Yay, I finished writing Wulf's journal entries for Chapter 12. Then it was on to his journal entries for Chapter 13 -- the chapter where Kensin gets paddled as a punishment by the other mages! (Not only that, but the second half of the chapter involves Wulf tying Gorok to the bed with leather straps...) Unfortunately, I was too tired, and I had to go to sleep. That's what I get for staying at work late to finish up my manuscript and then going grocery shopping after that. zzz

I have to rant about some posts I saw in the rec.arts.sf.written newsgroup. Someone was in the mood for Forgotten Realms novels, so he specifically asked which were the good Forgotten Realms novels. Some people answered his question, but wouldn't you know it, there were several people whose posts pretty much said things like "Don't read that crap, read George R. R. Martin and Lord Dunsany and Jack Vance (etc.) instead." Oh, most people worded it more politely ("If you're really in the mood for gaming fiction, read so-and-so instead..."), but that's what it comes out to.

Even worse, someone asked if he was a shill for TSR! Right, right, someone asking for recommendations of books is automatically a shill, give me a break. Though of course it only applies to publishers that the rec.arts.sf.written snobs look down their noses at. If I asked for recommendations of Tor books, no one would ask if I were a shill for Tor. Argh! Snobbery against a genre is bad enough, but snobbery within the genre can be just as bad. It's pathetic when people within the genre can't accept that sometimes people just want to read something fun and don't want to be tsked tsked by "nannies" within the genre.
