Excuses, Excuses

My sincere apologies not posting over the past... almost a month now? Dear God. Well I've officially botched my weekly posting resolution, but no matter.

In place of my own excuses, I'd like to point you towards Writing Excuses. It's an excellent round-table style podcast featuring fantasy novelist Brandon Sanderson (various), cartoonist Howard Tayler (Schlock Mercenary), and horror novelist Dan Wells (I Am Not a Serial Killer). Topics discussed vary, but all of them have to do with writing in some way, and I haven't found any episodes yet that weren't worth listening too.

Also, they update regularly. This is something I could learn from.


Author's Log

About 250 words of a short story. 'Nuff said.

Current Reading

Just read A Thousand Sons, by Graham McNeill. The latest book in the Horus Heresy series from Black Library, A Thousand Sons explores the sorcerous Thousand Sons Space Marines at the height of their powers, and traces their fall from grace into damnation. Like most of the Horus Heresy novels, A Thousand Sons takes a historical story that fans of Warhammer 40,000 already think they know, and adds enough twists and surprise revelations to keep the reader engrossed right up until the end of the book. Highly recommended for Warhammer 40,000 fans, and encouraged for any science fiction or fantasy reader.
