The Legend of the Scattered by AnUnfoldedPaperTiger
The Legend of the Scattered
Behold, the Grand Sage of Sight, as he regals his nephew, the Ruby Petite, with the climax of a battle that had ravaged the lands where they stood. To the left, the Pale Appellation prepares to render the his adversary, the Grey Slab, completely immobile and idle with a burst of fire meant to detonate a collection of Rose Sitrus Schlucks that lay beneath them. The Grey Slab stands with a counterattack, stolen walkers welded and tied together by creatures of his own invention, which will release a blast of wind that shall return the Pale's attack, like a flood, and scorch his entire being off of his cliff. But the Pale has his own response; behind him, a tower armed with the iciest, most deathly chilled substance known to man and spirit has been contained, and if he cannot stick the Slab where he stands, he will freeze him to his CPU.

To the right, the great general, Bisect Quarter, has conquered his old student, the Joint, with his weapon only weakly held in his grasp. Injured by the fight, the general prepares to deal the final strike, while Joint can only sit and bide his time. He waits for his master to step down, that he might finally seal his great body together, shut and rigid, and assist his ally Slab in his own fight.

The voices from Sight conglomerate, as Petite watches with awe, its screen blank with shock and amazement. It tries to take in the lessons that Sight repeats, but can only wonder of the final outcome to be spoken.

Yes, this is cliched and expected and completely predictable. I was freaking bored.

Yes, the Wayword Writer has been bored. I know I'm in a mentor's program and that I need to get writing on both the short stories I'm working on and any assignments that come from said program, but dang it, I get bored too! And when I'm bored, I don't usually do anything that a sensible person on this site would do. I don't draw or play music or start duct-taping poker cards to the walls or trying to cut strawberries with paper airplane darts (I guess?), but I did do something. I created a war zone out of the random bits and bobs that have turned my desk into a space that I don't think anyone can make use of. I'll have photos of what it looks like in a bit, and before you ask: yes. The yoyo is part of the set-up, and he does have a personality.

This is the Wayword Writer saying SOMEBODY TEACH ME SOMETHING.
The boy rushes towards the streets,
Sprinting, leaping, half-stepping
Towards the midnight finale lights ahead.
He is breathless, chasing a wind that
Has roped his neck and is daring him to move
Faster. But he is careful; afraid that he
Might slip on the road that leads him to
The light. But when he reaches it, he forgets;
Stunned by the checkerboard floors stained,
Soaked with champagne and starlight.
The swan and peacock laced patrons rising
With the smoke of their cigars, he
Races forth to join them, and forgets
Not to slip on the tile.
Rushing Towards Tile
Hey guys. The Wayword Writer back with a bit of poetry while I'm still editing my next short story (and working on yet another one, as well). I'm sorry that I can't keep you guys supplied with a fairly steady load of stories, but have this to ponder while I'm predisposed. So many of us are desperate to reach some land of riches, fame, wondrous food and raucous applause so loud that we cannot hear ourselves clapping along. But, do we forget why or how we got there, if we ever do? Do we remind ourselves to be prudent and appropriate where class and accomplishments are all the famous tend to have? Be wary of the golden castles and tile floors, darlings. I hear they're fairly slick...

Yes, I'm a day late. Yes, I'm lazy. YES, I'm being unnecessarily contrary by posting this a day later than everybody else and, in doing so, I attract hipsters. But that's something to be argued a different day. For now, a new year is upon us! Possibilities to ruin our liv- wait, wrong direction. What I meant to say was that possibilities to enhance our lives are upon us! Stories, and worlds, and movies! Words and wanderings, drinks and decadence! The wind is rising! We must try to live! Take flight, even if it is but a flutter. I know that I myself failed to reach the heights I demanded of myself the year prior, but I must seek the warm winds once more. Others will walk towards the cold waters, and some to tread and scatter the earth, plucking up the colors within its cracks and sharing it with its brothers and sisters! For now, I rest, and shall awake tomorrow to begin a transfer of a draft, which I will send off to someone to edit. For now, this is The Wayword Wrier saying, how do you measure a year?

In word counts, in book sales?
In panic or hapless fury?
In beer cans? Bottles?
In final success?

In 525,600 minutes, how do you measure a walk towards the rest?

A slightly less clever man than a clever man, I'm just the writer trying to writer himself, first off, a good bio, and second off, a place in the history books. Give a lexicon and I will weave for you tales that will sing aria's of imagination and stardust. You wanna ride with me? You best be ready to surf the winds because my head's in the cloud's an the only time when it lands is when I go to dream, baby. If you think you can handle that, then climb on board and set your compass to wherever you so please.

To those of you who wish to contact me, my email addresses can be found as such.

Oh, it's nothing. Really, your artwork is actually similar to the illustrations of this series I'm reading, so it's a welcome palette whenever I see it. Gives me ideas; helps me think.

Ah, no problem. I'm always trying to make sure that I'm showing rather than telling, so having a guide helps.

Hi, and welcome to :iconthewrittenrevolution: theWrittenRevolution!
There are lots of things you can get involved in:

Bullet; Red we post monthly writing prompts (that include prizes, and a chat event during the month to help people with their pieces),

Bullet; Black publishing opportunities from other sites (whenever we come across one!),

Bullet; White we have a monthly feature that includes a deserving member, two of the best critiques we've seen during the month, and two helpful writing resources,

Bullet; Red a monthly affiliates feature of two Literature groups,

Bullet; Black and a biweekly-ish article in which one of our admins gives an in-depth critique to one of our members' work that hasn't received much feedback.


We'll soon be reviving our chatroom with weekly activities, so stay tuned for that too. :D (Big Grin)

We also have Facebook and Twitter accounts. On our profile page you will find links to the latest of all the activities I listed up here and to our social networks that will help you keep updated, so feel free to look around and ask if you have any questions, we're here to help!

Welcome to the revolution. I salute you!
