ROW80 Week 9: Reading

(other participants)

I was on holiday this week.

As usual, my plans to get lots of writing done didn’t pan out: I only wrote on five days, and only one of those sessions was work on my short story.

However, this was a good week for taking in other media. I watched Faust (the opera), and read Sheepfarmer’s Daughter, by Elizabeth Moon (the first book of The Deed of Paksenarrion).

Elizabeth Moon’s descriptions are very detailed, without feeling at all wordy. I’m half-considering re-reading the book to try and understand how she achieves it.

Good luck and happy writing!

    It’s always enlightening to go back and reread books you have loved in order to examine the craft of them, but it can also be difficult to stay focused on that task with the wonderful story trying to pull you under :)

    Best for the coming week!
