martinlivings: (Genius)
Some months back, I bid for and got myself a copy of [livejournal.com profile] paulhaines's collection from Prime Books, Doorways for the Dispossessed, during the amazing Art That Scares You online auction. It was really the main thing I wanted, so I was chuffed as hell to have gotten it. And, ever since, it's sat on my to-read pile gathering dust.

Until now.

    Hmm... don't much like my chances of finishing this in the next three days! Ah well, I gave it my best!

I almost forgot about that. I've neglected my MaShoReMo duties for the last few days, due to being inspired to write. I'll get back to it this weekend. So the tally still stands at:

I zoomed through this, partially thanks to having read one of the stories before, and having written another of them. ;)

Okay, onto issue 2...

And that concludes my New Ceres reading. Happy now, [livejournal.com profile] girliejones? ;)
martinlivings: (Gotta Do)
Okay, so, I've finally gotten around to reading this. I've had it for, ooh, when did it come out? Last year? Surely not 2006? If it is, I'm horribly remiss.

Anyway, better late than never, huh?

Now onto issue 2!

MaShoReMo

martinlivings: (Gotta Do)
So, NaNoWriMo is over and done. And all of a sudden, I find myself with not a lot to do. I don't want to write for a bit, as the last few weeks has taken it out of me. I need to recover.

And, more than that, I need to read. I was so busy outputting, I didn't have time for input.

So, I hereby declare December 2008 to be MaShoReMo, or Martin's Short Story Reading Month. It's a chance to catch up on all the books and magazines I have lying around. A pathetic effort, compared to those insane folks over at [livejournal.com profile] lastshortstory, of course, but I'm not as big a reader as they are, obviously. And how many of the wrote a novel last month? Well, one that I know of. But that's not the point.

So, the books and mags I intend to read, along with their story counts, are:

Voices: 18
Canterbury 2100: 18
Doorways for the Dispossessed: 20
Midnight Echo: 16
New Ceres, issues 1 and 2: 6

That makes a total of 78 stories to read this month. Two or three a day will do it nicely. That shouldn't be too hard... surely?

Sometimes it's easier to write than to read, trust me. ;)
