Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge Image 2016

The Guidelines are simple.

  1. Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in Englishas my style, which is 5 syllables for the first line, 7 for the second, and 5 for the third, but you can use what you like. The link above has links within it to articles about how to write Haibun, Tanka, and even a new form I created called Freku. You can also do the 3/5/3 form if you likeinstead of the 5/7/5 that I usually use. Write, share, and have fun. For syllable help visit HowManySyllables.com. (You would be surprised at how many syllables some words actually have.)
  2. The two words can be used as you…

  1. http://www.autumnwriting.com/writing-the-big-epic-fantasy-scenes-tips-and-tricks/ I pretty much follow this advice, using deep pov and sticking with one character from one chapter and then move to the alternate character in the next which allows for the next scene of the battle. I only use two povs though, not an antagonist’s. It’s hard to get a reader to care too much to stick with chapters done in the antagonist’s pov, I think.
  2. https://legendsofwindemere.com/2017/03/22/when-a-series-goes-dark/ Do you start off planning for your stories to take a dark turn or does it just happen? Mine got darker as I go back and edit. I see it going even darker in the books ahead.

Let Them Eat… Potatoes!

From the Inca Empire to Queen Marie Antoinette of France, to the Russian patissiers (pastry chefs), traveled a simple vegetable, to be transformed into a delectable pastry.

Here is this civilization which, starting in the early 13th century, in three hundred years grew into an immense empire and, by the time it was conquered by the Spanish, occupied most of South America. According to historical records, it has spread somewhat by conquest, but mostly by peaceful assimilation. The Incas had an elaborate system of religion, culture, and societal structure, yet to the European eyes, they were missing the staples of civilization: the wheel and the animals to drag wheeled vehicles, the metals, such as iron and steel, and, most importantly, the literacy. No wonder Europeans considered them savages, but objectively, “the Incas were still able to construct one of the greatest imperial states in human history” (McEwan, 2006).
