So! I’ve finished reading Foundryside and recommended it to my fiance but he’s deeply dissatisfied with the world-building hahahaha The book is still fun to read, though! There’s a lot of action and the ideas are pretty unique. If you like steampunk-like settings definitely check it out. Some world-building glitches might grit between your teeth but it’s worth it to ignore those and just enjoy the ride. As for me, I started Hall of Smoke today (it’s a debut) and it seems it doesn’t have many ratings on Goodreads but I’m pretty happy with it so far.
What else… we had a 4-days long weekend and I spent it working on The Cleansed Ones (my fantasy novel) to try and cut some words. I’m in 2/3 of the book and I went down from 132k to 128k. I won’t be able to cut it to 120k, there’s no way, but maybe 127k will look appealing enough to the literary agents. At least I tried. Will continue trying next week, most likely.
So yeah, I’m tired. And a little irritated because it’s too hot and I’m (unfortunately!) smart enough to know that setting up an inflatable swimming pool on my balcony is definitely not a good idea. I keep thinking about it, though. I also keep thinking about the stupid permanent residence visa that requires me to bully someone into giving me their 3-years’ worth of tax records. Seriously? Normally people don’t even want to say how much they earn, and I need my guarantor to give me their tax records?… Thank you, Japan, for helping me understand what true friendship is like :))))
Anyway, don’t mind me and enjoy the comic!
