Stuff and Things

Thanks to everyone who has read the ending to my vampire story. If you have any thoughts on what works/what doesn’t work or anything like that, please let me know. I’m actually going to attempt to sell this one somewhere, so any feedback is appreciated. Also, I’m going to be disabling the posts containing the story at the end of the month, because publications don’t really want stories they buy to be out there on the Internet for free. Thanks to Chris who has already provided me with some really helpful comments.

I’m currently reading the book, The Golden Compass, and I’m really starting to enjoy it. Great characterization in that book so far. The interesting thing is that I’m reading it on my Sony Reader, which makes it the first book I’ve attempted to read from beginning to end on the device. I have to say I’ve noticed no difference in “the experience” of reading on an electronic device rather than a paper book. Once I got used to it, the story drew me in. This would’ve happened on an e-reader, in print, or drawn on a wall in crayon. One day I’ll post some more specifics about reading on the Sony Reader, but for now I will simply say I like it.

Have you all heard of Goodreads? It’s one of those social sites where you can list the books you’ve read, add reviews, etc. There are other such sites out there, but I’m most fond of Goodreads. You can check out my profile on Goodreads here.
