The One Where He Slaps His Head And Goes, "Duh!"

Yeah, so, I might have forgotten to mention that the novel I'm writing for NaNoWriMo is an epic fantasy - nay, a masterwork of epic fantasy! - entitled The Root and the Way. This is a story that's been percolating in my head since 2000, but is actually set in a world that I created waaaaaay back when in 1988, when I was all of 13 years old. Uh huh: I'm that much of a genius.

And, yes, smart-ass: I have been a geek for most of my life. Point?

Um... anyway, this masterwork of epic fantasy is fairly standard, as masterworks go. There's a prophecy, an evil empire, an innocent child who is destined for Great Things, mysterious mages who may or may not have their own agendas, and, of course, The Little Island Nation That Could. There are dueling magic systems, warrior-priests, a mysterious plague, portents of doom, war, and dark magical beings bent on their own personal whatevers. And, in case you were wondering: yup, there's a bit of a quest in there, as well. Just what the quest entails and who participates are things I'm still working out, but that, friend, is the magic and wonder of writing.

So, there it is. Probably should have explained that before I started posting excerpts from the thing, huh?
