Fire day

Jan 13, 2009

Today was a quieter day, though I am run off my feet keeping up with the day to day business of the cookshop. The children were busy out and about, running their thieving business, and Meyni and I were worrying about the cost of food. Between the flooding along the river and the problems in Ojia, one third of the best farming provinces, the prices of rice and millet are up. We already cannot afford rice, it would be too bad to have to skimp on grain altogether.

At least there is always fish.

I really enjoyed this story. Thank you for writing, it’s so immersive!

Hi Lucy, just wondering if you are still updating this serial? It seems to end here. I wonder if you have stopped or if Suki’s temple outings ended badly…

Massive writer’s block, nothing so dire! I’ve been working on some other projects, but I hope to revisit this one before the end of the year and wrap up Book Two. I suggest subscribing so you’ll be emailed when it updates.

Sorry to hear about writer’s block but very pleased to hear Tapestry is still ongoing. I discovered it some years ago now after reading a short story you had posted somewhere and kept coming back to it and the last couple of weeks decided to start again from the beginning and read the whole thing. I have always loved it – I think Suki and Sev are two of my favourite characters. So. I’ll subscribe and hope the block removes itself!
