Krystal Wade to my blog, today she will share how she manages to work, be a mom, a writer and a blogger. She is a member of organized hitchhiking for eleven years, her 50 mile commute gives her plenty of time to zone out and think about characters in full, brilliant details. She lives just outside Washington, D.C with her husband and three children.
I wear many hats. Mother, Wife, Employee, Writer—these are just a few, but they are the most important. There are times when I’m not sure which one to wear, or times I have many on at once.
I hate the Mother/Wife combo!
“We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us happy is something to be enthusiastic about.”
Richard is our hero; he is a simple woods guide from Hartland a place where there is no magic. Kahlan is our co-heroine, she is from The Midlands and a place where magic flourishes, and she is also a Confessor and therein is destined to live a lonely life as Confessors are feared because of their powers.
Confessors are a race of women sworn to find the truth and are the justice or peacekeepers of the Midlands, their decisions are final and binding and once they unleash their power on you, you lose your free will and you’re only thought is how to please your mistress.
Our story begins when Kahlan is on her mission to find the Seeker and help him defeat the evil tyrant that has threatened to wipe out all Confessors and be supreme ruler of all territories. Richard sees her while she is on the run and goes to help - Richard has no idea who or what she is and not once the danger is passed they go their separate ways. She eventually finds the Wizard who is the only one allowed to "name" a Seeker - Zedd, introduces her to Richard and proceeds to explain the legend of the Seeker. A seeker is a hero who arises in a time of great trouble and is a champion of the people; he is aided by the Sword of Truth which though he is only one man helps him fight with the strength of many and all the Seekers who have gone before him.
