The Plate and the Blade

In honor of nearly finishing the second draft of the second Enorians book, now tentatively titled A Thistle in the Ruins, which includes quotes from enorian myths, I thought I’d share Vivian’s favorite story: “The Plate and the Blade.” Long ago, there were two lovers: Kres, an Enosian War Bringer and Solina, a Lorosian Lightbringer. …

Blogs Are Hard

I don’t know how people manage to write blogs multiple times a week, let alone daily. Clearly I’ve been struggling to do it weekly, considering I’ve just skipped the last two weeks entirely. I don’t know why it’s so much easier for me to write 200,000-word novels than it is to write a short blog …
