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.

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 »
