First half of 'The Goblin's Tale' completed!

Well, It's been over eight months since I started my Dark Fairy Tale 'The Goblin Tale' and I'm happy to say that is half way completed. Needless to say, It's a testament to will and perseverance to say the least. I had been working two jobs for the majority of time on it, and some times I would be so exhausted I couldn't keep my eyes open yet I would always find time to write, even if it was only a few paragraphs. I enjoy the direction the tale has gone, something I couldn't possibly have planned for in the beginning.
A writer writes, always. And I feel the worst step one can make in life is no step at all. That being said, I have no idea how much longer the rest of the story will take to complete nor do I know if it is going to take a million strange turns. As long as it turns out to be what I consider a masterpiece, it really doesn't matter.

Spain in August!

Sometimes, You have to take life by the proverbial horns. Aside from working a strenuous full time job and working on my new dark fairy-tale, I have planned a trip to Seville, Spain in August. I know I have made several plans for trips in the past that never fell through  but this time, I'm literally making myself go. I don't yet know what has captivated more about Spain: Maybe it's the history, the culture, the food and wine, the architecture, I can't put my exact finger on it. One thing is for sure, few places in the world have the allure Spain does. Then there's the Macabre aspect of it. Spain was home to the Spanish Inquisition, The religious order responsible for some of the grisliest tortures and who knows how many killings in the Middle Ages. I've wanted to go for ages yet life always seemed to prevent me. To me, the best part of all of it I'll have plenty more of what I consider what is best to collect in life: Memories.
