Okay, maybe I lied when I said that this story was about over, but I really thought it was.  But now, here's more.  I'm really enjoying writing this story, although it is making me venture into some new and difficult territory concerning vampires and time-travel (never thought I would say that about a story about Lucius Malfoy).

New Chapter:

From the beginning:

I must learn to stop this disappearing act

I really am alive and well.  Very well, actually - life is looking brighter and brighter.  Despite some serious setbacks, even greater opportunities have arisen.

Due to actually finding some time to really sit down to write, I have begun writing an original novel loosely based on the Rise of Libertas.  I really hope that writer's block will stay away and allow me to finish this and one day publish it.  I'm loving the return of my artistic mood.  Maybe I'll dig out my pencils and paint again and try my hand at some traditional art (not that I was ever that great of an artist, but it's fun).

Anyway, life is wonderful and my muse has returned.  So yay!

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Although less permanent-than-usual writer's block struck this month, I have begun working on writing once again, resulting in the update of Albus Severus Potter and the Nightfire Cult:

Also, I've been working on some character templates and brainstorming ideas for two different novels I am working on, which makes me feel rather accomplished.

Hope the first month of this new (final?) year is going well for everyone!
Chapter 14 of Not a Dream is posted!  This story is quite nearly complete.


Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, everyone, and happy holidays!

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Christmas with family and friends, and that this is the best Christmas yet.  May family feuds disappear, at least for this day.

I went to a beautiful candlelit service last night, and it was just wonderful.  This is the first Christmas I've spent with my parents in two years, and it is going surprisingly well and I am looking forward to the rest of today.

Once again, Merry Christmas!!
I really need to focus this creative energy on some original works, but for now, here is another chapter of ASP.  Chapter 8:  Moaning Myrtle:

I've just posted Chapter 13 of Not a Dream.  The story is nearing an end.  I think that there will be another two chapters following this one.  This was originally going to be a rather short chapter story - I can't believe it's already reached over 25,000 words!  If only I could be this prolific with my original works.

Not a Dream, Chapter 13:  New Life:

Edit:  Finally decided that I needed a Not a Dream icon, just because.  Thus:

I would also like to add that I am beyond excited about this:
The Hobbit is probably my favorite book of all time, and I have been waiting eagerly for this ever since the Lord of the Rings movies.  I shall have to devote time to rereading all things Tolkien and watching the LOTR movies and playing the LOTR and the Hobbit games in preparation! xD
I cannot believe that I actually managed to write even more.  I hope I can keep this up!

Chapter 7:  Halloween posted!
