Here’s the Pratchett quote Gin recommended (thank you, Gin!):
I think Pratchett is more quotable than the Bible or Shakespeare, but that may just be because I like Pratchett better than the Bible or Shakespeare.
Then, a head’s up. There’ll be a book out in October with my name on it called It Must Be Christmas. It’s an anthology of Christmas novellas. Since I’ve only ever written one Christmas novella, guess what’s in it? Again. You have been warned.
Then in iZombie last week, Liv ate the brain of a Type A over-achiever in an Asian dish from Taipei:
From the AV Club comments:
The Meal: Steak & brain stir fry (with broccoli, bell peppers, and onions) over noodles
The Heat: Topped with what looked like cayenne – or Thai? – peppers
The Case: Taipei/Type A.
The rest of that quote is “A person ignorant of the possibility of failure can be a half-brick in the path of the bicycle of history.” Or somebody who finishes a book.
Which reminds me: I’m still working on Nita because if I stop, I might lose it, even though it’s not really a book:
Oh and I have a question for anybody who’s good at Latin.
Is the plural of Emeritus Emeriti? As in the previous Devils are each a Devil Emeritus, so the three of them would be the Emeriti, the way the Supreme Court is colloquially referred to as the Supremes?
Only in this case:
Also, I’m pretty sure the book club book is going to be a Pratchett. Because it’s my book club, that’s why.
My brain is fried because I’ve been doing math and science (don’t ever make up a story that involves supernatural worlds on different time lines because then you have to map out time and EXPLAIN things) so I don’t have a big WIP for this week. But I have some magnificent math and science notes and about 8000 words of a novella that will probably never go anywhere because it has no plot. A lot of you have already seen the first scene, so that’s a disappointment, too. I’d try to do better, but I’m actually so lost in the Nita book that I’m writing about giant goats and equilibrium. You’ll just have to make do with Courtney (who, by no coincidence whatsoever, made her first appearance in that Christmas novella I was talking about).
