Under The Weather – DarkJade Update

Posted in Blog Series, Captain Fire 197, Dark Rider, Editorial, Entertainment, I Died Once, Novel, Poetry, The Mind with tags , , on November 29, 2011 by darkjade68

I think I’m fighting something off today, so I decided to just Chill a bit…

So what better time for a DarkJade Update.



The Written Word;

I recently completed my Writing Project (Novella) “I Died Once“, or I.D.O.

When I sat down to Write the Final Chapter, that wasn’t actually my Intention… But I have been feeling that the Climax was nearing, and when Pen hit Paper that day, that is surely what occurred.

I haven’t gotten a lot of Feedback on it as of yet, but during it’s run it got Several “Likes”, and the Readers that did Follow it, had Positive things to say about it, as well as it’s Ending. So this left me feeling very good… Especially since I’ve never completed a Novel, or in this case, a Novella before.

Though it’s only a very rough first draft, as I merely sat down, wrote a chapter, and posted it… No Editing as of yet. But at some point I will pick it up again, probably Edit/Fill it out a bit more myself, and then finally get it into the hands of some people for Actual Editing and/or Opinion. Thank you to all of you that did check it out during it’s run.

Blog Series;

Dark RiderI’ve had a lot of fun Writing The Dark Rider Series, and so it’s likely to keep going for a while. In fact, I have the latest Episode of it sitting in one of my Four Notebooks right now… Once I’m feeling a bit better, I will be posting it.


Captain Fire 197; Captain Fire 197 has also been fun, though I find there are periods where I set it down for a week or so, until something just hits me and the next Episode or two comes. I for see it being around for a bit.







Sleeper; I gave a Spy Series called Sleeper a few goes, but there didn’t seem to be much interest, and as many different things as I’m Writing, I end up needing to be a bit selective sometimes as to what I put my time into.


New Series – The Mind Chronicles; I’ve really had a lot of fun with this Series… And the Initial Volumes of it have just flown out of me. So far I’ve had a couple “Likes”, and Comments, but am looking forward to hearing how people like this Series.







Scribblings/Poems; I originally started Writing some Poetry back when I started the Blog on August 18th, but slowly started to veer away from itSuprisingly, I have as of late been returning to Writing some more… I’m also currently having my First 14 Poems Edited by my Oldest Sister (Who is a Beautiful Poet, and quite good in English, which I’m not), and looking to potentially Self Publishing them into a Simple Little Book. We shall see how that goes.

The Dark Globe; My 3rd Blog The Dark Globe, which I started back at the end of October, has gone quite well… We currently have 6 Contributing Writers, and 1 Contributing Photographer… There are also a couple more Writers that have signed on, who may Contribute at some point.

We recently received the Versatile Blogger Award over there, and I have shifted my Film Reviews, and many of my Editorials to that Blog. As much as I consider myself a “Creative Writer”, I also have a strong passion for “Journalism”. The Dark Globe has been an Excellent Outlet for that part of my Writing.

One Knight; My 2nd Blog, One Knight (Site), has gone quite well as well, at least as far as Productivity is concerned… I have completed over 12 Chapters on my One Knight (The Novel), and My Guest Writers Pdk The Writing’s of Pdk and Pete Insanity’s Ascension have been busy as well.

Anyway, that’s enough for now…

I want to thank all of you that Follow The Written Word, as well those that Follow The Dark Globe and One Knight Sites.

I Truly do Appreciate all of your Support, and/or Interest in mine, and the Artists that I work with… And look forward to Writing On…

DarkJade – Crossroads

Posted in Editorial, Inspiration, Writers, Writing with tags , , , on November 4, 2011 by darkjade68


The Writer

Inside of all of us is The Writer… I’ve been writing since I was young, but I have never truly given my Writer a home… It is my intention to finally and truly embrace my Writer, I intend to do this by Writing, Writing, Writing…

But to do this, I must first create the space for it… Where will I write… What music will I listen to… Who will I share my writing with while I develop it… Time will tell

Time has told… I Wrote that as my very First Blog Post, back on August 18th, this year.

Now as I reflect how far I’ve come, and yes I know that seems silly to say, as it was only 11 weeks ago that I started this Blog… But in truth, I have accomplished exactly what I set out to do… 1) To Create a Space for me to Write, so that I could get in the Habit of Writing, Writing, Writing…  And that’s exactly what I’ve done. I’ve Started 3 Blog Series, 2 Novel’s, 1 Novela, I’ve Written 20 Poems, 5 Film Review’s, Some 30-ish Editorial’s, and Numerous Music Based Social/Experiential Posts, and started Two Other Blogs.

I’ve Written one to three Posts Daily for Eleven Weeks Straight… And I’ve learned a lot. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not Promoting Quantity over Quality by any means… I’ve just really been busy.

