Blogs to Blog About - A Light in the Darkness

I featured this blog when I started A Writers Tale almost a year ago and feel like it deserves a little more credit.  As a writer I take inspiration from all sorts of places, the blogs of other writers have got me through writer's block many times and I still look for interesting blogs that make me think and challenge my own writing.

This particular blog is written by Thomas Courtney who runs a Dungeons and Dragons group in San Diego.  Thomas creates original content based on the table game that his group plays which feels like a very natural and organic way to develop a story which I find very intriguing.

ALIND is the story of a unique fantasy world where the magicked, divine and otherworldly aspects to the fantasy genre are in a way, explained through reality and history. It composes six different stories which you can read about in four acts apiece.

If you want to check it out - and I highly suggest that you do, especially if Fantasy/Adventure is your preference - you can find the blog at A Light in the Darkness.  I suggest you read the 'About ALIND' page here which tells you the sequence of the stories and the best way to read through them.

Let me know your blog address in the comments below and I will do what I can to feature them here at A Writer's Tale.

Signing off for now,

Make sure you check it out here: One thing I must say; don't be disheartened if you don't hit your word count.  NaNo is a difficult challenge, especially if you haven't attempted it before - I myself have failed to hit my word count on a few attempts.  Regardless of your word count you should end the month with something that you can work with, whether that is four chapters or fourteen cha
