September Update

ORA Con is on September 19th here in Springfield, MO. It is a writing conference that Ozark's Romance Authors puts on every year. You don't have to write Romance to attend as ORA is full of authors who write all genre. Many of our authors will be at the conference with a table or at the signing at the Library Center on Friday afternoon.

I plan to be at the conference on Saturday with a table since I work Friday afternoon during that signing.  I only have a few books, but if you have one of my books already and come...I'll gladly sign.   :)

You can find more info about it on ORA's web site.

Well, I had two days off from work last week which meant I had three days in a row. The one day I went with my Aunt to visit my parents, one was used to get misc. things done, and the other was for writing.

Fire, the Florida story, and the short stories weren't touched, but I did rewrite the new story. I decided to call it Messenger for right now.

I hadn't liked the way it had been going which is one of the reasons I stopped writing on it. It had about seven chapters before the rewrite and now I'm on number nine.  It still has that middle ages society structure but it does also have psychic powers so it's a bit different. There is only one dragon left and dragons had moved to that stage to where people knew they existed but most of what they know about dragons are considered myths.

There are also reptilian creatures besides the dragon...

Daggits were, according to her father, an unholy mix between a horse and a large dragon. Their basic body structure was like that of a horse, but it was a reptile, not a mammal, and some were even winged. The one they rode however was not, nor was it the normal grey-green, but a brown-green. Her mistress said it was called Warchild, and had been trained as a warsteed; but why would a Messenger need a fighting steed?
Is Daggits too much of a BSG reference? One of the ORA members said that's what she thought of the second she saw the name, though it's obviously not a dog.  What else would I call them--Dragits? :)
Oops...How do you change back to normal settings? Well I guess I'm not going to do this in the middle of the next post. :)
