A Warm Week- At Last!

Hail, all ye who cometh to my blog! (Sorry, I've been reading books set in medieval times.) Since today is Friday, (hurrah!) I'm blogging about my week! So, here's what's going on:

  • It's WARM!!!!!! Yes! I am, at this very moment, wearing a short-sleeved shirt! I absolutely love warm weather. It's very inspiring, and more than that, warm weather makes one feel . . . more alive. So, because of the lovely weather, I actually just went out and walked around the neighborhood, just to be outside. And to get exercise, of course.
  • I have gotten a fairly good amount of work done on Elden Tales #2. I currently hope that I will finish it next week, and I believe that I may very well do it. After that, and after I finish Antuindia Chronicles #3, I have a whole new book planned! Well, not exactly planned, but I wrote up the main characters, and a "teaser" for it. Teasers are, by the way, very fun to write.
  • Beren, Luthien, and romance in general are much more enjoyable in poetry. This is what I've discovered while reading The Lays of Beleriand by J.R.R. Tolkien. The Lay of Leithien, which is the story of Beren and Luthien in poetry form,  is actually very pleasant. In case anyone was wondering, Beren is a human who falls in love with Luthien, an elf. Unfortunately, Luthien's father isn't very happy about this, and so he tells Beren he has to go on a more-or-less impossible quest if he wants to marry her. I won't say any more, since I don't want to spoil the story for anyone who might want to read it, but if you decide to read it, the poetry form is, in my opinion at least, much more enjoyable.  

Well, that's about it. As always, please comment on my blog, especially my stories! I'd love to hear what you think!
