Cavern of Inane Natter / Report from the navel: gazing is 86% complete...

It has been many a moon since I have felt the slightest glimmering of creativity and I've been ok with that. Sometimes it's nice to get lost in the ebb and flow of the normal course of life. Eventually, though, the quiet call of the Citadel becomes a loud rushing sound that can no longer be ignored.

So, here I am, stepping back in through the open door, ready to add my voice to the call. And thus it continues.

Asha half drew her Glock at the sound of shattering glass, the black blur well out of handgun range. "I saw that thing earlier near the wall!" She exclaimed, moving over to the ladder and quickly sliding down by holding the side rungs, a burst of adrenaline quelling the ache of her leg. Upon hitting the ground she moved towards the van house at a slightly less than brisk pace, gritting her teeth against the occasional painful twinge of her injury.

Qwell's home was an array of old vans he had pushed together and patched up with wood.  Moldy seats were removed and replaced with wooden benches and the like and formed a small warren of structures.

He chose those with still good windshields and reasonably free of dents.

Then one window shattered violently, and moments later, other windows were suddenly painted red.

Asha and Anya could hear the sound of the shattered windshield from their high vantage point, but only barely.  A black blur could be seen leaving the small cluster of vehicles, heading toward some thick brush.

Anya rushed to grab her rifle, but the target was no longer visible when she had the scope up.

You can find links here to actual texts of many (all?) of his works. Great stuff!

And some rules from Kurt Vonnegut, by way of brainpickings.

Not sure I agree with #8, To Hell with suspense.  I like surprises.

Tomes and Illusions / Re: What books do you read?

The Hobbit. I simply love Tolkien's works. I'll only read a book more than once if I've really enjoyed it. As with films, each time I read his books, something else jumps out at me that I didn't notice, or pay particular attention to the first, second and third time around.  :read:

I've also just been introduced to the Wild Card's series edited by George Martin (yep, that one), I read the collection titled 'Inside Straight'. Now I just need to get my hands on the first book, which seems illusive and which the library staff have mislabeled as Inside Straight  :huh:

Finally, I've also managed to read the Guns of Navarone by Alistair Maclean. After the third attempt. For whatever reason I wasn't able to get into it the first two times, but I'm glad I persevered.