I’ve now found myself in an interesting Place. As I’ve shifted my Editorial’s, to a degree, over to my The Dark Globe Blog, which I’ve really enjoyed… I’ve set it up to be like a News Paper to a Degree… Something that our Society has slowly Weeded out, and shifted more towards the Internet… Which is fine. It’s not the same as Holding a News Paper in your hands, but it does give you a lot of Freedom, in regards to what Content you fill it with, as well as Who You Have Writing with you.

I’ve also Shifted my Film Review’s over there, but have also added  Book and Television Reviews. Something I’m hoping my Additional Site Writer’s get involved with, in addition to me.

On my Second Site, One Knight, I’ve also achieved what I set out to do, which was create a space Specifically for me to work on my “One Knight Novel, a Concept that I came up with as a young boy. As well as added a Couple Author’s to the Site, to give the Site Variation. But I’ve said all of this before.

I now sit with 2 Novel’s, and one Novela in front of me, and I’m trying to determine which to focus more on… So far I’ve inched each of the three along, most recently adding “Lion’s Roar” to my Work. This was a Novel Concept that I came up with while determining whether or not to Join the NaNoWriMo this year… In the end, I determined that I didn’t want to tie myself down to one project alone quite yet, even for a month… Perhaps next year. So, I in turn started to Write it here, in the Written Word.

Also, I’ve been doing some Research on Self Publishing, as I’m considering Publishing 14 of my 20 Poems in a Short Book. I’ve never Published anything before, so I’m quite excited about it. I’m currently gathering information about Printer’s, as well as determining if I want to Hire an Artist to Sketch a Cover, or go with something even simpler.

Other than that, I contacted a hand full of Writer’s, and one Photographer about Contributing as Author’s on The Dark Globe Blog, and several were interested. But I need more. So far I have 3 other Writer’s, and one Photographer interested.

I have several Topic’s/Page’s on this Site, some of which I will not be Writing under. Such as Technology. Though I love Technology, Embrace it, and Utilized it everyday… I am not remotely an Expert in regards to it. So I’m going to be looking for someone to Write Some Technology Piece’s, some Music Piece’s, some Short Stories (Either New, or Previously Posted elsewhere, either way), some Health or Diet Piece’s, as well as any other thing they’d like to Talk/Write about. I will find a spot for anything that is Written, or make a New Spot.

Anyway, like I say, I am at a bit of a Crossroads with Writing at the moment, and am looking to stretch and bend myself all the more as I Explore the Deeper Zone’s within.

I look forward to all of you coming along for the Ride, and perhaps even working with some of you on The Dark Globe.

Thanks for Listening. And thanks for Joining me up to this point.

One Knight – Formal Invitation

Posted in Fiction, Knights, Novel, Story, Writers, Writing with tags on October 15, 2011 by darkjade68

I just wanted to take this moment to Formally invite my Subscribers, as well as any other Readers and/or Reader/Writer’s who happen upon my site today, to come and check out my One Knight Site (Site Info Link). As I’m not Advertising this Post in the Forums.

On October Sixth, I did Create a Thread Announcing it, but beyond my About The Writer Page, have yet to mention it here at The Written Word. As I prefer to keep the two Sites a separate thing, as they are completely different from one another.

The One Knight site has become a Two Fold thing, first of which is a place for me to work on my Fantasy Novel Concept One Knight (One Knight Story Link). Something I came up with as a child.

Secondly as a home for The Writers of the Realm, which are Guest Writers who have agreed to Write some of their own Original Work, and Post it. This has gone very well, and when I say that, I mean the Writer’s that have partaken have put up some nice Pieces. Four Writers were invited to be Authors, two have posted Pete at Evolution of Insanity, who has created Insanity’s Ascension, a very provocative piece, and Pdk at Simple Observations, who has shared a couple of his Previously Written, though I don’t believe Previously Posted Pieces, The Life of William Conrad Chesterton and Forever.

I have to tell you, both of these Writers Posts are very Heart Felt, and well worth a gander.

Well enough of all that, I will finish by saying I have with my most recent Chapter of One Knight hit the “Edge of the Cliff” so to speak, as anything beyond this point is beyond the original concepts and ideas that I had as a youth, and thus I am in Fresh Unknown Territory. Or as my Favorite Writer would have said, “The Undiscovered Country” (Act III, Scene I Hamlet).

Also, as only two of the Four Writers invited to join the Writers of the Realm were able to partake, there are two openings for participants, and/or if you’d just like to Post a Random Piece, just let me know on this Post, and I’ll get you access to the One Knight Site. The Content of your Piece is completely at your discretion, and doesn’t need to go with the Site’s “Knightly” Theme, lol.

Thanks for your time, and continued patronage of The Written Word, I love Writing, and I love that you have all decided to join me on this Quest of mine, the Journey of Imagination that is Writing.

Something to leave you with…


Let the Games Begin…
