I'm not sure how many changes this story is going to undergo in the coming months. However, I thought I would share some of it with whoever actually reads my journal. This is the prologue...I may add some more chapters, but that will wait until I'm done fixing and finishing.

I was thinking about doing JulNoWriMo, because I've been hashing out this story, but then I realized that I still don't know enough. I know a lot of the back ground of it, and the world building is fairly simplistic, because most of the story takes place on a single space station, but there's a lot more it needs.

So it's back to the drawing board for The Warders. Maybe I'll have the planning stages done for NaNo. I hope so. This story is going to be intense.

In light of having none of my Sacrifice work available, but having my Narnia story: Once A Queen, I am taking this moment to ramble about moveverse Prince Caspian.

My laptop crashed tonight. With my NaNo novel. I'm going to skip to chapter three, because that's about where I was, and write it on my dad's computer and hope that I can rescue those first two chapters at a later date.

So, I didn't work today because we had a 'limited' shift, so instead I did work on my novel. I think I like the routine I have started, which is to write the daily goal, and then more to finish the current scene. Since I've been doing my Narnia research, I have dug up an old, unfinished piece that I have become inspired to work on and am rewriting that as well. And I'm learning to paint.

It just goes to show that days off are dangerous things because they inspire you to over estimate your free time...

Because I haven't fixed the time  on my laptop, I thought it was midnight and wrapped up for the day. It's not. Anyways, that means I have an hour to do more research on my possible new fanfiction subject. (Narnia). And here are the facts from my Day One of NaNo. Complete with excerpts that I liked best.

Title: Sacrifice
Author: Guardian of Hope

Word Count: 1856


     “Easy,” his partner, Reagan, said. “We don’t need an official reprimand for personal commentary over the comm. system again.”
     “Like that’s my fault,” Aadreas said, rolling his eyes, “I’m not the one who does the stupid things around here.”
     “Oh, really?” Reagan replied, his bland tone showing as much amusement as he allowed himself to show.  “Seems to me that there’s a personal file floating around that just might say otherwise.”
     “Just because I’m the one getting punished doesn’t mean I’m the one who did it,” Aadreas retorted.


“Because you two broke into one of the most secure facilities in the galaxy, hijacked one of the most advanced ships in the fleet, evaded the Space Patrol star fighters and made it to the AdonKrev Systems, covered an evacuation and brought the best of the galaxy’s ship builders here.” Mandori replied...

So, about Sacrifice. I decided to make a quick timeline to figure out what's gone on before, and I realized that while I could fit the finished, adapted versions of 'Summer's Boys' and 'Power Plot', it would have to be set before Sacrifice, but it's doable. How cool is that? Thus making me inspired to work out the kinks in Summer's Boys so that when Sacrifice is done with, I can plunge into finishing it and adapting it. So, in December, look to see Summer's Boys finished!

I'm changing my NaNo plot. As much as I like Surrain, I want to do something different, I guess.

Meet: Sacrifice

Two young men who have lost everything but each other must learn to open their hearts after a wayward girl with a whimsical smile dances into their life.

It takes place after an intergalactic war, when these two fighters are chosen to escort a delegate from Earth to the Federation Capital to sign the final treaty, making Earth a member state. The thing is, the 'delegate' is a girl their age, the only daughter of the leader fo the Earth Defense, which was a rebel group that worked with the "aliens" to take back Earth as it fell. What's supposed to be a simple mission, go to Earth, pick up the girl and come back, turns out to be not so simple.

I'm planning for it to be the lead in for the stories I want to spin out of the Brotherhood and Summer's Boys later on.

Well, I've got less than two months before NANO takes over my life yet again, so I'm probably not going to update as much as you people will want. I plan, however, to make sure to complete all the stories I'm working on before NANO, and then post them during NANO so that people can have stories while I work on completing the final rewrite of my novel.

Between that and work, that's pretty much what's going on for me.
