November Doodle

My CLmooc friends doodle every day. This month I mostly illustrate something from my novel, which I’m writing for  NaNoWriMo [National Novel Writing Month]. I write at least 1667 words a day to reach 50,000 total words by November 30th!

Today, I illustrate one of the last events in So Says the Dragon, the novel that comes before this years, which is So Says the Moonstream. It’s where today’s writing begins.

Joseph examines the mystery spirals. 

“The morning passed quickly as Olivia verified the new rosemary plants bordering the willow that had held the vessel in its tangled roots holding the soil and history together. 

“Someone planted them during the night,” Joseph, the crew man assigned to Olivia said. “We see no footprints, but these plants came from a nursery somewhere.”

“No footprints?” Olivia asked. 

“Nothing, except these spirals by each one.” He knelt down and circled an area by each of the closest sprouts. “I almost missed them; they are barely visible, but see—“ he pointed at the one in front of Olivia. “Every once in a while the sunlight catches the moisture in a light of yellow.”

Olivia nodded as she saw the tiny swirls in flashes lasting only long enough that, between the blinks of an eye, one might possibly catch the yellow. 

“Do you see them?” Joseph looked up at her”
