It has been a while since I've made a blog post, hasn't it? :P Alright, well, lots to talk about! Let's start with the official business.
I will now be posting a blog post once a week, every Sunday.
The multiwriter competition for Landscape has ended! Here are the results, along with the prizes.
Honorary Mention- An excerpt from a list of specific stories I give you.

Fifth Place- Same as Honorary Mention, but you can choose an excerpt from a list of all books I'm writing in the Timeline of the Umbra Imperium, including some secret stories that no one, not even my own family knows about.
Fourth Place- Same as fifth place.
Third Place- Same as fourth place, except you get to choose two excerpts instead of just one, and I will read your story if you write one.
Second Place- Same as third place, plus you get to read the first three chapters of The Truths of the Universe: An End to the Tale
First Place- Same as second place, plus you get to write Landscape with me.
So, yes, that's how it all happened. Now I've got some excerpts to write. :P
My sister has really started to work on the poster-thing for TotU:AEttT. It's looking pretty good so far. Though, I won't be working on the story for the next few days, because I'll be working on my new Halloween story, Deep Sleep: Hallow's Eve. The style of writing for it, first person anonymous, is slightly bugging me, as I'm not giving the main character's name or even gender. :P I'll see how you guys like it. It's coming on Halloween, October the 31st.
Non-story wise, I've been doing pretty well in real life. I finally got to hang out with one of my best friends at the mall the Saturday before yesterday. I went to the Horizons Center, a place for disabled people, for their Halloween thing on Friday the 26th, and in my cloak (my Halloween costume is a Ranger from Ranger's Apprentice), I got to stand in the haunted trail with the cowl covering my face. Lots of people really thought I was a statue, until I went all weeping angel on them. :P
Yesterday, I went to Airbound with some friends from church, and I finally managed a backflip. :) But my knee jammed into my face and my bicep. :P Afterwards, we went to my friend's house, which has a theater in their basement, and we watched The Woman in Black. I didn't sleep too well last night. :P But we kept shouting "Use you wand, Harry!!!!" :P
Today, I volunteered at the Children's Museum in downtown Winston-Salem. I got to see some of my friends there, and get some service hours off for school. It was lots of fun. My job was at the bouncy slide. :P
Well, that's about all I got today. Shoutouts will begin again next week, if I can find anyone to shout at. :P
Keep up the imagination, guys! This is SlyFireCobra, signing off for tonight.
