Areaex I

I discovered this week that my characters like arguing. They started arguing in chapter 6, and now they're doing it again in chapter 7. This, incidentally, is further than I've managed to write before, and the story still looks like it is working...

Beeches and other trees

What have I been doing recently? For the most part, watching the leaves grow on trees.

No, I didn’t spend this spring in a chair beside the cherry trees in our backyard, measuring their leaves every half-hour. I did watch when their leaves began to appear, how many days or weeks it took for the leaves to form, and what trees showed yellow-green or purple-green shades in their early buds.

As the Lore-Mistress, I serve as High-Keeper of legends, thoughts, and dreams.

To put it simply, I am a writer by trade and training. No, I am not yet a renowned novelist. Stating that I am a writer means merely that I intend to sit down at regular intervals and record words on paper—whether actual plant fiber or the electronic imitation you are reading right now. As a writer, I intend to write at least a certain number of words a day. This is called a ‘quota,’ but it can also be referred to as a deadline.

If things go well, those words will go into a novel, a magazine article, or some form of actual work. If not, then I might get around to making another blog post. I also hope to post some of my work here for you to read. I hope you enjoy it.

Respectfully yours,

Audrey E.
The Lore-Mistress and High-Keeper of Legend.
