Day 5 of Nanowrimo

5 Nov

It turns out the male character is not as confident as he pretends to be (I think I’m slightly influenced by Howl’s character from the Castle series Diana Wynne Jones, especially since I’m currently rereading the series), the female has more confidence and conviction than she appeared to have at the beginning (but she was also quieter and more respectful, which she was disillusioned out of) and she is forced to confront and examine one of her fears – character development, YAY.

I suffer from writer envy a lot, most of the time after I emerge from being caught up in some superior story with excellent plot, detail and style. Sometimes I try to reread to analyse the amazingness, but I end up getting caught up in the story all over again, so it fails. I know I should probably do a sentence by sentence dissection (especially with the aforementioned Diana Wynne Jones, I get caught up if I read even just one paragraph), but… there are still so many more books to read and admire…  >< It feels sometimes I’m just going around Oooh-ing and Aaah-ing over everyone else’s fantastic works and there are still so many gems to be discovered out there … why is there not more time in my life?

(and my order of six books by yet another grand master of fantasy arrived yesterday. I can’t wait!)

Priorities, priorities, priorities.
