Janny: I have indeed seen the study pic also - would love to visit your sanctum one day!
At this point I'd risk the claws to snatch the stack. Ooh but the cat could hold it hostage cause I surely wouldn't want it shredded.
It's rather frightening to see a stack that thick. I think the most I ever wrote and printed out was an eleven page paper in high school on black holes, lol.
9 main is tapped out. The number of threads in convergence here is a Holy Cow moment....You will have no idea, because in some sense, I had no idea.
It's off the cliff into the deep waters at this stage, because some of the whopping reveals of the series are going to out in these final chapter sets.
Draft Page Count is 673, and it's gonna kite up fast, from here, because all of the painstaking, nit picky set up is in place, ready to ROCK AND ROLL!
Sounds good to me. Do you know yet Janny, how many chapters Destiny's Conflict will have?
I get to read it for Christmas 2015 I will be happy.
Now way to know till I get there.
Staring off the cliff - here comes the plunge! (heh, they have no idea what's coming)
May it be a swift plunge to a finished book. I'm really looking forward to these wondrous things that we have no idea of
I expect big things from a lot of the main characters, especially Arithon, Lysaer and Elaira.
Not having anything to do with Facebook has its drawbacks, to be sure.
I like plunges...
*Grips rail of rollercoaster and balances on balls of feet in anticipation*
I'm rereading the series (not sure hoe many times) and can't wait for this one to come out.
There are so many threads that could go so many different ways, my guesses keep changing depending on which foreshadow was the last I pointedly paid attention to :-)
I'm with Mark, yet I don't think I'm missing much on the grand scale. Face Book seems like a colossal waste of time that I could spend paddling a canoe.
Or reading WoLaS...note I didn't say RE-reading...
That is about as ham-fisted a hint as I can make.
The Facebook fan page really isn't a time sink; it just posts updates and announcements and the occasional insightful picture (or preview of art in the making) - you can view it by URL and not have to be a 'member' of FB.
The same announcements go up here, they just aren't 'adorned' with photos or extras.
So far there are no discussions or conversations there. If there were they would be driven by readers, and actually, more people would see such things in an outside forum that had a wider general readership. Dedicated forums only get seen by dedicated readers - general threads in general forums bring in new eyes.
But Facebook is trying to take over the world!!! Truly, it is the Koriani of the modern age...insidious.
Draft page 700!
I think that this would be an apt response to this news:
Just like every other big corporation.
But Facebook is trying to take over the world!!!
Thanks for the update Janny. Nice to hear 700 draft pages reached, now if only I had them in my hands to read! But those last 23 pages seemed to fly, maybe the rest will yet.
For 1000 pages do we get a glimpse of a page or two for Christmas?
I to am another who has no intentions of falling for Facebook, but I still go and grab anything on offer on the fan page. No harm in looking, I am just unlikely to ever sign up, I have enough obsessions to deal with.
Hehe, what's the word count Janny?
Assuming you have recovered from DragonCon (which one of my staff members got to go to and participated in the parade[considerably farther back than you were, Madame Tailspinner], but which I AGAIN could not attend...think I'm just a little envious???!!!), thought I'd inquire as to that 1000 page mark? ;-)
I am starting ten set - and the book had better be shorter than 1000 pages (draft) when the full count is done.
Were not the last two books bit over 1000 draft pages before polish? Something about the same or a bit longer would be nice.
Poor Janny. Here we are pestering you for speed and length of the next book. Just know we'll be grateful for anything as I for one am worried about Arithon
You'll not find me complaining if the book is more than 1000 pages in its FINAL version.
The latest book I read was 816 pages and took me 17 hours. That's 17 hours of being transported to another world, and it was wonderful. I love long stories that immerse me like that.
So bring on the 1000+ page book! As long as they are available on the Kindle, I no longer have to worry about getting a hernia from wielding these weighty blunt instruments of torture like the days of old.
Amen to that!!!
By my reckoning on this thread:-
My estimates ?! ;-)
I seem to recall a couple of times Janny has posted by surprise chapter one during my summer holidays so I will hope for next summer :-) ?
I am hoping Janny finishes the first draft a bit faster than that estimate, but you never know.
I am really hoping for another sneak peek!!!
Uh oh, awful quiet in here. Time to make some noise.
*Goes into snippet lab and readies irritants-I-mean-instruments*
I think of it as not disturbing Janny so she can write faster (hopefully!!)
Janny will shortly be appearing at Archon 38 as Toast Mistress http://archonstl.org/38/
So might be taking a break from writing for the rest of the week.
I'm with Judy!
Shhh... Be vewy vewy qwiet.
I think Auna is wabbit hunting. ::grin::
