Ch 5 - Complete.

^ You must be wondering, who this is.
You, my friends, are looking at my real life inspiration for the character of Troy Fisher. This guy is absolutely hilarious - I've known him since the beginning of school. He probably would be honored to know I've made a character inspired by his antics.

Don't let this image be stuck in your head when you think of Troy, though! LOL.

That's how it goes when I create original characters. They're almost always based off someone I know, whether they're one of my best friends or someone I rarely speak to. Not all characters, but most of them carry a trait or two of someone I know.

But yes, Chapter 5 is completed, and I think it's safe to say that now I know exactly where I'm going with this story. Before, I had a few ideas here and there, but I think I could actually plan the whole thing out.

Which is good!!

Posted Chapter 4 last night. So far it seems well recieved. I've got less than a 1000 words written for 5, so I really got to get going - I'm starting to fall back to that state where I post a chapter and have the next one unwritten.
I at least want to be a couple of chapters ahead.

I'm typing feverishly away to try and finish Chapter 4 so I can begin 5. (Well, duh). Besides writing LOAS: ATW, I also have Chapter 2 of Return to Sanghelios. And a Drama project. And 8 IB Art Projects. And a Math test tomorrow. And a Canadian History test monday. And recently, I've recieved the news that I won't be getting my braces off until February (originally was December).

Pick one word to describe your life right now?:


But alas, my readers, I'll keep on writing.

My friend Alexis said the funniest / most suggestive thing to me about Master Chief in Math class today. It made learning about finding angles inside of circles or whatever the fuck a lot more amusing.

I won't repeat it though. >:)

Master Chief is a Millionare...whut?

Yeah, it's true. Or, at least I think.

I found this site that told me the yearly pay of a Master Chief Petty Officer (although it's not for the 26th Century of course). On average, a MC makes $92,686 US a year. I put that into the calculator, and multiplied it by the years John was involved in the war with the rank of a MC (27 years), and by 2552, he would have made $2,502,522 US (21st cen currency).

So, John is a millionare!

Hmm, this could provide fuel for a future chapter when John takes Renee with him to withdraw some money from his bank account...

At least I know there won't be any poverty restrictions on the couples' lifestyle! Hehe.

As for the story itself, I posted Chapter 3 tonight and have almost completed Chapter 4, which should be up this time next week.

Today is the day

First chapter of Love of a Spartan: After the War has been posted! And so far, is getting positive feedback.

As well, I got a chance to brainstorm today while I suffered through double math (Math is my worst subject in school). The ideas are quite interesting, and they will allow me to thread some action into the story. I won't say much yet though.

I like surprises, maybe you do too?
