I have developed a lot of different pieces of writing over the years and I’m so glad to be able to share it with you here! Feel free to take a look at any of my works and I hope you find them enjoyable!
The stands were full. More people arrived to witness the joust to the death than any of the jousts before. Dionna, Aledon, and I struggled to find a seat, but eventually gave up. We were left to stand near the Noble Court. “I don’t understand why you want to watch this.” Dionna commented for theContinue reading “As a Fellow Knight pt. 5”
Thanksgiving is tomorrow! I know a lot of people are super excited for the food: deep fried turkey, seasoned mash potatoes, casseroles of all kinds, honeyed rolls, and sweet potatoes seasoned with pecans–makes my stomach growl just thinking about it! So how did we get so lucky to have a day like this? Everyone knowsContinue reading “Grateful Thanksgiving”
The House of Solana is a proud and noble bloodline that produces heroic and powerful knights, paladins, and warriors in every generation. They live in Alderheart and are known throughout the land for their goodness. Each one awaits the day the wind would bless them with it’s touch. My name is Nuray Solana. I wasContinue reading “D&D Character Backstory: Nuray Solana”
A Penny for Your Thoughts
Everyone has those random thoughts you have throughout the day. Something might be stuck on your chest that you just can’t shake off. Writing helps me shake things off and maybe checking out these random thoughts might help you? Sometimes, we don’t realize that other people can think or feel the same way about a topic that we might think is off the wall.
Hey everyone! I attended the North Carolina Writing Workshop over the weekend and I want to share a few of my favorite notes from the events. The event was set up by Brian A. Klems and hosted a lot of fabulous agents and editors. Brian’s pretty much the expert for getting these workshops running, soContinue reading “Querying; Notes from a Workshop”
It didn’t take long for Dionna to point out Sir Gavin’s tent. It wasn’t the best looking, but it wasn’t terrible either. He only had one banner strung up on a pole. It was black and violet with silver lion on it. No one ever boasted of the lion part, so I was second guessingContinue reading “As a Fellow Knight pt. 4”
I know, it’s weird, right? I’ve never used a hashtag as my blog post title, but I assure you, there’s a very good reason why. This week is the North Carolina Online Writing Workshop and I going to attend. It’s super exciting! It’s a two day event and the class schedule looks like it’ll haveContinue reading “#CarolinaWW”

Just as we suspected, city guardsmen were stationed around the knight’s tents. A whole area of the King’s Field was set up for knights and other challengers to make their camp for the tournament. Most of them had large setups with flashy banners marked with sigils. It wasn’t hard to find Sir Duncan’s tent. EveryContinue reading “As a Fellow Knight pt. 3”
Halloween was last Sunday. A spooky night of trick-or-treating, scares, and costumes. My family loves Halloween–especially my brother. So, a couple years ago, we started a tradition of doing a haunted garage Halloween night for every trick-or-treater that came through our neighborhood. Our decor gets bigger every year and this year our theme was witchContinue reading “Going Down the Bayou”
A true joust is one of respect between opponents. The points are given fairly by the Knight Marshal. Both knights ride at the same time and if one should ask for Mercy’s Pass, it should be granted to them. The hits should be clean and directly to the other rider’s shield. Failing to present aContinue reading “As a Fellow Knight pt. 2”

Hey, I’m Nikki! I am a nerdy geek who has a passion for writing, drawing, painting, and many other art media. Ever since I can remember, I’ve been crafting stories in my head whether they were original works or fanfictions. Over ten years ago, I started writing a novel and developing my skills as a writer, and, now, that novel is complete! I’m currently working on finding representation for it and turning my other stories into future novels! I do consider myself a Christian writer, but most of my stories are all fantasy and sci-fi based. Read more...
