Salutations friends, citizens and readers.
A standard week for me has come and gone. Watched anime, of course, and re-watched Legion with some friends. Great show from Marvel. You can never tell if anything is real, and who knows, none of it might be. Of course it isn’t real at all, as it’s a TV show, but even in the narrative you can never tell if what you are seeing is real in their world.
Have I written? I did today, but I wound up doing some other things. New ideas and other projects are keeping me occupied. I still intend to get this book done, but I think it helps to do some other things while I ponder how or what I want to say. Today’s writing I’m fairly proud of. Nothing of real import happened for the story today, but the words I chose seemed to be more…. I’m not sure how to put it besides saying poetic, or lyrical. I like the way they read and sound in my head.
That’s the strange thing about books. Reading certain things can change the way you want to say things. They make you want to try to match the kind of tone, or lyrical quality another person has used in telling a story. And I think Patrick Rothfuss has a way with words that few have achieved. Dan Simmons is another. Both have an epic feel to the words chosen in telling their stories, though they go about it in a very different way. One is musical, the other is poetic. You might mistake one for the other with certain choices of phrasing, but if you really pay attention you can tell where they are getting their inspiration.
Anyway I’ve got to get back to life now. Things need doing, and I need to find some food before I go walking again. Until next week, have a good one.
