Friday Five

This was a pretty awesome week. Five reasons why:

1. I got to meet one of my LJ friends and fellow Debs, rj_anderson! We had a very yummy lunch at an Indian place, browsed a bookstore, and had much interesting conversation about books and writing and the like.

2. At said bookstore, I found four books I'd been meaning to get--all on sale! Can't argue with that.

3. I finished outlining my new WIP, and am happy enough with it that I feel confident saying it is my next WIP. :D It also has the honor of being the only book idea I've gotten that started with a title: LOKI'S BOY. Now I know what I'm writing at the retreat (only one week away!).

4. The book I've been reading this week is turning out to be quite good--THROUGH WOLF'S EYES by Jane Lindskold. I don't often enjoy adult high fantasy these days so I'm really glad I happened to pick this up.

5. I stumbled upon the perfect answer to my wording quandary (see previous entry) while doing my LOKI'S BOY research. Apparently, if you were a Norseman and you wanted to swear something particularly solemnly, you took a ring-oath. I still think there was another (more general) word that I still haven't figured out, but I'm quite happy to go with the historical one. :)

I was thinking of you just now. Realized we have book 1 and book 3 in an awesome fantasy series but not book 2! GASP! "Seeker" by William Nicholson is the first book and I LOVE it. "Halfway Hero" reminded me of it somewhat.

I am in writing frenzy right now (school starts back on 8/25 so I am savoring my respite). But I will get back to Lucy soon, I promise!

No worries about PL--it looks like it's going to be a few months before we can sub it anyway. :) Enjoy your writing time!

How fun to meet real writers in person! You guys are both in Ontario, right?

Your new book sounds awesome....

Yep, RJ lives in Stratford, but she was in Guelph for the week so it wasn't too far for her to stop by. :) I can't wait until BEA when I get to meet a whole bunch of Debs! (Are you planning on being there?)
