I'm Back! NaNoWriMo Is Here!

Hey guys!

It's so great to be back and posting here. As you can see, I made a TON of blog updates. New template, graphics, etc. all done by me. It's mainly based off of wolves which I love which you will definitely be seeing more of in my upcoming novels ;)

Anyways, most of you know of NaNoWriMo, which is now only a few days away. This year, I will be taking part in NaNoWriMo along with a few of my friends! Seeing that I am not to far into Divination (12k words), I will be using that as my WriMo novel this year and I will be writing 30k+ words.

Speaking of Divination, it is still in progress but I hope to have it done by the summer of 2013 (or earlier). If you check out the new Children of the Brotherhood tab you will see 3 novels.

Divination, Shadows in the Night, and The Arctic Sword. These are the 3 novels in the Children of the Brotherhood series which I know you guys will love.

Anyways, a few friends of mine just joined the community and they really are amazing people who are amazing writers.

D.S. (Deidre) Devereaux is one of my best friends and she runs the amazing blog DeidreDev's Blog. She is using it specifically for WriMo but I am convincing her to continue using it for her writing in general. She has written fan fiction for games, stories, and much more. I would really appreciate it if you checked her blog out and followed it :)

Ria L.A is another one of my best friends who runs the stupendous blog My Little Bitty Blog. She has tons of amazing posts where she talks about just about everything but specifically writing. Please go check out her outstanding blog and followed it :)

Anyways, it's 12:30 at night and I am really tired while posting this but I really appreciate you guys sticking with me throughout that long break and I can assure you that you will be seeing many more posts in the upcoming future.

Happy Writing!

This. Is. SPARTA!!!

 In the Battle of Thermopylae of 480 BC an alliance of Greek city-states fought the invading Persian army in the mountain pass of Thermopylae. Vastly outnumbered, the Greeks held back the enemy in one of the most famous last stands of history. Persian King Xerxes lead a Army of well over 100,000 (Persian king Xerxes before war has about 170,000 army) men to Greece and was confronted by 300 Spartans, 700 Thespians and other Slave soldiers. Xerxes waited for 10 days for King Leonidas to surrender or withdrawleft with no options he moved. The battle lasted for about 3 days and after which all 300 Spartans were killed. The Spartan defeat was not the one expected, as a local shepherd, named Ephialtes, defected to the Persians and informed Xerxes of a separate path through Thermopylae, which the Persians could use to outflank the Greeks.

A local station decides to hire him and his sidekick, Garth, to do their show professionally and Wayne & Garth find that it is no longer the same. Wayne falls for a bass guitarist and uses his and Garth's Video contacts to help her career along, knowing that Ben Oliver, the sleazy advertising guy who is ruining their show will probably take her away from him if they fail.

A-Z Challenge: Vantage Point

U.S. President Henry Ashton (William Hurt) attends a political summit in Salamanca, Spain to promote an international treaty. Displayed with eight differing viewpoints, an assassination attempt on the president occurs, relayed in a time span of 23 minutes. Each time the events unfold from the beginning, a new vantage point is shown revealing additional details, which ultimately completes the story of what actually took place during the incident.[2]
From the first vantage point, GNN producer Rex Brooks (Sigourney Weaver), directs various media personnel from a mobile television studio as the president arrives at the gathering. Mayor De Soto (Jose Carlos Rodriguez) delivers a short speech and then introduces the president, who is shot twice as he greets the crowd from the podium. An explosion outside the plaza soon follows. Moments later, the podium itself is destroyed by a secondary explosion, killing and injuring numerous people. As the smoke clears, GNN reporter Angie Jones (Zoe Saldana) is seen lying dead in the rubble.

Pretty nifty movie I must say :) I have it at home and I always love watching it. If your into this kind of stuff, you should really check it out. It's basically James Bond meets Mission Impossible :P

A-Z Challenge: Quantum of Solace

*James Bond Music Starts Playing*

Welcome to MI6. I am agent 007 and i'm here to tell you about my movie, Quantum of Solace.

Is there solace in revenge? Myself and "M" sniff a shadowy international network of power and corruption reaping billions. As I pursue the agents of an assassination attempt on "M," all roads lead to Dominic Greene, a world-renowned developer of green technology. Greene, a nasty piece of work, is intent on securing a barren area of Bolivia in exchange for assisting a strongman stage a coup there. The CIA looks the other way, and only I, James Bond, with help from a retired spy and from a mysterious beauty, stands in Greene's way. "M" wonders if she can trust me, or if vengeance possesses me. Beyond that, can anyone drawn to me live to tell the tale?

Basically, I have to go and stop Greene and hopefully with some help, I can overcome Greene and bring a stop to him. 

Do you think I have what it takes? I sure do.

Here's my movie trailer

A-Z Challenge: Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief

Rick Riordan's series, Percy Jackson is what got me all started in writing. Mythology is my style. Aside from being my inspiration, he has inspired many others with his writing and has even got his novel The Lightning Thief turned into a movie!!! Yea it didn't get the best ratings but it's still an amazing movie that I always love watching :)

When his lightning bolt is stolen, Zeus accuses Poseidon's son, Percy Jackson, and gives Poseidon's son fourteen days to return it, otherwise he will initiate a war amongst the gods. Meanwhile the teenager, Percy, who is dyslexic and has ADHD is visiting The Museum of Metropolitan of Art and is attacked by a Fury disguised in his teacher. His crippled best friend Grover reveals that Percy is a demigod and that he is his protector and his teacher Mr Brunner gives him a pen telling him that it is a powerful weapon. They go to Percy's house and together with his mother Sally they drive to the Camp Half-Blood. However Sally is attacked by a Minotaur and vanishes before Percy can help her. In the camp, Percy befriends the gorgeous Annabeth; when they are attacked by Hades who wants the lighting bolt for himself, Percy discovers that his mother is in the Underworld with Hades. Percy decides to travel on a dangerous quest to retrieve the lightning bolt and save his mother...

