For this first pick, I’m going to start with the most prominent character, Xandir. He is a powerful angel who broke heavenly law and was sentences to serve as a destroying angel until the End of Time. He is a powerful and quick-witted character, often seen brandishing swords and engaging in high-speed chances.
My first pick, for the role of Xandir would be: Gerard Butler.

Not only can this guy pull of intense roles, but he’s got the muscles to be convincing as an angel who’s job it is to destroy things. Just think of him as a Spartan…with wings. He doesn’t have to sing for this role (think Phantom of the Opera) and overall, I think he’d knock it out of the park.
What do you think? If not, who do you think would do better?
Have a great weekend!

Writing Tip of the Day:
Even when not doing NaNoWriMo, one of the best ways to motivate yourself is to keep track of your progress. For this reason, I always have a word count meter like the one you see above. Not only does it give you a visual representation of your progress towards the finish line, but it even tells you what percentage you have completed. There are many options out there, but here is the one that I use. http://svenja.atspace.com/wordmeter.html. Check it out. It’s very easy to use.
Blogger is really giving me trouble. For some reason, it is showing the entry form from last month. Please enter the blog hop here. Don’t forget to follow and leave a comment and to scroll down to the next post to find the other blogs on the hop!Thanks for all those who entered and left comments!
The Answer: Revelation
No takers on this one. Try the next one on for size:
What is the name of the “angell” that designed the LDS Salt Lake City Temple, as well as many other buildings in Salt Lake City?
Hint: His initals are T.O.A.
Just one more question on Monday! Not to late to step in and answer.
The first was Gabriel, who visited Mary to tell her of her special status as the mother of Jesus.
The second is Michael. (What a great name) He is the archangel who cast Satan and his followers out of Heaven.
For the third, I will accept either Lucifer or Appollyon.
I had a few other answers, such as Uriel and Raphael. These are traditional angels in many religions, but are not mentioned by name in the standard Old and New Testaments. They are mentioned in some apocryphal books that are included in some biblical version.
Congrats to: Alyssa Clark again, as well as T. J. Bronley.
The question for today to be answered on my Facebook page: Which book in the Bible mentions the word angel the most times?
I’m writing today from hot and humid Illinois. I’ve been here on vacation visiting family and having a great time. I see that my blog has reached the 99 follower mark. Thanks to all followers both old and new. Let’s see if we can tip the 100 mark soon.
When writing “The Last Archangel”, I read a lot about angels and listened to many songs about them. One great thing about angels is that there are so many great songs about them. Being the music buff that I am, I happen to own many of them.So, I wanted to play a little game on my blog.
