A shift is needed…

NaNoWriMo Jounrnal 2015


I didn’t get to do nearly as much writing done as I wanted to.  I only got a little over the daily word count.  But that’s okay, I’m not behind by any means, so I’m happy.

So far for this story, I’ve shared the plot of the story and even gave you an excerpt, but now I would like to share some information about the main character for this year’s NaNoWriMo novel!

Meet Symon DeMyn, the primary protagonist of The Priest of Tears.

Meet Symon DeMyn

Name: Symon DeMyn

Nickname: Sy

Age: 24

Hair: Short, fine, blond hair

Skin: Tan

Favorite color: Sky green (the sky is green in the setting of this story)

Favorite Music: The sound of a lyre

Food: He’s not picky, he’ll eat anything

Likes: Swordplay, drinking, his friends, his fiancé (Beth), working

Dislikes: Books, dealing with angry people, confrontation

Most prized possession: The wedding ring he will wear

Why?: Because he loves Beth

Personality flaws: His anger

Personality strengths: His genuine good heart

Symon is a simple man from the common village of Tiddleway. He’s the owner of the Green Sky Goods and Trade, the local shop.  Because Tiddleway is on the main road that runs across the nation of Vestervale, his shop gets a lot of business. Symon is engaged to marry Beth Stayn, the girl he’s been courting for the last three years.

Over the years, Symon has learned several forms of proper swordplay from the old sword master Wynston Haze, a retired member of the Crown Paladin, the order of knights who protect the royal family. Like many others, Symon has no respect for King Kaylon Daylyn, called the Craven King, for the man’s lack of backbone. But Symon knows his place, he knows that he’ll never be anything more than a shop owner with a family, and he’s come to accept that.

Symon loves stories of the Mythic Clerics, and their mighty battles of old, and their powerful Mythic Blades that gave them their power

The sad thing is that Beth is killed in the first chapter (I know, I mean to my characters).  But that spurs him on to find the man who did it.  But I’ll save him for another post.

Current word count for The Priest of Tears: 19,539/50,000!

Until I write again,

Andrew Ronzino, Level 2 Slayer
