Notes: I fudged the prompt a little. Sorry. And I'm not sure if I like this or not, but it's what came to me. Nalia and Agrad are weird from third person...

Ahrianna was Empress of the Fae for a mere twenty years before madness gripped the Empire and her sisters were assassinated, leaving her to find some way to hide and to survive.
Julian and Kaed have somehow become friends after a devastating mutual loss, but their friendship could bring new disasters, including the end of the world.
Aral's little brother is dying of a mystical malady, and her only hope of saving him may be to kill the gods themselves.
Bledig is a young werewolf, expected to lead his tribe and somehow fill the giant shoes of his childhood hero, Lee.
Cynfael is a young Fae, raised in secret by Lord High Mage Gwydion, to some day bring hope to his grandfather's kingdom, but can the half-breed Fae mage be trusted?

They're all separate, and in the end some shall never even meet, but they're all steps on The Dreamer's Staircase.

The short story compilation I'll be writing this month will contain characters and worlds either created for the story as I'm writing, or written in my original works before.

If you think you might be interested in reading my NaNo project this year, let me know here. I'll be posting a story a day, and they will be of varying lengths.

Any sort of feedback will be loved on and cherished and taken to heart, even if I go all absent-minded and don't reply, as always.

Wish me luck!

Chapters

In my latest story, Elemental, I just followed a 5,000 word chapter with one that's not even 1,500 words. It's barely a scene, let alone a chapter, but it feels right to end it there.

I'm not sure if I'll keep the current format for chapters. Right now, they're parts...and they're just "part one" and "part two". No chapter titles or anything, though I'm trying to make the first lines of each chapter memorable. Just a little something that will stand out and differentiate one from another.

The second chapter doesn't have much "can't put it down" feel to it, though, IMO. I'm not sure what to do with it. After the praise I got for the first chapter, I'm worried about how it will be received. On the other hand, the first chapter ends with a tragedy and a fair bit of tension, and I think I need this chapter to balance that one.

I suppose I'll have to write the third chapter with a little more movement, but not too much. I have to build it back up to an interesting pace without making the second chapter look completely out of place.

Has anyone else run into something like this while they're writing? Does it pan out for you, or do you go back later and think you should tack on the short chapter to something larger?

How come nobody yelled at me, huh? lol

Anyway, this is as far as I got before I stalled out a little and decided to flesh out the world and characters a bit more before going on. If you have questions or suggestions or just want me to hurry up and post more, don't hesitate. ^_^

That said, I'm not sure what to think about this part. We'll see what becomes of it, right? Right.

Perhaps 'soon' is completely relative to my perspective. )

If I don't update this, yell at me. Yell a lot. Pester me. Remind me I'm trying to treat this like a NaNo thing, because I am. Only...with quality writing instead. ^_~

Constructive criticism is welcome. I might cry a little, but I can't improve if it doesn't sting.

And, of course, this is an original story so...if you want to read more than this first part, comment to me and I will add you to the filter.
