Random Thoughts: What if chapter titles were poems?

Strange things happen when I stay up late. I get "ideas." Some times those ideas are brilliant, some times they teeter on the edge of insanity. It's a crap shoot really, because you don't know which will occur.

So as I was reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone, I noticed the titles of the chapters. Some of them were really unusual. So I thought to myself, "These are rather poetic." That thought turned into, what if they were a poem?

So I wrote them all out and added a few connecting words so it would flow a little more smoothly. If I had more time, I'm sure I could rearrange and make something really amazing, but I'm lazy and out of coffee. So, with the titles in their respective orders, here is what I came up with:



Impossible to scare.
An unveiling of sorts:
a cranny, poison kitchen.
Elsewhere.
The Angel of Extinction;
with Black handprints
The Devil’s doorways
are hither-and-thither girl.
Please,
be something else entirely!
The graverobber
or a deadly bird of the soul.
The other door is a world apart
but battle not with monsters!
Not who, but WHAT--
True story!
Hope makes its own magic
like a piece of empty candy;
with infinite patience
Flying is easy but never peace.
 


A soft wrongness of
Not prey, but power
and attitude of prayer.
Starlight to the sun?
You are right.
Both place and person.
Preposterous?
What’s a day,
but the tongue of angels
To do else than kill?
A dream-lost?
Ungodly!
Blood will out, Almost like magic:
Ache and salt and allness.
Snap!
Whole again.
Sudden Evanescence
of pure Teeth
and sugared, The serpentine Madness.
Love is an element
Meant for children of regret…

Blog Tour: A Perilous Journey of Danger and Mayhem (Christopher Healy)

It is 1883—the Age of Invention! A time when great men like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Nicola Tesla, and George Eastman work to turn the country into a mechanical-electrical-industrial marvel: a land of limitless opportunity. And it all happens at the world famous Inventors Guild headquarters in New York City—a place where a great idea, a lot of hard work, and a little bit of luck can find you rubbing elbows with these gods of industry who will usher humanity into the bright promise of the future.
Unless, of course, you’re a woman.
Molly Pepper, daughter of brilliant but unknown inventor Cassandra Pepper, lives with her mother in New York. By day, they make ends meet running a small pickle shop; but by night, they toil and dream of Cassandra shattering the glass ceiling of the Inventors Guild and taking her place among the most famous inventors in America. In an attempt to find a way to exhibit Cassandra’s work at the 1883 World’s Fair, they break into the Inventors Guild—and…

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather.
