birchthorn on my mind

Spent two hours on the phone last night talking with my friend Raven about Birchthorn, telling her the story, asking if she wanted to be in it. We ended up weaving a new character, angle, and complicated back story I would have never thought of! I spent the whole time on the phone with her listening to her character's world (which she crafted up) as Roslyn Bishop, apothecary and her husband Robert Bishop, traveling spiritualist. We sat in our living rooms, states apart with a bottle of wine at each home, laughing and talking about an imaginary world. Both of us chucked our televisions recently. Having a living story and personal character to conjure was more fun than anything on cable.

Anyway, you'll get to meet her, her greenhouse, and tamed squirrel Shadowtail in the next chapter when the story pot is full again. Right now it needs about $260 to rustle up another chapter, and as I expected, it will take a while to get their! But I thank all of you pitching in a dollar or two and cheering the fiction on.

Raven and I talked a lot about the monster, and what it is or should be. I told her I had a gut feeling about this beast and she had her own guesses about what Birchthorn is. You'll all find out more as the story moves forward, and so will I.

It's just the donate button on the blog. People are dropping in different amounts, usually around a few dollars. It is under the image of the heart on the right hand side

If you are following this blog, you have to exit Blogger's dashboard and go directly to the blog to see the donate button. Just click on the blog heading and you'll be there. It doesn't show up from the Blogger dashboard. I just found it.
