About Me

Writing Sample

It had taken me six years to grow my hair to my waist, where decent women kept it, but only five minutes for Lia to cut it, and now it lay scattered around her brother Mazi’s house like straw on a stable floor.

“Let me get a look at you, Ari.” Lia walked around me nodding. “By Brilliance! You look perfect. What do you think?”

I wiped my eyes, and then wiped my eyes again. In the mirror I saw a gawky, half-grown man, old enough to be out on his own, and young enough to want to be. It was the face of an intimate enemy, one I’d hoped never to see in the mirror again.

“Yes,” I said, closing my eyes. “You’re so smart to have figured this out. I can’t do it.”

“Of course you can. Tenacity, Ari, you’re the strongest, most confident woman I know. This should be easy for you.”

“You would think so,” I whispered. I opened my eyes, and stared into Lia’s face. Her sweet, round baby face had lengthened so much in the last year. This wasn’t the girl who’d followed me around the Fair Sight Inn like the little sister she wished she were. She was thirteen now, almost a grown woman — the same age I’d been when I arrived in Fortisma, ready for a new life on my own terms. “I’ll try. It’s a good idea, and I’m not yet ready to die.”

Never again be stymied in your joy of cooking by your lack of a storehouse of recipes. Armed with only our scale of recipes and a sample of the dish you wish to create, you too can become the chef of your dreams. Great for beginners, but also a perfect tool for any cook diligently pursuing his craft.

Scale of Recipes
Aura faint divination; CL 5th
Slot none; Price 5,000 gp; Weight 2 lbs.
Description
This deluxe scale comes equipped with a digital readout to measure weight in increments down to the grain. In addition, after placing a full serving or dose of an ingestible substance on the metal plate, the user can command the scale of recipes to analyze the substance. This analysis destroys the substance, but a minute later produces a neatly written list of ingredients as well as step-by-step instructions for preparing that substance. These documents will provide a +5 circumstance bonus to any checks made by a reader to reproduce the substance, but will not allow the reader the untrained use of a trained-only skill or the allow the creation of something (such as an extract) which requires a class ability the reader lacks.

Construction Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, hypercognition; Cost 2,500 gp

Write-a-thon Goals

Writing Goals

I’m going to begin the Write-a-Thon by sending out a round of queries. The rest of the Write-a-Thon will be spent either working on projects generated from those, or from a few things I’ve had on the back burner, including a quest-sized adventure and a short story idea I’ve been kicking around. If all else fails, I may just have to finish that novel.

Fundraising Goals

I have set a personal goal of getting at least five sponsors who have never before donated to Clarion West
