Writing the Elfyverse . . . and beyond

October 2012 Quick Hits, Pt. 2

leave a comment »

Time for some more quick hits, folks . . . especially as I’ve been too busy to come up with a complete blog post this week.  Yet it’s wrong to neglect my blog, now, isn’t it?  (Don’t answer that.)

Anyway, here’s a few things I’ve been thinking about since my last blog:

  1. I’m sick and tired of all the sniping about the election on Facebook.  Whether you’re liberal, conservative, independent-minded or somewhere in between, watching people who otherwise like each other decide to savage each other instead over differing political beliefs just disgusts me.  Jason Cordova wrote an excellent blog about this very thing; I strongly urge you to read it, then reflect upon it.
  2. In case you missed it, Shiny Book Review turned two years old (and Jason Cordova got the domain name, finally) . . . and I forgot to get it a present!  (Unless you figure my ongoing series of book reviews is a present of sorts, that is.)
  3. The San Francisco Giants, behind Madison Bumgarner, won again tonight and have gone up two games to nothing over the Detroit Tigers in the 2012 World Series.  So far the Giants look like a juggernaut, while the Tigers look like they’ve run out of gas.  Look for more of the same in Game 3 unless the Tigers are able to regain some sense of life or energy in the meantime.

Other than that, it’s all writing, editing, and commenting, as per usual . . . and I will be reviewing Mercedes Lackey’s newest Valdemar novel, REDOUBT, tomorrow at SBR.  (Due to circumstances beyond my control, my review of Michael Casey’s THE UNFAIR TRADE is going to have to wait for next week.  That book requires more concentration than I’ve had lately to explain, and I want to do it justice.)

So keep an eye out for tomorrow’s book review, folks . . . and maybe between now and then, I’ll figure out something to blog about, else.
