103,000 words = 215 letter-sized pages. Seems like it should add up to more, doesn’t it?
It’s been a while since I did a Random Rejection, so this week I thought I would reach into my giant file folder of writing correspondence and pull something out of it. But instead of either a rejection or an acceptance letter, I drew this instead:
The votes are in (although about half the time this month I forgot to include the poll in the weekly post) and the winner by a landslide for the next Scene of the Month is perennial favorite Dragon Stones! Will The Wolf ever come out on top again? Who knows? But the moral is, werewolves shouldn’t mess with dragons, on account of dragons breathe fire. At least my dragons do.
The votes are in and the readers’ choice for this week’s scene of the month is Dragon Stones. Randomly flipping through the book, I stopped here, towards the end, where the dragon has finally cut loose on her enemies. Burn, baby, burn!
The votes have been counted (or more accurately, the percentages have been looked at) and for the first time since I started the Scene-Of-The-Month, we have a tie! Dragon Stones and The Wolf each received 49% of the votes. Now we could have a runoff election, but what fun would that be? Instead, here is one scene from each.

The results of voting are in and once again Dragon Stones is the readers’ choice for a scene of the month! Taking the book off the shelf and flipping to a random page got me this scene, which is quite near the beginning and, once again, involves some misfortune befalling poor Adaran. There really is a dragon in this book, honest — in fact, in this scene, Adaran and his companions have just returned from a raid on her lair. I just haven’t pulled any scenes yet in which the dragon actually appears. But if Dragon Stones keeps winning the polls, I’m sure she will turn up here eventually.
