Prologue

My name is Saudorn Zalear, used to be a failed writer and was a past-time guitarist. Over the course of my short-lived writing career, I have published five short stories, countless of poems and two novels, which received from average to poor reviews ( except for my second novel ) which didn't help my income much. But thank to a generous government's ( namely Canada ) disability benefit program ( one year ago, I had a car accident which took away my ability to walk around as I'd usually done ), I didn't have to worry about my income anymore.

Anyway, I'm not gonna bother you with all the small details from my life prior to that day, the day I finally got the attention I'd longed for, as a writer. Yes, notwithstanding my previous failures ( after a period of depression, that is ), I wrote another novel to prove myself to my country and to the world that I could be compared to the great and legendary writers I adored; and by all that is good, I did it! My second book, titled 'Invasion of A Malevolent Entity', managed to become a best-seller and won the Trillium Book Award ( an annual book prize sponsored by the Government of Ontario ), helping me break through the thick web of harsh criticisms and derision and putting me on the 'Dais of The Great' ( my own pantheon of great writers ).

Unfortunately, things went horribly wrong six weeks after that. Six weeks after I became the Stephen King of Canada, something happened; something incredible, something impossible... Something... terrible. Somehow, someway, one of my fictional characters - a villain - became real; his name was Zulathulhu, and he was mad. He was mad at me because I hadn't kept my own promise of letting him stay alive at the end of the novel. He was mad and he wanted revenge. So, he destroyed my home, my city, my country and the world while making me witness it all.

No, what have I done?? I asked myself in shock and horror as I saw Zulathulhu's creations spread all over the Earth like a horrid, otherworldly pandemic they were.

And to make me even more desperate, he whispered in my ear with these words:

"This is not the end, O Arrogant Creator. I shall shatter your mean of existence by forcing you to watch your favorite realities of entertainment ravaged and devoured by my legions of wrathful madness. I shall make you cry out with anguish and hopelessness to the point of oblivion of the mind. Then, I shall transform you into one of my spawns and let you attest the might of my ever-expanding empire of chaos and darkness into many more realities that everything has to offer. And when all is said and done, I shall allow you to die, without hope, just as you have let me so"

With a great outcry of hate, I came at him in my wheelchair to punch him, to scratch him, to bite him, whatever it  took to make him furious enough to kill me with one swift strike; thus, denied his satisfaction of seeing me suffer. However, before I could even touch him, there was a blinding light in front of me. Then blinding light everywhere! So bright, so hot. And I heard my villain-creation and his spawns howl and shriek aloud with rage, fear and pain. I, too, screamed at the excruciating heat.

And then there were none, other than the blackness of either death, or unconsciousness...
Saudorn Zalear is a writer, living in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, in an alternate world. After the failures of writing in the past, he writes another book to prove people that he's not a bad writer, and it meets the success it deserves; however, something wrong happens, "something incredible, something impossible... Something... terrible". His fate beckons (OCxKorra)

Well...Its interesting to say the least.  I hope this will pick up so I can give it further opinions. Some words need to be structured differently and worded better, but a good start.  Sorry for the late reply I didn't place my opinion last time due to time.
