Hey hey,

Figured an update was due. I haven't been very active. There aren't too many poems floating through my mind lately, I really miss writing poetry. But I guess I only write poems when I'm really feeling, and usually when I'm in a darker mood. So that's a positive.

I had been working on my Egyptian novel, and my editor was really supportive, but I felt the manuscript was too messy. I felt overwhelmed whenever I opened it to "smooth" out the bumps. So I took a step back and...

fell into another project! This one about an English duchess who lived in a very fascinating time. I started it one day when I felt like writing, and words just tumbled on top of each other until I wrote about a quarter of the novel in the space of a week. I stopped, not wanting to rush it like I did the previous novel, to educate myself more on the time period and figure out a real structure.

In real-world news, I took Jukai this year with the Treeleaf Sangha. I am working on transcribing some of my teacher's teachings, so still word work. Also adopted a wild mustang, he's been the most amazing sort of therapy. He will be a therapeutic riding horse, but I intended that for other people. I am surprised what he's done for me!

Don't know if anyone reads this anymore :)

Loved "Stable Morning!" Great that you employ shorter lines - wish I could do so effectively.

I have a short poem contest up and running. Might be of interest? [link]
