What I’m Doing… More on “Daughter of Blood, The Wall of Night Book Three”
Back to properly “bookish” ( ) posts today—and I’m very pleased to say that the weather has improved since I posted on this same topic on Wednesday, here. Hail, sleet and cold has given way to bright sunshine, although the wind was still more than a little chilly when I snuck out for my consitutional yesterday.
(Are any of you “…on Anything, Really” readers Deadwood fans? If yes, then you may “get it” when I say that the constitutional, on a day of sunshine but cold wind, doesn’t get beyond a little “perambulation.” )
But another reason for just sneaking out and quite quickly back was that you may recall that I also talked of “pieces of the puzzle … finally … clicking together” on Wednesday, when I posted about the writing of Daughter of Blood, The Wall of Night Book Three. Those clicks were coming thick and fast yesterday, and when that happens you definitely want to stay with the roll!
Of course, I can’t tell you what’s actually happening—because that would mean “warding sign: spoilers!“—except that there was action, and backstory, and the characters-de-jour were Malian and Raven… Most of the last few weeks have been Kalan, but this week I returned to a Malian sequence.
Hmmm, I’m thinking that I need to get some sort of “proper” Daughter of Blood “icon” (or “avatar”?) for the site so that every time I talk about the book from now on I can have a visual to go with… Waddya reckon, sound like a plan to you?
