haha, oh right, I should probably comment here.

Hullo! I'm Yun/Ash/Asph/hey you over there. I read and (attempt to) write fantasy; to be honest, it's more like I read and worldbuild fantasy and then somewhere along the way the writing doesn't get much further than my head. (I'm working on that.) I've got about a dozen fanfic WIPs, and then about six major original WIPs. My current goal is to decrease those numbers s-sob. SOMEDAY I WILL FINISH ONE OF THESE MASSIVE SOMETHINGS.

Reading-wise! Er, when it comes to re-reading value, that'd probably be Ellen Kushner's Swordspoint, Diana Gabaldon's works, Anne McCaffrey's Pern series, most of Robin Hobb's works. Friedman's Coldfire trilogy. Michael Chabon's stuff for pure style. I do admit I've been reading a lot of trashy fantasy stuff lately though, just for the sake of something to read as I hunt down recs and take note for my next trip to the bookstore.

In recent years I've taught myself to focus on one thing, and this way I've actually been finishing novels instead of writing a dozen opening chapters/parts. So I know your multi-WIP pain.

Ooh, CS Friedman. I read her scifi novel This Alien Shore years ago, and it's one of my favourite scifi novels. I've the first Coldfire novel on my to-read pile.

Haaahahaha, yeah, the thing is I don't even have opening chapters/parts. I just have worlds/settings that I fell in love with and can't abandon. It's kind of a pain!

Oh man, huh, I didn't know she's written scifi too. [should go check it oooout] I loved her writing in Coldfire so much, so. *A*!!!

You could always write a fake travel brochure. Stories told by texts are fun.

It's probably better to ignore me. >.>

If I didn't also want to explain the workings of the Bureau, I'd be tempted to do just that. Well, I might do that as an aside anyway, given how the Bureau is like an INTERWORLDLY CROSSING POINT.

But why? >: You have shiny ideas!
