On the side of a hill in the deep forest green, tracing a sparrow on snow-crested ground,
blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain sleeps unaware of the clarion call.
On the side of a hill, a sprinkling of leaves washes the grave with silvery tears,
a soldier cleans and polishes a gun.
War bellows, blazing in scarlet battalions, generals order their soldiers to kill
and to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten

Writerly Linkee-poo

Maggie Steifvater and her Giant Butt-Kicking How to Write a Novel Post. Linked to with full acknowledgement that I should be writing on this lunch break. (Grokked from fellow VPXII'er Catherine Schaff Stump)

A newly discovered tab over at Duotrope, Deadline Calendar. Lots of interesting markets there (themed anthos mostly). I think this page ROCKs, BTW.

Speaking of anthos, Writer Tamago (aka Catherine Schaff Stump, link above) points us at Drollerie Press' call for submissions to their anthos. If Ann takes a pass on History of Lighting I know where I'm sending it next (although both deadlines are next year).

Something very cool to me, The Soldier in later Medieval England: An exciting new AHRC research project with attendant database. (Grokked from Joshua Palmatier - BTW, happy book day, Josh)
