Hewn out of the Living Rock

OK, so I’m currently reading “King Solomon’s Mines” by H. Rider Haggard. And I came across a passage that describes something that was “Hewn out of the living rock” and it occurred to me that every single book I have read where any action takes place in a cave or near a cliff has that phrase. Or at least “Hewn from the living rock.” It’s cross genre, from thriller to fantasy to science fiction to anything else.

So I hereby am making a pledge to never put that description into any fiction I should write.

Also, sorry about the lack of a chapter. There should be one Friday. I got distracted with other goings on in my life.

  1. Distractions with the rest of your life are unacceptable. You must make time by hewing it out of the living rock of your day and write for us, dammit.

    Hope you had a good weekend at least.
