First of all, I’m not sure this whole blog thing is working out. At least THIS whole blog thing is working out. Fractal Sky seemed like such a cool name, how could I pass it up. But the reality seems to be slightly less awesome than the fantasy. Nothing I wrote was remotely fractal or sky-related, not even in a metaphorical sense, not even if you tortured those metaphors until they confessed their plots to overthrow the government.
So I started adding pictures of the sky. Which are quite nice, don’t get me wrong. I very well might continue doing that. But is that really what this blog is all about? Is that why you accidentally hit that link on someone else’s blog when you were trying to find funny pictures of cats? I don’t think so.
As a result, I will be attempting the rebranding. I know, everyone says it’s a mistake, but given that I haven’t actually really branded yet, I’m thinking this one will be easier.
On another note, I think I’ll be adding the nominees for the Nebula Awards to my reading list. Thanks to Jessica for the referral.
The Nebula’s have two advantages. One, I have already read one of them. Two, all but one of the novels is available in Kindle format, which has become something of a vital necessity for me these days. I’m currently reading Lavinia, by Ursula K. LeGuin, and when I am done, I will be out of BFSA nominees in that format. I haven’t quite decided how to proceed there, but that’s a rant for another day.
I will update you on my rebranding soon.
