Can't do nothing but sit indoors and write. What a shame
I'm more than halfway through The Sunless Countries, and things are heating up. The weather in Toronto's been cooperating by cooling things down-- it was -18 last night, with a wind chill in the -30s--so I have no excuses not to work on the book.
It all puts me in the mood to write about the nations of permanent darkness that hide in Virga's 'winter' zones. They're mostly unknown by people who live in the lit countries, as are the vast reaches of blackness that surround the artificial suns. It's a realm where 'here be dragons' could in fact be true--and in fact. . ., well, I'm not about to spoil it by revealing more.
But it's glorious fun; there remains an unlimited amount of exploration to be done in Virga. This book will add as much cool stuff as all the previous books combined.
