The Week in Review

Pink iris (Iris Carden Author logo) Caption reads: "The Week in Review."

What I’ve been writing

Drawing of a bridge, with vines over it, over a river. Caption reads: "Part of me lives in worlds that don't exist.

Sunday: Worlds that Don’t Exist

Much of my life is lived in the multiple worlds inside my head.

Drawing of black and white dog, with the caption: "Bond," said the little dog, "Jane's Bond."

Monday: Jane’s Bond

A little dog arrives in Heaven.

Drawing of the night sky with a full moon and an orange-yellow streak across the sky.

Tuesday: The Dogs of War

Aliens have invaded, but not any kind of aliens anyone would ever expect.

Drawing of a rainbow, with the caption: "There's a magical world not far from home."

Wednesday: Rainbows and Unicorns

My poem for the week.

Post has a bonus poem, How the Trees Grow, by a special guest poet.

Thursday: Hailey and the Haunted House

My special guest author has been at work again, and gave me the synopsis for this very scary story.

Friday: Brave Kitty

Princess Cat has faced her fears.

Pencil drawing of a taller boy, a shorter girl and a massive dog walking through a foggy dead forest. Caption reads: They continued their walk toward the centre of the Void.

Saturday A Strange Encounter

In chapter 8 of my work in progress, Wendy has a surprise discovery.

What I’ve enjoyed reading this week

  • I’m still working my way through Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series (not quite half way).
  • I’ve also read The Feathers of Adam by Patricia Krisztina and Mihai Petean. On Twitter, the authors call themselves This Will Hurt Books @_thiswillhurt_ . The book is a complex, and at sometimes frightening, story told from multiple points of view. Several times I found myself saying, “I didn’t expect that.” The book was the first in a series and I confess, I want to know what happens next. I bought it on Kindle, I don’t know where else it’s available.

I have done far less reading than usual this week. Much of my time has been spent with my special guest author/poet.
