Writing in the Snow with Dragons

My weekend: snow, writing, dragons (of the self-doubt variety.)

Revision is SO scary. It can feel like battling a three-headed dragon. You deal with one problem, you make two more for yourself. Everywhere, there are teeth.  But if you look for it, there is also snow. Miraculous, unpredictable snow.

See those silhouettes underneath the dragon? They're fairytale postcards I bought in Germany.  And the gypsy doll is a marionette I found in Prague one bitterly cold winter day.  (So is the dragon.)

Back to work now.


  1. Cannot believe the weather there. Cannot believe it! That'll weed out all but the hearty Trick-or-Treating.

  2. The first snow of the year always does seem like kind of a miracle. We haven't had ours yet, but it will be soon, I've no doubt.
