What I’m Reading:
The Fellowship of the Ring – J.R.R. Tolkien (I never get tired of rereading it!)
Red Nails – Robert E. Howard (Conan the Barbarian!- I had to laugh at the dialogue tag “quoth he”. No joke, that’s really there)
What I Gave Up On:
Under The Dome – Stephen King (boring) (gave up: 120 pages in)
The Eyes of the Dragon – Stephen King (extra boring) (gave up: 90 pages in)
What I’m Writing:
El Diablo – (horror novelette) Nearly done. I should have been done with it a while ago but I got distracted by another idea! (see below)
Roem (working title) – Fantasy story inspired by native cultures and mythologies of North and South America. Originally intended to be “sword and sorcery” but has developed into more epic-ish fantasy. No elves, dragons, trolls, orcs, dwarves involved. I thought, why is pseudo-medieval Europe the standard setting for fantasy stories? I want to do something different.
What are you reading/writing/giving up on?
