And it rained!
(that just means humidity later on, but I am not thinking about that now. lalalalalalala, I can't hear you, Inner Voice.)
I started reading Ghost Ship (Sharon Lee and Steve Miller) yesterday.
.. and finish about 5:30 this morning. Sleep? Who needs sleep.
It was, as is to be expected, a fun ride with interesting character interactions - pretty much all the ones I wanted, plus a few I didn't know I would want. The end was satisfying, tying up old threads, but having added a few so a reader knows there's more good stuff to come.
It's an indication that I enjoy the writing as much as the story, that I don't mind that it's not 'done' yet. Some authors I have quit reading because they never seem to satisfy my curiosity about the things they leave mysterious between books, so I lose interest. Others can leave things mysterious from page one of book one and I don't even notice, because the writing is so entertaining.
