Sunday Short Stories is a weekly Random (because New Bebe) post that shares some of the best short stories out in the ‘verse. So grab a coffee, settle deep into your favorite chair, and enjoy the escape.
Today I am giving you something a little different; a true story. This is an enlightening article from Maptia, about The Kingdom of Bantar Gebang. Sometimes we need to give a little- money, time, a re-tweet about a good cause- whatever you can do, and this story needs to be shared. If you are so inclined, follow Maptia, as they produce astounding photo-stories and will give you so much more knowledge of places around the world.
This next item is a shameless plug for my new writing project, The Cunning Crow. If you love reading Fantasy and Sci-Fi you might like this! It is a fantasy fan-fic Newspaper, reporting on fantastical news from a city hidden just outside Kamloops, BC. Please take a moment to go check it out!
Lastly, This is a re-telling of the Snow White story, which I rather liked, but, then again, who doesn’t like re-tellings of fairytales?
Ok, I am done my Fantasy world Newspaper and have begun the editing process, which, honestly, has been a lot of procrastinating for me. I just want to post it already, but every time I start working on it…. my brain stops working. I akin it to Homers focus. Side note: while looking for this picture I found someone had made an entire post of Homers thoughts, lol. Awesome.
Anyway, here’s the collection of teaser images I have posted here or on my Twitter, and hopefully soon you will be reading the finished product. I think I am going to make it JPG or PDF’s and load it onto Deviant Art for people to read/download. The Newspaper, The Cunning Crow, reports on the hidden magical (fairy-tale characters/legends/beasts/mythological beings, alt-Earths, Planets, etc) city from a location outside of Kamloops, British Columbia.
I’m going to have a cheat sheet for people so its not too confusing. It is rather hard to explain how things work via a newspaper, but I try really hard.
I seem to be moving at glacier speed while creating this side project, so I thought I would post a couple behind the scenes pictures and explain what it is I am making.
The Cunning Crow is a fan-fic Newspaper I started making, drawing from my favorite books and TV shows and reporting on them as if they were real. I have Gardening With Samwise Gamgee and Tool Care with Thor. Or, I just make up news that I think is cool, like Mountain Trolls causing trouble in B.C.
The Newspaper will be completely free, and just more of a passion project that I hope other nerds will love as much as I do.
I even made a classifieds section, and here are a couple ads, one promoting a Terraformed planet that Mimics actual places, like Vegas does. The other one is for Sophie’s Millinery, a shout out to Miyazaki.
The entire en-devour is to be creative, to push the imagination, create a fun world to slip into.
