I'm Baaa-aaack!

After a season of rest, I'm back to work and writing in virtual worlds!  This new tale is a prequel, which will focus on Ermengarde's friendship with Fira, a blue dragon, and her quest for the one thing her father says he most wants, a star of his own.  In this story, the princess is just 14 years old but already a formidable young woman obviously destined for greatness. 

I've begun creating settings and character portraits.  Here are a couple of those portraits, just to whet readers' appetites for fantasy.
Ermengarde of Obifobus, Age 14

Fira, a young Resident of The Dragonian Forest

Farewell To An Inspiration



I am broken-hearted to learn of the loss of one of the metaverse's poetical stars, Serene Bechir.  It was Serene who inspired me and encouraged me to start writing again after years away from the craft and  it was Serene who showed me how a virtual girl can make a real life from her poems.  I am so glad that her voice can be heard still on YouTube and elsewhere.  She was well-known for her improve poems. The video above is from 2011.  I did not make the video and was not present for the performance.  I am so glad it can be seen now, after she is lost.

Hey! This Weekend, I Hung Out With Freda. At, uh, Freda's Place.

A few week's ago I was googling myself (as one does) and found there is another Freda's Place and it's not far from me at all.  So this Saturday, Mike and I ventured down to Fort Lauderdale, where we dined with our friend, Paul, at Freda's Place.  The Caribbean food was magnificently tasty and the owners, Freda and her family, were very welcoming.  We will definitely return to see them again and enjoy another fabulous meal when next we brave the wilds of South Florida.

That's me, Freda, proprietor of THIS Freda's Place,
standing outside the other Freda's Place.

Two Freda's after a wonderful meal. 
That's Freda's son, Lorenzo, doing a little advertising behind us.

Kitely History Month Continues: VikingWorld

This morning I spent a few minutes exploring Seanchai Library's VikingWorld in Kitely.  This is another visually appealing world with a lot of potential for storytelling and RP.
