'The Seasons May Drift' and 'Gossamer Wings and Other Things' all is going slow but steady.
I sometimes wish that I could write my works the old fashioned way, with a quill and ink! I remember buying such when I was in my early teens. I liked parchment paper, quills, ink and the topping ,,, a wax stick and a seal.
I tried to work out some calligraphy, or fancy writing, as I called it back then, with wonder and awe. I would sit by candle light and write with my quill, and feel transported back through time! I would write poetry, making it look like a royal letters patent, trimmed it, applied the wax ,a red ribbon and seal, then I would roll it up and tie it with a ribbon! I felt happy with my little creation!
I also tea stained paper to make it look old and made up fantasy maps of mysterious lands and islands. It is a good way to make up some stuff the characters in your book may have or may use, so it brings to life the character you are writing about for your book.
So get your imagination going! The world's your oyster with a pearl! :)
