You can find the first segment,
Wind, here.

Purpose
The "purpose" for my writing is to entertain and to allow me to express my creativity.

Recurring Themes
I focus alot on Point of View, because I believe it is one of the elements of story writing that is to often overlooked for its comparative impact. In other words, I think POV makes a big difference but is not often talked about or focused on. I also favor ideas about the three "Fs": forgiveness, family, and focus. Focus means job, path or who one serves and in what way. I often expand "family" to include friendship and I hope to explore many types of familial relationships in my writing. "Forgiveness" includes forgiving those who do not repent and are not sorry as well as forgiving ones self. I also try to work with emotions as they actually are: confusing and capricious. Often, my characters will seem two-faced and unsure; well, who isn't?


Origin
I actually began writing "The Darkfordian Chronicles" when I began playing neopets a few years ago. An entire manuscript was written within my first year; I am actually using this manuscript as a base now and adding additional details and deleting certain pieces which no longer fit.


Plot/Story Line and Writing System
As I indicated above, the basic plot/time line is already finished. However, please remember that this is just a very rough draft and I usually rewrite that draft on paper first, to fix the majority of the errors and make the segment more engaging. I also involve elements that have sprung up in Neopia since thes. ideas are a little outdated,


Editing
Something I'm horrible at. I'll get to that.


Influences
Frankly, my writing is influenced by almost every facet of my life, but there are a few that stand out more than others. Some of the most influential things would be: The movie The Nightmare Before Christmas written by Tim Burton, the two years of Latin I took in high school, Gothic architecture, and my perception of human nature and thought. Influential to a lesser extent but still enough to be noted here: The Harry Potter series of books by J.K. Rowling, many Frank Peretti books, and my family life.


What TDC is About
The basic plot is this: Many lives come together through a series of interrelated events (some forethought, some random) creating the force that Darkford needs to be able to defend the Haunted Woods and Neopia as a whole from an ancient threat. Each character has an individual story line and a place in the final battle, but you'll just have to read to find out what that is. :)
