Kingkiller & Holly Lolly

Mike Grist Uncategorized Leave a Comment

I just finished book 2 of the Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss- proper review forthcoming- and now I need something similar to read.

All I want is more Kvothe! There is none though, the third book in the trilogy has been expected for at least 4 years, and still no sign of it coming.

What is Rothfuss playing at? Whatever. But, three cheers for reading!!

Cerulean’s story is at 35,000 words- about a third through. Happily I figured out the bit that seemed dull- worth a post on the craft of writing in itself I think- and will crush two slow chapters into one fast one, saving words and momentum.
