Reaching The End

I finally rewrote the end of the novel for the second draft. In the end, it’s far closer to what I wanted than what I had originally. It actually feels like the end of a book this time. Is it emotional? Oh yes. Does it leave room for a second book? Definitely. Am I asking too many questions? Most certainly. Should I stop asking them? Ok, ok, fine.

Anyway, I’m much happier with the end product than I was before. I still have tons of stuff to edit. About 50-100 pages, to be precise. It’s actually far less than I’m making it out to be, but it’s a decent sum. 

In case y’all want a real emotional trip, here’s link to the song I listened to while writing the end. 

It’s a trip to Sad-Mart, where your greeters are Melancholy and Dismay.

It’s pretty sad.

In good news, I have recently arrived at school for my senior year at good old Liberty University! I have an excellent year in front of me, mainly because I never have to wake up before 9:30 for any reason whatsoever. I mean, I still do because they give me bacon if I come to breakfast, but I don’t have to. Technically.

This is the life of a Fine Arts student. 

In the meantime, I plan to raise awareness of the awesome Dark Veil Saga by creating the life size version of “Leviathan Killer” in some media besides metal. I don’t want to kill anyone by fake-stabbing them, which is the ultimate purpose of this endeavor.

I also now have an Instagram (sirgabrielpenn) so you should all follow me for cool book/writing/reading stuff! I’m super sorry about those awards and challenges I’ve missed recently, so now that I have so much time I’m going to try to get to some of them. “Try” is the key word. There’s a lot of them.

Expect a revamping of short stories and Faith Friday soon!!

Almost 100 Followers!!

I am one follower away from having 100 FOLLOWERS! For a guy who basically only posts once every other day, this is pretty darn impressive. I eagerly await the next one, so I can throw a mini-party in my dorm room.

For those who do not know what this blog is about, I’m currently writing a fantasy novel while in college. No, not a short story, not novella… novel. So my life is basically a mixture of me writing an epic fantasy whilst balancing friendships and learning things about how to live.

in this blog, I write news about the book, poetry, and writing wisdom I have earned through lots of trial and error. (Yes, I use the Oxford comma. The Oxford comma trumps all.) I’ll be posting more college stories soon as well. That was the original intent of the blog, really. Writing tips just kind of took over after that. But that will be fixed.

Anyway, if you wanna get jiggy with it, just click on that “follow” button. Unless you are already following, then please don’t click it. Then I would lose you. But I would remember you forever, anyway. Let that guilt trip save you from the dreaded “unfollow” button.

So follow me! Let’s go on a journey together!
