Three good things.
1. Welcome to Temptation rolls along quite well. Sometimes literally. I never thought sex or pool scenes would be so character developing. I think the most memorable explicit sex scene until now that I’ve read was from Snow Crash ten years ago—memorable in its awfulness. The difference between that and Crusie’s writing is rather like night and day.
2. Soon the first reviews of Puella Magi Madoka Magica from Mark Watches will show up (on Thursday). Anticipation!
3. I wrote over 1500 words last night. Won’t do it again today, need some time to rethink this second part, which I’ve been fighting to get right. It’s radically changed from iteration to iteration, and suddenly I realized that Kinaktak had been in the wrong place in her character arc to meet Psann. Funny, isn’t it. Ah, me, why must I fail basic character psychology?
