Whimsy, Going Commando, and Wednesday

DreamsWhat do writers do more than anything else? Yes, we edit and market and socialize on internet medias. Yes, we submit and worry and fret until we get word back. Writers do all of these things. Constantly. But what ONE thing do we do all the time?

We make it up–and we make it up as we go along.

According to the Universe, we have some help.

The lions and tigers and bears of time and space, Silver, are really the angels and fairies and unicorns that followed you here, in disguise, from worlds beyond, agreeing to poke, unnerve, and awaken you should you ever begin to forget that you’re making it all up – your life, that is.

Now that’s love –
The Universe

True, Silver, they also lost the bet that you’d, indeed, “go human, commando” no less…

When this hit my inbox, I got all giggly-giddy. My first thought went to the Penumbra Papers. Once ROGUE MOON is finished, I can jump back into the world of human “commandos”, werewolves, gargoyles, faeries, witches, and other things that go bump in the night. No unicorn yet. But considering I once had an impressive unicorn collection, I may just have to rectify that in a later book.

But back to my point. The one thing that writer’s do–or should be doing–is MAKING IT UP! We dream and spin our dreams into words that tell tales of…everything! Love. Death. Heroes. Villains. Catastrophe and calm waters. Whatever we can dream up in our imagination can be given wings by our words. How freaking awesome is that?

And speaking of awesome…Wild Rose is still celebrating Read an Ebook Week and FAIRY TALES CAN COME TRUE is free today on their SPECIAL SALES PAGE! If you already have a copy, go see what other books are free today!

    I so needed that this morning – thank you for sharing your Universe’s inspiration with us, Silver 🙂

  2. I think my imagination stayed on vacation after I got home. I need to kick its lily-white arse and get it back to work. Cuz, yeah, I’m making all this up – or I should be. Thanks for the kick in the pants this morning, Silver.

      I know, right?!? Thea Harrison went dragon and unicorn in her Elder Races series. I’ve got a “unicorn” in a SciFI/Fantasy novel in my files but she’s more fae than anything. I dare you to come up with a unicorn/werewolf love story, JB!

    What happened to my earlier post?? did it not like the fact that I asked if it was asking if you were going commando for the day???

    • Silver James says:

      I don’t know what happened to it. It’s not in any of the “slush file” folders. Very odd. And FYI? I haven’t gone commando since I got my first royalty check and invested in a month’s worth of underwear for the entire family. 😉

Got something to say?
