Oh, Kali, teaching us new words today, I see…Speaking of which, the Language Guide has been updated. I think of all the words to make in a language, swear words are some of the most fun. They have to be easy to say quickly, but meaty enough that you can pack a lot of frustration into them.
For those of you familiar with my Urban Fae Character, Frost, I have to say I think he and Kali would get along really well. Or try to kill each other within five minutes after meeting each other. They both have a stubborn streak a mile wide, and one thing they absolutely hate is people pushing them around. Even if said people are goddesses of unknown powers. Or, in Frost’s case, Dark Lords, Elves, and Demons.
Where does this come from? Hard to say. I developed an early dislike of bullies which solidified in the seventh grade, (THERE is a year that no amount of money would convince me to re-live) but ultimately I think there’s more to it than that. I very much like to believe that the future is what I make of it — that I will fail or succeed by my own efforts. I take on a lot of projects, because from the outset of all of them there is no question in my mind that I will succeed if I try hard enough. Realizing that this is not always the case has always been tough to swallow. People get sick and die, my abilities are not always good enough, and often what I’m reaching for turns out to be beyond my grasp.
Just like Kali, that never really stops me from trying to defy those limitations anyway.
How much of your life do you believe is within your power to change?
