No words of wisdom this week. I just finished reading The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orzcy. I liked it pretty well. It's a little too mushy for my taste, so I would not consider it on par with Charles Dickens' Tale of Two Cities or Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, but still a worthwhile read. (How easy it is to critique the words other writers have labored over. I quite realize that I have no books to my name while the Baroness has plenty. I am humbled, but still, my opinion stands that her book was kind of mushy. I liked the movie with Jane Seymour better. The clash of steal against steal is invigorating in the sword fights.)
Now that I have that out of my system, I'm still working on my pirates book in addition to the short stories. (Laura, I think pudding was the best choice for sabotaging shoes of a sibling.) Ah, the world of a writer is filled with many virtual twists and turns. You never know what the day will bring.
