I've missed you too. Whatcha been up to? That's cool. Me? Work, video games - I won't lie - then more work. I know. Shut up.
A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess as well as Stephen King's The Eyes of the Dragon and The Gunslinger were either read or reread in pretty rapid succession over the last month. With the completion, I want to claim that the spell of procrastination has been broken. The spell of writer's block is one thing, but Procrastination is a nasty, soul-eating bitch.
From Eyes I saw how, like a shorter version of GRRM's A Song of Ice and Fire, one can properly use constantly swapping POV to progress timelines and motives of even the most heinous of enemies. I admit I appreciate the segue into the next entry...
...The Gunslinger, which was actually a second run through. It's one of those books that makes you connect the dots on the reread which I appreciate and also wish I had the skill to construct on my first attempt. Although, even Steve had to go back and retcon his first entry to make it jive with the rest of the books. So I don't feel so bad.
At any rate, I plan to update regularly throughout the next month as I try to attack in full force.
