So I've been tooling around on WoW for about a week. I can't stay (I don't have the time or personality for that sort of dedication) but it is pretty cool being back there. Seeing that dam blown to pieces I found kinda poignant. My best WoW memory from years back took place on top of that thing.

Anyway, the guild were talking about how some of the new quests made them kinda sad, but they're not as bad as the child-stealing quests from the Lich King expansion. And someone mentioned that the amount of poo-related quests are way down in Cataclysm.

To which I responded: "They missed a real opportunity there. They could have named it Scataclysm."

Just like that. Boom. No one liked it. Whereas I've been congratulating myself about it ever since.

Anyway, back to the grants. And the fine-tuning. DK got back with a low-flattery/high-substance critique. Half of which I'm already on, one golden piece of advice and a few things that make me want to blow my brains out. But hey, what else is new? On the upside his opening para went on at length about the degree to which my craft has improved. At least we agree on that. In fact what I'm hearing is what I expected. He stayed up past his bedtime because the first 100 pages just pulled him through remorselessly - which a lot of readers have said so far, about the whole book in most cases - and has an issue with the flip that occurs halfway through.

Anyway, all very fixable and in no time at all if we're using (twitch) Fateless as any sort of benchmark.
