The Weaving of a Fictional Year


My fictional world of 2009 has included...

Alien Suitcases, Zombie Mermaids and Large Eyeballs
Strange Shop Keepers, Submarines and Parasols
Icarus, Clowns and Potion Factories
Snow White, Several Dwarves and Bird Lungs
The Moon, a Bearded Lady and Impossible Trees
Jigsaws, Crooked Captains and Death
Knitting Needles, Amnesia and Choirs
Butterflies, Sound Stealing Plants, and Zeppelins
Paper Dragons, Submarines and Flowers
Scenic Paths, Air Pirates, and Myths
Jigsaws, Balloons and Painted Moons

Okay, this is where the blog post should have ended, but we interrupt this post with some most fabulous news... My story Pretty Little Ghouls has been accepted for the next issue of Shock Totem. Woot!
