I probably should have written this during the morning when I was all pumped up and ecstatic. I’m starting to feel that this is a Sunday routine for me where I start the day all excited and by the time I sit down to write this, I’m depressed as can be. Yes, honest moment there.
And yes, I often have to pick myself back up to write this blog.
There’s a big fly in my office and I wish it would die. I want it to get trapped in a spiderweb and become dinner for another species I don’t particularly like. Yeah, it’s that kind of depression day.
Maybe it’s the episode of Star Trek: TNG that I had on a little while ago. Maybe it’s just a cycle that I go through. Maybe I feel that I’m not as productive on Sundays as I wish I were and I imagine myself being during the rest of the week. Maybe it’s the story I’m writing that now has me emotionally tapped. Maybe I intuitively feel that I’m not doing something right in my life and this is when it tries to surface. Maybe I need more time off to recharge. Maybe I see all that needs to get done that I haven’t gotten to. Maybe I feel like this is a record of what I got done while I let other things in my life go by the wayside knowing I should be tackling these tasks too.
Yeah, this is how I feel on Sunday evenings. Read the rest of this entry »

Are you ready to fall in love with Moonhunter?
I’m just saying — he’s infectious.
Much like with Onesong, you are getting a raw story. It is not yet complete, so I’m certain things will get added or taken out later. Parts may not always make sense. But, we had so much fun when I did this with Onesong that I thought I’d give this one a roll too.
Please like and share the story with all your friends. It’s more fun to read these chapters together. As long as everyone keeps enjoying the story, I’ll do my best to post chapters. (I will trust the process though, just like I did in Onesong.)
UPDATE: This chapter will remain up as a sample chapter for the book. It will not go away.
Let’s get to it, shall we?
Dragons of Wellsdeep
by Dawn Blair
Her time of merely watching drew to a close. Soon, she’d take the child.
The little boy headed to the well. She watched him in the reflection of the water’s surface, a waving mirage with the blue sky behind him. He stomped his feet as he walked, pounding on the earth like a heartbeat. She felt his restrained temper tantrum mixing with her own pulse in a growing, synchronized cacophony with his irritation.

Here it is: the last chapter of Onesong.
Thank you to all of you who have been with me since the beginning. Special thanks to Sally who read the whole thing and gave me feedback along the way. Keep going, girl, the rabbit hole only gets deeper. 🙂
It also was great to see how many people joined us along the way.
Next week, well, I’m not entirely sure what I’m doing yet. I have ideas, but no plan yet. Guess we’ll all be surprised!
I won’t keep you any longer. Let’s finish this!
Onesong is an epic fantasy story filled with action, adventure, and sword and sorcery. Chapter 50 is available for 1 week only! Then it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new chapter will appear! Read the rest of this entry »

In this next section, you’ll see Ellonia talking about things that she has no knowledge about. I know that at some point Rivic and Ellonia need to have an important conversation to set up for this chapter, but I’m not sure where. Yes, it should have happened in the last chapter, but I really liked the idea of leaving it with a closed door love scene. I couldn’t interrupt. Believe me, I tried.
Yeah, the characters were all like, “Let’s not waste any more time,” and I’m all trying to have Rivic interrupt and say, “But in not wasting any more time, I need to have a serious conversation with you about this black dragon living down below Gohaldinest. Yeah, she’s my dragon mother and I need to take you down to see her.” He wouldn’t do it. Dang characters.
No, he’s right. I backed off.
I know that there is another scene coming, one that will give them more time together before this scene. It just hasn’t revealed itself to me. I’m excited to write it though; I have a cloud of what it will be in the back of my mind, so I have a small glimpse of it already.
Let’s get to this week’s chapter.
Onesong is an epic fantasy story filled with action, adventure, and sword and sorcery. Chapter 46 is available for 1 week only! Then it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new chapter will appear! Read the rest of this entry »
