Right, I’ve got a few things that I want to get written tonight. Nothing major just some random bits and pieces.
First of all have any of you heard of a writer called Nathan Lowell? He wrote a collection of books that have been called the Share Books. These books follow Ishmael Horatio Wong (I’m fairly confident that I may have spelt his name wrong somewhere there lol). Basically we follow Mr. Wong from when his mother dies when he is in his late teens and he joins the merchant navy and over six books we follow his life. The books start off with Quarter Share, and show the everyday aspects of an intergalactic future. Now it’s been a while since I listened to the first five and ive only just listened to the sixth (Owners Share) and I’ve got to say that it is the best in an outstanding series of stories. If you look these books up, all are available as free podcasts, I’d strongly recommend starting off with the first book, Quarter Share. Heres the link to Mr. Lowell’s website, nathanlowell.com
I’ve also started reading the Battlestar Galactica tie-in novel. I’ve not read many tie-in novels but so far I am enjoying this one, a lot. It has a very fast pace to it, seeing as its based on a tv show that’s kind of understandable. I am sorely tempted to have a Battlestar Galactica DVD marathon early next year 😉
NaNoWriMo is not going quite as well as I had hoped, but we’re not quite halfway into the month yet so I still hold faith that I will hit my personal 40k target.
I have also had an idea that will not leave my brain, I think I’m going to have to write it soon. Or at least a snippet so I can get the feel for it.
