So this is the New Year...

Hey everybody, just a quick post to let you all know that I haven't fallen off the face of the planet.

Four things:

  1. I have writer's block/no motivation with current projects/frustration with current projects/despairing of ever writing anything good again. It's a vicious cycle.
  2. I read Tanith Lee's The Claidi Journals over the Christmas holidays, and loved them immensely. Gorgeous prose, unusual and striking world-building, unique and stirring characters... everything you could ask for in a YA fantasy. The fourth book was a little bit of a let-down from the others, but still worth reading to soak in the strange beauties of Tanith Lee's world, and find out how all the various storylines are finally resolved. The books are: Wolf Star, Wolf Tower, Wolf Queen, and Wolf Wing, respectively. Go hit up your local library or bookstore! That's an order!
  3. The Doctor Who finale was breathtakingly awesome and heartbreakingly brilliant. David Tennant, John Simm, and Benard Cribbins all acted their proverbial socks off. A fantastic ending to a fantastic era of Who. The mighty D.T. will be thoroughly missed. :-(
  4. I'd like an agent for my birthday, please.
