Nose to the Grindstone [Jun. 25th, 2009|01:00 am]

Book two of the new chronicles of Paksenarrion's world is now at 155,000 words.

It's after 1 am.  I am wrung out.  VERY tricky day of writing and I was at it from 8 am.   (With breaks, but not long ones except for a two-hour nap.)

Never assume the guy sitting in the bathtub far from his weapons is harmless.

I've long thought that anyone you startle is more dangerous than they were, or will be, when they recover from the startle.

A man in the bathtub is never without his weapon. Or is it his gun?

There are advantages for the writing of interesting scenes in having weapons that aren't autoloaders.

I'm guessing we'll find some reference to just that in Book two, eh?

Yes. Unfortunately, the approach is mined with spoilerish stuff, so I daren't say more.
