    I have a similar spreadsheet in my computer right now, but the entries are not so numerous (wow!), and they have been more or less randomized. I’m trying to feel them out to see if any want to be written.

    Are any of these at all speaking to you?

    1. Martha Bechtel

      Sadly, yes. ^_^;;

      Dreamer’s Call and it’s sequel (who’s name I forget) were about this pack of magical wolves akin to Talechaser’s Song although flavored a bit more with ‘High Fantasy’. I’d completely forgotten about them till I found the list, and now they won’t get out of my head. Darn you oh magical wolf siblings!

      Oh, and then there’s the Song of the Dragon novel about the deaf girl who finds out that the Singing Dragons aren’t actually singing.

      Or the The Many Moons of Pluto which was inspired by A Winkle In Time and is thus fannishly similar.

      Or, or… darnit, I just need to do a story sum-up for each of them and figure out which are salvageable. ^_~

        That’s what I do with my “kerneling”. I test them out to see if they have any chance of flight at all.

        If you ever feel like trading stories, let me know! I won’t have anything to share until I’ve drafted “No Good Deed,” but my email address is on my infopage if you ever need it. 🙂
