No really, the cake owes me like 10  bucks and said he would pay me soon.  I have yet to see any green backs from that cheap punk.  Don’t do business with cake…

This story was inspired by the prompt over at Jeff Hites http://greathites.blogspot.com/.  The prompt was, “in the largest bookstore in the city. ”  I don’t know how it came to what I have here, but it did.

So here we have it, “Harold the Ardently Knight of Battynannas: Part 1.”  It is a long read, about 7 minutes if you don’t fall asleep.   I’m still knew to all this stuff.   Suggestions are always welcome, especially in regards to the audio.

As of about 5:53am this morning I turned 25 years old.  I think this is the first birthday where it just felt like a regular day.  Probably an indicator I’m getting ancient.  Next the memory goes and I will just … wait what was I doing here? … oh yea.

So I’m being challenged to write an Epic Poem in heroic verse using an iambic pentameter with 5 feet.  The kicker is that it needs to be 1000 to 2000 words which I find to be very intimidating but also EPIC should I complete one.

I used to scoff at poetry, mainly because all I was exposed  to were the ancient verses that made no sense and the useless rambles of the emotional self proclaimed poets of my teenage days.

example:

“… The knife cuts, oh so deep

My days blacken into night.

I can not even count the sheep,

Lord save me from my plight….”

Yea… whatever you say James err I mean “Dark Lord Con.”  Real poetry is very technical in nature.  That is the challenge of writing good poetry.  There is also the challenge of people not knowing how to read poetry and appreciating what you have done.  Now I’m rambling – better cut this off.

other notes:

My Week 2 Assignment in my Fiction class unfortunately had me writing a bit for my novel and I’m just not ready to show the world that yet.  So hopefully week 3 will yield something I can share.
