Home Alone

Parris is off in Kansas City, having fun at ConQuest. I'm here at home, working, working, working. It's not fair, it isn't. Waaaah.

I am getting a lot done. Finished an Arya chapter yesterday, and a Sansa chapter the day before. (And before you guys assume I'm writing a chapter a day, I said "finished," not "wrote." Large portions of these particular chapters were written years ago. A chapter a day? I wish). Felt good to get them done. Been making a lot of progress with Dany too.

Even so, the time is going by so fast. I grow ever more pessimistic, but I can't think about dates and deadlines now. My mantra remains the same. One chapter at a time, one page at a time, one sentence at a time.

Progress is progress - too bad deadlines can't be damned...

I will patiently wait for the story to be told. Take your time, and get it done right. :)

I'm probably one of the few folks reading your blog who doesn't mind that the last period hasn't been set in place in the final book yet-- I'm still in Storm of Swords. ;)

I've got to say that it's pretty exciting thinking ahead to where everyone will go over the next books/years. And Arya and Dany are two of my favorite characters so it's fun to hear you've just finished more chapters with them, that there's still so much more left I get to enjoy for the first time about them. :D

Arya and Sansa?! Squee!

Aaaand with GRRM's good example before me, I'm going to stop reading about Westeros and work on my BA so's I can graduate. One page at a time, one sentence at a time...

Glad to hear that the writing is going well, George. A pity you couldn't make ConQuest, but then, neither could I. Damn these "jobs." You could always pretend you're at a con by eating cheetos, drinking unidentifiable "punch" and getting into an argument with yourself over who was the best Green Lantern. Not that *I've* ever done that....yeeeaaaah.

A good story takes time to tell. Take it!

Keep fighin' the good fight, George. Or, the painfully realistic fight where no one is safe from the chopping block. One of those. :)

As the late great Douglas Adams once said
"I love deadlines. I especially
like the whooshing sound they
make as they go flying by."

If that Sansa chapter is indeed for ADWD, this makes my day!

Once it whittles down to "one word at a time", you know it's time to plan more updates about your updates. ;)
