Favorite Excerpt:  “None of it compared to their wings.

Wraith sprites sported quillwings on their backs. Bunches of long, sharp spines that more often than not matched the color of their hair sprouted between their shoulder blades. Relaxed, they rested smoothly against the wraiths’ backs. One or two of them had their quills raised slightly, spreading out the splashes of color like tufts of sturdy, off-colored grass.”

Today was a good day for productivity. I got this all done in better time than I thought. I was really excited to get to the wraiths, and now that I’m there I think it’ll come a lot faster than it’s already been. >w< It’s very exciting to write about a new species of sprite, after spending so much time with the wood sprites.

Today was really close. I got so distracted and literally made that word count like fifteen minutes ago. I dunno why I let myself get so distracted by stuff. XD However, I’ve gotten to chapter 5 and I will finally be able to introduce the titular character in this story. He’s been waiting.

Favorite Excerpt:  “Why is everything so … square?! Humans are obsessed with right angles!”

I got to kind of a late start today what with errands and generally feeling the lazy Saturday vibe. However, I still found time to get a lot done and I’m pretty happy with what I did. A little more culture shock, and I’ll get to some more tomorrow too. And then, in all likelihood, I’ll get to introduce Teven finally and get some real intrigue going. This sequel is gonna be really different from Bowman of Wellwood.

Favorite Excerpt:  “’What are you?’ the human asked. Predictable. Obvious. The question any sprite could be ready to hear when confronting the damn wingless giants. Teven frowned, but didn’t make a move to answer.”

Today didn’t come as easily as the previous days, mainly due to distractions and generally being kinda frazzled by various things today. However, I did surpass my goal by a little bit, so I can’t complain. I helped by skipping ahead to a chapter about a new character that I haven’t gotten to write much before.
