I have only just started, But I am having fun writing it. after a good critique of my first two chapters I have more confidence in my ability to write a book. Some of it needs to change because its not quit right, but the rest it very good. I would like to share a bit of my first chapter (first draft) with you.
chapter one My name is Sora, I was born the day the doors opened. So my birthday goes unnoticed every year, which is fine with me. I never have understood birthday celebrations, it's only the passing of another year. Besides age is nothing but a number, its what is in your heart and mind. You can be 45 and still be just like a child. How you carry yourself, the way you think, the path in life you choose, everything you say and do, we are our actions not our age. Like my dear uncle Rasputin, he throws fits like a child. This year I turn nineteen, no mater what happens I know I have a job to do. Take my father's place and lead our kind into battle for the future of all. Most start there training when finished with school, but my uncle has kept me away from it all “for the memory of your father” he keeps saying. So when I take over I'll only have a short time to train with the others. None of them think I can do the job, mainly because I've never trained with them. What not a single one of them knows is, I have a special place no one else knows about, my very own oasis I spend all my spare time in, thinking and training. This week is the festival that is thrown every year in celebration of the day the door opened, the day our thousand year imprisonment underground ended. Let me explain how we got here, how the human race ran deep in the earth from our own mistakes, from the destruction we knew we would do. How human kind changed on the genetic level, and why we now have yet another war coming. Can human kind live without war or violence? Will we ever find peace and happiness, or one day destroy everyone and everything on this planet. We almost did over a thousand years ago, why not again. I intend to make sure it never happens.
