FF: Writing Like Crazy

My reportable reading really dropped this week because I’ve been obsessively writing and, when I’m not, a lot of what I’m reading is shorter stuff for research purposes.

Kel & Kwahe’e Curl Up With a Good Book

For those of you just discovering this feature, the Friday Fragments lists what I’ve read over the past week.  Most of the time I don’t include details of either short fiction (unless part of a book-length collection) or magazine articles.

The Fragments are not meant to be a recommendation list.  If you’re interested in a not-at-all-inclusive recommendation list, you can look on my website under Neat Stuff.

Once again, this is not a book review column.  It’s just a list with, maybe, a bit of description or a few opinions tossed in.

Recently Completed:

Tarzan by Edgar Rice Burroughs.  Audiobook.  Much enjoyed.

A Long Way from Chicago by Richard Peck.  Eight short stories connect by the “frame” that they are each annual summer visits by Joey and his sister, Mary Alice, to their eccentric (to understate the case) grandmother.  First story is set in 1929, with good historical detailing.  I really liked.

In Progress:

The Return of Tarzan by Edgar Rice Burroughs.  Audiobook.  After a sojourn in what passes for civilization, Tarzan is back in the jungle, but realizing he has changed.

Wolf Captured by Jane Lindskold.  The backwards series reading experience continues, albeit slowly.

Also:

As I said, lot of research reading, but scattered enough it’s impossible to remember all of it!

    Well dear Jane I have my Autism however I still had no trouble memorizing science facts in school or memorize at least enough history to pass the tests. I was quite unlikely to get Fs at school.

    And currently when it’s related to something I consider a favorite, I have no trouble memorizing this collection either. The only things I remember for a short time and then have to re-read are when it’s my own short made up fiction page that feel like a personal story, kind of like why the author of Eragon even wrote his dragon series.
