Happy Friday, Aledan Merfolk! This has been a long, emotion-filled week, so we’re going to keep this update short and sweet.
I finished reading FANTASY MEDLEY 3, and really enjoyed each of the short stories (the third one was confusing through most of it, but man that ending!). I definitely recommend buying a copy and checking the stories out yourself – you’re bound to like at least one of them. Now I’m reading QUEEN OF THE TEARLING, although I’ve been so tired this week that I haven’t even finished the first chapter. I’ve been going to bed early instead.
The writing was going great until I got to the current scene and stalled. Not because I know what happens, but because I do, and it’s so utterly horrible that I don’t want to write it. But I need to, because if I don’t, I can’t write the scene where the bad guy gets what’s coming to him. And whoaboy does he have it coming, especially after this scene.
On the chicken front: Mononoke has started letting us pet her! In fact, she tried to jump into Hub’s arms the other day when he was petting her. We think she’s close to laying her first egg, because she’s been acting different lately. If you go anywhere near her she hunkers down with her wings out and wants some love. She even let Hops the dog sniff her up the other day before turning around and looking at her like “Hey! Your nose is cold.”
I hope you have a restful weekend, Aledans. I’ll see you Sunday for Custom Pony of the Week, and Tuesday for Science News!
