They are befriended by a primitive life style people who turn out to be
When I wrote Hand of Glory. I started a thread about the work. This time I am somewhat limited, as I can't openly talk of my work in progress, or rather my two works. So I thought I would blog my general thoughts on the process as the work progresses
I will call the two stories.
Effort One and Effort Two, very original I know, lol...
Effort one has been in my mind for a long time, thought about, outlined in some detail, changed, re-outlined, mulled over

“Ophiuchus: Last Days of 2012” written by David L. Powell III centers on the title character in her effort to create a measure of chaos for “the righteous.” Incorporating a conception of spiritual faith, the narrative explores relatively complex notions of loyalty, power, and belief.

With elements of suspense and

Scalzi does it again.
At his blog site, John's made comments about a Times Article on blogging.
I particularly liked the comment from John and The Times that there are 3 types of blog site:
The Times also notes that of the millions of blogs that exist, only a tiny margin get a readership beyond the bloggger and the blogger’s mom (”OMG I can’t believe my mom read what I wrote about her on my blog”), and thus as a consequence most are eventually abandoned.
As you can see,I am just a little girl who love dreaming very much.Maybe I can't write a worderful novel,but I will never give up my dream.I just love reading,and I just keep writing.
So i heard u guys talking about Night World i LOVE Night World im 12 and with all the stories i cant wait for strange fate to come out
It's up HERE.
Now I'm off to read some.
The City and the City review's up and getting hit big time, by the looks of things.
So too's the review of Mark Charan Newton's Nights of Villjamur and Joe Abercrombie's Best Served Cold - three of the best I've read this year.
Such things make the world good. Sort've counterbalances when we lose one of our own, such as David Eddings, as we have today. Though many say that they've moved on from his books, most of his books, especially the Belgariad series, are where
I found today my Freshman year high school planner (or schedule book). I hadn't realized how much inspirational quotations there were scattered throughout it. There were also many questions posed to the user. Anyway, I've dictated the one's that I found... inspirational for maybe more than just oneself (meaning that one could also use such words geared towards his/her writing). Nevertheless, I would like to share them with you (I warn you, it’s quite a long list!):

Eek. They'll be here this time Friday. I can't believe I do my AS exams - why does time insist on going so fast? I don't have enough time to learn everything about Nazi Germany, Communist Russia, the first 3 centuries of the Christian church, a novel and 24 poems!
Speaking of poems, is anyone here a fan of Edward Thomas, and if you are could you point me in the direction of some good websites? I can't seem to find any worthwhile. At least Robert Frost has enough sites - I love him.

Slight update. The City and the City review's up. In the pipeline there's a review for Mark Charan Newton's Nights of Villjamur and Joe Abercrombie's Best Served Cold, both of which I loved. Don't think those two will be far from my favourites of 2009, though time will tell - there's still over 6 months to go before I make my list!
However I do like to mix things up, so I've reread Robert Heinlein's Rocketship Galileo and Glory Road (well, actually, Glory Road I'm about two-thirds
