- Heh, it would be great to compare notes - though I'm quite a merciless critic!
Unfortunately, though, I can't read while I'm trying to write a novel, as I'm easily influenced by different styles of writings. At the moment I'm allowed to read parts of "Dune" because I'm writing in a very similar Third Person style. Aside from that, it's a reading fast.
I would have thought there would be other people who like the Belgariad around here - I'm sure they'll surface soon enough! Which reminds me, there's still a couple of people from "real life" I have to kidnap here.
