And no, it's not for a class that I'm doing this reading. On top of being for pure enjoyment, I'm also doing some research of sorts into mythologies. Presently, I'm focusing in on Celtic mythology, and right after that is Norse. Next, presumably, as long as I don't get sidetracked, is American Indian stories and Hindu. Then I'll move onto everything else. Why? Well, I intend very much to make use of these various mythologies in my writing--both my writing here on the internet, and in novels I wish to publish. And if something crops up with the Fantasy Kitchen Sink, do not
be surprised at all
. Otherwise, it's just because mythology and religion are such huge interests for me, and I love expanding my knowledge of things.
If I'm not seen around this account much, I'm working on my novels. I'll still work on Interlocked Lives, but at the moment, I really need to get back to what will hopefully bring me something of an income. And no, that doesn't mean Interlocked Lives isn't any less serious of a series than before. I take all of these worlds very seriously. *insert comically serious expression*
Basically, this is just an update to say that I'm on break again, but that I'm still going to be pretty busy. Then there's the fact that several games lie in wait for me, as well as several movies I need to watch--some that I bought, and some that Charles lent me. Yes, I really do have a long summer ahead of me.
Also, if you like interesting things with angels, I'd suggest you read Embrace by Jessica Shirvington. It's really interesting, actually. I intend to read the rest of that series after I finish with The Infernal Devices, and later I'll get into The Mortal Devices (hello, City of Bones--). And then, of course, there's another
series that has a little of my interest--if only a little. It starts with a book called 'Cinder', and the entire thing is supposed to have some futuristic/technological spin on like fairytales like Cinderella (obviously
) and Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel and Snow White (I think it's these four at the moment--I think). I'm mostly only interested because of the obvious technology thing, and the fact that Cress who is trapped up in some satellite is a hacker. Unfortunately, Cress' story is book three. Although Cinder also appears to be a cyborg/mechanic, so... At least there's that. And Wolf is a streetfighter, if I remember right?
Ah, busy me. See you later~
