Sunrise Along Shore

Sunrise Along Shore

Athwart the harbor lingers yet
The ashen gleam of breaking day,
And where the guardian cliffs are set
The noiseless shadows steal away;
But all the winnowed eastern sky
Is flushed with many a tender hue,
And spears of light are smiting through
The ranks where huddled sea-mists fly.

— L.M. Montgomery, author of Anne of Green Gables

Delphiniums in a Window Box

Delphiniums in a Window box

Every sunrise, sometimes strangers’ eyes.
Not necessarily swans, even crows,
even the evening fusillade of bats.
That place where the creek goes underground,
how many weeks before I see you again?
Stacks of books, every page, character’s
rage and poet’s strange contraption
of syntax and song, every song
even when there isn’t one.
Every thistle, splinter, butterfly
over the drainage ditches. Every stray.
Did you see the meteor shower?
Every question, conversation
even with almost nothing, cricket, cloud,
because of you I’m talking to crickets, clouds,
confiding in a cat. Everyone says
Come to your senses, and I do, of you.
Every touch electric, every taste you,
every smell, even burning sugar, every
cry and laugh. Toothpicked samples
at the farmer’s market, every melon,
plum, I come undone, undone.

— Dean Young, author of Fall Higher

Share Your World – 2015 Week #26


Share Your World – 2015 Week #26


In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?

I don’t like either one, but I would prefer to be a passenger. I haven’t driven for over 5 years.

If you were handed free opera tickets, would you go or sell them? Why?

I would go because I’ve never been to an opera.

Describe your own outlook on life in seven words or less. (NOTE:  does not necessarily have to be a sentence.)

Life is unfolding as it should.

Which would you prefer:  a wild, turbulent life filled with joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure–intoxicating successes and stunning setbacks; or a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family without such wide swings of fortune and mood?

I’ve lived the wild, turbulent life and, even though I have never experienced intoxicating successes, I have experienced stunning setbacks. I think, for once, I would like to live a happy, secure life surrounded by friends and family.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am grateful that we received some lower humidity’s and temperatures last week. I’m looking forward to having my family gathering at my home for the 4th of July Holidays.

Solstice TourEnjoy this month-long tour featuring authors of all fantasy genres.  Maybe among them you will find a new favorite! (Note that I have not read all of these works, and their appearance here is not necessarily a personal endorsement.)

Renee Scattergood is today’s featured author from the Magic of Solstice Fantasy Writers’ Tour.  She has been on my blog before (welcome back!) and I’ve started reading her Shadow Stalker series, which is exciting and full of suspense right from the beginning.  Renee is very active in the Indie Author community, always willing to help others and share her expertise.  I’m very happy to host for her on this last day of the tour, and am looking forward to joining her cabin for Camp NaNoWriMo in July.

Help us get to know you better!  What do you write, and how do you describe yourself as an author?

I write fantasy, mainly dark fantasy…

The Multi-Layered Antagonist

When sitting down to design your characters it’s easy to get wrapped up in your protagonist(s). They’re the good guys, the heroes of your story, and it’s fun to beat them up, and then watch them rise above to overcome the bad guy. What folks forget, though is that your hero is only as good as the adversary he goes up against. Don’t neglect your antagonist.

When I say don’t neglect the antagonist, I don’t mean to simply make them vile and powerful. It’s all too easy to have Reginald the Rapacious wipe out a village or two as a means of establishing his villainy, and leave it at that. Yuck.

A complex, multi-layered antagonist is much more interesting, and will serve to bring the overall quality of your story up. Heck, your antagonist might not even be a bad person. She might be fully convinced that…
