- Silmarillion Writers' Guild. "The Work of Small Hands." In honor of the Majority Rules Ficathon, I have decided to finally finish my in-progress-since-2005 novella about Eärwen and Anairë. This was originally titled "He Came Home," and the first chapter was posted in my journal a couple of years ago. The summary:
Valinor has been plunged into darkness, most of the Noldor have gone into exile, and the Teleri grieve for those lost in the kinslaying. The Valar have turned their backs on the remaining Noldor--left without a king--and chaos rules the streets of Tirion. Can Eärwen, the quiet wife of a third-born prince, find the courage and strength to save her husband's people?

- Silmarillion Writers' Guild. Back to Middle-earth Month: The Circles of the World. I have not mentioned this project here on my journal because I simply didn't have time. A project like this takes more work than anyone ever wants to believe in the heady days of planning the thing, but, yes, it is indeed worth it in the end. I cannot take full credit as my co-mods and several other volunteers aided greatly in putting it together--not to mention our myriad talented contributors--but I'm damn proud of it and wanted to share the final project.
