The three Rs for Feb. 18

threeRs

This is supposed to be a writer’s blog, which means I have to blog about writer-y stuff. So here’s my version of the three Rs: (W)riting, Reading, and a little bit of Randomness.

(W)riting

Pretty much everyone knows about this one already, but here it is anyway: The Writing Excuses podcast. Brandon Sanderson and other authors discuss the writing biz in bite-size 15-minute episodes. Even though he’s Mr. Number One Bestseller these days, I don’t like Sanderson all that much, but I must cave in admit he offers some good advice on occasion, such as when he says to a struggling unpublished author, “A book deal doesn’t make you a better writer. Only you can do that.” (paraphrased)

 Reading

Catherynne Valente’s Palimpsest is like no other book you’ve ever read. The story is tough to describe. Four strangers from different parts of the globe find their way to a mysterious magical city, and then go to great lengths (heh) to find their way back. It’s bewilderingly strange and at times incredibly sad, but Valente’s voice and the weird-yet-beautiful imagery will keep you reading late into the night.
