If you have been on the internet the past two days you would have come across #Thedress. Certainly it is one of the weirdest topics to go viral on the web this year. So the dress is blue and black or white and gold does it matter. One important thing #TheDress highlights that the internet has connected people and this connected community of people will talk about anything. Down here in Africa jokes were going around about #TheDress in Office tea rooms. I found it hard to explain to my friends what #Thedress story was about though, the whole thing just sounded silly when I was halfway to explaining the story. For the manufacturers of #TheDress Roman Originals this was no silly matter sales on #Thedress are reported to have increasing by as much as 347%. #Thedress currently sales for $50 and Roman Originals intends to make #TheDress in white and gold although for now it is only available in blue and black.

The judged man

Here is an unedited extract of a fantasy novel that is screaming out to come out of my head.  For now I call the story ” The judged man”

Blog 1“We stood gazing at the setting sun with the valley to our back. Our legs were sore and our feet were full of blisters for we had covered a hundred leagues that day. I was glad the worst part of our journey was over for the trip through the valley had been a slow and perilous one.  Our number was now greatly reduced from the fifteen men that had made the trip from Nebukah to Ramulah. We had lost four men to the swamp demons in crossing the river Feruh and two others had been slain when we fought with the Kasha tribes. Of the remaining eight we each carried wounds of varying degrees and we were in sore need of food and rest. Our leader Jinda was not showing signs of slowing down clearly resting was nowhere near his plan we needed to reach Ramulah to find the Prophet Samuel. Ramulah was a Monastery of the great prophets. Situated at the edge of the world the prophets lived a secluded life away from civilisation. Only a few man had ever made the trip to Ramulah because it was usually a fatal journey. Only deep desperation would ever force man to undertake the trip and ours was a great need indeed. The lives of our whole village relied on us getting to Ramulah and gaining audience with the Prophet .”
