This is just a quick post. It’s nearly 12pm on Thursday in Australia, but that means it’s still Wednesday in some parts of the world, and therefore this post still counts. 😛
I’m writing this regardless of all that because I was determined this was the week I’d get back to things like blogging, and get back to them properly. And also things like eating properly and… well, I need to get the tyre in my bike fixed before I can get back to that, so that will have to wait until pay day next week. But writing, too. Though that is happening slowly. Uni work is also on the agenda; I’m going to start my winter course this Saturday.
I have very little that I can share for WIPpet Wednesday, but I did write some stuff yesterday. Yesterday was the 24th and 2+4 = 6. Except I’m a day late, so minus 1, and we have five paragraphs (this has nothing to do with the fact that I only wrote five paragraphs).
This is a scene that had bounced around in my head for a while and will probably come at the end of Lessons Learned if it comes at all. Just imagine that they’ve finally worked out their differences with Frederick Merrow and he’s finally going off to wherever ghosts go when they’ve finished their business here.
“You know that immortality is never really set in stone, don’t you, Grace?”
‘What do you mean?”
“If you choose to end it, it will end. But it has to be your choice.”
Grace stared at him, wondering if he was telling the truth. She’d never heard anything about this in the years she’d spent searching for a way to reverse the effects of the Elixir she had drunk.
“Choose wisely, Grace.”
I was also just over at Books Over People, and decided to hop on the WWW Wednesday meme as well. This asks three simple questions, as you’ll see below.
What are you currently reading?
The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd. It’s a YA adaptation of The Island of Doctor Moreau, with his daughter as the main character. I haven’t read the source material, but this book is interesting. Slow-paced, but atmospheric. It doesn’t actually feel like I’ve read 150 pages.
What did you recently finish reading?
I just finished Splintered by A. G. Howard on Monday. It’s an Alice in Wonderland spin-off, and the world-building was good, but I really hated one of the characters and that kind of ruined everything. Apparently he gets worse in the next book, so I’m leaving the series here.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I’m actually thinking I will read The Island of Doctor Moreau, since I have copy on my shelf. It’s only short, so it shouldn’t take me too long to get through.
All right, I suppose I should actually consider doing some work? I’m in that tricky transitional phase in a new position at work, where I’m doing things, but slowly, and the office is basically empty today, so things are going even slower since I’ve got no one to answer my questions. But one colleague did give me something to work on before she went downstairs for a reference shift, so I should have look at that. See you all on your own blogs soon!
