Early this week I stood next to a man on the MTR who was reading a yellowed paperback that looked like a thriller or mystery. I read the title and author, but now I can't remember what they were. I think the author was Abney or Abnar something. Does anyone have any idea who it might have been? I saw a boy of about fourteen reading a slate gray Kindle outside my favorite Vietnamese restaurant (Nha Trang for you HK people). The person I was with was listening to Reamde by Neal Stephenson as an audiobook. I counted four Chinese books and two Hong Kong guidebooks this week.
My Nanowrimo writing came to a grinding halt this week. I had the opportunity to work on three different editing projects (one paid, one voluntary, and one with my awesome writing partner), so that took away from my writing time. I am laying the groundwork to launch a freelance editing venture within a year, so I'm excited about the opportunity to work on a few manuscripts before then. Please keep me in mind if you need an editor or proofreader!
