Just Because I Love Clocks Doesn't Mean I Update the Blog in a Timely Fashion

October 1, 2008 at 7:51 am

Um, well, the title says it all. In my defense, I would point out that it's been less than 2 full months since my last update. So, it could be worse.

But, in order to avoid having to face Glondoor in the Stone Circle of Death, I'll try to do better. Honest. More posts in the near future. Really.

In the meantime, I was recently interviewed by Travis Heermann at The Write Line. I met Travis at Worldcon in Denver this past August, when he kindly attended my reading. (That's right-- somebody who didn't know me ahead of time came to my reading! And stayed through the entire thing! And enjoyed it! Travis, you see, is a stand-up fellow.)

When he introduced himself after the reading, I realized I already knew him-- or knew of him, anyway -- because I've been reading the entertaining and enlightening interview series on his blog for quite a while. Travis asked me if I'd like to do an interview, and of course I jumped at the chance.

Anyway, the end result of my attempt to formulate intelligent answers to his thoughtful questions can be found here.

It'll be nice to see more entries. At least I'll know you're not dead. :P That's an excellent interview. And I love Travis's description of you as amazingly humble. He hit the nail right on the head. :)

You don't have to think of yourself as a brand. Your web designer will do that for you. Your web designer also wants you to mention the URL in your interviews. Are you seriously writing a screenplay? How come I always hear these things from people like Travis? I think I need to interview you more often. I'm thinking of submitting your website for a webby award. If I get juicy details about the screenplay, I'll submit it under the "Personal Website" category instead of "Food and Beverage".

Travis puts a lot of thought into his interviews. So much so that I had to think quite a bit, too. Which made it fun.

Hmm. I'd like to think it's true. In fact-- Yes! I am the HUMBLEST! EVER! Nah... you probably just think that 'cause you've never met me in person :) But thanks, nonetheless.

Not only have you created the brand, you've created my logo, too. I will be using that orrery image until the sun burns out. Which, by the way, I'm pretty sure the orrery can predict for us. I did drop the ball on the URL. What the hell was I thinking?!? Well, I wasn't. That much is clear. Yep, Melinda and I are co-writing a screenplay. Between that and the Milkweed books and Wild Cards, I'm fairly busy on the writing front. I thought I'd mentioned the screenplay? I think this would be a great "Food & Beverage" website. People come here to sup on the witty blogversations. Though lately of course many have died of scurvy, waiting for an update.
