lilac moonlight …

17 November, 2016

I enjoyed reading the third episode of The Oil of Sage. And I also loved Shadorma 6, it really appealed to me… E Stoker
Elfje 12 is so creative! I like how you compared the colors of autumn to that of rust which made it visually rich. Oil of Sage continues to excite me and it made me wonder if the crystal ball is the key to overcoming Nimue…can’t wait for the next episode! E Choi
Your pyramid poem was spot on. I have often thought of myself as a writer without words just lately. But sometimes there really are no words to describe the things that happen around us and to us. I do like the theme you have going in the small poems included in the zine. The theme of the planets is very atmospheric. I think number 6 is my favourite; Lilac moonlight that pierces the soul is a wonderful poetic suggestion. And thank you again for Dracomagan. Lovely writing and humour. And the analogy of “…pink as a summer rose…” to describe blushing is just gorgeous. Linda Turner

Wednesday Words – final episode of The Essence of Thyme

2 December, 2015
After 2 years we finally reach the final episode of short story The Essence of Thyme. The delay was due to being diagnosed with bowel cancer, having open surgery as well as six months chemotherapy which put the newsletter out of action for just over a year. Thank you for staying with me and being so supportive during what has been a very exhausting and traumatic time.
In this month’s issue you will be able to read episode 5 of my short story, “The Essence of Thyme”. So far, Dracomagan and her friend Parsley have managed to enter an enchanted forest, discovered a castle full of people frozen like statues, experienced a strange green mist that makes Parsley think of dreamy summertimes and discovered an enchanted prince without many clothes on… How will it all end?
To you give a taster if you haven’t read the previous episodes, of “The Essence of Thyme”, here is the link to the first episode that was published in December 2013. The Essence of Thyme #1

Wednesday Words – Newsletter

19 August, 2015
It’s been too long, I know. But since June 2014 I’ve not really had time to even think about my quarterly newsletter, let alone work on it. For those of you who are new to this blog, the reason for the non-appearance of my newsletter since last year is due to me being diagnosed with bowel cancer and having two lots of surgery in 2014, followed by 6 months of chemotherapy. There’s been a lot of recovering and rediscovering to do, but, at long last, I am pleased to announce that issue 14 of Dragonscale Clippings (the name of my newsletter) will be available to subscribers in September.
In September’s issue you will be able to read episode 4 of my short story, “The Essence of Thyme”. So far, Dracomagan and her friend Parsley have managed to enter an enchanted forest, discovered a castle full of people frozen like statues and experienced a strange green mist that makes Parsley think of dreamy summertimes… What will happen next? If you already subscribe to the newsletter you will receive links to all 3 previous episodes as well as the link to episode 4 when I email you next month.
To you give a taster if you haven’t read the previous episodes, and to remind those of my readers who started their journey with me in “The Essence of Thyme”, here is the link to the first episode that was published in December 2013. The Essence of Thyme #1
My Newsletter will also contain artwork, some previously unpublished haiku about my character, Dracomagan, as well as a look back at my colostomy, surgery and chemotherapy clippings. I’ll also be talking about real life again in my editorial, and how I’ve really had to live by my words and conclusions that I reached in June 2014. If you already subscribe, I look forward to your feedback. If you’ve not yet joined me, why not email me now? Subscription is free, all you have to do is email me at dragonscaleclippings (at) gmail (dot) com with “Clippings Request” in the subject line.
More information about the Newsletter can be found at Newsletter. There you can read comments from my readers on previous episodes and issues. Next Wednesday, I will be writing more about Dracomagan and her conception…
