Hurray for Tanita Davis!

Young adult novelist Tanita Davis just won a Coretta Scott King honor for her novel Mares War. The Coretta Scott King award is awarded for distinguished portrayal of African American experience in literature for children. What does this have to do with dungeons? Tanita is the owner of the original of today's Writer's Block Dungeon. Yay Tanita! We're all very proud of you!

As you might have guessed, I drew this dungeon while struggling with a particularly nasty bout of writer's block. Dungeons aren't just about the monsters under the Earth. Some dungeons, like this one are about the monsters inside.

So keep delving!

And that lovely little dungeon sits next to her desk, to remind her that there's a world outside of her dungeon!

I happy to hear that! It's good to know that my dungeon is getting good use. Maybe next week I'll post *my* inspiration dungeon that I keep nearby for my regularly-scheduled sanity check.

I'm turning that over in my mind: you have a dungeon which plays some role in ensuring your sanity. And it inspires you. Hmm.

"The Death of Rats was once merely a part of Death himself, but after the events of Reaper Man, Death decided to keep him on as an independent entity - possibly for sentimental reasons."

Are you implying that I'm keeping dungeons around for sentimental reasons?

Hey: if they're outside your head, that's all that counts, right?
