Since I had walking pneumonia I had the opportunity to sit on the couch in a coma and watch a few movies for the second or third or fiftieth time. The movie, Troy, starring Brad Pitt was one of those movies I watched yet again. I often dream about a story that takes place in another world that has two heroes like Hector and Achilles fighting to the death over and over. I started creating that world,Trivarian, and really only know it has two moons and the sun gives off an orange coloring during the day. There is a civil war between two powers that want control over the small country of Uforia (yes, that's the way I spell it). The two men, Darfarus and I have absolutely no idea yet, end up dying at the hands of revenge. They end up in some sort of purgatory where they continue to fight due to their hatred for each other, and in this sort of underworld the battle never ends. I'm still playing with the end. I'm not sure if this story is going to be about "loving your enemies" like some radical dude over 2000 years ago tried to get us to understand. Or perhaps it's just about forgiveness. Or, maybe it will be a dark ending that leaves the reader with a cautionary tale about what could happen if you keep hate in your heart.
I'm still waiting for my manuscript back from the editor. I'm starting to get excited about looking at the story once again. I believe the time off will be good. I have recently purchased some ISBN numbers and a couple of bar codes. I've heard some writers state that you don't even need the numbers. I've read some articles on the Internet that say you truly can't live without them. I've been to my share of bookstores. It would seem as someone who's asking them to sell my product I should make that as easy as possible. Again, my father's voice rings in my head.
That is all for now. I wish each and every one of you a happy Thanksgiving. I can't believe Christmas is just around the corner. Until next time, God bless…
