We are in the path of a serious ice storm, so I must get home while I can. I also have about ten chapters to edit now, thanks to my super reader coming through with eight today alone. Thanks for making me feel further behind that I already am. On top of this, I have major work going on at the day job that is draining me of everything but frustration.
That said, congrats to Neil Gaiman, winner of this year’s Newberry Medal for The Graveyard Book. I’ve read a couple of Gaiman’s works and he is one of the best out there, so the award is justly given. I keep trying to write like him, but it doesn’t seem to be working that well. Maybe I can shoot for somebody a little less talented and work my way up from there.
