Before I start on Into Namarhel - Act III, I'll be writing and sharing other fragments. They are a bit aimless sometimes, simple stream of consciousness pieces, but I have a few new goals I've set for myself this year. One of them is to write twelve short stories. It's an ambitious goal, considering how long it typically takes me to write a single short story, but I like a challenge. In any case, here are this week's scrawls. Maybe I'll turn some of them into short stories.
