My Weekly Short Story: PIL’s FIFTEENTH BIRTHDAY

Morning often arrived with the beckoning call of nature but on Pil’s fifteenth birthday the sound awakening her was something new and exciting; the hypnotic swish of the ocean.

Pil stretched beneath the sublime silk covers of her large bed cushioned with the softest feathers before standing, walking over to the deck of her sprawling bedroom. Her sleeveless silk white nightgown brushed against the perfectly polished wooden floor as she shuffled sleepily forward. She pushed aside the billowing white curtains that acted as the entrance to the wooden deck, breathing in deeply as the moist, warm air coated her bare skin. The unmistakable saltwater and fishy scent of the ocean greeted her instantly.

I’ve Got Some More Characters to Unveil for my Short Novel!

Guess what’s happening this Friday? I’m digitally releasing my FIRST EVER short novel. Can you believe it? I know I can’t. You may be seeing the next Tomi Adeyemi in the works here. At least…I hope so.

So, to celebrate the upcoming release of a novel I’ve been working on for over a year now, here’s a look at the four other starring characters in my novel titled PIL. Enjoy!

While these are two very important elements to the unparalleled mystique of these movies there is yet another reason why I continue to watch these films in sheer awe.

Growing up, I have always been a fan of fictional fantasy. There was something so imaginatively awe-inducing in the thought of dragons and elves, strange creatures and magical fairies, terrifying orcs and greedy goblins. The Lord of the Rings took these creatures from fantasy and brought them to life in a way that still hasn’t been properly duplicated on the big screen.

Whether we’re talking about the mystifying elves and their jaw-dropping cities or the evil Nazgul that inject a legitimate sense of fear into the viewers’ heart, this movie not only tells an epic story but also gives justice to the otherworldly things within the world of Middle-Earth that could’ve EASILY looked and felt super cornballs but surprisingly didn’t. So, on that note, here’s a closer look at this element of the groundbreaking trilogy. Continue reading Why ‘The Lord of the Rings’ Is Amazing: The Mystical Creatures and Lands
