Well, my wife finished up the Harry Potter book last week, so I am finally able to read it. I’m about 100 pages in and it has been excellent so far. I actually haven’t read all the books, but read the first and saw the movies. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to follow the story, but I’ve been sucked in. My wife tells me that things only get more stressful with the story. We shall see.
The only bad part is that I am only to read for about a half hour each night, with helping take care of my daughter (which is a ton of fun lately, reading books, making her stuffed animals chase her, etc.), blogging, and occasional fiction writing taking the rest of my time.
I’ve even avoided most of the spoilers thus far, which is amazing. Let’s just hope I can keep it that way.
I started a short story, in the fantasy genre, last Friday. I think it will turn out to be a nice little tale. I’m aiming for around 1000 words. I may even try to submit it places. If so, I might wait to post it here and instead ask for some beta readers. I have to finish it first, of course.
