I wrote/finished a new chapter of Suffer the Peacemaker! HAH! TRIUMPH!

There are now eleven. This may not seem like much but I've had the damndest time doing anything more productive than encyclopedic worldbuiling on this book for the past, oh, I don't know, THREE YEARS OR SOMETHING.


I think it may help that I found a new writing-song for Meadhon. (It was awfully helpful for Riverwend, it seems to help with this, too.) The downside is, of course, that my writing style has changed enough since the last time I worked on it that I'm going to have to go back and re-write the first ten chapters, but WHATEVER.

Um. Anyway. Momentum! Yes!


We are the children of the lighted age
made tall and strong
by the speed of our beliefs
and the fleeting joy of self-made faiths
We have become accustomed
to living in a crowded sky
unbounded by the remonstrations
of our elders
and heeding only the pleading
of those who will follow us
We are made bold by standing
in a high hall where voices rule
where the boldest may be loved
for being bold
and the wisest may be given
the mantle of creation
And we live in hope that one day
the scepter of the world
will be passed to us
by default
even as we hope
they will never understand us
and leave us
