Do you think you could make a scifi version of this someday? Although granted I go more fore silent film type stuff, it might be nice to know some scifi and fantasy words. No pressure though. Keep up the good work.
Although l'de have to search my manuscripts l think l've used a few at least, especially because the hero of Signet of Solomon is lrish and raised partially in 12th century Scotland whereas the protagonist of Payment in Kind is a mid 17th century Scot.l know l used Claymore.l decided to use it for the basket hilted broad sword rather than the two handed type though both bore the name. As l used both l did not wish to confuse the two and scholars cannot seem to decide which properly deserves the name.The two handed sword was earlier, used from the latter 13th through 17th centuries. Yet, the basket hilted type from the 17th-18th centuries definitely bore the name as well.Both were localized varients of more widely used woepons.We'll see if my attempts at Scottish brough in the dialogue survives in the final version.l used it more in the 17th century tale since there was semi comprehensible English by then though l decided against these and thous for the English speakers.
Omen: Get in line, I have been working like crazy also. I have two major projects I have to finish and hopefully everything slows down. Haven't had time to log into the board... I actually miss it. It feels good popping my head in to see what's going on.

g40t90yes: Good Morning. Now I am no political activist, but with is going on in today's activist world, I have a question. Last Sunday Vice President Pence walked out of a Colts Football game because the Players took a knee. I would like to read your View about this

g40t90yes: Continue. Now The NFL Owners (Jones-Cowboys, Ross-Dolphins) are going to demand their players stand for the Anthem. Again just thinking out loud. Couple of weeks ago Owners (Jones) knelt with players. Now you are pulling back. Why??

g40t90yes: One more thing. Some people view The NFL Draft and NBA Draft as a modern day or fashionable auction block for black young men. Thoughts!!! Please.

The Muse: Im sure there are going to be a lot of thoughts on this...why not start a thread on the topic under the "chat" board. It will be easier for everyone to read and comment on it there. This shoutbox is kinda cumbersome to have to scroll through to read stuff.

The Muse: Where does the time go?

Omen: I don't know... some say time goes around in circles - for me, its just a dreary long squiggly line, in some places in its a smile, in others... its not.
