I helped start a writers’ group awhile back, and one of the prompts we had involved writing transportation. Since I’d also been reading The Goldfinch and been inspired with the characters, I decided to use this prompt to develop one of the characters in my book, Reincarnating Pandora.
Loki despised air travel in the same way a boxer loathes a right hook to the jaw. It hurt, but it was part of the job. Being Lord over the realm of chaos meant airline passengers, flight delays and luggage loss fell strictly under his domain.
Many people thought it fell to Hermes or Meili, but anyone who’s taken a cross-continental airplane flight during December can attest to the madness that comes over the masses as they’re wanded through security and enter the gates of entropy. [click to continue…]
I realized recently that I have a load of new posts out on other sites, if you’re looking for more of my writing. I figured I better hook you up with this list on the weekend, so you can sit down with a nice cup of coffee, relax and take your time with it.
- 3 Tips for Building Wealth — Understanding your money and how it works can greatly change how you relate to it. Think of it like you would a good friend or a partner. Things aren’t going to go well in your relationship if you don’t learn about each other.

If you like any of these, please share them with your friends. I am always looking for new readers. If you have any ideas for articles or would like to trade blog posts (yay for guest blogging!) email me.

Except in addition to looking over the year and saying what you’re thankful for, you also consider what sacrifices you want to make to honor the Universe (or whomever you think helped you out).
There’s also a LOT less baking, since it’s celebrated in the heat of summer.
A lot of people aren’t really keen on the whole idea of sacrifice and witchcraft.
