I've been reading all sorts of great things online through the Fantasy Magazine website (www.darkfantasy.org). Discovering this site and reading all of the new stories has been as exciting for me as discovering Asimov's was a few years ago. It's great to have access to all of this fresh material (and FREE! which is cool :0) ) I really enjoyed Becca De La Rosa's stories, and also Willow Fagan's. The discussion boards have provided hours of entertainment as well.
Some days it's good to be a geek :0D
I've been plotting out my book and I'm up to 15 pages of straight up plot, which is exciting. I'm chomping at the bit to get WRITING but I want to at least start with clear framework. I know that the story will likely mutate (as it already has many, many times) but at least this way I have a direction. I think that I will still be able to salvage the scenes I already wrote. I hope so. That's like 10.000 words :0P I've been tossing around some short story ideas too, so overall I'm pleased with the writing scene lately.
It's been so awesome to have so much fresh reading material available...I was getting stuck in a fantasy rut and it was very frustrating because that's pretty much all I read. Between Asimov's and Fantasy I think I will pull through though :0)
