Dear Novel

Really?  There are supposed to teaching songs and legends written in metrical verse?  Really?  Maybe you could give me a snippet of a frickin’ hint where to start then, hmm?

 

Who do you think I am, Anne McCaffrey*???

 

 

*do you think “The Ballad of Moreta’s Ride” would fit well into a book in which there is no time travel and no dragons?  Do you think the McCaffrey’s would notice?  Because The Ballad has two things going for it  - one, it is indeed metrical, if memory serves, and b, it is ALREADY WRITTEN.

Substitute the word dragons for the word wagons and the results might surprise you ... problem solved :)
