rompts! Deadloch! Swans! Quaintly Fig has some fun Our Flag Means Death story prompts. They could work for any story, really! Rolling the dice (as it were) is so fun! Here are the three latest ones I landed on: Avast Ye! prompt Happiness Happens prompt Random prompt I love the show Deadloch ! Yesterday, the news broke -- Season 2 is a go ! One of my favourite characters on Deadloch is played by Madeleine Sami , who plays Archie in season 2 of Our Flag Means Death! We've finally had some summer weather, perfect for yoga at the beach! Swans! Do you enjoy writing (or drawing or anything!) based on prompts?

Larksong: The End, plus a Heart-lifting Cameo!

Image
ne year on, we reach the end of Larksong ! Larksong is set in a lakeside town on the outskirts of Montreal, in July 1914. Here's where it all began... In chapters 1 to 10, Alice arrives at the family cottage following her grandmother's funeral, to take care of her grandmother's aviary--only to find that her parents have already leased the cottage to another prominent Montreal family. The only way she can have one final summer in her favourite place is to surreptitiously take on the role of governess to the two young girls. Gradually, she bonds with them, and eases into her feigned position. Then she learns that their older brother George, laid up with a broken leg, will be staying as well, for rest and recuperation. Upon his arrival, Alice keeps up her governess role as best she can. She finds George attractive and interesting--but also unbearably entitled. They can't seem to stop arguing over everything--including the rumours of political events in Europe.
