This cataclysm destroyed modern society and reduced mankind to a stage of survival of the fittest. Seven hundred years later, the witches came and restored some semblance of civilization as they scavenged the ruins of the Old World for technology, information, and a way to destroy Yggdrasil. However, this story isn't about what happened back then or about a way to restore the world. No, this is the tale of a select few who'll shape the world in their attempts to find a way to love and live with themselves." ― ❦ ― This book will be split into multiple points of view creating a large and unique cast where each are an protagonist and an antagonist to themselves or the others.

It worked for my wonderful piece One Night, the Carnival and I am hoping this here will keep me more focused and interested in actively writing. I ask for any support and kind words you can give, even a like goes a long way for me. ― ❦ ― Daily News June 10th 2015 I did amazing today! So many new chapters and quotes and I still have fire for more! I'm going to need beta readers soon, as I hate to pile it on a single person. I hope the things I want in the book are apparent in the book. So much has changed since the first initial concepts that I hardly recognize it. Perhaps these old ideas don't need to be in the book or perhaps that me saying I doubt I can do it... Whatever the case, WotW is going to be an enjoyable and entertaining story that I believe fantasy lovers of all ages can appreciate and get lost in even if it's not as perfect as it is in my own mind. May 7th 2015 I bet I can finish the rough draft and most edits before my birthday this month. A quarter of my life nearly over. I need to make the rest count. WotW is going to be a reality.
