Weekly excerpt: While she overflowed with her questions and apologies for Morality, Prince Alexandre stayed standing shyly right inside the gate, hoping not to be noticed. He kept his hands deep in his pockets, and his head down. With the kind old gentleman, and the beautiful young girl beside him, hair dancing in the clear gray light of early morning, he seemed out of place in the picturesque pasture. And now, as the sun began to rise, shining on the beauty inside the gate, he felt even more out of place. 
“All your questions will be answered in due time, my love, but first, who is this boy who stands as though he were unwelcome at the gate of my pasture?” Morality asked, putting on a fa├žade of sternness. Then louder, so that Alex could hear, he said, “Does he not know that all those who knock may enter? That all those who enter are welcome?”

Notes/comments: Though I have gotten behind several times, I have caught up pretty easily. I think the reason is motivation and inspiration. Especially inspiraion. I find it's a lot easier to make myself sit down and wrte a couple thousand words this year than it was last year. Why? Because I like my story line a whole lot better. :)

Listening to: Shadowfeet by Brooke Fraser  (you really should hear it if you haven't already - great song.)
