Today is the day!
Look at how many people have signed up! I'm thrilled, I tell you, THRILLED! And THANK YOU ALEX for volunteering to co-host without my even asking! You are da bomb... no wait, the Ninja!
The rules were simple. All you had to do was sign up in the linky thingy, grab the banner, and make a list. I suggested keeping your list to between 5 and 25 items long. The only restriction is no adult content.
All right, lets get to it!
I had to really think about what to list. So many possibilities! In the end I decided to return to some of my earliest writings and share names of characters and places that, until right now, have never been seen by anyone except myself.
These characters and places have been hidden in the dark drawers of my file cabinet and/or between the covers of my three-ring binder for more years than I care to recall. They are from a time when I really liked to make up words and thought myself a fantasy writer.
Though their stories will never be completed, they still live inside my head. It's time to acknowledge them for what they are, the corner stone of my writing, the first baby steps taken by this wandering mind. I was so into it I drew maps, scenes, and sketched characters.
Now, without further ado, allow me to introduce you to:
|Orland and Alanda meeting|
