Oh, I want to talk about this chapter, but I don’t want to spoil it. This is me anxiously clapping my hands together. Ignore the woman behind the curtain.
I was glad to see that I still was a few chapters ahead, so there’s a bit more to go. I’ve been so busy working on Cirvel’s story (and yes, I really think I needed to be writing it before I really got back to Sacred Knight #5) that I haven’t been working on Dragons of Wellsdeep as much lately. There are just so many stories I want to be writing and I’m so far behind with my reviews of what I’ve written that I feel like I’ll never catch up. Even my new processes I’ve been writing about earlier in the year don’t seem to be giving me an advantage. Okay, so maybe follow-thru on some of these has something to do with it, but when you realize that you have to go back and rewrite a section of story, which also means updating the outline, it has just knocked the wind right out of my sails. It’s easier to just keep writing forward. Then I feel bad because I know I need to go back. Time is so limited and the words must be done. Rearranging words doesn’t get new words written. Yeah, I’m going to have to find balance somewhere.
While I’m figuring it out, why don’t you get to the story?

Dragons of Wellsdeep
by Dawn Blair
Chapter 18 was available for one week and has now turned back into a pumpkin. If you missed it, click on the links below to find it or another great story to read. There’s also another free story or story excerpt somewhere around my blog – I try to post something new every Wednesday. Hunt the story down, read, and enjoy!
That is my wish for the world this holiday season: may everyone learn to have patience. With themselves and with others. If we all would slow down just a bit instead of desiring everything now (to be home now, to be at work now, to be at the store now, to eat now, to have *whatever* now, to have success now, instant weight-loss, instant healing, etc., etc., etc.), the world would be a much better place. Quit being in a rush.
There is no need to rush.
(And if you are, how was that your own fault – take 100% responsibility for it.)
Life responds better when you are calm.

I must write quickly. I’m about to head out on another adventure. I have to go check up on Moonhunter. Last I knew, it wasn’t looking good for him. But, I won’t give you spoilers here. You’ll just have to catch up.
With that, I’ll let you get to this week’s chapter. Enjoy!

Magic is real. It’s not quite like you imagine it to be and certainly not like the tricks of stage magicians. But what exactly is it, can it be measured, and can it be scientifically proven.
This is the premise of Dean Radin’s Real Magic. Radin holds a PhD and has done many experiments for psi research.
I listened to this in-between finishing A Flaw in All Magic and Solve for Happy. I could only take so much of this book at a time. And just as the process would have it, some of the sections I listened to in conjunction with Solve for Happy were entertaining. Sometimes it felt as if the two were at extreme odds with either other and I got to see two sides of how scientific minds explore similar topics. At other times, they were in agreement, but saying it in two ways based on their own life experiences.
For the last couple of weeks, I’ve had to take the highway 93 into work. Going to work and coming home has made me a neurotic mess every day. I HATE that route. Happily, the road construction is done and I can go back to my normal route.
I really like my back country road where I can kick back and relax. There’s only one spot on the road at the overpass where it joins the interstate that I have dubbed, “The Gauntlet.” People are always trying to race through The Gauntlet, while there’s traffic coming off the highway, people getting onto the highway, people turning on and off another country road (and there’s not much distance between here and the highway off ramp), or people going to a coffee shop or Subway. You literally have to watch five directions at once while keeping one eyes behind you and the other beside you. Even yesterday morning as I was heading into work, someone pulled out from the country road with a trailer. I’m certain that they couldn’t see me behind the traffic coming off the highway. Fortunately, I was using my omnivision and saw him. I was breaking before I even saw his face in front of me. Surprise! My car, love her dearly, can stop on a dime and she did so.
Once you’re through The Gauntlet, you can kick back and relax. Then it’s just a matter of watching to make sure people are really going to stop at the stop signs at the intersections every mile or so. It’s a much more relaxed drive.
So what does all this have to do with the quote at the top?
Well, Moonhunter is about to take a little trip. Next week we’ll get into it more and for him it’ll then be more like running through The Gauntlet. But you’ve got to start somewhere. He certainly didn’t have to do anything similar to driving down highway 93. Beyond that, you will have to get through the chapter to find out.
Let’s begin, shall we?

I am well underway for working on this story again. I’m glad that I listened to the lessons I forcefully learned during my recent issues with Tangled Magic and Walk the Path and am now applying them to Dragons of Wellsdeep. Next is Stonecharmer and its sequel, Stonebreaker. I really do hope that after this is all said and done, I become a much more capable writer.
Onto the story.

just yesterday I was writing about Steigan and a conversation he was having with Arlyn. It’s a very wise conversation. It really got me to thinking that Prince of the Ruined Land is about Steigan feeling all the confusion about all that has happened in the first three books.
Yes, he learns lots of things and part of the story knits together, but he’s still conflicted. Book 5, The Missing Thread, will be about him coming to terms with it. Maybe I needed to get to where I’m at in order to get Steigan through this.
