Status: Underwater

This week’s excuse for not blogging: my apartment flooded due to heavy rain. (“Heavy” by Berkeley standards, anyway.)
I did, however, start A Feast for Crows. Sometimes predictability is nice: you know the poor sucker in the prologue of a George R. R. Martin novel is going to die before the first chapter, so you are free to hate this character and root for the bad guys. (Martin helps out by making the POVs in the prologues progressively more annoying.) Whereas once the novel gets going, it’s not wise to get too attached to any particular character, since you never know who is going to get killed off for no apparent reason.

    I have in my writing occasionally created characters fully intending to kill them off and then finding that I liked them too much to do it!
