Neo Illion

I hope that winning “Neo Illion” from Kelly doesn’t mean that I have to write the next Tom Lord novel, because I don’t think I can do it. It does mean, however, that I have temporarily broken my losing streak since March when I won “New Zealand”.

At present, I am reading Melusine, a 371-page Middle English prose romance/history, and I am baffled as to why it has not been given greater importance. When I finish reading it, I expect to find myself going to conferences and being the only person to have read it in its entirety, if at all. It may or may not be giving me ideas for a future NaNoWriMo novel, but that is the most I shall say on the subject.

The story I want to be writing isn’t finished percolating, and the one I wasn’t expecting to write for while is sending the occasional scene. I am collecting both stories bit by bit, scene by scene, shuffled and out of order. It is not a process I particularly enjoy, but I guess as long as the stories get written somehow…

    Nope, you do have to write the next Tom Lord novel. Clearly that’s why your other stories need more simmering: they know you have the last four chapters of WHATSIT to get cracking on.

    You both have to finish WHATSIT so I can read it 😉 And I don’t even know what it is…
    Good job on winning a game Chera–you are a braver soul than I!
