AbsoluteWrite October Blog Chain

This month's theme is "masquerade". Our host is the - let's hear it for her - AuburnAssassin. Thanks! My contribution comes from a work in progress.

Poor Elizabeth Starling. Her life is defined by "if only's". If only she hadn't been struck with a terminal illness before modern medicine. If only her father hadn't been a third rate wizard. If only his spell, meant to transfer her mind into an able body, didn't keep repeating...and repeating...

  3. Hello, best online handle ever!

    This is from a sehkrit WIP that's been patiently waiting in a file on my desktop while I try my best to make room for it. So sorry, but this is it. For now...

  4. Wow, that's quite a tease of snippet. You've got that sehkritted away WAITING?!! I have so many burning curiosity questions about the whole of this, it's not even funny. He's killed her 5 times already...heh-heh, quite the hot and cold relationship there. Well done!!

  5. Wow. This is intense, and outrageous! I'm definitely intrigued... :)

  6. So she can temporarily escape Victor by simply dieing, kind of like in Farmer's Riverworld series? Cool!

  7. I'd say this WIP needs to see the light of day. Great stuff!

  8. Thank you each for stopping by. Claire, you aren't the only one with questions. I have yet to fully outline this beastie, and I'm thinking about it constantly!

  9. Risque! I like the concept, though; sounds like a high fantasy Quantum Leap.

  10. Good luck working on this one! Great for masquerade! Well done!

  11. Interesting gender bending there. Sexuality is what lies on the inside?

  12. Interesting gender twist on the reincarnating front. You'll be hard to follow!

  13. Thanks for taking the time to stop by, everybody!

    We've got a super talented, very diverse group here. I'm on pins and needles for the folks yet to come (and those who came before).

    Quantum Leap. *snerk*

  15. Was...was I just drive-by commented? :)

    Get your sleep on. It'll keep.

  16. Ha, I loved it!

    I really got into it, wrapped up in the excitement.

    Great story!

  17. Yeah, questions abound. I can't help but want to explore more to find out exactly what is going on. It's intriguing. I hope you attack this one with a passion and get it finished. :-)

  18. Hey, cool idea and a lovely excerpt, too! I'm definitely chuckling.

  19. Sorry I was so slow to get your comments added! What can I say? I suck as a moderator.

    Questions abound for me as well. I like the concept, and have a few scenes worked out, but I'm still circling, looking for a plot for Miss Elizabeth.

  20. Awesome! I really enjoyed it. So many possibilities right under the surface... ;)
