Farnsworth: Physiotherapist, Activist, or Inventor?

Between a little general shopping for a bit of office wear – I start a real job on Monday – I padded out my fantasy collection today with the purchase of a box set of every A Song of Ice and Fire book currently released. Haven’t read them before, but am enjoying the HBO series. My reading list just keeps growing – currently reading Cloud Atlas, then I have to finish Flightless Falcon, then The Courts of the Feyre series, Wool, Prince of Thorns… then I can move on to Mr Martin’s yet-to-be-completed epic.

Probably shouldn’t do any more novel-writing until I’ve at least read all of that. No excuses for Treading Twisted Lines, though. Decided to treat the elusive story 4 – got it titled Stronger right now, but may change that to The Little Strong Girl, or something along those lines – as a fairy tale to see if that will help my continuing block against it. Unlike the others, story 4 wasn’t conceived in a flash of wondrous inspiration, you see. Hence, I’ve gotten it in my head and heart that it’s not something anyone would want to read. I just have to make this mundane-in-my-mind story more magical … though not necessarily literally.

Enough of that. Try to pick my nonsense below. Remember, no googling until you’ve had a good guess. Post in the comments which you think is correct 🙂


And now, let’s play Balderdash…
