WHAT I’M CURRENTLY READING: Princeps’ Fury, Jim Butcher

***

So I’m working on the fifth chapter of RAGE, and it’s very slow-going. More like a slow boil than full-blown rage.

This is one of those stories that it’s not enough to get a fast draft down and then return to it in a revision and polish to get it right; I have to get it as close to right as possible the first time. Which is a little daunting (especially with the events of chapter five; oy, I’m torn between wanting to tell my protagonist NOOOOOOOOOOO and wanting to tell my protagonist FINE THEN JUST DO IT ALREADY).

I’ve got Nirvana playing on iTunes (my iPod died, alas!), I’m about to get some tea. I have a Cinnabon waiting for me after I do a good job today.

Okay, chapter 5. In the immortal words of the Sick Puppies: One of us is going down.
