Aztec Camera - Knife

In Case of Emergency

After giving myself a month off after finishing the revisions of Knife (well, not counting the crash-and-burn I did at the end of February when I was trying to work on Touching Indigo and my brain was having none of it), I resolved to start in on Wayfarer again, and try to reestablish the habit of writing 2-3 hours a day, every day.

The first session today went... not so well. In fact, it was positively depressing. After a while I gave up and tried to read one of the books my editor sent me, but I just wasn't feeling the love. So I turned to one of my favorite comfort reads, Patricia McKillip's The Forgotten Beasts of Eld, and it felt like relaxing into a warm mental bath. Even my tortured inner line-editor shut up after the first few pages.

What are your favorite comfort reads?
