Speaking of one of my favorite medieval ladies. A novel of Eleanor of Aquitane and her tumultuous marriage to Henry II. How she was eventually locked away by her husband and how she supported her sons in open rebellion against Henry. You know, typical family drama.

-My only writing goal is to keep The Golden Girls blog going. I missed one and then the first one for September. I was just too busy or burnt out some weekends. I wrote over 80,000 words for freelance novellas/novels and short stories this month. This word count doesn’t include the blogs, which are usually about 2,000 words, so yea. Busy. All. The. Time. -Try to actually read something out of the pile. The to-read pile can go frolic in a field and wait for me along with all my missing free time. I've been rereading LOTR for the 9th (10th?) time. I apparently just pretend I'll read other stuff.
-Survive? My MFA program starts September 23rd. I'm booked until February for freelance work, so I envision more skipped Golden Girls blogs in the future and a complete lack of sanity on my part. I complain, but I actually like the freelance work, it's just I have a shitty dayjob too.
-The final book in Kendare Blake's Three Dark Crowns series is out today! I preordered it and will be finishing it before classes start. I am really hoping plot armor doesn't keep Jules alive...
Also who named this series
Book 1: Three Dark Crowns
Book 2: One Dark Throne
Book 3: Two Dark Reigns
Book 4: Five Dark Fates
WHHHHHHHHY?! It looks like my books are out of order and I think this was done on purpose to annoy me. Personally. HarperTeen just wants to upset me.

It's an adventure of epic proportions! Bilbo Baggins leaves his comfortable Hobbit hole as the 14th member of a Dwarven mission to evict a squatter from their mountain. And he never lets the reader forget he'd rather be in his cozy hole. Also, Bombur, who is quite fat. Tolkien makes a point of mentioning how fat Bombur is 12 times and he's only mentioned about 15 times by name the whole book.

Continue rom-com story Ha. Ha. That'd be nice.
Read three books in my to-be-read pile. I started two books from my pile and they sucked so I reread The Hobbit and read Bridget Jones's Diary andThe Rise of Kyoshi. So I still read three, but my pile of to-be-read books remains large and in charge.
-I have two long freelance projects that'll take me all month to finish. My only writing goal is to keep The Golden Girls blog going. I don't want to fall behind on my weekly updates like I did with my recommendation Mondays.

If you took my advice so many weeks ago and played the Dragon Age games, you should know go out and read the World of Thedas books. The books take the history the games set up and bring it to the next level. The history of the Blight is expanded. The history of mages, the imperium, and Andraste paint a vivid picture that becomes the background for the games.
