I’m trying to do both, but one always gets in the way of the other.
“Wink” is still a work-in-progress. I wanted to work on it over the weekend, but I didn’t have a computer to work with. I spent most of it doing housework (it was work, even if it wasn’t my house). A few ideas popped into my head that I think I like. I’ve officially given up on NaNoWriMo 2016, though. I’ll try one of the Camp months next year, but for right now, I’ll just piddle around with what I’ve got and go slow. I think most of my problem was that I have no outline…and I didn’t get this idea until a week into NaNoWriMo. Brains are lovely things, aren’t they? Not tricksters at all.
The Tome Topple Read-a-Thon is also coming up in a couple of days. I decided to do the insane thing of writing down the page-count of all of my books. I am really, truly insane. I gave up on that halfway through the F’s. Upside, I found several over-500-page books that I can go through (even though there’s a great possibility that I won’t even get through one!).
I’ve read The Host by Stephenie Meyer before, but I’ve always liked that one, so I might run through it again. I also have the Ezio collection of books by Oliver Bowden, Renaissance, Brotherhood, and Revelations. I’ve read two of these three, and a couple of the other Assassin’s Creed books, but these are over 500 pages! I may try The Furies of Calderon by Jim Butcher, if I get around to it. My World War II book collection is also growing, so I might dive into one of them–I’ve got The Liberation Trilogy by Rick Atkinson, and several books about Hitler and the Third Reich.
I’ll either so through six or seven of these, or I won’t even get through one–there will be no in between.
What are you guys going to do for the read-a-thon?
