The Wayward Herald: Awaiting the End of NaNoWriMo

The Wayward Herald remains convinced that the number of interesting blog posts on which to comment decreases substantially during National Novel Writing Month. Fortunately, that will soon end, and that is one thing for which the Wayward Herald is thankful this week.

Dante looks back on Purgatory at the end of NaNoWriMo.
The Wayward Herald is also thankful for the folks at Sci-Fi Bloggers, who have not only guest-posted on Fresh-scraped Vellum, but continue to publish interesting content during NaNoWriMo! This week, they published a post on the Top 5 Game of Thrones Characters (from the HBO series). For me, it’s a close call between Tyrion Lannister and Arya Stark, but in the end, and by a hair, I’m going with Arya! (I’d make the same call for A Clash of Kings, by the way.)

Sci-Fi Bloggers also posted a review of The Amazing Spiderman, which was released on DVD this month. I thought it was absurd that the Spiderman franchise was being rebooted just five years after the Tobey Maguire series ended. And while that remains absurd, I pretty much share the view of Sci-Fi Bloggers when it comes to this film.

Also, author Dean Wesley Smith published an article titled The New World of Publishing: Some Perspective on 2012, about changes in the publishing industry over the past year. It’s a must-read for writers.

Finally, Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist featured a teaser for Season 3 of Game of Thrones. I can hardly wait!

Until next week, good tidings and good day!
