Well, we’re approaching the end of this month.
If you look at the Future Books post, you’ll see that stuff is ranked on likelihood. Stuff listed as more likely requires fewer votes. Think of it as a compromise between democracy and my favorite form of government provided I’m on top, dictatorship.
Graceling 60 (34%)
Wither 58 (33%)
Battle Royale 53 (30%)
Elantris 28 (16%)
House of Night 24 (13%)
Temeraire 22 (12%)
Sexteen/XVI 22 (12%)
Witchblade 12 (6%)
Eon/Eona 10 (5%)
The Scorpio Races 10 (5%)
See, from this, it should go Graceling, Wither, Battle Royale, and then Elantris as a distant fourth. But I really want to do Wither, while Graceling was a lower tier, so I’m going with Wither first. Then there’s the issue that Battle Royale had 44% of voters voting against in the other poll. Not sure what to make of that.
Currently, I’m planning on doing Wither, then Graceling. Graceling, though, looks like it’s more a Hunger Games level time investment (or more) than Summoning or Gemma were, so I may put that off in order to do it properly. Maybe I’ll do Elantris early, since I think it’d be easier given it’ll be the second time through.
I’m also considering what to do with WWZ. You may notice it’s not on the poll, that’s because I was always going to do it and it’s listed as such. Since the chapters are somewhat standalone, I’m considering doing those for interludes – I’ll start a book on the beginning of a month, and if it runs over or finishes under, I’ll post WWZ until the next month starts.
And I think it’d be fun to do a first-gen run at some point, with Blue. As a bonus, my computer can actually run that, so I can get easy screenshots and you can glory in 90s gameboy graphics.
Lastly, I finally read the beginning of the initial trilogy of Exalted books (a widely hated batch) and found them intriguing from a writing perspective, so I’m thinking of doing those. (They’d also be a nice break.)
At the end of the month, when I move on to Wither, I’ll post a new poll set.
