Three days in a hotel room with nothing but the novel and iTunes for company. (iTunes library now suspiciously well-organised.) Part Three is complete; Part Four is well underway (which means I can now see lots of rewrites which will have to be on Part Three, argh). Well on track for finishing the book, including major re-working of certain bits, by the end of the year.

To commemorate my not being dead after three days in that gods-awful hotel chair, a few writing-related links:

On parasocial relationships with fictional characters. Similarly, Cory Doctorow writes that Stories Are a Fuggly Hack for making us empathise with non-existent people, before going on to those annoying artists who can get straight to the emotions without the suffering and punishment of generating narrative. (More Doctorow advice: Cheap Writing Tricks. Note the reappearance (so to speak) of his breakfast yoghurt.)

What makes bad writing bad? Oh, gods.
