RIP Sir Pratchett

Sorry, Everyone. There will be no new story bit today. Instead, I want to take a moment to talk about one of my personal heroes. You all may have heard that yesterday the great fantasy author Sir Terry Pratchett passed away due to a severe chest infection. He was a great writer and his Discworld novels in particular have brought joy to so many people, myself included.

I encourage all of you to spend some time in quiet reflection and look at some of his works. He was a shining example of how to bring wit and passion into ones’ writing and he will be greatly missed but it’s also important to note that his legacy will endure as long as we remember his spectacular books, interesting characters and immersive world set on a disc floating through space on the back of four elephants, balanced on a great turtle.

Rest in peace, Sir Pratchett, you will be sorely missed.

About ktulu007

I don’t really like talking about myself, but for the curious I’m Deutsch. I’m the second oldest of three children, four if you count my adopted sister. We largely grew up without a father. Writing has been a major passion for me since I was small. I like to write online because it offers me some freedom to experiment with different genres and provides me with more of an audience than I would normally have access to. One of my bigger influences has always been my youngest sister. She’s very socially aware, an excellent judge of quality when it comes to writing and very supportive of my efforts. Whenever I write I ask myself “would she find major problematic elements in this that I need to change?” and I try to be socially responsible enough and good enough to be as good of a writer as she thinks I am.
