Fourteen days and fourteen men spent on this quest. I gaze, at last, upon the Temple of Souls; the prison of my wife and child, innocents in the battle of the Fallen Ones. I take heart knowing that I am more familiar with hell, than with heaven. I am ready to enter that place. I am ready to meet providence.
I was born of deep sadness, guilt and shame; a child of rape. My mother, barely a woman herself, could not let me go. Her mother,on the other hand, could not conceive of letting such an abomination soil her good name. It was on that sea cliff, soaked in a shroud of dreary mist and anguish, my short life should have ended. By the hand of my mother's mother I should have met the rocks that hold back a raging sea. It was not death that met me, but the force of destiny. Through this fateful act, the journey begins, as it was foretold. I am Ilini, the Keeper.
If you are new at writing, doing some writing prompts is a great way to stretch your skill. I like to use it as a distraction when I'm writing my novel and come into a "writer's block." It helps to step away from the story I'm writing. I don't feel the pressure of my current character set. Try it, it really helps. (If that doesn't work, try a few hours of Spider Solitaire... that can clear your mind as well, but beware, it's addictive!)
