Writing and Reading

Writing

While I'm still eyeing my opening chapter and wondering what to do with it, I'm almost finished with Chapter Seventeen. So, progress is being made.

Even though I suspect my word count may actually end up in the 140,000 range, for now I'm leaving it at 100,000.

Reading

I just finished reading Lois McMaster Bujold's "The Curse of Chalion". This is actually the first book I've read of Bujold's. (I know, I know! I've already purchased the first two Vorkosigan books for a future read.)

I thought it was excellent and I look forward to reading the next two Chalion books.

I'm currently reading Drew Bowling's "The Tower of Shadows". This is a debut fantasy novel (the first of a trilogy) written by a kid still in college. I'm only on page 34 but so far I am enjoying the book quite a bit. One thing is for certain, Bowling loves similes. He's used more similes in the first 33 pages than I have used in my entire WIP so far. But, at least they're enjoyable ones.

Next up after this is either going to be Brian Ruckley's "Winterbirth" or Gail Z. Martin's "The Summoner" (this last one I still have to purchase. The local B&N was out of it. However, after reading the opening chapter online, I'm really interested in diving into this.) But then again, perhaps it might be David B. Coe's "Children of Amarid".

We'll see.
