Daniel Abraham isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but he does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from his feed.

Well, the summer’s over and I’m a little behind where I wanted to be. The TV show, it turns out, could easily have been a full time job all on its own. But since we’re not giving *that* up, I (Daniel) am dropping off Twitter & Facebook for a couple three months. And, to make sure I don’t cheat, I’ve had my Darling Wife change my passwords.


I’ve also deleted my favorite games and news apps.

“There's ways you can trust an enemy you can't always trust a friend. An enemy's never going to betray your trust.”
Daniel Abraham, The Dragon's Path

“We say that flowers return every spring, but that is a lie. It is true that the world is renewed. It is also true that that renewal comes at a price, for even if the flower grows from an ancient vine, the flowers of spring are themselves new to the world, untried and untested.

The flower that wilted last year is gone. Petals once fallen are fallen forever. Flowers do not return in the spring, rather they are replaced. It is in this difference between returned and replaced that the price of renewal is paid.

And as it is for spring flowers, so it is for us.”
Daniel Abraham, The Price of Spring

“That's one of the things Yardem used to tell me that actually made sense. He said that you don't go through grief like it was a chore to be done. You can't push and get finished quicker. The best you can do is change the way you always do, and the time comes when you aren't the same person who was in pain.”
Daniel Abraham, The Dragon's Path
