Winter is Coming…in Summer

Well, there goes summer.  Back to Westeros I go.

I’ve been feeling a lot of anticipation recently.  I’m nearly finished reading Moving Pictures, and my next book is A Storm of Swords.  Back to the world of Westeros and the coming winter.  It was just pure luck that we had a storm coming through today, so I had to take the opportunity to make this brief video.

It’s not often that I feel such a great amount of anticipation for a book.  I’m really looking forward to this.

What are you looking forward to reading this summer?

Camp NaNoWriMo Comes Again


Guess what it’s time for?  Camp NaNoWriMo is starting up again for July!  Just like the April camp, it’s a more informal version than the main NaNoWriMo in November.  You can set any limit you like, and try to achieve that through the month.  In November, the minimum is always 50,000 words.

However, I won’t be participating this time.  I have no project I’d like to work on that could be included.  I have a work in progress, but I feel that it doesn’t fit the camp.  I will also be doing some flash fiction, but I don’t know how much.  I don’t feel like I can include that with any confidence.

But wait a moment.  If you think you can convince me to join, then I will welcome any comments trying to show me some compelling reasons why I should join.  There’s a little time left, so try to convince me in the comments.
