Sadder but Wiser

I appear before you fresh from having searched the word “fantasy” in a blog-search program. And I have learned two things, one general and one specific.

A.) (general) Never do this.

B.) (specific) Do not write about BDSM unless you can spell “dungeon.” Misspelling this tricky but useful word may undermine your authority.

Now I’m going to try and apply these lessons in my daily life.

    Alternate Heading: “Warning: Sudden Exposure To How Other People Live May Be Hazardous To Your Sanity”

    I mean really. Misspell dungeon?

      There was an extra “d” in there somewhere. I think they might have been confusing it with “dudgeon”–or else they just had a cold that day.

    You are wicked!

    I mean that most postively!


    Are you home again? Or still in Italy? Have you ever gone to Sicily?

    Love, C.

      I am back in the Great Black Swamp. It’s nice to be home, but I miss living in a big city, and Rome and (some) Romans in particular.

      I keep saying I’m going to make it north to Venice or south to Sicily… but I haven’t yet.

    I meant to say that I enjoyed mucho the latest Morlock offering. I thought you really nailed the POV character.

      Thanks! In my first stab at the story, Thend (her brother) was the narrator. That went nowhere. Then I put Fasra in the driver’s seat and everything worked much better.
