Today's blog post is an A to Z. I haven't done an A to Z for a while, and they're a lot of fun to create, especially when combined with my love of reading books and watching movies 😊. This particular list is made up from character-related quotes.
The season changed yesterday, so we can look forward to cooler temperatures, beautiful trees 🍁🍂, and perhaps a few ghosts and pumpkins toward the end of next month 👻🎃. I'm hoping to have the first Light Mage book finished around Hallowe'en, so the rain that's falling right now is probably a good thing in terms of making sure I stay indoors to write! Anyway, onto the A to Z. I hope you enjoy it, and thank you for visiting my blog today!
