Guess what I did today? I went to a castle! A real (sort of) castle! Such excitement. Much road trip. Which is why I’m posting a tad late today and why this post may be incoherent.
Over the past week or so since ROW80 ended, I’ve actually been able to get a lot done. By the end of tonight, I will have finished editing the first seven chapters of Queen of Hearts that I got back from my betas in June/July. Then its on to the rest of it. I’ve also started learning Swedish online.
Other things I did this week:
Created a tumblr to document my conlangs (and I’m looking for blogs to follow as well!)
Now, once you’ve had a chance to look at these links, I’ll move onto today’s WIPpet. The following is from the motivational speech the Master at Arms gives Kara and her companions on their first day of training. (From chapter 10, for the month.) As always, thanks to K. L .Schwengel for hosting, you can find us here.
You think you know how to fight? Fine. I’ll let you continue your delusions for a while longer but you’re here to learn how to be warriors. By the time I’m finished with you, your bruises will have bruises and you’ll be begging me to face a highly disciplined Haelean army wearing only the armour which the gods, in their mercy, chose to give you at birth.
