A: So D, are you feeling better?
D: Better than what, A?
A: You had a few sniffles the other day; I’m just asking after your wellbeing.
D: I thought we agreed never to speak of that.
A: Admit it; you have a soft spot for Claude.
D: Despite that he is not a warrior’s hound, I may.
A: That is the best image ever.
A: A Druid warrior with a pocket pet. That just made my Friday.
D: Do you want to know what would make my Friday?
D: Oh, come on A, play along.
A: Fine, what would make your Friday, D?
D: You to get over your hang-ups with the 1916 Rising, give Maureen her head, and fill in the rest of Part 2.
A: I’m working on it – I’ve outlined, story-boarded and drafted as much of the ending to that part as I can.
D: Good girl, A.
A: Don’t congratulate me until it’s complete. Besides, I know the real reason why you want me to get on to Part 3.
D: I’m breathless with anticipation.
A: You get a starring role – or at the very least a strong supporting role.
D: And I don’t have to change my name!!!
A: (To protect the oblivious).
D: I heard that.
A: Don’t you have a tale to tell?
The Druid Tells the Tale
D: Head on over to Kira’s My Pen, My Sword for “Add a line Poetry.” A and I would participate, but she’s deplorable and it is difficult for me to carry her and translate my own prose from my native Pict.
A: He’s not wrong. . .for once. And in that vein, Charles at Legends of Windemere has a lovely poem about friendships and Melissa Janda – The Buzz on Writing has a very fun Dr. Seuss-inspired piece of prose . I may not be able to craft a line, but I do love those who can. Even those who can only do it in Pict.
D: It’s not that I can’t—
A: Just accept the compliment, D.
D: Fine. Ms. Briana Vested at When I Became an Author, who is a time-traveler in her own right (D has a soft spot for cowboys. . . She’s not wrong. They’re American Druids, A. With Cows. And horses. Um, sure, D.), is looking to sell 100 books by July 1. Check out her post.
