• Pom has important news!

         “The portals are open,” cried Pom. “The portals are open!” He ran down the flippy-floppy steps nearly tripping over his long fluffy ears.      Along Rony Trail, the flowers were singing their melodious song and the butterflies hummed in harmony while fluttering in a delicate dance. Pom’s heart leaped with joy and ached to join in with the regular forest festivities. Now wasn’t the time! ‘The portals are open,’ he told himself. He had to tell the others in the village.      Past the break in the trees, nestled in the middle of the forest, the quiet village rested.      Pom dashed into the middle…

  • And then it was a new year…

    Happy New Year! “Tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it… yet” – L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables. Hello friends, How are you? Did you have a good winter holiday/celebrations? This is a new day and a new year with nothing but the future ahead of us. What will you do with your time? Do you have big goals? Little goals?  Let’s celebrate your wins. Yes, I am aware of the challenges that we are facing and will face, but in the end, I agree with the quote above from Anne of Green Gables. Every day is a fresh start. No mistakes. (I learned that quote in kindergarten!) Yet,…

  • New Journals

    A Quick Note! Summer is almost over, (aww) but Autumn is arriving (yeah!) School has now returned and I feel like my schedule is back on track. Though I suppose that I could’ve kept a schedule going throughout the summer but I was either hunched over my computer writing my¬†first draft to my latest novel (Prince Noralv: Edge of Shadows, Book Two!) or I’ve been going on family outings and gatherings. My summer has been full and I am grateful. Now with Autumn (Fall as some prefer to call it) on the horizon, I am so very in the mood for sweaters, books, stationery, fire in the fireplace, pumpkin spice…

  • I joined NaNoWriMo!

    Well, I have just signed up for my first NaNoWriMo! Dear Lord, what have I done?  I am not writing a novel from scratch in the month of November, but rather pushing through the final chunk of my story. I have, so far, written my fantasy in a single point of view and I feel it needs a secondary point of view. Joining NaNoWriMo, I hope, will keep me grounded at my computer to get through to the end, and perhaps, I’ll meet fellow NaNo friends to encourage each other to persevere and to finish what we have started.  Here’s to early mornings and late nights of writing! And tea.…

  • Choosing a Fantasy Race

    I admit it. I, from time to time, have fun playing those silly quiz games; you know the ones – What part of the world you really belong? What era best suits you? What Jane Austen character are you? Take this quiz to find out! – type quizzes. Well, some time ago I too took one roughly called ‘What fantasy creature are you?’ It asked various questions like what is your favourite colour and what is your ideal place to live? I answered them to the closest honest answer. My result: a fairy. I wasn’t expecting that, but I wasn’t disappointed. I took the quiz again, just because, and got…
