I don’t like uh oh, not one bit. Uh oh’s are never good. Never ever good. I’ve never heard an uh oh followed by something good. It’s always ‘Uh oh I lost the map,’ ‘Uh oh we ran out of gas,’ or ‘Uh oh I’m locked out,’ it is never ‘Uh oh I have candy’ or ‘Uh oh here’s cheesecake.’ Uh oh’s suck.

Love is that unexplainable sensation in the pit of your stomach. Love is smiling for no reason when the person you love is around. Love is… love is perhaps of the most wonderfully terrifying things to ever exist. It makes you act a fool, it makes you act a hero, it makes everything so much more complicated. Love is dangerous. Yet, love is wonderful. Love is an uncontrollable happiness, an undying ember, a miracle, and a gift. Without love, human beings would be nothing more than animals. That is why love is so dangerous. A human who loves is a wild card. When the person they love is in danger it doesn’t matter who you are or how powerful you are, come Hell or high water, they will get the loved one back. To love… to love really is the greatest adventure to be had.

Finally, the long awaited Chapter 7 of my book TKC Vol I: The Knowers. I suggest you back and read the previous chapters I posted so that this will make sense.

I am currently almost finished with chapter 13 of the book, and it is still my goal to finish the book before the Fourth of July, anyway I look forward to people reading thsi and please feel free to give me feed back on the book. Thanks.

The torment that Gregg and Dan had put him through no longer mattered, his fear of bees, sharks, germs, heights, surprises, and cats no longer mattered. As for his fears of clowns, well somethings are just so creepy and terrifying that no matter what you do you will always be scared of them, but in Nathaniel’s defense, clowns are the most terrifyingly creepy things on earth.

Update on The Knower Chronicles Vol I: The Knowers (3/26/12)

Pages: 166 single spaced 12 font

chapters: 13

paragraphs: 1,966

words: 104,264

characters (with spaces): 551,389

______________________________________________________________

It took too damn long to write those 9 pages for chapter 13, but it is my own fault, I get distracted so easily that it takes about 3 months just to write a chapter, there was a time I could knock out a chapter in one afternoon. Anyway the book is kind of where I want it to be, it is a first draft. I know exactly where I need to fix things, but I’m not really worried about such corrections at this stage, I also know where I want chapters 14-16 to go and I’m fairly confident in my character development for the main characters. To be honest I am happy with how this book is turning out, I also just want to skip all of the books and just start Vol VI because the characters are much older and closer to my age, but if I do that I’ll never finish the first five volumes of TKC.

Just a reminder that chapter 7 “How to Catch a Witch” will be posted this Friday at 12:00pm EST so people can finally continue reading the book.

Quick question: Have any of my followers even read the six chapters that I have already posted?

Death, death comes for all. Death is the only thing in life that all mortal being will experience. It is the great uniter and the great divider of the living. Death conquers all, Death can not be destroyed, contained or set to the side. When Death knocks at the door we must answer. Death is the most natural thing you will ever do. With life, comes death, with death comes many a-thing. Death is sorrow, death is pain, death is quick, death is slow, death is leaving, and death is an escape to the afterlife. No one dies for nothing, no one leaves before their time. Since the dawn of time and living things death has always been a mystery and never an illusion. In the end Death will come for everyone, and when it does you can only hope that you will not be afraid when it is your time.

The Knower Chronicles Vol V: The First Demon (Nate's and Stella's argument)

Stella:
You are the most magnanimously unforgiving person I know!
Nate:
That doesn't even make sense.
Stella:
It makes enough sense to be true about you.
Nate:
Do you even know what magnanimous means?
Stella:
Very generous or forgiving, especially toward a rival or someone less powerful than oneself.
Nate:
Then how can I be magnanimously unforgiving?
Stella:
Because... you're the biggest oxymoronic human in history!
Nate:
No matter what I do I can never please you!
Stella:
Because you are a man, everything you do is stupid.
Nate:
Well, everything you do never makes any sense.
Stella:
That's because I am a woman!

The mind is a very strange thing. man will never understand it, we try, but we will fail. Being that the mind is so uniquely complex and extremely extraordinary it does rather odd things to the person it inhabits. it tells you to do thinks that you don’t want to do, it doesn’t work when you need it to, it works when you want to fall into a deep sleep, and it will fill your head with terrible nightmares. normally these nightmares are just that nightmares, but when these nightmares start coming true even sleep is something you never look forward too. And for Jessica Fortuna sleep was no longer an option.

look at this bad ass line I just wrote:

“Do not flatter yourself child, I look at your entire race with contempt and the utmost repulsion.  You are not special Nathaniel, in fact you are one of the most ordinary humans I will have the pleasure of killing, and I’ve killed many humans all of which have been very drab,” she smirked her evil ugly smile and giggled the most out of place, bone chilling, extraordinarily hostile girlish laugh. In fact out of all of the girlish laughter Nathaniel had heard over the course of his 13 years he had never heard a laugh this mean and wicked. It was worse than the little giggle that gaggles of guessied up of girls would giggle as they would glide by Nathaniel, he related this to much middle school mockery. 

—- Advena to Nate Spectre from  The Knower Chronicles Vol I: The Knowers, Chapter 13 “Even the Best Laid Plans…” page 164.

I didn’t put it as a quote because I wanted to actually talk about it. If you notice it is a great example of character development when the subject isn’t even Nathaniel. The subject is something completely different, but because of the semi-omniscient narration we can see what the laughing is associated to within Nate’s mind. The above quote serves two functions. One is that it shows the reader even more of the antagonist (Advena) here. And two, it further shows what Nate feels his life is like and it shows what type of kid he is. Plus everyone loves alliterations. I was trying to make the reader further understand Nate whilst making it a memorable quote. And yes it is supposed to be a little sexist. When I say “extraordinarily hostile girlish laugh” I actually mean that every girlish giggle that Nate has ever heard has been a hostile one. After all, you remember how cruel children are to each other. I am also implying that this laugh was even more hostile than any girl ever’s ever. Further feeding into the fact that Advena is really fucking evil. 

Why am I taking the time to actually explain the context of a paragraph I wrote? It is simple really. When this book becomes super famous and English teachers want to analysis it in class I want this to go on record that this is what I actually fucking meant. It is clear as day in the paragraph. You need to be a moron to see what I am not talking about, especially when you read the rest of the paragraph, chapter, or book. This is character development not whatever a teacher thinks it is. Seriously, when I’m famous I better not come across any papers about what I actually meant in my book. Because there is no fucking subtext. It is a book for 12-17 year olds, how much subtext could I possibly put in the book? Granted I want them to think while they read, but that will come when they actually read because of the SAT words and the actual philosophical questions and when they read my thoughts , which are clearly on the page about love, life, death, and pretty much everything in the whole of existence. When I write, I do not write for just the readers pure entertainment, I write for the fact that I strongly believe that when you read you should get something out of it. Yes reading is fun, but so is learning and if I can make kids actually try to make sense of the world and not be stupid then I will succeed. And that is how you analyze a passage in a book and not ask what the author “really meant” when he made the curtains blue when he just likes the fucking color blue.

Everything after the read more is a personal rant about writing. I got overly enthused and was really bored and didn’t want to work on my book anymore. Read it if you want, I can’t stop you.

When God created man, he was trying to create the perfect being, and with Adam and Eve there was perfection, but something went awry, and evil corrupted man, and changed God’s most beloved creations into a very perplexing and confusing species. This is why no writer can ever describe humanity the right way, unfortunately, that does not seem to stop them from trying.
