1. The walls of the canyon are steep, but rough and he has no problems finding handholds as he works his way to the top. They may have barred him from the path itself, but it can’t keep him from following alongside.

2. Generations of dragons have worn deep clawmarks into the mountainside as they catch the cliffs on landing, so it’s easy to see from the hillside where the hatching caves lie.

3. “If I had meant you to learn it, I would have taught it to you.” His aunt snapped the book closed sharply and the spine huffed dust. “I told your mother I don’t care for curious minds, now I’m telling you.”

4. Magic is a lot like computer programming, it doesn’t care what you meant to do it only cares what you’ve actually said.

5. The lantern’s light is thin and more green than white, but it’s enough to read the console.

Once Again, Camp Approacheth!

By | March 13, 2017

It’s that time of the year again, when plot bunnies start popping out of the woodwork and the siren lure of a Camp NaNoWriMo can be heard!

(We’ll ignore the fact that my track record for wins with Camp NaNo’s is currently abysmal.)

So what’s on the docket for April’s Camp? Why my attempt at a play on the Beauty and the Beast story, Into Darkness. Which currently exists primarily in my head and a few very badly written scenes from twenty years ago, give or take.

Which makes a perfect start for a planster (half planner/half panster) NaNo! 😉

So let’s do some planning! 😀

Hundreds of prompts, Half-dozens of eBooks!

1. The flowers actively seek the sun, twisting on rubbery stalks to mark out its passage across the sky.

2. “You use magic for completely ridiculous things!” He waved his arms. “You use it to wash pots and make pens that never run out of ink– Where’s the real magic? You can defy the laws of physics and all you can think of to do is change the color of the cat’s fur!?”

3. As the atmosphere thickens she slowly transforms, curling the last vestiges of solar sails into wings meant to cup air and not sunlight.

4. When they finally run out of bullets their guns find other jobs as makeshift hammers and pry bars.

5. A faint wind begins to creep along the floorboards as the ship floats forward on the curtain of air.
