A December Prayer

In the touch of a friend,
In the breathe of a child,
In the eyes of a soldier coming home
To his mother’s grateful smile,
In the sight of falling snow,
And the memories it brings,
In the season when you find some peace,
In the simple tender things,
Open your heart and look around, listen… listen…

Hear the song within a silence,
See the beauty when there’s nothing there,
Sing a song within a silence
That hope and love are everywhere,
And when the quiet night is falling
Watch an angel dancing in the air
To the song, the song within the silence
a December Prayer, a December Prayer.

In the strength of your hand as it holds unto mine,
and the promise that we’re not alone
In this place and time,
In the gifts that you give, I am humbled and amazed
Far beyond this day and time of year
We are in a state of grace.
Open your heart and look around, listen… listen…

Hear the song within a silence,
See the beauty when there’s nothing there,
Sing a song within a silence
That hope and love are everywhere,
and when the quiet night is falling
Watch an angel dancing in the air
To the song, the song within the silence
a December Prayer, a December Prayer.

The Novel Ends

As soon as one saw the other, they began to cry.  It was a strange thing for both of them to do at their age, but it could not be helped.  For all of what their past holds, this moment seemed so surreal.  What Broderick dreamed of the most when he was a child was no longer a dream, but reality. “You made it, brother,” Farerick finally said, and embraced Broderick with a smile.

Well folks, tomorrow is the last day of NANOWRIMO, and I hope everything has gone well for all the participants.

Now then, I have been waiting a whole month to say this.. Ehem… I WON! Ehem…thank you for listening.

It was a long/short month, for sure.

My final word count was 61,274.  This is the longest book I have ever done in my life!! Twenty-Six chapters, 374 pages, and I think I like them all. (I hope I like them all).

Here is a quick summary for you:

When Riverwood is in danger of going into war with the goblins, the ill-stricken king calls for his finest Horseman, Broderick, to lead his men to fend off their enemy.  During this time of preparation, the king dies, bringing forth his son, Deyorn, to the throne.      
Now king Deyorn—with bitter emotions towards Broderick—and a little persuasion from one of the local lords—decides not to send the men into battle.  Broderick must now fight with himself whether he should follow his king’s orders and have the possibility of his homeland going into desolation; or disobey and  have the possibility of being discharged from his position.
 

And that is it.

Now, I know NANO is over, but that doesn’t mean you should stop writing.  Keep at it!
