With that being said, I've hit the "wall" a few times and I usually need to reevaluate where my story has gone wrong and correct it. Sometimes it's just a matter of tweaking an outline or finding plot holes, but other times it's just taking a break from the writing to let the brain rest and come back to it afterwards.(less)

Hi Lena,

The map was made by an artist on Fiverr.com who's username is metruis. He has an extensive portfolio and does some great work. I was very pleased with how he transformed my rough sketch of Azuleah into something beautiful and professional. He'll definitely be my go-to cartographer for future works.(less)

“Happiness is not only a hope, but also in some strange manner a memory ... we are all kings in exile.”
G.K. Chesterton, The Thing: Why I am a Catholic

“The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”
Toni Morrison

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.
"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