Overall, amazing movie that if you haven't seen, you must watch! :)

A-Z Challenge: Olivia Loupe

For today's A-Z Post, I decided to take a break from the movie theme and introduce you to the newest character in Divination... Olivia Loupe.

Olivia is a greek demi-god who is brought into the story when Ryan, Saran, and Zack go train with the Greeks. Olivia is the daughter of Aphrodite who is the goddess of beauty. Olivia is known for her amazing personality and sense of style as well as being the top archer. Olivia's hight is 5'1 and she has smooth dark-blond hair which goes well with her aqua-colored eyes. She is usually seen wearing a purple tank-top with jeans.

When Ryan first meets Olivia, he realizes that love at first sight is possible. Olivia does not know that Ryan likes her but throughout the course of a few days, Olivia catches on to Ryan's hints. Since they met, Olivia has had feelings for Ryan yet she didn't know if he felt the same way so she kept them in and didn't express them. Finding out that Ryan had feelings for her made Olivia feel like she was loved and this would later on lead to a special bond between the two of them.

Now that you have a little insight about Olivia, let me tell you a little secret.

Some of the characters and scenes in the novel are based off of my life and real people. No, this does not mean someone has the name Ryan Storm but his personality and characteristics are based off of someone in real life. Basically, I have added tidbits of my life into Divination to give it a unique feel. I know some authors don't recomend this but it's something I wanted to try and it also helps me savor memories etc.

So since this is an A-Z post... I have to have an A-Z Question, right? ;)

A-Z Question:
What do you think of Olivia? What are your predictions as to what will happen between Ryan and Olivia? How do you think her role will impact Divination?

Thanks for reading my post and stay tuned because tomorrow, another Demi-God will visit the blog but this one's had a whole series and a movie based on him :D *cough cough* Rick Riordan=author ;)

Thanks again for reading :)

A-Z Challenge: Night at the Museum

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to spend the night at a museum? Well Ben Stiller knows just how it's like.

So here,s a quick summary of the first movie which was amazing! I liked it more then the second because the first was more meaningful and just was a new thing while the second was basically a copy of the first.

In New York, unemployed and divorced Larry Daley is a complete loser. His son Nick is very disappointed with his father who is going to be evicted. Larry accepts the job of night watchman in the Museum of Natural History and takes the place of three old security guards that have just retired in order to raise some money and pay his bills. On his first shift, Larry soon realizes that everything at the museum is not as it seems as the statues begin to come to life after the sun sets. The Museum transforms into complete chaos with the inexperienced Larry in charge as he learns that an old Egyptian stone that came to the Museum in 1950 brings these statues to life until dawn. When Larry brings his son to spend a night with him, the three old guards break into the Museum to try to steal the magical stone. Larry organizes all the historic characters to help him stop the criminals and save the museum.

A-Z Challenge (Numbers): 1492

Conquest of Paradise

1492: Conquest of Paradise, is the story of Christopher Columbus and his crew and the discovery of the America's.The scenery is impressive, including some of Spain's grandest old palaces and cathedrals. The film's other principal location was Costa Rica, which passes not only for all of the various islands Columbus visited, but also for Palos, the small Spanish port from which Columbus sailed on his first voyage. It's a very pretty little port, if somewhat tropical for Spain.                                    
The special effects are also good, especially a hurricane that sweeps down on Columbus at one point as if it were the hand of God, though just what God might be thinking remains as fuzzy as the ideas of the film makers. Vangelis, the composer, supplies the music, which often suggests the upbeat theme he wrote for "Chariots of Fire."

1492 has been rated PG-13 (Parents strongly cautioned), shows heretics being burned at the stake and scenes of bloody battle and mayhem. 

I personally love the main music. It was my uncles entrance song at his wedding and it just is so mesmerizing... I love to play this on piano because it just is so calm and heavenly in a ways.

Have you seen 1492? If so, what is your favorite scene from it and why?

A-Z Challenge: Lord of The Rings


By far the greatest trilogy in the history of man kind and Middle Earth. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy is one of the greats. I personally spend countless hours listening to the music from the movies while doing my homework because it is so peaceful. The theme is based in Middle Earth where the one ring created by Sauron, in the pits of Mount Doom, has risen into the hands of Frodo Baggins who must take it back to Mount Doom and toss it into the fires to destroy it. Throughout his journey, he encounters many friends and foes and is always traveling with his brother-like friend, Samwise 'Sam' Gamgee. Continuously they are assisted by Gollum who was a hobbit gone bad and turned into a malicious creature due to the ring. "My.... precious....."

The Fellowship of the Ring:
Frodo and Sam of The Shire journey with eight companions to the fires of Mount Doom to destroy the One Ring and the dark lord Sauron forever.

The Two Towers:
While Frodo and Sam edge closer to Mordor with the help of the shifty Gollum, the divided fellowship makes a stand against Sauron's new ally, Saruman, and his hordes of Isengard.

The Return of the King:
Aragorn leads the World of Men against Sauron's army to draw the dark lord's gaze from Frodo and Sam who are on the doorstep of Mount Doom with the One Ring.

If you remember my Versatile Blogger Award post, at the end I included tidbits of the shire and nature. It is amazing how much you get out of a movie!

Go grab your popcorn because it's...... TRAILER TIME!!! :D
