If you’re new to my blog, then let me fill you in. I’ve been hard at work over the past year and a half on writing the first book to a fantasy story that has been on my mind for many years. It all started as a writing assignment in highschool, which I won’t go into here, as it’s been mentioned in older posts. The story is inspired by Norse mythology. The nine realms of Yggdrasil, the world tree, serve as the backdrop to the tale. What I’m not doing is writing a story about the gods, though sometimes they are mentioned in passing. My characters are completely of my own imagination, and any reference to the lore of the north or the gods is done with the utmost respect. Wherever applicable, I seek to stay in line with the lore, which will become more prevalent at a later point in the series. For now, I foresee this amounting to a trilogy, though I am open to the possibility of a longer series if necessary.
Currently, I am writing the final chapter of the first book. And slowly, slowly, it is starting to take shape as my heroine and her dark elven friends creep ever closer to battle. Now, she’s not the sort of heroine out to save the day. All she wants is revenge for her father’s murder, and she swore herself into the service of a dark elven king, who is an enemy of her people, for the sole purpose of achieving that goal. But her sworn enemy is also his enemy, and together, they will fight to defeat their mutual nemesis. However, this battle is only the beginning to a war that will shape the future of all the nine realms; a war that neither Dagmar or her dark elven ally have foreseen.
Now, you’ll have to forgive me for being a terrible blogger, but I promise, my book is of much higher quality than my pathetic attempts at writing blog posts! If you don’t believe me, just stick around for the completion of the book and see for yourself! Nearly there, now! 😉
