Pershendes

Post  Suzana on Thu Mar 12, 2009 10:01 pm

eh... I think i might have spelled it wrongly. Anyways,

Hi, I am known as Zana by most of my friends. I just want you guys to know that I am not Albanian. However, I am learning about the Albanian culture and learning to speak, write, and understand in Albanian. A lot of this has to do with me writing my book and hoping to get it published. Um. . . what else should I say? I'm not much of an introduction person so I guess I'll end it here.

faleminderit and thanks.

Thanks Zana for your introduction, and since you are trying to learn Albanian, all I have to say about it : ' ishte shumë prezantim i veçantë '.

Leka, your Shkodrance is a very sweet dialect, but Zana has a long jorney to do until she lears standard Albanian, let alone the dialect.

By the way Zana, Shkodrance is the language(albanian dialect) of Shkodra a city in Albania which used to be the capital of ancient Illyria, and the second largest city in Europe(after Thebe).



Shkodra coin.

Felimenderit/ about my book.

Post  Suzana on Sat Mar 14, 2009 12:57 am

felimenderit shume cdonjera.

Thank you all for such a wonderful greeting. Zeus, I am sorry i did not catch all of what you said there. Something about more presentation?

Ok, yes, I am still not fully understanding the two different dialects. (at least I haven't memorized which one is which yet or remember the name.)

Ah about my book. Well, I am a romantic/adventurer type of person. Anything mystical really inspire me such as fairytales. My book is going to be part of the magic/adventure/romance type of book. Mainly for those who are very into books or movies like Lord of the Rings, or Harry Potter.

The only difference is that I have decided to use the albanian legend/folklore about these zanas i've been hearing about by my albanian buddies here in alaska. The reason i got into it was when my best friend whom I call my vellacko, told me the meaning of Zana and he was the one who told me the myth. And I got inspired.

Now, my book is about a young albanian girl who finds out she is only half albanian. She, of course is a bit upset until she realizes that she is gifted with the powers of the zanas. She also realizes that the world of the zanas is in grave danger from an ever growing evil and in order to protect her own world of Earth, she has to help them defeat the evil from leaving the zanas' realm. However, they have already invaded Earth and she is a protector of Earth.

And that is all I wish to reveal. I don't want to get into it too much or I'll end up telling you guys all about it. Now, the thing that really makes this book interesting is that it defies the law of the typical hero rules. Usually heros are born by something happening in their past, ie a sudden past pain, or some type of typical chemicals and what not. My young girl, however, was born with the powers. Nothing bad happens in her life she lives now. I've chosen to give her the name Drita because it means light and since my book has a dark and light element too it, I thought it was very fitting. She ends up becoming Zana E Malit as the people in my book call her. Like the superheros, she has two identities. Drita and Zana. But I have choosen to allow her to have two personalities.

I depitcked Drita to be more of a quiet, shy and conservitive type of girl. She doesn't have much friends, and has a hard time trying to please what her parents expect of her. Although she is very smart, she hates school and chooses to remain an Above Average student rather then an A student like her parents want. Her mother is a well known doctor in her little town and her father a well known scientist in the big city. Drita often feels very pressured by her parents.

As Zana E Malit, I depick her more outgoing, rude, arrogant and a loud type of girl, often saying what she thinks to any and everyone regardless of what other's say or think. This alter ego of hers is what makes her powerful, but is also her downfall.

I will say, she is aided by a few friends. Jehona is her best friend who is more of the popular type of girl who is your typical high school girl. To her, high school is boys, study, boys, and more boys. But unlike Drita, Jehona is a straight A student and upbeat.

Edon is actually the damsel in distress in my story. He is always being taken by the evil and Zana is the one who often saves him. (Sorry guys, there are too much girls in distress. It's time for the guys to take the sub-role.)

Spirit-Zana is a spirit in which Drita can only see. She is the confidant to Drita and alerted Drita to her true identity. Sort of like a guardian.

My story also has a bit of the other legends from different countries like the Russian Fire Bird, american beasts, and my personal favorite from my own culture, the Shamen. They all play minor roles, but they help to move my book along.

This book will probably be more popular with the teenagers and younger generations which is ok. Anyways, I think that is all i will tell. My biggest problem is that I need to have good pictures of castles in Albania so that I can describe them as best I could with maybe changing a bit of the castle to be more mythical ancient. The beginning of my book starts off in the far past and will end up leading into a smooth transition into the modern day and age of Drita.

There you have it and again thanks.

I think you should not worry about that cause we are Albanian, and still we do have words from other dialect, which we don't understand Very Happy
