The other day in Archeology class, the guest lecturer was presenting his research around Taos in the Rio Grande gorge. Many of the slides were pictures of students in cowboy hats but there were also lots of images of rock art.
One of the rock art panels had an image on it: a small circle inside a larger circle, with squiggly lines radiating between them.
It looks exactly like something I sketched for Princess.
It gave me some ideas for how to reveal important magic-system information in the second book.
In the meantime, I should get back to the first book, since I haven’t written that one yet (but I’m starting soon!!)…
