Gryphon Gray Deleted Scene

Feeling a little like an archeologist and taking the blog in a new direction this week sharing a passage I unearthed. It’s been six months since I shared Gryphon Gray on the blog and the other day I discovered a deleted scene. It’s essentially backstory and shows what caused M’Ameth problems with the elf elders. She was six years-old at the time, half the age she was in the short story.

In a way, it’s almost a flash fiction piece in its own right.

So, why did I remove it? A couple of reasons. One is that it brings a gryphon into the story early, thus dulling the moment later in the short story. The second, and probably biggest, reason is that it’s a big chunk of backstory that stopped the story dead in its tracks, slowing down the pace that her climb was mimicking.

So, here you are, M’Ameth and her effort
