What to do what to do what to do...Daily Ramblings

 So, as yall might read on the small Twitter box to your right, I managed to slice of a rough 100+ of The Wise Man's Fear I got back to my base's Fleet Recreation Center at 12, and did not realize it it was 3 in the morning when I had asked! I fell asleep their, and what did I do when I woke up? Continued to read The Wise Man's Fear!! IT is a glorious book so far, and Rothfuss almost made me cry when he compared how a library is akin to a city, with all the pros and cons, and how to love in despite of. Any true reader of any medium would agree to this, which made thaat specific part of the book one of the most memeorable. Rothfuss also had me dying of laughter. I particulary loved this scene between a Master and his student, which exemplifies the intellegence of this work, the humor, and complete parody of Epic Fantasy:

“You can divide infinity an infinite number of times, and the resulting pieces will still be infinitely large,” Uresh said in his odd Lenatti accent. “But if you divide a non-infinite number an infinite number of times the resulting pieces are non-infinitely small. Since they are non-infinitely small, but there are an infinite number of them, if you add them back together, their sum is infinite. This implies any number is, in fact, infinite.”

“Wow,” Elodin said after a long pause. He leveled a serious finger at the Lenatti man. “Uresh. Your next assignment is to have sex. If you do not know how to do this, see me after class.”

I recommend The Wise Man's Fear to anyone wanting to know what Fantasy is, why you should come back to the genre, and for any writers, to change what they think about Fantasy as a whole. I myself, was in the middle of re-reading The Name of the Wind, the first book of this series, just to re-clarify and re-analyze what I had missed.

Other than that, the week has been wonderously boring, to say. Haven't really been writing. Just reading and reading, and eating, and reading. No video games either. I have just been chilling. And you know what? Not writing at the moment is alright with me. Let my ideas be on the side for now. I'm on military leave. Let me relax and enjoy a book :)
