@eskay8 I’m reading it now and enjoying it. Particularly like to see another author put to bed the idea that second person POV can’t be done well.

@fidgety staying with goth theme, I’ll add Sisters of Mercy cover of Rolling Stones “Gimme Shelter” And and Tiamat’s cover of their song “Sympathy for the Devil.”

@eskay8 I have the audiobook and will be listening Saturday on a long drive.

food, mocktails 

@eskay8 oh and btw there is also non-alcoholic champagne.

food, mocktails 

@eskay8 I’ve seen them done with ginger ale, Martinelli’s sparkling cider, or just slightly flavored sparkling water. I have not tried them. If you don’t want it too sweet the flavored sparkling water may work. Just a hint of flavor; no sugar.

@eskay8 I haven’t read these. Have thought about it, but have a couple of friends who found them kind of depressing and that has held me back for now. I will likely read them at some point, though. Just a question of when.

@eilatan @ann_leckie could be Chandler as well, though maybe he’s a bit later than what we are talking about.

@eskay8 I just searched the Whiskyjack online. I like that bird. Demeanor aside, it’s pretty and apparently a corvid.

@lilithsaintcrow I’d pay $75 for that, I think. I’m bad at it, and it doesn’t help that I don’t typically read blurbs on the backs of books. I need to study them to learn how to do it or, preferably, hire a professional!

@lilithsaintcrow I’m considering giving it a shot. Moved from Scrivener to Ulysses a little over a year ago, but this update makes me want to revisit that decision.

@eilatan @eskay8 yes, she certainly doesn’t tread the same ground over and over. One of my favorite writers.

@eilatan @eskay8 yes it’s amazing. I was lucky enough to get an ARC of it. Of course, I love all of Cashore’s books, but Jane, Unlimited is simply wonderful.

@phildini almost done with a collection of scary stories for children. Two more to go!

I heard an interview with Lord Jeffrey Archer about a 100 word story challenge. Complete stories with beginning, middle, and end. Thinking of running one at Mythic Scribes in December, with Amazon gift card as a prize. What do you all think of trying to condense a complete story into 100 words?

@Annalee @eskay8 those are all great. I bought a fairly inexpensive Lamy recently and have some lovely violet ink for it.
