literary debut ;-)....


Well...at least on Deviant Art...not me, my son George...
Here's the beginning chapter of a part of a story that he is writing (scroll down). More can be seen HERE.

Also...to the left is his preliminary drawing of the character Myrkr from the story...

(Which means that he is now creating his own drawings and writing the story to go with them...yay!...an astrological note here...this is happening while he is experiencing a long-term Pluto transit to his natal Uranus and Saturn...Pluto transits are transformative transits.)



THUNK. Still quivering slightly, the ornate dark-steel shuriken glinted in the pale morning light, one of the prongs nearly entirely buried in a large knot on the tree's trunk. “Crap,” Jio said under his breath, to no-one in particular. He had miscalculated the distance, and the shuriken had hit slightly below target. No matter, it still had hit the target, even if not quite as perfectly as he had hoped it would. He summoned a small shadowrift in the air to his left, and pulled another shuriken from the pitch-black portal. He seemed to merely twitch for a moment, and with another loud THUNK, this time tinged with the screech of metal on metal, the second shuriken buried itself into the tree and halfway through the now-ruined first shuriken. Jio grinned slightly to himself; he never tired of the feeling of breaking things. It was a rather primitive feeling, but enjoyable none the less. He suppressed his grin before it threatened to widen, and drew another shuriken from the rift.

*shuriken photo added by me for those of us who don't know what it is ;-)...although I'll need it even more for myself, as I am being enlisted into service as a weapon maker for Halloween costumes!
