So I splurged on The Neverending Story the other day, adding to my somewhat modest and limited Blu-ray collection, and we finally had a go of it last night. And you know something? It's still a very enjoyable little film. Even our kid got a kick out of watching Falcore when he chased those bullies into that dumpster in the alley. He made us replay that scene about four times, I think. The laughter was priceless, as is this movie.
Anyway, that's not what this post is about . . .
It's about this place inching towards 100 followers! How fantastic is that? To show my appreciation (when the time comes), I will hold a rather generous Signed Book giveaway. Make haste. Go and spread the word!
A great and giant THANK YOU to all who have followed me so far. It means a lot more than free pizza.
Before our weekly update, say hello to The Laire's latest, all signing in from across international waters:
Gary Philip Pennick - an incredible advocate on mental health issues with an intriguing blog that was once featured on a BBC radio station. Welcome, Gary!
Amie Kaufman - an aspiring middle grade writer from the land down under, with a blog that does not beat around the bush. Give her place a swift click!
Madeleine - an aspiring author and recipient of the coveted Star Blogger award, heralding from the United Kingdom. She has a bright future ahead of her!
Ellie Garratt - an aspiring author of speculative fiction who is not afraid to put on a space suit as she reaches for the stars with her writing and her active blog!
Welcome and thank you for your generous followship.
Update - about that chapter 18 business? It's done--and I mean 6k done. It's a real doozy, but we're moving on now. Chapter 19 is mapped out and ready to draft as soon as this post is up, but I should tell you that a benchmark has been reached. 200 pages (I write my drafts in an unusual format, so in double-spaced terms, it's more than that). There are about 27k more words to go (the makings of another six chapters), the final quarter of this WiP. Six weeks before my deadline--six chapters to go. Cakewalk, my friends.
For the sake of "tension," click back Thursday.
I'm David, and who wouldn't want a Luck Dragon?
