There is always so much in my head that I want to write, and not enough time to write it all. However, there have been times I've been stuck in how to write a scene and I just keep writing. Usually, something happens that gives me an idea of which direction to go in. (less)

I listened to this on audio with Kate Rudd narrating. It was an entertaining read. Good plot. Although at the end, everything made sense, I wasn't crazy about the main character. She seemed to make a lot of foolish decisions, but in the end, her ...more

I feel the same way about this author as I did about Jane Austen. In Eliot's case, I do appreciate the talent of a woman who was forced to write under a man's name because she wouldn't have been accepted as Mary Ann Evans, but as with Austen's Pride ...more

The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan
“They have no Aes Sedai touching the True Source to protect them. Blacksmith, perhaps the walls have weakened enough for the Dark One himself to touch events. Not with a free hand, or we'd be done already, but maybe tiny shiftings in the threads. A chance turning of one corner instead of another, a chance meeting, a chance word, or what seems like chance, and they could be so far under the Shadow not even Moiraine could bring them back.”
Robert Jordan

The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan
“But sometimes the change chooses you, or the Wheel chooses it for you. And sometimes the Wheel bends a life-thread, or several threads, in such a way that all the surrounding threads are forced to swirl around it, and those force other threads, and those still others, and on and on.”
Robert Jordan
