So there's this thing going around a bunch of people's blogs where we talk about our current writing projects. I got tagged, and after blowing it off for a week or two, I finally got around to making my post. It's a long one, but hopefully it sounds interesting. Really hopefully, cause I've been slogging away on it for a while now! Stick to the end and I will link back to some other blog posts by other authors, and I will also tag some new folks. IT COULD BE YOU!

For my tagging… um… let's poke one CWest person and some of my favorite non-CWest writing buddies:

 

Georgina Kamsika

S.L. Knapp

Marie Brennan

Mike Underwood

Alec Austin

Aight, Cory. I want my art like you promised!

Because all my cool friends are doing it:

1. Go to page 77 (or 7th) of your current ms
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written. No cheating.

I thought about pulling from Dragons, but I guess that would be cheating. Chiaroscuro is my 'current' manuscript, even if it is on hiatus.

"What if I were to say that I loved you?" Giuliana asked, changing tactics. Pippa's stomach rolled, and it had nothing to do with the movement of the ship. She clenched her teeth hard enough to make her whole body tremble.

She wouldn't cry. She would not cry.

"You've known me your whole life, and I doubt you care for me as much as you do for this new toy of yours." Pippa meant the accusation to be light, but the words fell like lead between them. Giuliana sucked in a breath, drew back as though struck. Pippa stepped closer, hand outstretched. "Giules, I--"

"No." Giuliana cut a hand across Pippa's apology. "I suppose you've the right of it. Given a choice between you and the Hummingswift... well, I agreed to the betrothal, didn't I?"

A tap at the cabin door interrupted them. That aerisian, Visri. Pippa hadn't seen any other crew. She stifled a groan. Chances were he had heard her fight with Giuliana.

"Captain, we have clearance. If we don't lift off now, we'll be--"

"All right, Visri. I'll be out directly." Giuliana scrubbed her face. Sniffled a few times. Sighed hard enough to puff out her cheeks. Then she met Pippa's gaze. "Well, come along. You wanted to see her fly. You can sit in the reserve pilot's jumpseat."

New crossposted blog post in which I rant about alchemy, gender, and the representation of women's perspectives in historical fiction.

I fear I'm becoming predictable.

Cheers!

I started the new Novel in 90 yesterday, and I'm going to try to be a little more active about blogging my experience. Bring on the navel-gazing!!

(In which our intrepid author reveals why she doesn't blog very much.)

Really... I prefer naval-gazing. Isn't that so much prettier?

Music!

 Thank god for Pandora.  Somehow, I completely missed that Loreena McKennitt released a new studio album in 2006 (after a 10-year hiatus), an expanded one in 2008, and another completely new album in 2010.  How did I miss this?  I must have been living under a rock!

Also... apparently ES Posthumus has two albums I've never heard of, so I'm going to have to get those as well.

This is excellent news, because I have little doubt that these five albums will form the core of the music-scape for The City of Light and Shadow.  Yay!

 How does one go about researching bladder configurations in zeppelins, dirigibles, and other balloon-oriented flying machines?

Also, hull configurations for shipping versus passenger versus sporting/messenger types.

I come to you even before I go to google - cause I'm lazy like that.
