I'm getting off to a very slow start for 2012. I began George R. R. Martin's A Game of Thrones, but I've put aside all reading to write Galactic Empress (my young adult space adventure tale). I have the binder containing the "shitty first draft" handy at all times. I am either scribbling scenes or editing as I type the handwritten scenes on the computer. So my reading list for 2012 will likely be much shorter.
