Wouldn’t it be great if I had something to talk about today?

Because I totally don’t. I’d like to talk about writing, maybe, but I just finished one book and I’m still getting back into the other one, so I don’t really have anything on my mind either way. I just turned in a big book proposal, but it’s kind of a secret project so I don’t know if I could productively talk about it in terms of brainstorming or story creation or anything else. And then, of course, the US is playing in the World Cup this morning, so my brain is gone anyway.

Sorry. Maybe I’ll be interesting tomorrow.

    How about if you talk about the proposal process? I’ve heard of authors who just pitch a couple of sentences or a paragraph or so (Neil Gaiman, I think), and others who write a full-blown multi-page proposal document (Kevin J Anderson). Which camp do you fall into?

    I have a question for you! How often do you read… and how do you balance reading and writing? Also, do you always read in the genre that you write?

  5. I went to the local rest home and gave everyone ice cream and fresh fruit..talk amonst yourself.

    I can only answer part of that question, Kristy. Dan can probably answer the rest better. I don’t always read in the genre that I write. I like a variety including classics, fantasy, dystopias and so on. If it has a great plot and well-developed characters, I’ll try it.

    Well Dan, both our teams lost. The refs have been SOOOO bad this tourney.
