Re: What are you reading now?

Matthew Reilly's Scarecrow...

I like the light tone of the book, not too hard on prose and such. Just a simple action-run-action-run-action novel.

Also have Lawrence Watt-Evan's The Annals of the Chosen trilogy queuing next and Peter V Brett's The Painted Man after that.

The MC does get a little boring and a bit excessively naive at times though. Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan got good reviews. Like the idea b...

Re: Music or quiet when you write?

I listen to music when I write. My house is just too hectic to be able to write in silence.

Re: Does your MS go up or down in size?

My current WIP is going up and will probably go up another notch once I'm finish with my current edit.

The first draft was around 68k but now, it's hovering around 75k.

Re: How old are you?

I just turned 25 this month.

Started writing short stories a year ago (just for the fun). Started writing (or tried to be serious in writing) 2 years ago when I drafted my first manuscript, and 2 years later, I am still drafting my first manuscript (college study takes over the urge to write).
