How to Fight Your Battles and Win Every Time
And they say you learn nothing of value from video games...
As I’ve fought through the trenches of my problems and personal baggage, one of the major truths that often stood as an obstacle to any solution offered by a friend often came as a whisper in the back of my mind:
‘You don’t know me. You don’t know what I’ve been through…’
In hindsight, these words were a knee-jerk instinct to push away anyone that offered to relate to the emotional injuries I’ve suffered. Those scars were mine and as much as I didn’t want to admit to it, I would sooner give in to my personal demons than let anyone else try to take a peek at my feelings in an attempt to fix them.
Thankfully, I’ve grown since then and realize that not all battles should have to be one-on-one boss fights.
Still, I had already experienced also enough to know that, much like most video games, even if you do have a team of support, backing you up with chain attacks, health potions, and regenerative spells, it’s ultimately your final blow that kills the beast.
You’re the one who’s in control of the game and main storyline.
Soon entering the world of Elysium.
I have been hard at work in shaping the finer details for the characters and plotline of my first working novel fiction: Elysium.
Without wanting to give too much away– It's a story about ghosts, geeks, love, and dark laughs.
The story of Elysium will be told in the perspective of a ghost named Jacksen and a girl named Erin.
As I progress towards the completion of this project, I hope to share some of my favorite moments and excrepts (worth sharing without spoiling).
Stay tuned to get a sneak peek of the hidden city in the sky, Elysium.
