Oh my poor neglected blog! I don't really know why I haven't had an update for a few weeks. Really I have no good excuse. So lets catch up.
First: I finished the rough draft of my novel length work. Hooray! I decided to take a few weeks off from it so I can come in with a fresh perspective on the first draft.
In the meantime though, I've started a short story. After 'Flowers' I had a minor panic attack thinking 'oh crap I have to come up with something else now! I'll never be able to do that!" Then Leolin walked into the picture. Leolin who, at the age of six, killed a man with his voice and ever since has only spoken through puppets for fear of harming someone.
Second: These things came into my life
Llyan--a lot smaller than her namesake-- and Roo have been with me a week and have been full of playing and kitten snuggles. They have also walked all over my laptop and at one point deleted a chunk of my Leolin story (luckily I recovered 99% of it).
Third: getting back to reading. I'm finally forcing myself to sit down and read some more. I go through these weird reading dry spells which aren't good for a writer, so I'm trying to break it.
That's all from my little corner of the world. I hope all you writers and readers out there are making and reading some excellent stories!
