I took a bit of a hiatus there and now it’s April. Whoops!
I’ve been having a busy and somewhat stressful time so I haven’t got as much writing done as I’d hope. The Green and the Gathering Tide just hit 220k (mere moments ago!) and I recently typed the words end of part one. This is going to be a monster novel!
And I’ve started a new short story, presently untitled. Broadly speaking high fantasy, and a concept I’ve been sitting on for a while. It doesn’t have an ending but I’m hoping one will arrive before I finish.
I reviewed The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet, A Time Lord for Change and The Lathe of Heaven on Goodreads. I’m now reading The Blind Assassin but not as often as I’d like as this past couple of days I’ve been vorariously re-reading Lord of the Rings.
I’ve also been pressing on with the 1981 BBC radio series (highly recommended) and watching Ralph Bakshi’s animated adaptation (don’t bother). I will probably be making some Lord of the Rings themed posts in the near future so watch this space.
