Miscellaneous for hitting the road
So, my bags are packed and I’m now on the road for two to three days. I didn’t get to write anything else I am ready to publish during this last week, so it’ll be three days probably without any new posts, unless I am hit by inspiration on the road and pull over to find a wireless signal or something. I do promise to comment in the evenings, and to be back, and as of Saturday I’ll be sitting at my desk for twelve hours a day again, so will probably be writing more and hopefully more analytically. Though it’s been a nice six weeks or so, staring as if in a fog at Mr. Armitage’s body. Grin. I’ll also be listening my way intensively on the road, as I’ve now got Lords of the North and all the Robin Hood audiobooks in my grips (plus Venetia and Sylvester, which I already had. The Convenient Marriage awaits me in Texas).
If you need something to read and haven’t yet, however, I really want to recommend someone that a reader of this blog (I don’t remember any longer who it was) put me on to: khandy. I started with “The Gruinard Project,” became mesmerized by “In the Bleak Midwinter,” and am now eagerly awaiting further installments of “Absolution.” Yes, there is plenty of sex. Yes, there are Mary Sues. Yes, there are plot coincidences. Yes, there are errors in punctuation. All these are generic conventions in fanfic. And yes, I love this stuff. I’ve read Gruinard and Midwinter each at least a dozen times or more. I’m giving in, ok?
Glad you liked the sweet corn post. I just got a spam request from a website called “everybody loves corn.” Would anyone dare to admit if they didn’t?
I’ll miss you. See you when I see you.
