3 stars

Imric the elf-earl takes a chance to leave a changeling in place of a human child. The action plays into the complex calculations of the Aesir, but with tragic consequences for others.

The Broken Sword by Poul Anderson
"DNF at 80%.

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that I'm SO CLOSE to the end, and why would I give up when I've already gotten this far?

Because I'm fucking bored out of my mind, that's why.

I heard that this book was a must read for fans..." Read more of this review »

(Reading a Polish translation, apparently of the 1971 edition.)

This was recommended as a "less condescending" contemporary of Tolkien's LOTR. I don't think I agree; but in any case Tolkien (at least in my memory---I haven't read it in ages) was quite

Bunny Cakes by Rosemary Wells
"Forget about the kids--*I* loved this story, too! I was cracking up the entire time I read it, because the story is so clever. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a children's book so much! :)

For me, though, the best test of any storybook is:..." Read more of this review »

“You don't need special traits, special genes, or special motivation to write a lot. You don't need to want to write--people rarely feel like doing unpleasant tasks that lack deadlines--so don't wait until you feel like it. Productive writing comes from harnessing the power of habit, and habits come from repetition

p.129”
Paul J. Silvia, How to Write a Lot: A Practical Guide to Productive Academic Writing

“Do you need to "find time to teach"? Of course not---you have a teaching schedule, and you never miss it. [...] Finding time is a destructive way of thinking about writing. Never say this again. Instead of finding time to write, allot time to write.”
Paul J. Silvia, How to Write a Lot: A Practical Guide to Productive Academic Writing

“Have been unavoidably detained by the world. Expect us when you see us.”

“It is not the man who has too little, but the man who craves more, that is poor. ”

“Never reward writing with not writing. Rewarding writing by abandoning your schedule is like rewarding yourself for quitting smoking by having a cigarette.”
