This book, published in November 2020 is set in contemporary Britain during the pandemic, something which the author handles well. It has a very British tone with expressions such as, "Freezing his bollocks off..." and, yes it's the winter, the story takes place over a few months leading up to Christmas and the New Year.
I'm planning to use this blog to discuss what I'm reading - both online and in print - so rather than launch with a whole "blah, blah, my goals and objectives, blah" post, I figure I'll start right in talking about the stories. Today, I read the conclusion of Carter's Recourse: William Carter VI by Christopher Patrick Lydon. If you don't want to be spoiled on the ending, stop reading now!Ok, before I get into the Carter saga, one caveat is in order: I am a tough critic. This is something that a
Well my three years of college have finally paid off. I've been hired on as a web administrator for a local company. It's contract work but the pay is good. Plus it's good, solid, "real-life" work experience that I can put on my resume.Now i just need to pass my MCSD exams and I'm as good as set.
Hmm... I was planning on having the next chapter of DD out today. Actually had the day off... planned to take my dog to the park.... maybe get a little shopping done, do some writing... and none of it happened. Does anyone else have sisters who are under the impression that you
On the off chance that anyone reads this, chapter 15 of Knights of Merlin's Keep is still in the works. I got a bit more done recently though I am still a ways off from finishing the chapter. Can't say when I'll have the time to work on it more. Even though spring quarter is my last quarter of school, I have a few real world projects that are eating up my time including writing a reference manual and designing a comprehensive database interface program.
Thanks, kbois! I'm glad that it helped. I've definitely found myself lost in a wasteland myself, even in short stories, but you can get through it once you realize what's going on, creatively. And high fives for trying out a new genre too! Always a plus!
Rather depends if we get our software patch before then. (we should). I think one work around to the issue if we don't have the patch is to schedule the chapter 1 post 1 hour later than the story posting. Chapter scheduling works fine so long as it doesn't post with the story.
Your timing is impeccable. I've been hanging out in a valley for a while on a story in a new genre (for me) I've been working on for quite some time.
The ideas are there, I just haven't been able to corral them.
You've given me some great tips which I'm going to try.
Thanks for posting this!
