Goals for this week:

I had all these plans to work on TC, then someone shared a link about the greek muses, and now I may make some changes. The article mentioned the original muses, three not nine: Melete (meditation), Mneme (memory), and Aoede (song). The Trinity Coven is currently influenced by the Triple Goddess, and each witch has their own elemental magic. Now I’m debating if I want to use the three muses instead. It would pull away from the oft used elemental magic (which EotF has with its fey). I’m only five chapters in, and not much of it would have to be rewritten. The change would come in my plotting. I could see the ending going a completely different direction. I don’t know if it’s better, just different. I could save the muse idea for a separate book, or I could combine it with Trinity Coven. Decisions, decisions.


On an awesomeness note, my poem has been accepted for Moon Drenched Fables! It will be in their September issue. I’ll announce when it’s up.


  1. Congrats on being accepted for MDF =)
