WIND IN THE TREES : A progress report.


Wind in the trees: My perfect writing weather.....

I am close to sending my agent the first 80 or so pages of The Maker's Cage. I think it is one of the best things I have ever written. It's one of the oddest....

Then I will be back in Limori almost full-time.  And by "almost" I mean I will continue what I am doing now. ..I will only be leaving Limori  when I can't see or hear any of the Limori characters that day..... 



Wind in the trees ::  I can always see their faces.

...but when those days come...
Russett will be the new secondary project.
(I said that very quietly. I don't want to scare him away...

...I would hate to have him think I might betray him. I won't. I have seen the places  he escaped and the scars on his hands.

Everytime I see a tree,especially in full bloom it reminds me of childhood where I wished I could float and sleep in their leaves...love trees no matter the season!

Oh thank goodness!!
I finished listening to book 2 and have started book 1 again and I keep creating anxiety for myself trying to see if I can hear anything I missed the first few times. I need to know, need to know, need to know!!!!!!

Such lovely pictures, Kathleen! I love pictures of silhouettes (which is a word I never know how to spell, but I digress). It's wonderful how they form just before sunset, when the sky's all funny colored and the tree branches look like cracks in the sky... it's almost alien.

Oh, and a random question: how many pages at most did The Big Book have? I'm absurdly obsessed over book sizes. I always look at how many pages a book has before I read it and also stop reading to admire funny book page numbers such as 222 or 543 or 314 (like 3.14 in pi!) Sorry, I'm just very weird...

Thanks, an a good day to you. :)

I am also curious as to the original length of book three. I have been waiting ever so patiently for it and am very excited to hold it in my hands! I think a lot about how the entire town shaved their heads to support Sadima. It touches my heart.....
