Under the weather…

Whelp, sadly, I couldn’t keep the flu bug at bay. No post today, but I did manage to find this adorable dragon by Vincent Ballard. See more of his work at the link.

Writing about Finding Dragons…

So tonight’s blog post was supposed to be about something from my actual book, rather than just me talking about how I’m either writing or not, and how it’s going. However, as I composed that post, it just got more in-depth and more detailed, and I realized I didn’t want to rush it; I want…
