merry merry christmas

Hullo Writers!
I hope y'all have all had a wonderful Christmas. I did.
     For one, I always used our family desktop to post from, or my mom's computer.
     But today, I am posting from my very own computer.
     I got a bunch of Whovian things, so I am one happy camper. (I'm actually wearing my Bowties Are Cool socks.) My sister gave me a Hunger Games leather bracelet with 'May the Odds be Ever in Your Favor' on it. Completely me. I'm very happy to have gotten the stuntbook I've been nagging everyone to get me....LOL!

      And now I just got the Hunger Games trilogy on my laptop for freee. (I own the last two already but I didn't have the first one. STEAL!!)

      Anywho, Hannah, I saw that you've been putting up the Christmas short stories on your blog! Very excited to go read that. [ check it out here ]
     I'm supposed to be editing my Five Glass Slippers story, but Christmas at our house is a very busy time of year. Very. I get to read a few other submissions that fellow writers are sending me; they're reminding me that I need to finish. They're so good, y'all!
      This is also a post to say hello I'm alive and I won't be posting for a while. I'm probably going to start posting again once the New Year's are over. Until then!

Savo'lass a lalaith!

In a land of myth and a time of magic...

the destiny of a great kingdom rests on the shoulders
of a young boy.
His name,



I have been absent for while. Yes, I was going to give excuses. But really, it's just one. 


Last month, I came to the family room and saw my sister was watching something.
"What're you watching?" I ask.
"Merlin," she says.
I freaked out. I had seen the cover on Netflix before, several times and I could tell it was something I would love. But I never had tried it out. 
"Do you like it?"
"I'm only on the second episode, but it's great so far," she says. "You can watch it."

And so I did. 


And that is the reason I have not been posting. I've started taking my time with it, because I realized that yes, it has an end. Endings are never happy. The show ended last year, ending with 5 seasons. I'm in the fifth season now, and I'm starting to slow down LOTS. I really don't want it to end. 

I had a thought. "Oh. Look. I'm not busy...watching Merlin...I can post now."
Just to tell you that I'm still alive.

The main character, Merlin, is acted by Colin Morgan. The first time I saw Colin, it was in one of my favorite episodes of Doctor Who.

His name was Jethro in this episode called 'Midnight'. He was favorite one in this episode, actually, because he actually did something besides talk and ask the Doctor questions. He noticed things. 
I noticed that he was the same face on the cover of Merlin. 
Now after watching Merlin (and of course behind-the-scenes!) Colin Morgan has officially made it to my top favorite celebrity list.

No, none is writer-related. But I'm alive and posting! 

Also, if you're interested in this sometimes-overdone, hilarious, magical series, here's a trailer.

I'll be back!
