movie // emperor // smash it

Books 2011

I'd like to say that I've really gotten behind in updating this, but the sad truth is that I haven't been reading all that much. Unless you count the kids' books I read to my students :)

Read so far:

1. The Name of the Wind (Kingkiller Chronicles) by Patrick Rothfuss [x] [N]
2. The Light of Eidon by Karen Hancock [x] [N]
3. Poison Study by Maria Snyder [N]
4. Kushiel's Dart by Jacquline Carey
5. Clockwork Heart by Dru Pagliassotti [x]
6. Pathfinder by Orson Scott Card [x] [N]
7. Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier
8. Wheel of the Infinite by Martha Wells [x] [L]
9. The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss [x] [N]
10. North and South by Elisabeth Gaskell [x] [N]

Currently reading:

Key: x = first time read | L = library book | A = audio book | N = nook

As far as what to read now... I don't know. Can't be something written in 1st person because I'm currently trying to write something in 3rd. I went through Amazon's SF/F section but I feel like everything there is 1) something I've already read, 2) vampire crap, 3) urban fantasy, which I find to be blegh, or... well I guess that's pretty much it. Or they're not well-priced for e-books. Sorry, I'm not paying $12 for an e-book when the physical version is $10. That's ridiculous.

tv // lbd // shoulder touch

"It's Sunday, Sunday" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

- Decided to reread Sense and Sensibility, mainly because whatever I'm reading tends to leak into my writing a bit, and I don't want to start edging into too modern of a voice.

- Had Peter/Olivia dreams last night :D Plus some weirder ones I won't mention.

- I've been wanting to lose a little weight but I abhor exercise. However, cutting down on my intake has almost gotten me back down into the 150s. Woohoo.

- Errands today: Target and eyebrows. Oh, and maybe redying my hair.

I was hoping Game of Thrones might be leaked online before tonight, but so far no luck.

Well played, HBO. Well played.

etc // happy bunny // hostage by plot bu

(no subject)

So far have written two chapters of my current plot bunny (working title: Heaven is Full). It's gone disturbingly well, although it took me ages to get started. I'm hearing the characters well. I'm not struggling with pacing, although I have a tendency to infodump in my first drafts. I may go back and reread it in a couple days and decide it's all crap, but for the moment I'm relatively happy.
