Things I was supposed to do today: get up early, work out, write like the wind.
Things I accomplished today so far: I made a cup of tea.
RUBY FEVER is going into proofread, and I need to handle that too, but I do not have the energy. I think all of my stress decided to finally mature and settle onto me like a blanket. I was trying to work on the next installment of the Innkeeper yesterday, and I saw a fish in a funny video on Facebook, which I needed to identify. Usually this takes me about 15 minutes. An hour later I still had no idea what the fish was. I finally found it, but I am clearly dragging.
So today I will bring you a quiz.
For those of you who like to read fantasy, how do you like your names? Sometimes weird long names are the point, like in The Goblin Emperor, where names are used to a great effect to add to confusion and the sense of being overwhelmed. Sometimes the short names like the Gaw and Nam are used to demonstrate a simpler culture like in the Quest of Fire that is meant to portray prehistoric humanity. Sometimes the names are the result of extensive linguistic research, like Tokien’s Isildur or Faramir.
What’s your preference as a reader? Multiple answers are allowed.
