Dragons

Quote du Jour:
“When there are no more dragons to slay, how will you make a living, knight?”
–Draco, Dragonheart

I tinkered on the serial yesterday, but did no major writing. I finished issue 117 and started 118, but didn’t get too far into it. I’m having one of those days where I feel like the cobwebs need to be scraped out of my head.

Last night before I passed out, I scribbled some new pages on the dragon story (excerpt posted below). It had been in the back of my mind for quite a while so I figured I’d get more written on it. And since all I did was stare at a blinking cursor yesterday, I needed a change of pace.

Anyhoo… so I wrote on the dragon story last night, fleshing out the two main characters, Brenden and Fyre. Wrote some dialogue between them. Fell asleep with the pen in my hand. Dreamed about dragons all night.

Then at 3:15, my son comes crawling in bed with me. He told me a dragon had broken his bedroom window. Apparently, he had been dreaming about dragons too. Weird. 😯

And I’d like to mention that my little son is a bed hog. I was on the edge while he kicked me from about 3:30 to 5 am when I finally put him back in his bed. That was a mistake, let me tell you. Because when I came back to bed, I fell asleep hard and fast. Had more weird dreams. Didn’t want to wake up this morning. That’s probably why I have the cobwebs in my head.

It took all of my strength to get going this morning. I hate that feeling too. BUT, today, I’m leaving work early and I’m getting all my hair cut off. WOOHOO. I am so glad. AND I’m getting my eyebrows waxed too. I can’t wait. I need this so bad. I’m tried of my hair in my face, on my neck, and just being a royal pain in the arse. So, very much looking forward to getting it cut for the first time in about a year. Yes, folks, you read that right. A year.

Got some discouraging news about KeepItComing’s future. Don’t want to announce anything yet as it may not happen, but still… it’s discouraging and leaving me feeling so not motivated.
