Just a quick update to let everyone know I'm on term break, not dead. I spent last weekend with Tim in Muncie, then came back home to Fort Wayne on Sunday evening. I've made some progress on my NaNo project this week, which was kind of a big shocker, because I usually just say I'm going to work on something like that and end up watching back-to-back documentaries about giant jellyfish instead. But no! Real progress! I admit that I'm kind of daunted by the idea of actually starting to write this thing, though. I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be able to finish by the November 31 deadline. To be honest, I'm just going to be glad to start the project. NaNo just gives me an excuse to pretend I'll stick to deadlines.

Today I am going to hang out with my dog and read Game of Thrones.

I am also going to try to watch Third Star without crying so much that I throw up.

How are you finding Game of Thrones? I'm really enjoying it, but I feel like I can't commit to reading more than one or two chapters at a time.

I'm enjoying it more than I thought I would, actually. I thought it would be difficult to keep up a reading regimen with it and, you know, stay interested. But I'm going along at a fairly good clip right now.

I think I would enjoy it less if I hadn't seen the miniseries. I know that's horrible and not very "good fan" of me, but I find that I'm able to keep track of a hell of a lot more characters if I have a visual reference for them already in my head.

I watched the first episode of the series after I'd begun the book, and it was great! I'm thinking I need to watch the first season before reading the book any further. As you said, with that many characters and that much going on, it really helps to have the visuals.

Someone is on a very well deserved break! I'm so glad that you're able to get some time in for yourself. And even more so that you like the book. I'm still plugging away on the Passage and I think your current read of choice is next on my list. Maaaaayhaps!

*psssst... Nov only has 30 days.... xD*

eh - you can write 50k words in 30 days... you can probably even write 50k words of the same work in 30 days... it's only 1,667 words per day... no problem. =)
