Progress Report

For completely uninteresting yet real reasons, I missed quite a few days of writing recently. Got back on the horse this evening, though; I’m well into Chapter 17 now.

Anybody else read Jacqueline Carey? I’ve got the last book in her Naamah trilogy out from the library and had to reread a lot of stuff to remind myself what came before. I like her worldbuilding and her ability to put together some good intrigue and harrowing adventure, but she’s got one habit that’s starting to get on my nerves, which I will now demonstrate for you.

The realshort paragraph.

Oh well. If you read Carey, don’t just read the Kushiel stuff; she’s got a two-book series called “The Sundering” which is one of the neatest takes on Lord of the Rings I’ve struck.

    I read Santa Olivia and it was good, but not “I’m going to read all your other books” good.

    I haven’t tried those ones. Was it like a fantasy novel or some other kind of thing?

    It’s a coming of age story set in a future dystopia. Officially, it’s sci-fi and there are superhero elements too.

    Oh. Well, that sounds pretty good; maybe I’ll give it a shot.
