’Traitor’s Curse” is a well written and refreshing read, full of :
and dangerous spars against evil schemes.
The adventures both disrupt and intensify a developing romance centred in the Southern United States, following the War of independence against Britain.
The supernatural interventions mixed with foreshadowing are well done and believable in the story, whether or not we question the ghostly possibilities & curses … and they keep the reader turning the pages. The rapidly developing love story carries with it some inner turmoil in matters of belief and trust, but the gripping external conflicts are laced with danger and evil intent. The story draws the readers into the midst of the fray. And keeps them there.
I readily recommend this novel, “Traitor’s Curse” to anyone who wants to settle into a captivating read created by Beth Trissel, as she weaves her knowledge of the South, herbs and history into this enjoyable love story.

At 4:15 PM today I decided to do the NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) in which the target word count is 50,000 by the end of November. No bright ideas came to mind … blank slate there today. Sigh. So I did no planning, and will write freestyle anything that comes to mind., trusting the creative center of my thinking process. I titled the manuscript “Harvesting the Soul.” I’ll pluck out memories and work with them, musing along the way, what they might signify. Something likely only interesting to me.
The advantage to this process shows a writer what they can accomplish if they will “just write” and not edit, to get the first draft of their story done. I very much need a refresher course on that process!
This challenge attracts thousands of writers world wide.

What I accomplished today had no relationship to my “do list” … and everything to do with my failed internet connection. Called support, reset the modem, worked fine on my PC, iPad, etc. but Mr. i-Mac crossed his arms and said “NO WAY.” (Yes I’ve decided my Mac is a man … good company most of the time, but can try my patience, smile) Modem guy didn’t know Macs so I fiddled around and fixed the WiFi signal. How great is that?
But I wouldn’t remember how to do it again. Sigh.
Expecting fabulous friends from Tennessee to arrive momentarily after their long long flight. Excited beyond words. Bye for now.

I’ve been in a pensive non-productive mode for a while, but music has always been a powerful
emotional trigger in my life. This one is a favorite. The words can be transposed to many of the emotional events in our lives, in our writing, and in the ways of life in this world. Enjoy if you have the time.

In Hootsuite to streamline social media. Like hanging on to a huge octopus, wrapped in a strangle hold, going down, shouting “I’ve got it!”
