So I have brought up the symbolism page and I am just staring at it.

I am at the tell me what symbolizes these things... so I am looking at it, Money. What symbolizes money? Money symbolizes money, but that is three not two hundred words. Ok on to the next one. Love. Uh, f plus duck minus the d if I know. Authority. Ok I can to this one. *five minutes later* The traders have their weapons I guess...Authority equals a**-kicking! *wants to go to tvtropes*

emotion_facepalm I now remember why I stuck it in the drafts. I hate symbolism and explaining it. Although I use it a lot.

Moya- Unless you spotted some symbolism in the excerpts I posted and can tell me what it was I do not think so. But thanks for the offer.

Whimsi: Hmmm. I can't think of anything, unfortunately. Sorry! I can suggest common symbols for things and see if you used them...?

Enchantress: Ohh, right! I certainly do hope that you enjoy those. I had a lot of fun writing them. Going to do sooo much editing in January, haha. And then I'll release stories all year long! 3nodding It'll be lovely.

Kendra: Aww, shucks. I'll happily send you as many of my stories as you're interested in reading! All the best with your goals, too. emotion_hug You're such a sweetheart, you know that?

Shadow: Woo, great list! I love it, and I cannot wait to see what you come up with! whee I'm so excited!

Kendra and Shadow- Such great lists!

Moya- No that is fine and they need to be culture specific to my in world cultures. I have created lists of the cultures and am starting to fill them in and am about half done with the two prompts I aimed for today.

50/266 bubbles translated! biggrin Woo.

Whimsi: Sounds like a big (and really fascinating) project! Best of luck!

Kendra: Well, not everything I write is wonderful, hahaha. If you send me a PM to remind me, though, I can send you a download link with my NaNo short stories. Your call, though. (And, if you read my first book, I might be able to send you my second through fourth books in their current drafts.) But that's all in rough draft form. It'll be much better once I edit everything!

Enchantress: I sure hope you feel better soon!
