  1. Nice pic

    If I could reccommend a good book (thats related to writing)
    Dan Simmons had a new hardcover due out next month:Drood.
    It’s about the last years of Charles Dickens.
    (over 700 pages too!)

    Of course, any book will do with weather like this

      1. Drood (the novel) covers the last five years of Dicken’s life

        From what I know it’s a fictional account of the years AFTER the train accident that Dicken’s escaped from but according to the narrator of the book (his close friend Mr Collins) Dicken’s was so shaken by the event that it deeply affected the last five years

        Dicken’s as some may know, was unable to finish his last work in progress novel about a character by the name of Edwin Drood. Simmons seems to have made the fictional character of Drood an additional “live”(?) character in the book (or perhaps just a very real figment of Dicken’s imagination) (thus, the name of the book: Drood)
        It’s due out mid february
        Hope that helps
        There is a 14 page excerpt in the last pages of the new paperback book The Terror, also by Simmons which gives a very good feel for how the book will read.
        You might want to check it out since it’s (also) a fictional account of true history in which two ships became stuck in the arctic ice back in the 1850’s and the troubles they encountered
        My point?
        Dickens and his friend Mr Collins wrote a play (really!) about the event
        So you might say that The Terror is a kind of prequel to Drood.

  2. It’s always good when the Writer Lady scribbles 🙂 LOVE that photo – it makes me feel better about getting more snow tonight!

    BTW, just read The Perks of Being a Wallflower and absolutely LOVED it! I’m assuming you’ve read it – what do you think of it?

  3. My husband doesn’t understand the joy of catching a snowflake on your tongue. Thanks for doing “The Lucy” for me. (As in Lucy from “The Peanuts”).

    Happy New Year to you and BH.

  4. New to LJ and just completed my first novel

    I’d be lying if I said I’ve read your books – I’m sorry! I actually don’t have much time to read. I’m contacting you because I’ve just become a member of LJ and Also have just completed my first novel. To many people reading and writing may come easily, but for me, I’ve always struggled with it. So this feels like a HUGE accomplishment to finish an entire book. (My motivation was a great story to tell that just wouldn’t get out of my head-that and my mom and sister encouragind me) There were nights it took me an hour to come up with one word and others not even one. But now I’ve finished writing and have 360 pages of tough editing ahead of me-any words of advice for the novice writer?
