He's just the kind of man
You hear about
Who leaves his family for
An easy out
They never saw the signs
He never said a word
He couldn't take another day...

Carry me to the shoreline
Bury me in the sand
Walk me across the water
And maybe you'll understand

Once the stone you're crawling under
Is lifted off your shoulders
Once the cloud that's raining
Over your head disappears
The noise that you'll hear
Is the crashing down of hollow years

From my fantasy novel that I've set aside...

"How can you raeth be so cold?"
"Cold? You call us that simply because we do not coddle to the weak. And by doing so, we make them strong. When you give in to the weakness of your heart you only hinder your brothers. Whereas we raeth lift them up from the ground and force them to rise to greatness. Can an elf claim that?"
"At least an elf can claim compassion, love, and fellowship for his brother."
"You think I do not love my brother? I love him so much that I will not let him fail."

Sounds familiar...

I only have about half of one chapter written, and then part of another, and random sections of dialogue, hehe. So it's not exactly in readable condition. I've been (or should be at least) working on another fantasy story though, in which I'm still stuck somewhere in the first chapter. And I'm probably just going to end up rewriting the whole thing anyway, bleh! At some point, I'm sure inspiration will strike...

How's this for inspiration?
I've got just the whip to help you get to writing, wench! I'll be the little sadist for you that I've always needed for my own writing. You will write . . . which are you more afraid of? This cat o' nine tails with the metal barbs? Or writing?

::giggles and winks::

I do it because I want you to succeed. No matter how much that scares you.
