Lady Ellhorn is my muse.She is the "figment of my imagination" that I turn to when I am stuck with my stories.
She has never failed me.

But all magic comes with a price.
It may be a compulsion to write or create that distracts from other things in your day, that makes you feel incomplete until you attend to the muse. Or it could be days of writer's block before the onrush of inspiration. Or perha... Read more of this blog post »

“...The man who stood before her was taller and stranger than anyone she had ever encountered. His unkempt hair was a long dark brown, partially braided and twisted around twigs, the tips of his pointed ears poking between strands. His bare chest made her flush, but it was completely covered in green inked tattoos. Leather breeches creaked when he shifted. He held his hand out to her, uncurling fingers with long nails. "Aislin," he repeated, his voice gruff and purring, "do not be frightened. I have been waiting so long for you.”
Lori J. Fitzgerald, Love Lies Bleeding

“It's a pook, a messenger...spy is more like it," Kern explained sourly. "This one will tattle, and I'll never hear the end of it when I go back." An eyebrow lifted. "Consorting with a human.”
Lori J. Fitzgerald, Love Lies Bleeding

“She knew him as much as the knowing of her own heart’s secret: she was destined for the forest.”
Lori J. Fitzgerald, Love Lies Bleeding

“For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning."

(Little Gidding)”
T.S. Eliot

“One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful.”
Sigmund Freud

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
Neil Gaiman, Coraline

“People who deny the existence of dragons are often eaten by dragons. From within.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Wave in the Mind: Talks & Essays on the Writer, the Reader & the Imagination

“Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It's a way of understanding it.”
Lloyd Alexander
