I'm almsot 7000 words deep into a novel I'm writing about Steven Segal :lol: Its mostly about quanitity, not quality. The point is just to write, no matter how bad it is. So you don't have to feel bad about churning out gooseberry fool, which is what I'm doing, seeing as how I'm not a writer. But its definitely fun tho. I doubt ill hit 50K words by the end of the month but ive done 7k this week which is decent.
I present to you, "Birthday Snatcher: The Steven Seagal Chronicles"


How far did you get in the end? Sounds ridiculous! I'll give it a read later, can't remember my password and can't be arsed to sort it out on my phone!


28,000 words at final tally! So a little over halfway. I would have done better but I had a 4 day holiday mid November which put me behind the curve and I never recovered. Still 28k words about Steven Seagal isn't bad :lol: I still plan on getting it to 50k words eventually, but it's nice to take a break after writing so much so fast!!

Loved Ian McEwan's The Children Act.

Also Jonathan Coe's The Rotter's Club.

Now For Whom The Bell Tolls.

Has anyone got one of the more expensive Kindles (the Voyage or the Oasis)? There's only £50 between the Paperwhite and the Voyager so I was wondering if there's any real benefit in stretching a little more. The pressure-sensing bezel seems like a decent new addition but is that all it does over the Paperwhite?

Finished it this evening, it gave me the feels. I was so pleased when he managed to return to London Below..

De Carabas :wub:

I love this book quite a bit (though not quite as much as Stardust whose film is definitely a guilty pleasure). Just noticed there's a Marquis related short story on Amazon for £1.99/£0.99 kindle (How the Marquis got his coat back), tempted.....

To the utter joy of just about everyone (well me anyway), Neil Gaiman's next book is going to be a sequel to Neverwhere.
