Have now reached chapter 13

In the below?

I was wrong. First of all, I've worked out that it's not a book. It's a character spec and storyboard for an RPG.

Secondly, my comparison with Boney M was a terrible injustice to one of the most notable jangly-pop-reggae collectives of the last century. They rhymed better, and had fewer annoying hobbies.

Finally, in a last-ditch attempt to lift the cloud of vwamphyrric gloom that was yesterday's post, and in the interests of fairness, some points of sweetness and light.:
1.The words are generally spelled correctly.
2.None of the character's names or hair colours (apart from a certain vagueness about the eyes) have changed midstream. I am very clear on the details of their physique. Man, big. Lady, small. Got it.
3.Same for the horses. Except there aren't any yet (werelynx, yes. horses, no) which is probably a relief.

Is it a coincidence that vwamphyrre & vwamhyrric remind me of the phrase phyrric victory? Shall it be a victory that you finished this er..RPG? Or a victory that there aren't any werehorses?

hi bookwormom - no coincidence. And still struggling with the er...

(had to give myself a sanity break by reading the new JR Ward, and trying to understand the why? of it all.)

Harumph. I bought the new Ward book, and was immediately suspicious because of the ridiculous dedication page. Shallow and uninformed of me, I admit. I think JMC said she's given up on this series.

Know what you mean about the dedication page, bookwormom. Also thanks for the pointer to JMC's review - very interesting.

I think I'm still processing how I felt about the latest Ward book. A lot of the aspects of the ending that people have disliked don't particularly bother me. But the interchangeable machismo of the (in Mrs. Giggles' immortal phrase) Yo-Yo Brotherhood of the Dhivine Federlines is beginning to annoy me a lot. I'm far more likely to continue with writers who take risks, even if they fall flat on their faces than ones who write to brand.
