Good afternoon everyone.  Today UK-based Back Cover Promotions launched their new magazine, “Creative Dreams.”  I am pleased to write the very first feature post for Creative Dreams entitled, “Why I’m Lost.” http://ow.ly/u43yl.

The article discusses why I chose to put out a “Lost Tales” anthology, tips for successful world-building, and the writing process. If you aspire to a career in writing, I hope you will please read this inaugural post and through it, improve your own writing craft.

Have a lovely day and a great upcoming weekend!

“Soft kitty” song lyrics for bird people

Down with the flu today so I made up better words to the “soft kitty” song from The Big Bang Theory. The last two words can also be “swe-et pearl” if singing to cockatiels:

Soft birdy, warm birdy, pretty little girl
Sleepy birdy, happy birdy, wings unfurl.
