Soy un perdedor.

I have not done any significant writing recently. More the fool, I.

The article which the student who cited me quoted was “Should your faith influence your vote?”

The ideas for Fragile Gods are starting to congeal into more tangible forms.

Work (that is, my day job) is insane. There are myriad double-bookings this week, which means I have to be the bad guy and tell people to shape up even though I have no real power of enforcement over such idiocy. Then when the customers discover they’ve been double-booked, I get to take the fall. Lovely.

George R. R. Martin is better than I remembered. Why did I get bored in the middle of book two?

My father in law is not impressed or gripped by the opening of Elantris, which is one of the best fantasy books I’ve ever read, bar none. To each his own; your mileage may vary. (This is karmic revenge for the fact I have hated two of his very favorite fantasy series.)

Maybe Brandon Sanderson represents a generational shift. After all, my dad didn’t like Fight Club. (I know, right?)

IGMS (see sidebar on the right) has not yet rejected Woman’s Best Friend. Until I learn otherwise, I am choosing to interpret this as “no news is good news”. Perhaps my rejection letter is late because my manuscript made it from slush pile 1 into slush pile 2. One can only hope.

DnD Insider continues to disappoint, only this time with software they have actually “completed.” As previously stated, more on this in a future post. (Yeah, yeah, I know.)

Who are your favorite fictional characters, and why? Mine have included Hannibal Lector and the Joker from The Dark Knight. For outright heroes, I’d have to honestly say Rand from the Wheel of Time Series in spite of the fact so much else about the series is annoying. Batman in Batman Begins, obviously. Commander Adam from Battlestar Galactica is rapidly becoming a favorite, and I always enjoy scenes with Matt from Heroes. Hiro Nakamura deserves honorable mention here.

When you keep me honest about posting, I’ll keep posting. When the questions and feedback slow or stop, the posting slows or stops. You, my readers, have more power than is reasonable. Especially for those of you I don’t know that well.

I wonder if film composition would have been an easier secondary career than writer.

    Rand? Seriously? He’s the ne character (save for the forsaken’s exposition) that it bores me to tears to read. Matt has him beat quite soundly.

    I agree that Mat is fun to read; Perrin I find to be too much of a pushover, in politics, to his wife, etc.

    In Rand I enjoy the idea of a “hero” actually trying to make himself more of an a$$hole because he thinks he must; often succeeding.

    I do agree the forsaken are as boring to read as taking bets on which paint dries faster.
