I finally, finally finished the first chapter of Path of shadows yesterday (To my liking that is, this is the first time I've actualy felt that it was complete) and although I will need to write the appropriate prologue in order to fill in the tiny gaps I am very proud of it. I guess it is sort of a milestone for me, my brain is so disorganized that I had a hard time focusing on one scene, and heck one story, at a time. But now I've proven to myself that I can.

I meant to finish the section i was working on and post it here just for kicks and giggles, but alas, I was distracted by a Freddie Mercury documentary. It was quite lovely though. I don't care what other people say, he was a pure soul who followed his own path and did what made him happy without hurting any one else. There is something to be said for that.
