October is here, Rusty’s Kellan Blog Post number 2

Kellan Publishing Company blog October 2015

‘And now on … Autumn 27 Raccoon: Onar strikes Bloodgrue again with his cane. “You over cooked the porridge again apprentice. DO NOT overcook the porridge, I tire of telling you. Cook it again. This time take it off the stove before it overcooks. You have fifteen minutes or you go to work with no food. Now throw that slop out and start over.”

Obviously in a foul mood, Onar beats Bloodgrue three more times with his cane as Bloodgrue clears away the porridge and starts cooking again.

Bloodgrue walks into Teptun’s Square & Market with an empty stomach but not an empty coin pouch. Walking over to the food stalls, he buys two pears and an apple, plus gets his skin filled with ale. The fruit cost him three dusters and two dusters for the ale. Bloodgrue smiles as he remembers how upset Onar got at the undercooked porridge. Bloodgrue counted five lashings for that and he was sent off to work without food.

Now with food, Bloodgrue walks over to his mentor and patron’s stall in the centre of the square & market. Stall 74, Blue Hair’s chicken stall.’ Episode 31 opening

Writing is a like a tread mill.

When you get on a tread mill for the first time you don’t put it to 5.0 miles an hour and hope to last an hour. Especially, if you’ve never ran more than a few feet to go anywhere and your longest walk was to the refrigerator or the bus stop to get to work.

No! You set it to maybe 2.0 miles an hour for ten minutes and be happy when your aching calf muscles make it to the end of the time. Over the next walking sessions, maybe three the first week and continuing with three a week, you gradually increase the time by five minutes a session. After a month you increase the pace to 2.3 miles an hour. Gradually you build up your muscles by building up your pace and time. But not only do you build up your muscles and stamina, you build your confidence and develop a habit.

Writing is the same, you don’t write a good novel in a week the first time you sit down to write. Heck, you don’t even write a good blog post the first time you sit down to write. You have to build up your skills and the ability to write something good. You have to sit down three or four times a week, for an hour or two each time, and write. At first you will ache trying to get something out that resembles good writing. You will have to rewrite it many times, and you will scrap a lot of it. But eventually your work will start to read better. It will be easier to write, it will take fewer rewrites. Your editor will be happier and your confidence will grow.

Then one day after all your hard work you will look at your finished work and hand it to an editor or a publisher and they will say, “We can publish this.” Now, don’t drop in a faint; you put in the sweat and effort, you work for this day. Now, with confidence, enjoy the reward.

Bloodgrue and the races of Kannoral

Bloodgrue is an e-series on Kellan Publishing By Rusty Knight:

This is the opening to episode one:

Autumn 76 Lizard: The sphere is clear as the gods breathe strongly eastward. Bloodgrue watches the skinny, armoured jalmal who is seeking help. The tall, unattractive, seventyish appearing man seems lost. So, Bloodgrue does his job, he approaches the man hoping, as usual, that the jalmal speaks native jalnoric. Sometimes they don’t; rarely, but sometimes.  

In clear jalnoric speech, Bloodgrue offers the man. “Hello outter, you look lost. I am a dragoman apprentice. Perhaps I can help you. My name is Bloodgrue.”

Episode 1, opening paragraph.

There are three main races of humans in the Kannoral setting, of which Bloodgrue is a jalnoric decent.

The three races of humans are jalnoric, toydon and tedon. They are referred to in the stories as jal, toy and ted.

Now, another note in nomenclature is the culture refers to females as fem and males as mal. So when referring to someone, they are referred to as jalfem or jalmal, meaning jalnoric female or jalnoric male, or toyfem or toymal, meaning toydon female or toydon male, etc.

The majority of humans in the Dominnion of Kannoral are jalnoric, basically 65% of them. Then a further 30% are toydon and 4% are tedon, the final 1% are what are referred to as halfers, or of mix breed. Halfers are shunned by everyone and are easily identified simply by appearance.

Jalnoric males are well over six feet tall and over two hundred pounds. Females tend to be six feet tall and nearly one-hundred and eight pounds.

Toydon males tend to be just over six feet tall and around two hundred pounds. As well females tend to be five feet eight inches is average, while one-hundred and sixty pounds is the norm.

Tedon males are an average six feet tall and one-hundred ninety pounds. The females tend towards five feet six inches and one-hundred and forty pounds.

All human have dark black hair that if allow it to grow out to full length naturally, it grows longer than waist long. No humans in Kannoral grow facial hair.

The jalnoric have various tints of grey eyes and toydon have blue, while tedon have brown.

Halfers tend to violet or emerald eyes and brown or blonde hair, also they tend to be shorter than the full stock races and with a slighter build.
