At risk of sounding a bit special by repeating the very title you just read, I’m going to skip the second “welcome” and jump right down the intro…
First and foremost, I would like to thank you for joining me on this journey; well… those of you that didn’t end up on this page by accident anyways, the rest of you; let me save you some time, no this isn’t a porn site, neither is it a mindless drone Facebook equivalent.
“Then what is it?” I hear you ask? For, of course… surely there is nothing else out there on the World Wide Web! Alas my new friends… you are wrong. This blog is a journey, a journey from point A and onwards, where it leads? Perhaps to misery, disappointment and self-loathing; but perhaps not, perhaps to riches and fame, giggles and snicklewotsits!
“You still haven’t told us what the hell you’re actually on about; you’re just being cryptic to keep me reading. Stop it.” Sorry. My name is Matt, and this blog is a creation born of spontaneity, creativity… and yes, admittedly a little bit of boredom… this Blog will document my journey upon the completion of my fantasy novel “Broken Scion”, and the no doubt painstaking road to becoming a published author.
“How do you know you’re going to get published? Your story could be a pile of floor candy!” Well… thanks for the vote of confidence < (Insert heavy sarcasm here) but yes, I suppose you’re right. Of course I think my books brilliant, if not the best thing ever put to paper, but at the same time I can appreciate that feeling to be akin to a new Father with a hideous baby boy, thinking the little gremlin is the most beautiful child he has ever laid eyes upon. Wrong. So yes, I can see your point… regardless, should my dreams flop to the hard, unrelenting floor, only to be stomped upon by your dirty great boot… then at least it’ll make a good read and give you something to laugh at.
Of course, I’m not always going to have something to update all of you hideous pessimists on; therefore, being an avid reader of the fantasy genre myself, not to mention a self-proclaimed review King…. well… perhaps not “King” per say… seeing as I’ve actually never attempted to review a book, like, ever. BUT, I am an extremely opinionated and fantastically funny (If I do say so myself) person, and to be honest, what have you really got to lose?
All jokes aside, I do hope that you enjoy what I write; and even if you don’t like me, or my writing style, I hope to fill this space with tips, tricks and information that is not usually immediately available to the newly budding author… in a way, think of this as your cheat sheet, all the research is done for you in a step by step blog-guide as i progress in real time; and please, don’t be shy… drop me a post to say Hi!
