This story was inspired by a beautiful painting done by William P. Jones called Star Fisher. I commented, that such a wonderful picture deserved a story. William quite graciously allowed me to write the story. I am honored and hope my words as elegant as his beautiful drawing. His picture can be found here. Star Fisher Took care of the first sentence -- Thanks again, Chris!!!!!
This is just a short (around 500 words) about a class of people, the Wagoneers, that are found in my story Magic's Secret. It gives some insight into their background. This is a different world as you can tell from the line about the twin suns.
Sweaty and shaken, you've woken from a terrible dream. Nighmara only smiles at your discomforture, knowing full well her creations are to blame. Big thanks to Jim Bowers and Chuck Gregory for the help on this piece. For some final polish, I must say thanks to Ian,and Kelsy. I appreciate the crits, and have made edits.
Reworked this a little bit. This piece started as a prompt from a friend, where she held a contest for others to interpret the words of her young son's wonderful little story. I thought his prompt had quite the fairy tale feel to it, so that was how I expounded on it. Yes, I do have permission to use the prompt and post my story.
My story is inspired by a wonderful painting by Chris Bell. I can only hope my story is as magical as his painting.I'm not good at linking, but you can find the picture in my favorites tab and his http address is:http://www.elfwood.com/~bell1973/the-forest-door.2567654.html I've a newer version on which I'm working, just ironing out a few wrinkles and fixing a few flaws. Hopefully I'll get it posted soon. I was trying to be clever, so brownie points to anyone who can figure out how I came up with the names for my characters.
