Good to be back Naledi :) All my characters would argue that they are as hot as Legolas lol

It's lovely to see you back, Glorfindel. Legolas may be mad, but compared to the rest of his family he's perfectly reasonable. And hot :)

Thanks Ziggy and Naledi - I am really happy you are enjoying it. I am hoping to write more frequently - gone are the days when I had lots of time.

Yes, it's great to see them back. They're all barking mad. Except gorgeous Legolas, of course.

Reviews For The Elven Sigh

Name: lisse (Anonymous) · Date: September 14, 2012 6:08 · For: The Elven Sigh
She sighed once more, as she was wont to do so often now - new life would never be hers to bring forth, for the seed had died, and with it, her own essence had flown, to where she knew not, cared not.

"so easily spilt, and so dearly mourned"



"Her final sigh was so soft, almost silent, contented even, for with it went her last breath, far away, in search of spring, and the promise of life."

Alpha your writing has the impact of a fist in a velvet glove. It takes me a few moments to recover and realize what has transpired. What skill.

Author's Response: I can only thank you once more for such wonderful words, because provoking strong emotions is as much as I could ever ask to achieve with my writing.

LOL! A sigh by anyother name would sound as sweet!

Author's Response: The bitter-sweetness of a sigh - for all the euphemisms I could have written in its place, there is something phonetically attractive about the word, onomatopoeic, almost. Thank you!!

Very introspective and artistically rendered.

Author's Response: I am honored, thank you very much.

It's beautifully written, I like the sharp contrast between all the promises of spring you conjure with your description and the deep sadness that can't any longer be touched by it.
And I don't think there are too many sighs in this story!
Tinara

Author's Response: Thank you, Tinara. I am glad you liked it!

don't you think it is the context in which they appear rather than the use of one, isolated word?

I do. I don't read books as a publisher does. If a writer can make me fall into the story and feel, actually forget I am reading words, I don't care what those words are at all.

Author's Response: I whole-heartedly agree. I wonder then, at the convoluted mind of the common publisher!!

he vivid red of blood, so easily spilt, and so dearly mourned,

I love this too.

I would like to state I didn't say authors should not write sighs; it was one of four things publishers see as being over-used or amateur, I suppose. If I remember correctly, it was in the context of people writing facial expressions. Publishers want more variety than smiles, shrugs, nods, raised eyebrows. However, those are things people actually do.

Author's Response: I understood you perfectly. The point being that publishers wish for a more ample range of vocabulary, that authors should avoid specific, over-used words - and yet don't you think it is the context in which they appear rather than the use of one, isolated word?

Siiiigh!! :D
That's a lovely, and sad ending, in fact.

The use or non-use of 'sigh' is a definitely a First World problem.

Author's Response: I agree, so don't go editing your sighs, I love them all. Sigh=3, publishers=0

Sometimes a sigh is necessary.

- Erulisse (one L)

Author's Response: Absolutely! Thank you.


Name: Caunedhiel (Signed) · Date: February 09, 2012 21:26 · For: The Elven Sigh
hahaha :) Sigh - 1 Spiced Wine - 0

Author's Response: Hhehe, actually, maybe that should be Sigh 1, publishers 0 Thanks!
