Questions for Mordraug (Starbloods)!

It's time for a call for questions! This is Mordraug. He is one of my antagonist from my high fantasy series Starbloods. I'm rewriting Starbloods for NaNoWriMo this year, so I want to flesh out Mordraug some more through a character interview! Let me tell you a little bit about him!

Mordraug is a five hundred and forty-two year old werewolf. Before he became immortal, he was a bandit pillaging the lands. When he was lost in a snow storm with his last twelve men, they encountered the ancient wolf god Mwog, who granted them the power to transform into wolves and immortality. They became the first werewolves. Now they believe it's his sacred duty to turn all humans into werewolves like him. 

Mordraug travels with his caravan of werewolves biting humans and expanding his pack. He is ruthless and destroys cities and villages to achieve his goals. His only true friend is the man who raised him who is also a werewolf named Ioto. Everyone else he only cares to exploit and use for his own gain.

Not long after he became a werewolf, he lost one of his men to one of the werewolves' few weakness, a direct stab in the heart. Because of this he knew he had to protect his heart to achieve full immortality. That is when he met the sorceress Vanmoriel who made a plate out of the metal of a comet to weld to his chest to permanently protect his heart. Since then he has been in love with her to an obsessive degree and served her every wish. 

Leave your questions in the comments or in the form if you'd wish to remain anonymous or if you're having trouble with the comments. Mordraug will answer them on December 16th! Thank you!

What Being an Editor for a Website has Taught Me

September was my two year anniversary being with Geeks Under Grace. Two years ago, I had just left a really difficult job and I noticed this really cool organization my friend was a part of. Geeks Under Grace is a site where Christian meets geek. We review movies, games, and more with a Christian perspective. We also have a newscast and devotionals for the geek crowd. I love the vision. So I asked to join and the owner said yes. 

At first I was going to be a writer, but then my internet was out for two or three weeks (Thank you, Comcast) and I almost lost that position. When near the end of that long and extremely aggravating time my friend and colleague Casey, Editor-In-Chief of GUG, asked me to be an editor because she needed one desperately. Now I'm the head movie editor and I have six writers under my wing.

Interview with Vanmoriel (Starbloods)


Hey, everyone! It's time for this month's interview and it's with one of my villains from Starbloods, Vanmoriel. I mentioned her in the first Beautiful Books and in the Six-Questions Character Challenge. She's my most evil of all villains, so this should be an ... interesting interview. (Please pray for my life.) *turns to Vanmoriel in interview chair, tense* Hello, Vanmoriel.

Hello, Victoria. *sitting straight with her legs crossed, has hands in her lap delicately, has a light British accent*

Shall we begin?

Writing Lessons from Movies: The Incredibles

The Incredibles is one of my favorite Pixar movies if not my favorite Pixar movie. I love the concept of a superhero story set in the 1960s. I love the superhero family. And the dialogue is just gold. The characters are fleshed-out and so likable. Pixar is known for their amazing story writing, so I believe it's about time that I've highlighted some writing lessons from one of their movies. As Mr. Incredible would say, "Show time."
