Another post! Yay!
As you may have noticed, my last post was rather deep. I meant all of it, too. After all, it could always be worse...
*thunder strikes nearby*
Eep. Again, I meant it. While this journal-blog-doohickey is mostly for goofing off, it will occasionally be used for deep thoughts such as the last post. Just remember, everything I joke about is either too ridiculous to be real or followed shortly by a 'just kidding' type statement. Or obviously a joke, like the sarcastic remarks about how many people actually read this thing. Nice to know I'm not totally ignored, though.
Now, to my fellow convicts...um, 'loyal readers', there is a free buffet on the corner of Grove and Elm. Or was it somewhere else? Well, there's probably a free buffet SOMEWHERE. Tell 'em I sent you, and there's a good chance they'll give you funny looks.
To all wondering about the Haruki Project, the first chapter is almost complete. Going to Auburn kinda slows down the writing process, but I won't give up!
Of course, no one can be excited about a book they know nothing about, so I'll fill you in on the general starting idea.
The year is 2354. After quarantining the last of a zombie outbreak, the world is left a shattered shell of its former self. Countless nations have fallen to the plague, and the restoration project is coming along slowly. Even the great United States, as well as the rest of the Americas, have fallen.
Amidst the chaos, two new world powers rise; Japan and Germany. Acting on the age-old desire it has always had to conquer the world, Germany has assimilated the surviving countries in Europe and Africa, forming the German Empire. Japan, meanwhile, has joined forces with the surviving Asian countries, as well as a few island countries like Austrailia, New Zealand... well, you get the picture.
Which raises the biggest question of all...
With World War 3 looming on the horizon, why is this novel focusing on a group of archaeologists?
Anyway, there's your first trailer, sort of. Look for Shattered Logic Volume 1 (or whatever I finalize the name as), coming to a bookshelf near, or far from, you soon...maybe...
