Coming up for air

Wow! August already? July went by so fast I lost track of time. I’m about halfway done with Unbound—that’s the current title of my next book—and my muse is demanding fresh fuel to keep the writing flames stoked.

So lately I’ve been reading manga. The medium is different enough from novels that I hope it will stimulate my muse. What sort of titles? My tastes run the gamut from high school stories like Hana-Kimi (I now have the complete series plus the art book) and Boku ni Natta Watashi, to medical drama like Team Medical Dragon, to sports like Ice Revolution, and paranormal like Bound Beauty and 07 Ghost.

Manga isn’t exactly a new interest since my copies of Crying Freeman, Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon, Nausicaa, Rayearth, Fushigi Yuugi are more than ten years’ old. However, it’s been a while since I’ve added to my collection. I’m looking forward to more!

Now back to Unbound…
