Re: How much did you write today? 620.

Better than the last few days, anyway. Keep on hammering, I say, keep on hammering.

Re: The Joy of Edits
get it down @Jmack - I'm surprised you're guilty of that... trust me, you can't get the first bit right until after you've written the last bit.

get it down...
Not sure about that. The first part of THE NOVEL I've been working on is perfect. It's taken a few revisions, lots of words taken out, put back in, whirled around, turned upside down and jiggled around, but it's just right now. Spoilered for those interested.

Spoiler for Hiden:
The magician sighed.

It was a few thousand words but I've taken out the ones I wasn't happy with. This. Is. PERFECT. Don't tell me it's not. Don't you dare suggest I CHANGE ANOTHER DAMN WORD.

Re: Orbit Fantasy Writing Workshop: Submissions now open Sigh. Came in the top 10.... but no dice.

I get a free book though. So that's nice.


Anyone else have any luck?

Re: Favorite part of writing fantasy? Describing the fantastic is absolutely my favourite part.

The book said we would see nokken this night, and we did. They came as expected, beautiful white horses stampeding towards us, backed by the thrill of violins played by unseen hands. I was expert now and between us the chatter of our rifles soon stilled the hoofbeats of those devilish shapechangers. I saw only one change; a nokken that reared up in front of Mama, scorpion tail erupting from its back as its front legs melted and thickened into chitinous plates. Mama’s rifle laid it to rest with a bullet to the heart. She never even blinked.

I just adore writing stuff like the above and honing it and honing it until it sounds just right (for me). I'm not sure there's any other genre that I could indulge in like this.

Superb stuff.

Re: Tor permanent close to short fiction I might fire off a story just before the deadline. I've never submitted to Tor due to the lengthy wait times, but it would be a shame not to have been rejected by them at least once.

Re: Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens I'm not a fan of Star Wars, so going to see this was always going to be interesting.

I thought it was the best of the bunch. I haven't seen any of the other films in a loooong time, but this one struck a lot of the right notes. The first 45 minutes in particular were excellent. Loved the Nausicaa vibes during Rey's introduction and I much preferred her as a hero to Luke Skywalker. Kylo was good.

Yeah. Recommended.
