And yes, just three weeks ago...I was worried there wouldn't be enough to keep kidlings - and thusly myself - busy once the summer break began. But I haven't seemed to have a moment to write or read...fanfiction, leastaways. I've had plenty of time to read as I'm doing a lot of sitting around and waiting. One of the perils of living forty-five minutes from town. (What DO people who "don't" read do while they're waiting?!) But not much of that time has been spent writing as the laptop is still...not seen as a tool by my persnickety goat-footed muse. I actually...believe...he is laughing his ass off at the idea of it. I'm going to have to get more aggressive about using it.
So, I've read "Frankenstein" and am now wildly anticipating Elizabeth Hand's soon-to-be released Frankenstein. Duncan's "Ink." *swoon* Also I'm not a Romance reader, but my pulp vice is vampires and werewolves - "Blood and Chocolate" could have been insanely cool...and yet still satisfied as a two hour sitting in the truck read. "Botany of Desire" was mind boggling literary non-fiction. I love that genre.
I know, I know - lists instead of reviews. Shame on me. But I'm typing on borrowed time as it is.
Saw "Pan's Labyrinth" and was beyond pleased. Yes, it could have been more but I was so happy with what it was. And "Gormenghast" with the delectable Rhys-Meyers. And "Planet Earth." I've stalled out on Ats because Season 4 was so laughably laughable that I can't quite suspend myself enough - yet - to finish out the series.
Working - inside the skull theatre - on my summer_of_giles
fic. Should be quite fun. I love Giles tweaked just this side of canon.
Hope any flisters reading this are doing well, writing long and lyrical and reading for joy.
