Happy Birthday…

One Year Old Today….

My Birthday as well.  [I am more than one year old, unfortunately.]

This was my first design of the blogpaper header.  An edited version of a real newspaper heading. But after a couple of uses I changed it to a green colour.

This one as you might see is very similar, but it does have a few small differences.  The launch and blogpaper fonts are different. But even with this one I was not happy with it. Yes it looked like a good normal newspaper heading but it was not really fully 100% mine. Yes the editing altered the original to make it mine, but the foundation was not mine. So I decided to start from scratch and came up with the design below. I do quite like it, if I say so myself.

The one above is my latest and now most used, it is crisp and clear, and is easily recognisable as a paper title/header. I like to use it when writing specific subjects or ideas, to make my post a little different to others. It also seems to justify the post and make it a little more believable or meaningful. I have tried to use it as a newspaper would with their articles, but actually after checking through my posts I have not used it as often as I thought. I have used it on my Writing Hell blog a few times as well, and, here on Legends Undying my Sunday guest posting. So maybe I might have to have a word with the editor and see what is going on,, is there not enough stories, I cannot believe this.  Watch this Space.

Tomorrow..

..is July 1st and is the start of July Camp- Nanowrimo, and although I have enlisted with the intention of trying to finish my story ….

As the day gets closer, I am not really sure about actually doing it, my mind is not fully open to this project.  When I first decided on doing it my frame of mind was completely different and prepared, but cannot be sure now.  However,  after saying this I will try to give it my best shot. After all I have completed all three of my previous attempts.

The Sharp Giants (part 3)

by Gaston Prereth

Portillo closed the maps on his screen. He knew he was being kept quiet. The captain would know that he knew it too. They had all done the same training. They had all sat through the same lectures on the capabilities of Bertha. There was no way that Bertha would not have been able to work out her own route to their chosen location, and she could handle far rougher terrain than Midas. It was just another example of Captain Hibbard not trusting him. He bet the captain wished that Travis had come on the trip instead. Travis was the risk taker, the imaginative one.

“Can you come up here, Portillo. I need someone to keep an eye on our fuel burn and, well, you’re the only one here.” Kendrick looked over his shoulder and grinned as Portillo pulled himself out of his seat and dragged himself up the slender fuselage. He strapped himself in, tightening the buckles around his midriff.
