This post is years overdue. I started reading A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) in 2005. This should have been my first blog post. Here are my long held theories, which may end up being spoilers for you. You’ve been warned.

Life is good in general.

  • Work is good.
  • No love life to speak of but I have some awesome crushes and that’s all I can handle right now.
  • I’m catching up on Castle (Hi Nathan! I’ve missed you.)
  • I have great friends.
  • I’m excited for E-Fabulous who is starting her career change. So proud!

I’m looking forward to:

  • My trip to IL for cousin Jennifer’s wedding.
  • My trip to IL for the family reunion (wish me luck, I’m still working this one out).
  • The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner! (or Midnight Sun, whichever comes out first. LOL)
  • The Eclipse movie (leg hitch and tent scene here we come!)
  • The next Sookie Stackhouse book.
  • True Blood!
  • The next A Song of Ice and Fire book (please GRRM?!?)
  • Make It Monday (even those E-Fabulous and I had dinner last night, sorta, and will have dinner again tonight).

This is good news. Isn’t that feeling of accomplishment wonderful? I hope to feel some of that in regard to my own book soon.

I almost hate to say anything here, for fear of jinxing it… but for what it’s worth, the last six weeks or so have been the most productive period I’ve had on A DANCE WITH DRAGONS in… well… a year at least, maybe several. In the last three days I’ve completed three new chapters. Not from scratch, mind you, these were all chapters that had been partially written, and in some cases rewritten, for months if not years. But they’re finally done, and I’ve just reread them, and I’m almost convinced that they’re Not Crap.

We’ll see how I feel tomorrow.

I can’t tell you how thrilled I was to hear Peter Dinklage was cast as Tyrion Lannister in HBO’s adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire. He’s a tremendous actor. Tyrion needs a strong actor like Peter Dinklage. Outstanding! I can’t wait to hear more.

 

Does anyone else think that Skandar Keynes would make a good Jon Snow? I haven’t given much thought to casting until just now, and he just popped right into my head.
