I really need to work on multi-tasking my imagination. I can only write one story at a time, I can only write in one fandom at a time, and, as I'm realising only too sharply at the moment, when writing fanfic in one fandom, I can barely read (or watch) other fictional works that aren't in that fandom. I definitely want to write fanfic again, but not at this cost. I need to find some way to write alongside wide-ranging reading.
But, anyway, while talking about books, I'll link to the post I've just made on my other LJ, asking for book recs to suit a specific need, since the more people read it, the more lovely books I'll get to read. I will pay for it with a recommendation of my own, by way of a ridiculously overlong but spoiler-free review of the Inda series by Sherwood Smith.
