Let's see. I set myself a goal of 10k this month and got a respectable 13,285 written. 8k of that was on the crossover, 1.5k on the original novel, 3k on the Bellamy companion story to Walkabout, and 800 words on the Abby/Kane thing that I'm now writing for the100rarepairs
. Overall I'm happy with things since I've gotten my writing groove back.Reading
I read Ancillary Sword
by Ann Leckie, and loved it. Still need to write a proper review, but basically I love the worldbuilding, I love that Breq tries to do everything right, I love the way the universe treats AI, and I'm just having fun with it.
I technically finished Leviathan Wakes
by James Corey on August 1, but I'm going to add it here anyway. I really enjoyed it. ignipes recced it to me here
, and it's another solid sci-fi story that really sold me on the worldbuilding. It's set in a future where we've colonized the solar system but don't have interstellar capability and I just want to roll around in it. Plus a very solid story that kept me up reading far later than I should have been up on a number of nights. I need to write a proper review of it too at some point.
I rewatched Sense8
I finished season 1 and I'm halfway through season 2 of Black Sails
, though I haven't done episode reactions to season 2 yet.
Friends I watch tv with and I finished season 2 of Orphan Black finally and it was OMG amazing. That show is so good.Other Fannish Stuff
Still doing a weekly roundup of fannish stuff at the100 Recced a Farscape/Haven crossover
Recced The 100 fics here
Does obsessing over Pluto count as fannishness? Because I did a lot of that too.
