More pithiness from Neil Gaiman. Gotta reread American Gods sometime.
…I saved the document on the computer, and I realised I’d finished writing a book.
I wondered what I’d learned, and found myself remembering something Gene Wolfe had told me, six months earlier. “You never learn how to write a novel,” he said. “You just learn how to write the novel that you’re writing.”
This housing search has really put a crimp in my reading and writing schedule. I’ve only read 4 books this month so far, and I don’t think I’ve done any writing at all. I know I had some ideas, though…hopefully they’ll wait until figure out my living situation. And when I have a house…maybe I’ll have a dedicated writing room. Here’s hoping.
Got an email from Friere Jesus today. mmm, spam.
Also cleaning out a smelly freezer. Joy.
But the over-priced Josh Groban CD that I got from Hallmark last night was worth it. Even if only for one song. Or two.
It makes me sad to realize that I haven’t written a word of T6R since January. Nothing saved to a file, anyway. There are all sorts of notes and things written on my last hard copy. So if I lose my bag, I’m SOL. But there are other things on my mind. Soon, I hope, I’ll have some time to devote to writing.
(Listening to Josh Groban’s With You)
So I started the tenth book in the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series on monday night. I finished it last night at about 1:30 am. So that’s two books since friday. Man, I couldn’t get enough. I was just a little disappointed at the ending of the tenth book, but if I tell you why I’d ruin it for you. But damn, getting there was great. I don’t know when the next book comes out and the website hasn’t been updated for a while. I’ll have to wait till paperback though. Did I tell you how much I detest buying hardcover books?
I bought the entire series so far last night. Now I have all ten We’ll see how long it takes me to get through all of them.
See, this is why I started rereading the Lord of the Rings in September; I knew there would be other books occupying my time occasionally. This way I’ll always have something to read
It was a good day at work. There were bands in my PCR. This is a good thing, smile and nod. And vote for my site! Come on, I’m in last place *sniff*
Good night, all… ce’arra *in case you’re wondering, I want to write even more now cause Laurell K Hamilton lives in St. Louis. I want to be just like her Hope my writing gives people shivers like hers does to me.
