Not every moment has to be spent researching world building (which I have done a lot of recently). And not everything you do has to have a direct purpose. Sometimes? You just need to have a little bit of fun to get the creative juices flowing.

Looking at the swirling silver vortex in front of them, the three children were suddenly very much aware of how their lives were about to change and just how little they were prepared for it.
Peering just over the balcony railing, she found herself entranced with the scene of both foreign dignitaries busying themselves in polite conversations and the lords convincing the ladies to take a turn with them around the ballroom floor.
Surprisingly….that was a lot harder than I expected, but I still had a lot of fun doing it. Thanks Vanessa Hall. If you’re reading this, consider yourself tagged! Specifically, though, I’m tagging
