How are you guys doing? I think I got over my jetlag this last week (I at least don’t feel sleepy all the time) so drawing the comic page was not such a big deal. I wish I had more time for drawing though. I’m trying to sketch with pens more, since I’ve never played with ink before, but I manage very little… Sometimes I feel like between working, drawing Replay, and writing, there’s just not enough time to actually meaningfully improve on either. And it’s a very sad thought.
I finally finished listening to A River Enchanted and overall I wasn’t charmed. It started really nicely and the writing is beautiful, but all the plots seemed extremely forced to me and many scenes fell flat and meaningless. Perhaps it just wasn’t a book for me. It’s a duology (the second volume is not published yet), but I don’t think I’ll continue this story. I picked up The Lost Dreamer but I have no idea what it will be about yet. The prose is weird, feels very repetitive, but maybe I’ll get over it as it continues. I’m also in the middle of The Bladed Faith and also haven’t fell in love, mostly because up to 30% of the book the main character was just training to become the most badass guy ever and between 30% and 50% nothing moved the plot forward. People say the ending was great, but I’m sure if I’ll have the patience. Sometimes I just can’t pick the right books… I feel like I’m only complaining recently, but there’s been titles I enjoyed in the last months so it seriously must have been just a bad choice with these. Still, take a look, those are all decent books and just failed to grab me. Maybe they’ll work for you!
As for my own writing (if anyone is interested) – I think I’m done with the outline and will start drafting next week. I’m a bit anxious. Well, I always am when I start a new story, but I want this one to be good. Hopefully I learned something while writing the previous three.
