SAVED BY THE BUZZ!

Thank you to all who sent happy anniversary wishes last week. This past New Years Day we celebrated the first anniversary of Trowbridge Chronicles. It's been an exciting year of discovery and long hours.

Last week Keno was pinned against a rock wall by an enemy warrior, a sword at his throat. His mission was to run to the Emperor's Palace and seek help from Emperor Nang in hopes of saving Shrew Khan's regiment from being overrun at the Giloh outpost. Our story continues...

YES!! I love online stories! Finally, something I can look forward to when I get home from school! Thank you for making my day brighter!

Exclamation-pointed prattle aside, this really is an excellent thing you're doing (including the cute little illustrations). I only wish I could begin a story myself, but...sigh...homework, homework, homework is all I do.

I thought I had you down at first but last week threw me...since I am relatively new...do you create each panel fresh once you see what the IF subject is??? Great illustration...really enjoy the characters and your technique!

"Kung Shrew?" How fun is that! Those wasps will get your attention no matter what. This is entrancing, amazing and altogether a fantasy worth having in a book, on a DVD, in the theatres...
c'mon Bron...do it again!

Excellent use for 'buzz', Bron! And the first time I've ever heard a story about a wasp saving the day!

Oh my favorite song...Kung Shrew Fighting !! Ah, I don't think so. So clever you are with these wonderful chapters that keep us waiting for more. I could even hear the ominous da-Dummmmmmm at the end after you wrote, "or would they?" Thanks you!!

I'm so glad you didn't really "retire," Mrs. T. Excellent as ever.
Happy New Year & Congratulations on your anniversary.
