Pondering the passage of time

Halfway through the year and six months since my last post. I am, it would seem, very bad about about self promotion.

It's just that I've been busy writing. Okay, and studying Agile project management. 

Well on my way to writing the next book. A collection of short stories set in the same setting as "Blood Maiden"

To fill some space, here's some 30 days of (non consecutive - no really) writing.

4. Tell us about one of your first stories/characters!
I wrote a Barsoom story for a third grade class project. I remember as I stood in front of the class to read it that I decided that it wasn't really interesting enough. 

So, I adlibbed the rest of the story.

5. By age, who is your youngest character? Oldest? How about “youngest” and “oldest” in terms of when you created them?

If by character that shows up in a story, the youngest would be Hope, who in "Gordian" is three months old. If by youngest main character, excellent question. I don't tend to write children main characters. 

Oldest, ah, one of my oldest stories. I'd call it a Mary Sue of a story (given her awful angst, but she's thousands of years old. I parodied her a later story. Let's just say she was my drop in any era character.
