Or…You're either here for the Duran Story or the Author Island contest excerpt
Either way, what you want is right below this post. This is just your explanation so you know you're in the right spot. Because first, we have the inspirational quote of the day. (It's just the way we do things here at The Dragon, in case you're a new visitor. And if you're a new visitor: WELCOME!)
Also, if you're a new visitor, this is Sandy Lender's official main blog where each day (except today) I post a Word of the Day with a clever and sometimes humorous use and give you the opportunity to use it in your own creative and sometimes humorous sentence in the comment field (see past posts for examples). Each day we also have the quote of the day to get you fired up for creativity or coping with whatever you might have happening in your life. And there's sometimes an extra post about writing or marketing or an interview with an author or a book review or a contest announcement or an update on one of my book releases or a scene from the books, etc. You get the idea. Today…we're going to rave about meeting Duran Duran (because that's freakin' inspiring) and I'll post a scene for the contest I'm "doing" during the Author Island all-day chat today.
Visit www.authorisland.com for info on the chat. It's a great chance to meet new authors and hear about new books while discussing recipes and books with other readers.
Visit my publisher's site for info on my fantasy novel, Choices Meant for Gods.
To comment and drive traffic about the ConQuesT39 convention where I'll be speaking this weekend, visit Tina Murray's blog, Jamieson Wolf's blog, Nigel's blog or the Author Island blog. There may be more soon, and I'll let you know as they pop up.

"Hope is the power of being cheerful in circumstances which we know to be desperate."
— G.K. Chesterton
Fantasy Author Sandy Lender wishes you a great and hope-filled day!
"Some days, I just want the dragon to win."
