Still Alive

I haven't died. I love Clash of Kings so far. But I have finals until the second week of May, and I just have no time to do anything outside of studying. After finals, I will try to do a lot of reading and blogging. Then I have to prep for the bar exam (ewww) in late July. Terrible, I know. I'm sorry. But from what my friends tell me, the HBO show isn't out until 2011 and Martin isn't done with Dance yet. So anyone that reads this series is used to waiting. I hope you all understand! I shall return in a few weeks. See you then.

Update: No new entries until August at the earliest, possibly even mid August, depending on how long it takes me to recover from the massive hangover I'll have after finishing the bar exam.

  2. Does this mean we should share all our favorite lawyer jokes with you?

    Here's mine:
    "How many lawyers does it take to roof a house?

    Three and a half, but you have to slice 'em real thin."

  7. Screw you pessimists! Y'all know theres a stout white-bearded man somewhere who's still being creative... As it will be, both Jason (that's the name of the black brother writing this blog I suppose) and GRRM will finish their work simultaneously, you'd bet...!

  10. "Screw you pessimists! Y'all know theres a stout white-bearded man somewhere who's still being creative"

    Game of Thrones - 284,000 words, started in 1991, stopped in 1992, resumed in 1995, published in August 1996
    Clash of Kings - 326,000 words, November 1998
    Storm of Swords - 404,000 words, August 2000

    = 1.01 million words in seven years

    Feast for Crows - 300,000 words, October 2005
    Dance with Dragons - Supposedle mostly written when FfC published, and the book was only split into two as it was too much for one. That was five years ago

    = 300,000 words in ten years

    Pessimists?

  19. Very encouraging Flavius. I generally have more confidence in my tailors once they've passed the Bar exam.
