#ROW80 Week 4: Less

Unlike many other ROWers (linky), I’m not starting NaNoWriMo this week. No sudden burst of effort here.

I did get 1,200 words written on Conkers, but I only wrote four days out of seven. I was still sick this week though; I should get more done now I’ve recovered.

On the bright side, I finished reading Pride and Prejudice. I’d expected it to be a good story — if not what I’d usually read — but the style of description surprised me. Unlike The Great Gatsby‘s vivid metaphors, Jane Austen names the actual emotions involved.

Admittedly, Gatsby is about a hundred years more recent, but they’re both good books; I’m sure there’s something to learn from both of them.

Good luck and happy writing!

    I think there’s a reason that classics become “classics”, Isikyus. It’s not because the stories are so wonder we have to read them or feel that our lives are incomplete without them, but because each one gives us something unique and special about a time or place or situation…

    I’m glad to hear you enjoyed the books. And that you’re making progress on Conkers. I know that’s been you project for some time now. And even if you aren’t participating in the NaNoWriMo madness, I hope that some of the energy helps stir you to get it done, when you can.

    Best writing to you!
