WWW Wednesdays - July 25, 2012 Edition

Here's the answers to this week meme's from Should Be Reading's blog. Feel free to leave your comments with the answers to these questions and be sure to check out their blog as well for other's answers.

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions in the comment section or in your own blog then link it from the comments.

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

Instead of breaking these down into sections as I normally do, it will be pretty obvious where I'm going.  Currently I'm re-reading The Belgariad Series

I am currently on the Castle of Wizardry (Book 4).  I've read these books before, back around 1998 or 1999 and wanted to re-read them.  So obviously, I'm going to be moving on to the next book in the series.

If you're looking for great fantasy writing with great characters that are endearing and even funny at times, check these books out, and really all of the books by David and Leigh Eddings.

Has it really been 2 months since I last posted?

I have to say, I'm using the "Road to Hell is paved with good intentions" de-motivational poster more often than expected.  Because really, I do have good intentions, but a lot of things get in my way at times.  It also appears I have several articles in draft format that didn't post the days/weeks I wanted them to post.  Oops. Must rectify that error in the future.

All of that being said, since May a number of things have happened:

  • My son turned 13
  • Summer basketball started which created havoc with night time schedules
  • Had an event to work at (NW Pinball and Gameroom)
  • Had a lot of writing related deadlines at my day job
  • Freelance jobs coming in 
  • As well as work I do for Twin Galaxies
  • and playing some video games for review..which I need to still write the reviews for...go figure.
It took up a lot of time, so while I was reading, I wasn't always writing reviews like I would have liked to been doing.  Writing for a living is a curse - it often kills the creative writing I'd much rather be doing.

Unlike the last post, I'm not going to make any well intention-ed posts of what I plan to do later this week - it's been proven that the minute I declare my plans, the world will conspire against me to destroy them.  So what I will say, instead, is that I will attempt to do better and may open this blog up to other things besides book reviews/book related commentary.  And that may start tonight with a rebuttal to a sensitive topic in my world.

But hey, gotta start somewhere and here might as well be it.  

TLDR Version: I suck at writing blogs, I admit to this. I'm trying to improve.  Honest.
