James Firelocke James Firelocke's blog:
I have a new theory about what's happening in the US today. So far I've assumed, like many others, that we are sliding into tyranny. But maybe it's just the opposite. Our leaders are basically aware that they are losing the ability to govern the country. They are losing control. The US is hideous... Read more of this blog post »

Caroline O. Berg Caroline O. Berg's blog:
The White Wolf is an interesting fairy tale that merges quite a few other tales. The tale starts much like Beauty and the Beast, only the father is a king, not a merchant, and when visiting a nearby city he goes to various merchants to buy gifts for his daughters to bring back. An expensive neckl... Read more of this blog post »

What is my solution to writer’s block?

I think every author has a different approach to handling writer’s block.  Some of the things I’ve heard have varied from ludicrous to simply impractical.  “Write drunk, edit sober” may have been Ernest Hemingway’s solution, but I find it particularly in...

Leliana, Cole, and Athena walked out of the dungeon hours later. Leliana asked, “What are you thinking, Athena?”
