I'm writing a story that I think has got real traction. The MC is a princess with epilepsy whose sister is assassinated by Fae, who live in an adjoining realm and are the sole suppliers of Fae Dust - a substance greatly in demand in the human world. I think it technically is Contemporary Fantasy. I'm really excited about it!
I don't read enough at all, which is a huge shame and something I'd like to correct. Yesterday I took Ultraviolet by rj_anderson out of the school library, and I finished it in a day. A really great novel! I thought the descriptions were incredibly vivid - it made synesthesia easy to understand and 'visualise' (for lack of a better term) - and if you ignore the sequel, the ending is wonderfully ambiguous. Highly recommended!
I'm off school today with a fever and sore throat. Feel like craaaaaaaaaaaaaap.
