Weekly updates for

Ok we're going into the Christmas season now, and I'm hoping December will be moving right along with the book. I'm waiting for my proofer to finish it so I can get it all finalized and ready for people to enjoy.

I've updated the riddle and quote for those of you who follow that weekly trend. The reason I decided to change it to Monday is because it falls at the beginning of the week and all.

Starting on November 30, I'm going to begin writing a story that I'll update every friday in the stories section. My goal is to add 1,000 words per week and it is purely for fun. The adventure will revolve around an assassin named Linnae, aka The Blue Flower. She'll be fighting to escape a recent tragedy and forge a new life for herself, something her former employer has no intention of allowing. Should be fun.

Riddle, Quote, and Mules

Udated the Riddle and Quote. Also, here is an interesting article concerning writing. It's called Ten Common Mistakes A Writer Makes When Crafting A Novel.

 Finally, a blast from the past. When my father was a kid, he worked on a farm with nine brothers and sisters picking cotton. He said they had a pair of mules they used for plowing the fields and the mules were kept i a barn at one end of the field at night. When plowing away from the barn, the mules had to be coaxed and sometimes whipped to make them go. When they turned around to come back and saw the barn in the distance, they picked up the pace. Perceptive critters.
