I am trying to prepare myself for NaNoWriMo’s July Camp. As usual, I am behind on my preparations. This time, I figure I will work on Rhianna’s Chalice, since I did not complete it last year.
There is something strange about the story, and it hinders me from completing it. For a guy that posts ‘inspirational’ posts on Instagram, and writes ‘motivational’ posts on his blog, I give up in a hurry sometimes.
So, I figured, why not write this, and talk it out with you all.
The Shunned Dwarves are um, looters, criminals, and outcasts. They can sell goods to the Righteous Dwarves but are unable to enter the cities. All items sold are made outside of the city in an ‘open air’ type of market. The Shunned are allowed no contact with their Righteous family members.
The Righteous Dwarves are snobs. They live in the underground cities of Bal Dahrim, Vernruhm, and Hil Wohrum. Bal Dahrim is governed by Brynja of Clan Lonvari. Vernruhm by Brewmaul of Clan Salmumin Flaskview. Hil Wohrum by Galina of Clan Hokul Cavebender. Renowned for their craftsmanship, they share power with The Elven. They are one-half of The Council. The Righteous Dwarves oversee the economics of Planet Fargard.
The Elven are humanoid type creatures capable of magic. They share power with the Righteous Dwarves and make up the second half of the Council. They are elitist snobs and consider themselves superior to all other races. The Elven are advisors, councilors, politicians, and share status and rank in the military with only The Righteous Dwarves.
Rhianna’s Chalice is the mythical flagon which contains the tears of the universe. Once filled, it overflows causing a catastrophic event which ends life as we know it. It is prophesied only ‘The Chosen’ can save the universe from complete annihilation.
Jayce Wellspring is a monster hunter and prophesied ‘Chosen One’ to save the universe from decimation. Except, he doesn’t give a crap about what happens to the universe, or to the people that corrupt it.
So, as you can see, I have my work cut out for me. I’m not a ‘fantasy’ writer by any stretch of the imagination, although, I’m looking forward to working on it. A month is a long time, and I am sure to learn something.
I’m open to all sorts of advice, so if you have any, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you.
P.S. Don’t be shy. I don’t bite…hard…or often…
