    And so it starts. Bit by bit, what I have written in the last couple of years is being posted. Right now there are the prologue and the first two chapters posted. I’ll post one or two chapters per week from now on. I’m gathering them on the Mother of Crow book page to make it easier for you.

    Mother of Crow – Sundered World 2. That’s what I’m working on. Slowly, painfully, bit by bit, and scene by scene. Damn, this shit is hard. This building a place and an emotion, a tension and a world, characters worth bothering with. Do I have any of that in this story? Or is it just a collection of words and interesting descriptions of thoughts and things that will move no one? Neither to tears nor laughter.

    I’m not sure.

    But I can’t let the story go. It lives in the back of my mind. and it changes. Characters fade and appear to freeze in some diffuse edge of the canvas where I build my world. Other come forth, wondering where they can lay their story, their thoughts, their history. And it all happens without me doing any writing for long stretches of time. Are those creatures and humans building something I cannot yet see? Do they speak amongst each other about events I have not been able to discover?

    Maybe.

    I think, as I write this, sensing them stir in my periphery in part glee at my powerlessness, part frustration over my inability to acknowledge the obvious, that yes they do. And it seems clear to me that I should let them. And hope that the next time I put my fingers to the keyboard that I will be able to allow them to tell me what they know.

    A character

    There is a dragon. Truth is that he is not quite a dragon. But he is not quite man-made. He had a name but that was before. He is restless. Ill at ease. These humans, what do they want? Oh, so that’s it is it? Very well. Anywhere but here. Anywhere. Come then. Come.

    hated phrase of the day:

    “This word may not agree with the rest of the sentence.”
