Kinokuniya BookWeb, an online bookstore aimed at the Chinese and Japanese market, has my book for sale. I’m listed between Laurell K. Hamilton’s ‘Circus of the Damned’ and Nina Bang’s ‘Night Bites’. Which is nice, because those titles reflect the state of my writing at the moment. I’ve been trying to take to heart an essay by Annie Dillard, which slithyove pointed out on his journal.
Write as if you were dying. At the same time, assume you write for an audience consisting solely of terminal patients. That is, after all, the case. What would you begin writing if you knew you would die soon? What could you say to a dying person that would not enrage by its triviality?
Seems like excellent advice.
Then there’s Shannon and Boone. Personally, I found the look on Boone’s face at the end to be chilling. Shannon better watch her back.
And one more thing: WHY ISN’T ANYONE LOOKING FOR CLAIRE? Dom!Charlie! mentions her once and in the same sentence laughs at something Jack says. WTF? I’m so disappointed in the lack of concern.
