I meant to post yesterday on the weekend's (NFL) games, but got busy writing instead, and finished a Tyrion chapter that I've been struggling with for six months. Nibbling away at that knot. We'll see if the finished chapter holds up to reread and polish today.

Snowing like hell in Santa Fe today. I feel like Jon Snow on the Wall. White everywhere I look, and still coming down.
Of course, I'm writing about Meereen, where the weather is hot and muggy, oppressive. If the snow keeps falling, I better take it as an omen, switch to a Jon chapter tomorrow.
The good news: finished a chapter today.
The bad news: it's one I've finished at least four times before.
This time, though, I think I finally got it right. We'll see. Still whacking at the Meereenese knot.
I took an especially vigorous hack two days ago, by switching to a new POV. It seems to have helped. Helps to have a pair of eyes on the inside rather than the outside here. And back story works better in recollections than in dialogue.
Let's hope that when next week comes, I still like what I did this week.

Spent the day in the rainwood. 1205 pages. More to come.
DANCE has now passed A CLASH OF KINGS to become the second longest volume in the series, though still three hundred pages shorter than the monster that was A STORM WITH SWORDS.

It's my favorite of the bunch so far, certainly moreso than the last book, which was well-written as always but seemed to tread water most of the time. But it set this book up beautifully, and I'm enjoying the fallout from all the kings' failed attempts on the throne.
