Re: Jobs or Degrees outside of Writing? You know, the problem is that I don't watch either of those shows.  I know nothing about Code Black.
I will say it doesn't seem like it's much like Greys Anatomy... I haven't spent much time making long and wistful looks at the other doctors/patients/nurses.  More like slurping coffee down and grinding my teeth.

Re: How much did you write today? About 1400 today. 

I had hoped for more, but I'll take it.

Re: Binge reading complete series?
I haven't tried doing one that long yet, but it's going to happen in my future with WoT.
Wish me luck!

You can probably safely skip (or read complete summaries of) several books in the 7-10 range.
;-)

It might actually add value to your experience overall.

Re: Mistborn or The First Law?
You can't go wrong with either in my opinion. I would go with First Law, that way you can read Best Served Cold, which means you could then get to one of my favorite books ever, Heroes.

Heroes was just so awesome.  My favorite First Law world book.

But anyway, I don't think you can go wrong either way.  I prefer First Law because it's grittier and darker and FUNNY (how do people not mention that more?).

Re: The Expanse: Game of Thrones in Space?
Maybe I should give this another shot. I just can't seem to shake the low budget SyFy cheesiness that comes with all their shows. Anyone else feel the same way?

I absolutely feel the same way.  SyFy has a pretty solid track record of making that kind of stuff, and it's usually pretty terrible.

This... well, I don't think this is in that grouping, at least not for me.  It's not like an HBO production or anything, but it has some legitimately good actors, and the effects/graphics are good.

Re: Hey guys!
Welcome! I've already seen you floating around some threads. Glad you're making yourself comfortable already.
 The two series I tell everyone and their family to read. The Light Bringer Saga by Brent Weeks, and The Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson.
Fair warning. The fourth and final book of Light Bringer does not come out until next year. As for Stormlight, we're looking for a late 2016/early 2017 release of book 3... Out of 10. Each book so far has been around 1000 pages.

Hey man, I just wanted to throw out a quick thank you (haven't been here in a while!).
I am LOVING the Light Bringer book.  I just got the Black Prism, and I have been having a great time reading it.  It's some really good stuff.

Thanks!
Chris

Re: What did you read in January? Come share your list and what you thought I read:

The Black Prism by Brent Weeks - loved it
The Gentleman Bastards 1-3 - really finished the tail end of these.  Loved the heck out of it.
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz; I'm a fan of his writing, and it was a very good book.  Be warned it's very much lit-fic.
Moonwalking With Einstein by Josh Foer - follows the author's descent into the wide world of memory championship training.  Very, very interesting, very good book, highly recommended.

And some medical stuff (bleh).
I reviewed Prism and Bastards on my blog, but they were both fairly brief reflections.

Cheers,
Chris
