If I need some time to think about where a book is going next, I can work on another book, work on a short story, or write a poem, nonfiction article, or an essay.

For example, at the moment I have two poems going into translation, a non-fiction book in process--Wolves' Masquerade--and a science fiction series in the works. Plus, I'm doing behind-the-scenes things for Abyss & Apex, and I'm editing someone's novel. I don't have time for writer's block! (less)

Reading challenge

This is the first year I've done a Goodreads reading challenge. I'm glad re-reads count, too, since that's how I relax before retiring every night.

I'll read through an entire series in my library (or on my Kindle), and then move on to another series or book.

Favorite re-read series include Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan Saga, CJ Cherryh's Foreigner series, Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniels and... Read more of this blog post »
