Beyond the Blog | 12.14.2014

A sliver of life beyond the blog.

right now // Watching The Wire (okay, half-watching it), drinking iced green tea.

manuscripts // Spent an inappropriate amount of time on Nameberry.com and cobbling together a new outline for Frankenscript, the new name I’ve given my WIP. Accurate. Also rewrote the opening to incorporate some of the changes. I hate writing the first scene; my previous attempts have fallen flat.

marginalia // Some misses I wrapped up: Wolf in White Van by John Darnielle (don’t get the hype) and The Treatment by Suzanne Young. This was especially disappointing since I was such a fan of The Program. Luckily, the wonderful Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng was in there. I wish I’d read it earlier, because it would have been included in both the book lists I posted last week!

blogging // As I haven’t started drafting anything for this week, I’m not 100%. I’m hosting a book giveaway and I will have a 1:1000 post up Thursday or Friday, though. Oh, and possibly this random reading challenge I’m putting myself up to completing for 2015. Very arbitrary rules I’ve created. For myself.

one more thing // What’s the best book you read this year and why?

    The best book I read this year would be The Likeness by Tana French. I think her descriptions are delicious, her characters are varied and well-written, and the stories she writes are intricate. I’ve never been a detective story person, but I read her mysteries and they were just the thing. 🙂
