Verse, per Seuss (Inspiration)

Burning candleThe main problem with writing in verse is, if your fourth line doesn’t come out right, you’ve got to throw four lines away and figure out a whole new way to attack the problem. So the mortality rate is terrific.”

 Dr. Seuss

Swan Time

Now that “Living in Interesting Times” is out, I’ve been spending more time with “The Swans of War” , the sequel to my first urban fantasy “The Lands That Lie Between”.

In our first book, our heroine Morgan loses her job, moves cross country and then Good Bye Tol Eressea, Hello Eldamardiscovers that the worlds of magick are real, are very close to our own and that she has a crucial role to fill to prevent darkness from taking over both worlds. She goes on the run with Sam, her talking cat  and together they somehow escape multiple Unseelie hunters, make their way to the court, and do their bit to tip the scales to Seelie victory.

Well, it’s a year lately, and evil wants a rematch. An Unseelie villain is trying to stir up trouble between the Seelie court and the swan people, nomadic Germanic shape changers  with anger management issues. Meanwhile, a suspicious plague has laid most of the Seelie court low.

You guessed it- it’s Morgan and Sam to the rescue again.

I’m currently hard at it, untangling accents, laying out multiple story lines and weaving the action together as all of the characters rush towards one final confrontation.

(And there’s a winged kitten.)

Anyway, back to editing…

It’s Cold and Windy…

… and the drop in temperature and change for daylight savings has coincided with the beginnings of people beginning to get ready for the holidays. Planning. Shopping. Decorating.  Cooking. Wrapping.

It’s not surprising that more people are beginning to feel a little under the weather.Heal, word cloud concept

The holidays are a wonderful thing, but I’d like to remind you to take care of yourself while you  get ready to make merry with others.

  • Dress warm.
  • Get enough sleep
  • Drink more fluids
  • Listen to your body and give it what it needs
  • Pace yourself. You’ve got enough time to get your holidays together and a holiday with less bells and whistles but you feeling good is better than a holiday with all the trimmings including colds or flu.

Put yourself on your own holiday list and do what you need to in order to be healthy so you can enjoy those holidays
