It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? — 8 Comments

    • The first Psy-Changeling novel is Slave to Sensation — it was one of the ones where I really cared about the characters, so an excellent place to start.

      No problem with a random Stieg Larsson recommendation! I tried to read the first one, but couldn’t get into it. I should try again — giving it more than the dozen or so pages that I did the first time around.

  1. Joy,
    5000 to the finish line – Congratulations. Have you completed your novel or willing you be continuing after November to wrap thing up?

    Thanks for being one of my writing buddies this year.

    • It looks like I’ll be writing The End at right about 50,000 words. This is my fourth year participating. The first two years, I rushed through my story and got to the end well before 50,000 words — the last few thousand words those years were mostly journaling about what I had learned about my own creative process. Last year, my story went long — I had to bring in the cavalry to get an ending at a little over 50,000 words. This year, I seem to have it about right. Apparently, I have calibrated myself and my stories to 50,000 words.
