We've finally come to the end of another month. They speed by when you're busy, don't they? So I'm going to get these out and start up a new challenge or set of challenges for February. Also in February, I'm planning to share the first Indie Author Interview with Robin. I wanted to start off with the author who I wasn't able to interview back in November. Her work is perfect for February, though. Stay tuned and you'll see what I mean. :)
For now, let me share my challenge responses!
#AuthorFAQChallenge Days 24 - 31
Here's the rundown:
#FantasyWIPJan20 Days 24 - 31
The prompts for the final week were an interesting blend of easy and OMGareyouforreal? Read on and you'll see what I mean. LOL
#1WordPromptChallenge Days 24 - 31
Here were the prompts for the last week of January. I really enjoyed this round of the one word prompt challenge.
Maybe that was it. Maybe what was required was a leap of faith. Did she dare? Her heart rate sped up, even though she fought to maintain even breathing. Dear, Azilet’zal in Shinnali! Did she dare? Every move Se Lyn made was meant to toss her over the edge. And even she knew that mother flyers sometimes pushed their little ones out of their nests when they weren’t brave enough to try their wings on their own.
He didn’t know of anything else to do so he gathered her close and just held her for a bit until the shudders died down and her breathing was more even. He guided her to his cleansing closet and left her there while he grabbed something else for her to wear besides his coverlet. “You can borrow some garb. Here,” and he handed her a shirt that would probably be a little too big and an equally too large pair of breeches. At least the latter had a string to draw them up. “They’ll be too big, I guess but if you’re still uncomfortable, you can keep the coverlet. I’ll make kafkhet, eiya?”
Lost in thought, he climbed the two steps up onto his porch. He reached out to open the door latch when he spotted Ya’el curled up in a ball fast asleep at his feet. Her bare skin beckoned his touch but she’d likely tear him up and feed him to the draconisi.
#SelfEditing Challenge Recap
I started working on character profiles in earnest this week...as much as my crazy schedule has allowed. I've also determined to get at least one nice scene, or maybe a whole chapter, edited well enough to share in my newsletter, which goes out tomorrow. I guess you'll find out tomorrow whether it's just a scene or a whole chapter but I hope you'll enjoy it, no matter the length of the passage.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you've enjoyed this little glimpse into my life and my work. Come back next Friday to see what new challenges I'm tackling and how my edit of Surge and The Tale of Outh'n Durr are coming along. And don't forget to check out next Wednesday's book review post. I haven't been able to schedule another indie author interview, so that's on hold for this season. The next one will be in spring. See you next week!
