I've been reading FanFictions for years now and even written a few incomplete ones on paper. Now i've finally gotten round to writing one on the my computer and have decided to put it up for everyone to have a read.

As it turns out this God Slaying Blade Works is proving to be surprisingly easy to write, i've only been at it for a couple of months and it's already longer than anything i've ever written before. Lets hope i can keep it up.

27/09/13 - As of today it's been one year since I first put up the initial chapter of God Slaying Blade Works. Honestly when I did it was just as a whim, I’d noticed that there weren't any Fate/Stay Night/Campione crossovers. Since I’d quite enjoyed the first half of the Campione anime and was a huge Fate fan I thought 'why not'. At the time I’d recently gotten my first laptop and was trying to write an original fiction, however my style was a bit on the rough side so I thought to get a bit of practice by finally putting up a fanfiction after years of reading them.

I honestly never expected it to be as well received as it was. Now here I am, it's been one year and I’ve already written at least a couple of books worth of stuff and it is, in my humble opinion, pretty well written. It's my hope that once I finish GSBW I’ll be able to turn my attention back to my original story, 'The Golden Prophecies', and finish them off. Who knows in a couple of years they might be as popular as the Harry Potter series.

Yes, I’m well aware that that's probably just wishful thinking, but please allow me my dreams, no matter how wild they may be.

Anyway I just wanted to offer thanks to all the readers that have supported me up to this point and to say that I really hope to continue to write these fics as well, or even better, as I’ve managed to up to this point.

23/07/14 - Well, things have been a bit hectic since I got back from my holiday without internet, but I thought i'd write a bit here about what happened, at least as far as my writing goes anyway. When I first started writing the Golden Prophecies I was lucky if I could do 400 words a night, imagine my surprise when I found myself belting off 1000 words per night easily, and not just that, the quality of what I’d written had definitely improved considerably. All in all I think that it's safe to say that my fanfiction writing has improved my ability considerably. I'm definitely going to have to see about working in more time to work of my original work during the weekends.

25/12/19 – Hello my dear readers. I know it’s been a while since you heard from me, so I thought I’d write something here as a Christmas present to let you all know what’s happening. First off, I have not given up on my fanfictions, they are simply on hiatus. What’s happened is that back in November last year I lost my job as the business I worked for changed hands. It wasn’t too bad, and I had plenty of savings, but finding a decent job was . . . challenging. With so much time on my hands I decided to devote myself to writing the new novel I was working on.

As some of you might know I have been working on a book for several years, but that one, a high fantasy book based around dragons in a new world f my creation, ended up being problematic to write. I confess that I was heavily influenced by several popular publications, such as The Wheel of Time and Game of Thrones, and that got meshed up in my own ideas to produce a somewhat complicated mess. I think there still is real potential there, but I was basically trying to write Lord of the Rings before getting the Hobbit off the ground. Not to mention I’d inadvertently walked into a whole bunch of clichés without really realizing it. Basically, it was way too big and ambitious for a first work, and I found myself swamped in the details.

Then, back in November of 2017, I started a new novel. This was somewhat less ambitious, set in the modern world rather than a world I created from scratch. It came along well though, and by the time I lost my job I’d already written more than 100,000 words to it. The book, which I STILL haven’t thought of a title for, was the first in a series I’m thinking of calling The Divine Blood series, and I decided to devote myself to it as much as I could as of today it is only about two or three chapters away from being completed, though I imagine there’s still plenty of editing to be done even when its finished.

I now have a decent job and am hoping to have it available to buy for any who are interested. Rest assured that I will return to my fanfictions once I get it published, though my writing will slow down due to me working on my novel’s sequel. Don’t worry, I will get to my Sixth Holy Grail War.

Anyway, have a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.
