Today I got to see the Wizards’ War as it happened, right along with Genna, Catri, and the mysterious boy. It took me by surprise–I hadn’t planned anything of the sort for the scene, or for the book, for that matter, but it flowed so beautifully, and so sadly, with the fall of humanity and the rise of the nightlings sketched out in a quick handful of images.
Catri got herself in the sort of trouble that could get her branded and banned from her village, and Genna has enforced a secret that is going to prove even more dangerous for her. The cat has taken an immediate and shocking dislike to the boy. I haven’t yet found out why.
Good writing day, 2,249 words that flew and moved the story forward in some surprising ways.
I want to live in the time of the Sun Wizards. Until it died, it looked like such fun.
