This is a short one. One day I added a bunch to it, but later I decided I was being too obvious and went back to the original. I was never happy with the line breaks, though. Then I looked at it again, and it just worked. The ‘cluttered’ line needed to be the longest, the ‘fall’ line ought to draw a line down. And, as a bonus, it’s shaped a bit like a tree.

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.
