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.

The Dark Globe

Posted in Editorial, Lion's Roar, Movie Review, Music, Novel, Story, Writers, Writing with tags on October 31, 2011 by darkjade68

Hey guys, I just wanted to Officially let you know about my New Blog, “The Dark Globe“.

I Designed this Third Blog to be a place for Writer’s, Photographer’s etc. to come together, and Blend and Post Material.

I think of this Blog as more of a “News Paper” of a sort, in Theme that is.

There are a bunch of Sections/Page’s on the Site, and as people Write/Post things, I will also Put a Link to their Posts on/in the Appropriate Page.

So far I’ve Invited 7 Writer’s, and 2 Photographer’s to be involved in the Site, and so far I’ve heard back from 3 Writer’s and the 1 Photographer that would like to Post. The 2nd Photographer might do some Instructional Post’s at a later date, once her schedule is freed up. The other 4 Writer’s I haven’t heard from yet, I’m sure I will either way at some point.

The Current Sections are as Follow’s;

  1. Film, Book and Television Reviews – An Area that I simply haven’t had time for lately on The Written Word, and I hope to find some people  interested in Writing Reviews. I love Writing them myself, Film in my case, but I’ve just been too busy lately to get to them. I have a hand full on The Written Word, but hope to continue them on The Dark Globe, and attach the Links in my Section on this Site as well. I’ve never reviewed a Book, as I’m not much of a Reader, sadly. But would love for some Writer’s to Write some on The Dark Globe.
  2. Earthling’s Speak – Editorials – I have found that I love, love, love Writing Editorial’s as well as my Creative Writing. This Section gives me an Opportunity to Write Editorial’s, which I sometimes do on The Written Word.
  3. My World News – This Section/Topic gives Writer’s an Opportunity to Write about either their Personal Lives, or their Life being a Writer. I’m hoping many of the Site’s Writer’s, as well as myself, contributes to this Section, as I find it very enjoyable to Read that kind of Piece, as well as Writing a Piece like this. The Title “My World News” basically refers to the Writer’s Personal World. I haven’t decided if I want to keep that Title, and am completely open to suggestions for it.
  4. Music – Scene, Taste, Opinion – During my time here on WordPress, I have heard many Writer’s talk about their love of Music, or Specific Bands. Either in a Piece on their Blog, or in the Forums as it were. This Section is somewhere where Writer’s can Write about either Music they Like, or their Opinions about Certain Music, or The Music Scene, such as a Show They Saw. I’m really excited about this Section, and am hoping that some Writer’s Write some Piece’s for it.
  5. Technology – It’s Unavoidable – This is a Section that I doubt I will Contribute much to, mainly as I’m not really a “Techy”, even though I embrace, enjoy and comprehend it pretty well. I will need to find a, or several Writer’s to Post Piece’s for this Section.
  6. Short Story – Novel Tid Bits – This is an Area on the Blog for Writer’s to Write a Short Story, or Post One that they’ve Written/Posted somewhere else, or perhaps Post a Chapter, or a few Page’s of a Novel They’ve either Written, or are in the Process of Writing.
  7. Photo’s or Painting’s – Pretty Self Explanatory, somewhere for our Photographer’s, Painter’s etc. to have their stuff. Like I say, after a Writer or Photographer etc. Posts their Post, I will Link it in/on the Appropriate Page. Older Work is also Welcomed.
  8. Health or Diet – Self Explanatory.
  9. Writing – The Craft – Once again, during my time here on WordPress, I have come across many, many Article’s about The Craft of Writing. From Technique, to Opinion. I’m hoping to get some Interesting Stuff Written for this Section from our Writer’s.
  10. Finance – Economy – Self Explanatory. Doesn’t sound too interesting to some maybe, I think there’s a lot know, and learn here. Also, I’m curious how Countries Economy’s are Effecting people’s Personl Economy’s all around the World.
  11. Deep Impact – Friends, Lovers & More – This was Originally meant to be a Single Post I was Writing today, but then I realized very quickly, it took me 1,300 words just to cover One Person that has Impacted My Life. Thus, I’ve decided to make a Series out of it, and also Welcome any of our Writer’s to Partake in the Series.

Once Again I’m not Advertising this Post in the Forum’s, I just wanted to let you my Readers/Subscribers, as well as any others that happen to Read it, about The Dark Globe. The only way that I see this impacting The Written Word really, is perhaps the Film Reviews, which will Originally be Posted on The Dark Globe now, but will still be Linked on my Movie Reviews – Favorite Films Section. Other than that, my Editorials may shift to The Dark Globe a bit, but there is more likely going to be even More Posts of New Creative Writing Here, such as my New Novel Project “Lion’s Roar”.

Thank you again for all of your Support, and I hope to see you over on The Dark Globe, as well as The Written Word. And of course those that have also checked out the One Knight Site. I thank you all.
