Bens quest part 1

The expedition into the waste was tiresome for Ben. Maps for this area were hard to find and the cost was steep. Ben had to take a loan out with the leader of the Dreg camp to afford it. The worst thing that could happen is that the town is empty; Dreg leaders are not the forgiving type when it comes to credits. There is also  beasts known to be in this area, particularly one. This one beast is know as the Nex. They looks as if you deep fried a person, attached large hooks to each one of its finger, replaced its teeth with spear tips. The nex liked to hunt here. Ben couldn’t afford a bodyguard, the loan only got him enough credits to get basic supplies to make it there and back.Making his way into town he saw a old welcome sign on the ground that read Welcome to Tadem in tattered red and white letter.

Working on a short story

I started working on a short story last week. I first started by writting a overview of the events that are going to happen. Writting down the overview help develop the story better for me and gets the ideas out of me brain. The plan was for this weekend to finsh, but after writting the first paragraph and revieing it I needed to fix a lot of grammer problems, tense issues and make it flow better. Having my wife look it over last night imporved it quite a bit. I should have the first part up by Firday this week at the leastest.

Becoming a better writer

It is been a long time since the last update, but I have come up with a plan. I want to become a better writer to achive this I am going to post more. Going to change my update schedule to 3 times a week Monday, Wednesday and Firday. To get good at something you need to pratice pratice pratice. A teacher growing up once told me an idea is great, but if you don't write it down it just stays an idea forever. I have creative ideas, but have never written them down becuase my writting is weak. Now it is time for pratice I will make myself better and the only way is to work out my fingers by putting these ideas to print.
