Mea Perscriptio Prima

Mea Perscriptio Prima
My First Entry

Salvete omnes!

I'm new at this, so what you see here might look screwy at first. It would probably be a good idea if I experimented with this a little bit.

My fiancee Melissa once said, "I'd hate to have a blog. People don't need to know about my life unless they love me, and if they love me they already know about my life." I agreed with her about that when she said that. Lately, however, I've changed my mind. Perhaps readers would actually find my live amusing. If other members post comments here, and they continue to do so, I'll keep on adding material to this blog. How does that sound?

You might notice the non-English words in the title and such. People who know me also know that I'm fascinated in the Latin language. Here are the translations of the Latin phrases that I've used:

  • Ephemeris Interretialis Diaphani: Diaphanus' Online Journal

  • Vita Temporaque Iani Andreae Milleri: The Life and Times of Ian Andreas Miller

  • Mea Perscriptio Prima: My First Entry
So, now you know what the Latin phrases say. If I continue writing in this blog, you'll see more Latin phrases. I'll use this blog to discuss certain aspects of the Latin language. There is a lot of bad Latin out there, and sometimes I just have to spend some time to vent.

On a not-so-related note, I'm working on a fictional story that includes several women from history. So far, I have chosen seven of them: Marie Antoinette, Bonnie Parker, Annie Oakley, Clara Schumann, Fanny Hensel, Anne Frank, and Margot Frank. My friend Gina Biggs, who is a talented artist, drew this excellent picture for me:

I was worried that I could get into some legal problems because my story includes Anne and Margot Frank. I really don't need the Anne Frank House to come after me. However, it seems that I really don't need permission to include the girls in my story. My story at least needs to include a disclaimer saying that it's a work of alternative, historical fiction and written without the authorization of the representatives for the parties involved.

Now I have another thing to be concerned about. You see, I want to present my story as a manga or an online comic. I think that I'm a pretty decent writer, but I'm not much of an artist. My fiancee Melissa (I call her Sponsa, Latin for "Fiancee") is also a good writer, but she isn't an artist, either. If I had the talent to drew the comic, I would go ahead and do it. At this point, I'm looking for an artist to collaborate with me. Are there any artists out there who would be willing to work with me?

That's about it for now. Valete omnes!
