and I am almost at the end. I hope to finish tonight, so I will probably give you a synopsis of this amazing adventure tomorrow. I hope that you will read it.

The Grey Griffins

The Grey Griffins books, by Derek Benz and J.S. Lewis are amazing, especially if you like fantasy stories. The series consists of three books, Revenge of the Shadow King, Rise of the Black Wolf, Fall of the Templar. This story is about Max Sumner, a boy who is struggling with his rich parents divorce. Then, one night when he is visiting his Grandmother's house, he is chased into the attic by a strange goblin-like creature, a monster that is part of the card game that he and his friends, the Order of the Grey Griffins, play. In the attic, he comes across a large book called the Codex Spiritus. Pretty soon, the creatures from their game begin to come alive, putting everyones lives in jeporady.
