Apologies for being quiet here. I’m busy a) studying for the GRE, because I’m thinking about getting an MFA, and b) talking elsewhere, which has absorbed most of the free chat time I had available. Per the latter, I’m on a mailing list with some other authors, constituting the Locus Roundtable. Basically, our moderator (usually Karen Burnham) throws out an interesting question. Then she lets us do what writers do best (aside from writing), which is blather on about whatever tickles our fancy, while she collects the answers. The latest question actually spawned several subthreads of discussion, which will all be posted over the next few days. It’s good stuff, and I’m still amazed and honored to have been given the chance to blather on with these particular folks, many of whom are way more established and respected than me. And more importantly, they’re fun to talk to.
So check it out! And in the meantime, wish me luck.
