And somehow I’m already winning! Just goes to prove that preparing for months and over analyzing your plot and notes really does pay off. As of today, I have written around 58K and my aim is around 75K, though at this rate, it might be pushing towards 85K. It’s getting close to the end, but there is still a lot that has to happen. I’m so excited to finish and start editing! I’ll be sure to share snippets from time to time.
Here is my…erm, summary? It’s really just an introduction to the world.
The Keeper of Ailenor. The fate giver of Eviryia. Whomever she kisses gains unknown power over his enemies to claim peace for the kingdom, reigning with wisdom. The Keeper’s task is to find the true king among the people, no matter how long it takes. For a purpose such as this, the Keeper is immortal, undying until she completes her quest or fails. If she were to deny fate and empower a false king, whether by force or by will, a dark shadow would fall over the capital, Ailenor. The false king would be given this unknown power until his death and the birth of a new Keeper. Until then, Eviryia would be at the mercy of a tyrant. The Keeper, upon failing her life quest, would perish and her soul would not have peace until the true king ruled Eviryia once again.
And so, daughters of Keepers have guided the throne of Ailenor with diligence and perseverance for ages and Eviryia has lived in an era of peace. But fate grows weary when it waits upon destiny.

So, that’s been my life this first week of November and it has been quite excited, though little sewing.
I am working on a commission now though and once I get my new camera this weekend, I’ll upload some pictures so you can guess what cosplay it is 😉
Still around? Here is a wedding sneak peak! The photos finally came!
